Hi from CA Dec 27 2005

Just had a lovely Christmas with the family in California. It has been somewhat sunny, somewhat rainy. But temperature-wise, t-shirt / jeans weather when sunny, fleece hoody when overcast and light jacket when raining. Lots of fun seeing my brother, two sisters, mom and step-dad.

Will be out here until Jan 1, then back to STL.

Niner Niner is ranked #39 out of 64 blog networks. We have 223 writers and a platform that is flexible and has scaled really well so far, based on a bunch of custom PHP scripts and the ever so awesome WordPress platform.

Kind of neat to see that someone thinks that it’s worth $217,386.00. How they came up with that number exactly, I’m not sure. But cool nonetheless.

Update about the $ valuation number:

Where does this value number come from anyways?

The current blog “value” amount is based on work done earlier by the Business Opportunities Weblog and Tristian Louis. The numbers are based on a valuation of the Weblogs, Inc. acquisition by AOL. We don’t put much weight in it, but it’s fun to play with.

All night at Vibe Dec 12 2005

No sleep til brooklyn...

After driving home from Chicago last night, walked the dog, then took a nice shower, then made the bed for Ken since his key wasn’t working for his front door, then off to Coffee Cartel for 2 mochas and a latte and a dozen donuts. And now, here at 10:09 am, starting to feel a little bit fried. 🙂

Will have to take a nap today maybe.

HyperCamp. You don’t have to be a geek, just a blogger. Bring your laptop. A long table, lots of connectivity, soft drinks, fast food, and get this — if you have a story you want to tell, a product you want to announce, an idea you want to pitch, at each end of the room there are presentation stations, with 15 chairs in front, a podium and projector. You sign up to brief. Any blogger who wants to listen can, or not; their choice.
