Notes for 10/8/2006

It has been a couple of weeks since I last made a “notes” post. I guess that’s what happens when you’re in the middle of launching a product and travelling to a trade show! Anyway, here are this week’s notes:

Favorite songs at the moment:
High Energy Song: “Ready to Fall” by Rise Against
Low Energy Song: “Chasing Cars” by Snow Patrol
Random Song: “Anything” by JoJo (it samples heavily from Toto’s “Africa”)

Currently reading:
“The End of Poverty: Economic Possibilities for Our Time” by Jeffrey Sachs

Recently read:
“The Wisdom of Crowds” by James Surowiecki
I finished the book on the plane on the way to Ontario, CA for the Portable Media Expo. I thought the book was great, but that’s not surprising, because the main idea he presents is just so darn intriguing. I highly recommend this book.

  1. I thought those Moo cards were kind of cool when I saw them on the Lifeclever website. You’re always on top of the trends. I love the song, Chasing Cars – according to iTunes I’ve played it 117 times. I bought it after the season finale of Grey’s Anatomy.

  2. See you for dinner Kim!

    I try to stay on top of things Shermie 🙂 It’s much harder to miss the cool stuff when you read a few hundred blogs! Only thing with the Moo cards is that they are almost too small. I don’t know where I would use them.

  3. Hmm, wouldn’t work so well for me, but I think you have a great idea there. I know if I was given such a card, especially with the girl’s picture on it (but you know, so you can only see part of her, play up the smallness of the card) I’d probably think it was pretty damn cool.
