Facebook has had a rough ride on the stock market since its IPO a few weeks ago. The stock has steadily declined while rumors of insider trading and other shady activities will not go away. However, just because Facebook had a poor showing on the stock market doesn’t mean all companies will suffer the same […]

Google dependency

My internet connection is not great in Bali. I think now my internet bill is higher than my monthly rent! Partly because I moved to a cheaper place and now paying to have it in our office. From time to time, Google.com stops working. They seem to have some serious problems with their proxy. The […]

I don’t read Darren Rowse’s Problogger so much any more, but I just got an email notification that he is launching a new blogging forum on the .com version of his website. I always wondered why Darren never launched a forum on his blogging website, as I was always sure that it would be successful, […]

Using Google Chrome

My laptop is still going strong after a couple of years, but it is starting to get slower and slower, mainly when starting up. I am reluctant to buy a new one as this one has been so reliable. A reinstall of the Windows would help a lot, but I can’t bothered with that. I […]

I just finished reading the “The Wolf of Wall Street” by Jordan Belfort. It’s a good read and a book which is hard to put down. It is the story of Jordan Belfort’s rise in the stock market world and dramatic fall as he battles an addiction to drugs. You won’t learn much about Wall […]

I can’t believe how much people are talking about the latest Google PageRank update! It even made the front page of the Sydney Morning Herald newspaper in Australia (at least the online version). It’s not going to stop me selling links, at least on this blog. I am still making money with Text Link Ads […]

The World is Flat

For the past month or so I haven’t read a single book. Traveling through Vietnam and Laos the pickings have been pretty slim, especially in the way on non-fiction. I am in Bangkok now and I picked up a copy of “The World is Flat” after hearing it had some similar themes to the Four […]

Mail from a Forbes reporter

Back in April I received an email from Andrew Greenberg from Forbes. He was writing an article on Google’s supplemental index. He found me through a comment I made on Aaron Wall’s blog. He wanted me to call him to discuss his story. (I need to get a phone one of these days!) I was […]

I have read some good reviews of this book and not surprisingly it has been getting a great deal of attention in the internet marketing and blogging world. I am currently in Vietnam so I am not sure how I can get my hands on a copy of this book. Many of the topics the […]

Life of Pi

I just started reading ‘Life of Pi’. I really like this quote from it: I have nothing to say of my working life, only that a tie is a noose, and inverted though it is, it will hang a man nonetheless if he’s not careful. I couldn’t agree more!
