After a busy night in SF, I just would like to state the two very important rules for pirates: #2: One eyepatch good, two eyepatches very bad. #1: Too much Rum make you forget rule #2
I really thought I had found the worst Powerpoint ever presented by a CEO that should know better. But Seth Godin has found a worthy contestant.
Norwegian crime author Jørgen Jæger wants to kill you in his next book. But only if you want to. And you’re getting paid. Here’s what he says on krimjager.com (in Norwegian): Kjære krimvenn! Jeg sitter i disse dager fordypet i skrivingen av neste års kriminalroman om lensmann Ole Vik. Handlingen tar til på Korsneset syd [...]

What happened to “Macs are for queers?” (and note the title of the comic).
No. 20 is my favourite.

Great. So for 2007 I decide that you all start behaving. Ok? No more hitting each other in the [...]
Recently I came over two posts on Flickr, where people asked for advice on what to do. First it was Jason Kottke that wanted an opinion on his new glasses. (original post on Flickr here). Then Matt Mullenweg wanted some advice on which dress his girlfriend should wear in an upcoming wedding: (original Flickr posts [...]
