Justilien – So Long and Thanks for All the Links

August 18th, 2006 Tony 2 comments

Its been a busy week here at NotSleepy with several new hires including another programmer who had done some horrifically tedious, blow your brains out data entry for us in the past. :) PHP and Java coding should be a far more gratifying work experience for him.

link building

Justilien (formerly of WeBuildPages) just left our office to head home after spending a week here in Raleigh training some new link builders we’ve just added to the organization. Justilien did two days of very well organized presentation on link building as well as core SEO fundamentals and followed that up with three days of hands on training. Judging from the work they’ve already accomplished in one week with Justilien’s guidance I’d say we’re looking as some quality links coming down the pipeline very soon. Thanks much for the outstanding consulting you’ve provided this week Justilien.

Flickr falls short

August 15th, 2006 Tony 1 comment

Dang! It seems every photo solution is just not quite there yet. My major complaint with Flickr is that they just don’t add the last nice tidbit that would make slideshow a killer app. Currently slideshow doesn’t show title or description.

How about some SF shots? Just don’t do slideshow cause I spent way too much time on titles. :)

I Heart Flickr

August 4th, 2006 Tony No comments

Ok, I’ve been in a slow moving relationship with Flickr for the past year or two. Flic wooed me with its super free-easy websites after much frustration with PHP Gallery. I placed a few photos… chilled for a while… placed a few more… and so on. In the past 6 months I’ve really been getting into it since I decided it was worth the small fee for the unlimited sets.

This takes the cake.


Read the comment on my metrocard bike photo. Thanks Andy Padre! Thanks Flickr! Made my day.

Andy Padre, I think you have a knack for viral marketing and don’t even realize it! Call me. :)

Andy Beal Leaves His Company Fortune Interactive

August 4th, 2006 Tony 1 comment

I had heard a rumor one day ago that Andy Beal may be leaving his own company Fortune Interactive due to some issues with the investors. Today I received an email from him saying that he is leaving the company even though he was the “co-founder, equity holder and CEO”. Andy says that “circumstances have taken place that unfortunately lead me to move on”.

How ironic that this comes on the same day that Mike Grehan announces leaving Marketsmart Interactive.

I wish you all the best Andy and I look forward to seeing you at SES San Jose.

Pimpin’ SES San Jose 2006

August 2nd, 2006 Tony 3 comments

Myself, Ekky, Jay and Mike are flying into San Francisco a few days before SES San Jose to mess around in the city. The boys from across the pond want to live like true gas guzzling Americans while they are here so I rented a big pimpin’ Navigator to drive down 101 to San Jose (Yes, I’ve already checked and the hotel valet is willing to park this beast).

Hoes start runnin when they see my car
Even though I’ma pro wrestling star
they know I, don’t play and I gotta get paid
Everything I wear baby’s tailor made

If we could only get some PimpStars loaded up on this puppy!
