Seems like the only skateboards I see these days are used as an art canvas (or in a Tony Hawk videogame). I guess I’m not crazy, there’s a whole book on the subject.
In NYC Sunday-Wednesday for a little break from the perfect weather Miami is having. One plus though, outdoor ice skating….and I didn’t fall once!
The survey was conducted by GfK NOP on behalf of price comparison service 60207, and revealed that 13% of men would swap their significant other for gadgets, compared to just 6% of women. The percentages are higher for younger age groups, and lower for older folks.
I’m guessing this number is about right. At least 20% of all relationships are on the edge of breaking up anyway, why not take a parting gift?!
and it’s fantastic.
You can browse AP news by category(there’s about 10, ranging from sports to technology) or hop on the globe and look around by area. Each article is easy to read from the couch, unlike the Opera browser channel, and the categories run like an RSS reader, making for a quick visual scan. The globe browsing is great because you can see exactly where something is happening. Much needed for us Americans who generally lack geography skills.
Considering they allow it for all regular season Dolphins game, something is odd here. Maybe it’s a ploy to keep the parking lot from filling up with people who don’t have tickets. Either way, it’s an easy way to piss off fans.

Today my eyes were opened, there are other dotcoms in Miami. Usually I’m working with our team in California or agencies in New York or Chicago, so little attention is paid to the scene down here. I’m hoping refreshmiami and Barcamp Miami are the tip of the iceberg, but my gut is telling me otherwise. Either way I will definitely be attending some of these conferences.
They must trust their predicting system.
Unfortunately it’s non-alcoholic, so my dog will be sticking to Miller High Life. It’s supposedly fit for humans, so I’m guessing it doesn’t taste like dog anus and garbage.

Who knew it was in downtown San Antonio? I’ve always pictured it out in the desert, but I guess that was 150 years ago. There’s some kind of conpiracy though, because searching google, there’s very very few images showing the alamo with it’s surrounding buildings. Yet the hotel I was staying in was 15 stories tall and my room overlooked The Alamo. Must be some Texas pride thing.
And like Pee Wee, they didn’t have my bicycle in the basement.
Saw San Antonio’s Riverwalk area for the first time this weekend as well. I really liked it’s setup and the great architecture. However for a Saturday night, it was empty. Also many boarded up stores/restaurants and the people that were there didn’t give off a vibe fitting of the place.
The game is completely luck, socializing is minimal (everyones busy rolling or scoring) and watching people flip coins or play ‘war’ with a deck of cards would probably be more exciting.
Basically everyone rolls dice for six rounds trying to match each die to the round number. If someone rolls three of a kind, three 1’s in round 1 for example, they score a BUNCO and win the round. There’s a 1 in 216 chance of this happening.
I know all of the above because I had to sit through 13 hours of housewives playing BUNCO yesterday. Fortunately the event raised some money to fight breast cancer.
