A Set of Unrelated Loosely Interesting Thoughts
Much of yesterday was spent running errands and attending #WooTO
, so coming up with a blog post wasn't on the forefront of my mind. Instead, today we get a few random thoughts:
ONE: If I were to chart out the progress made for the 2010 20K, it would be a sum total of three bar charts – money earned, money saved, money lost due to refunds. Now let us note that the refunds aren't due to bad service or inferior product… but simply friends who are impulse shoppers. Friends that read this blog. Yes, I'm calling you out 🙂 Still love ya, though, so worry not.
TWO: We need more Peter Silvermans. One would think that with the amount of information that's available on the Internet these days that we would no longer need a source like Silverman Helps, but I think it's much the opposite. With informed consumers, I think it helps everyone, because theoretically, only the businesses with good practices would stay afloat. (One would hope.)
Torontoist's I Want Your Job
is pretty awesome (thanks to R.T.
for alerting me to it on my Google Reader!); it's always interesting to see what jobs people are really passionate about and how they got there – for one day, I'll likely try to take it from them 🙂 (Or something.)
Hopefully some updates from the more creative side of life for the rest of the week – let me know if there's anything in particular you want to see!
