Obama Photoset

I ran across this incredible flickr photoset this morning and had to share it. This is a great glimpse into the moments leading up to his acceptance speech on Tuesday night. I am struck by not only the transparency of the Obama campaign, but their clever use of social media in getting their message out. The American public has never had this kind of access to information, and I find it very refreshing.
On the flip side, I dread the future glut of “Social Media Political” consultants that are bound to start polluting our lifestreaming apps and social networks.

Blogging Deficit and Creative Downturn

First off , I need a bailout. I need someone to write blog posts for me so my precious dollars aren’t wasted on web hosting. Seriously though, it has been a busy month, and I just haven’t had the time to write anything.

You can look forward to great stuff coming soon though. I am planning on re-writing all of my ski and snow related tools from the ground up, so keep an eye out for that. That means ski conditions rss feeds, maps, and twitter updates. I’m even considering doing a little ski conditions widget that you can throw on your own site. Let me know if you have any other ideas of cool stuff that I should do in that vein.

So in the absence of any other good content, I leave you with this beautiful image of my friend: Irish Whiskey. He has maintained me well over the last month.

Time Flies

My wife and I just celebrated our 5th wedding anniversary recently. The whole “5 years” thing hit me, and caused me to reflect. If I look at any other 5 year snippet of my life, it doesn’t even start to compare. The last 5 years have been the best, and as good times usually go, they flew by.

To celebrate, Mary and I enjoyed a wedding gift from a friend. It took some will power to wait five years, but it was worth it.

Thanks for the cool gift Jennifer.

And to all future wedding attendees, you should try this out for a gift:

Bottle of Champagne (for 1 year anniv.)

Bottle of Wine(for 5 year anniv.)

Bottle of Port(for 10 year anniv.)

It is a risky bet in a country with a 50% divorce rate, but at the very least your newly divorced friend may invite you over to drink it with them. Or have them accelerate the schedule (1 month, 6months, 1 year) ?? Either way, it’s a cool idea.

Thanks for an awesome 5+ years Mary…
