Many people have never heard of Reid Hoffman but everyone knows the companies that he's associated with.   Hoffman originally started as an executive with Paypal and took the money from the eBay sale and made some of the best investments of our time.  Now a partner at Greylock, Hoffman has made billions by being an angel investor in some of the biggest online companies in the world.  Take a look at the investments of Hoffman.  Most people would be fortunate to have just one of these let alone an early investor.

Thursday’s Daily Domain Drop and Auction Picks

By - June 30, 2011 - 2 Comments
Another rough list today.  Big names have been a little short this last week but then again, it's the time that you have to look a little deeper that you find the real diamonds.  I apologize for lack of quality content lately (OK, it's never great quality but usually entertaining) but this whole Ironman training is kicking my butt.  Ten mile run in the morning and the 30 mile bike at night only to wake up the next morning and swim a mile and half and bike another 30 that night.  Add in some 70-100 mile bikes on weekends and 17-20 mile runs and you'll see that it's bordering ridiculous.   I will sa...

“Boond boond se ghada bharta hain”: 8 Sites I Learn From Every Day

By - June 29, 2011 - 1 Comment
I saw this quote in a post on DnForum by MediaWiz.  It means " The Cup of Knowledge is Filled One Drop at a Time".  It's an old Hindi saying that I really like because it captures my approach to learning and life.  Work on things a little each day and eventually you'll be amazed at what you have over time.  Similar to my saying of "inch by inch, life's a cinch", in today's impatient world, many young people don't realize that things take time.  Everyone wants to know what you know, have what you have, but they don't want to put in the time it takes to get there.   When it comes to learning how to...

Wednesday’s Daily Domain Drop and Auction Picks

By - June 29, 2011 - 1 Comment
During my daily scanning of articles I came across this excellent video from last week on the effects of the newest Panda update. It has a lot of good questions for SEO specialist and site owners to ponder but I think there is one conclusion. Google wants you to not only provide good content, it now wants you to engage your user. They will give you "extra credit" if your users share your info, spread the word about its greatness. On the flip side, if they are pissed that you have no content and ad filled site they are going to ding you. Life is getting harder for the people that have no desire to w... Read More »

Tuesday’s Daily Domain Drop and Auction Picks

By - June 28, 2011 - 5 Comments
Today's list is a little short but I'll try and add some more early in the morning.  Nothing really impressed me today and certainly no 5 digit names (ok 1) on the list but still some value.  On a side note, good to see Tia back blogging. Her articles tend to be "back to basics" but they are great to remind yourself of what to do.  Take a look after you go through the names. Everyone loves Free.  And everyone loves going somewhere so this should be a good buy.  No bidders.  1999 Birthday Not exactly sure what to do but stalking old girlfriends keeps coming to m...
