Gearing Up for Las Vegas

November 30th, 2007

Next week I’m headed to Las Vegas for PubCon, the year’s most anticipated search engine marketing conference. I’m really getting excited about this, as I haven’t been to a search marketing conference in several years. I’ve also never been to Vegas, so it should be fun to see the city and take lots of pictures. I’m not really a gambler, but I might try my hand at blackjack once or twice if I can round up some loose change.nyny

Me and two co-workers are staying at the New York-New York, which looks really sweet (rollercoaster and everything). Gotta give credit to NMG for investing some money into my team and rewarding our guys for some hard work these last few months. Out of the three of us who are going, I’m the only one who’s ever been to something similar, so I’m really excited for Zach and Brent cause I know they’ll learn a ton.

Look for a post-conference report next week!

Yahoo Pipes is Fun!

November 16th, 2007

I played around with Yahoo Pipes the other night, and I had a blast!. Basically, it let’s you manipulate multiple RSS feeds, join them, sort them, filter them and more, then output it all into anew, distinct feed of your own. Awesome! I used it in conjuction with Craigslist, since you can syndicate any search done at craigslist (look at the bottom of the page). I was looking at used cars, and there are about 6 models that I’m interested in. I was able to take the RSS feeds from all six searches, join them together with Yahoo Pipes and now I have one feed that keeps track of all 6 car searches in real time. I’m definitely going to be using this more in the future.

Migrating from POP to IMAP

November 3rd, 2007

I’ve finally decided to move my email from POP to IMAP, now that I have two computers. Well, I thought this would be a great time to cleanup my inbox so the migration would be quicker and cleaner. Man…I need help. Over 2500 emails in my inbox with no particular organization at all. What a beating!

Am I the only one who doesn’t file emails effectively? How many emails are in your inbox?
