today and it made me think of this video
I did with him a while back.

: Go ahead
: How do you say obnoxious little sister in Yiddish
: Vahksin zuls du vi a tsibeleh, mitten kup in drerd

: (silence)… Continue

When it's time to shut the computer and go to bed, if you force yourself maybe a couple of extra minutes, sometimes you find something that made those extra few minutes worth it. Like tonight for instance, I don't know how many other people will find this interesting but if you look at this page
which looks like a… Continue

From the reason SnapTalent.com closed it's doors.
"The online recruitment space has its own unique market dynamics that restrict innovation on the company side. From the outset, online recruitment spend is huge. Its a market with the right fundamentals from the outside looking in. Its a large market ($10B/year spend), with rich customers, and poor innovation. It sounds like an entrepreneur's dream.

I love twitter for a lot of reasons. I'm happy that I am alive in the same era that twitter arrived in because I love it that much.

About a month ago… Continue

I saw the other day that a new employee referral system launched called MyJobReferrals.com

and I have logged a lot of hours on the phone solidifying a solid relationship based on the the love of two fundamental addictions in our life we both have. The first is recruiting and the second is domain names.
Two weeks ago Harry calls me up and says I just bought a really good domain name. I'm jealous immediately and he then shows me why it's so good but I don't need graphs or stuff to know it's good and he knows it… Continue

A group of investors have purchased the domain name wirelessjobs.com from me and Dennis Smith
