Five Million hits for Guy's 6 month-old-Alltop website!

I just clicked on a link at the top of my gmail that went to Guy Kawasaki's latest blog post about his aggregating (as opposed to aggravating...ha) Alltop website. It seems that it is doing well and he has a powerful endorsement from Microsoft.

Microsoft, the first advertiser on Alltop, had this to say, “Alltop is one of the most useful sites on the web, and for companies interested in reaching customers, among the most effective. For Microsoft, one ad on the Mac page of Alltop is like taking out dozens on targeted sites and blogs. Alltop should be the first stop for advertisers needing to reach a wide variety of targeted customers.” Sheridan Jones, director of marketing, Macintosh Business Unit, Microsoft.
And here are some key stats:

Update and Background
  • Age of site: 180 days
  • Total page views: Over five million
  • Total number of topics: 213

Excerpt: Break into the Global Market Place

Here is a link to an article titled Break into the Global Market Place:

It talks about the different trade agreements we have with different countries. It also mentions a book titled: Doing Business Anywhere: The Essential Guide to Going Global. I wonder how the information might apply to Vernie's business?

This is a test!

This is a test to see how it posts!



Interview with Jimmy Wales of Wikipedia, 9-07

Dear Gang,
Here is a YouTube clip of a Sept. '07, Wall Strip interview of Jimmy Wales, the founder of WIKIPEDIA (and the YouTube link below!):

Interviewer: "You talk a lot about wanting the sum of all knowledge to be open to all. What is the end game of that? What do you people to use the knowledge to do?"
Jimmy Wales: "I could get very Utopian about this but I think most conflict and war is the direct result of ignorance. Poverty is largely caused by lack of educational resources..."

The thing that is very interesting about YouTube is that you can type in all kinds of people's names, and often, there will be one of more interviews of them. It is very nice to put a name with a face and a voice...and an interview!

Bye for now,

Cat Massaging a dog video...funny!

Dear Gang,
