How to Find Lost Objects

Some days everything is lost. But this amazing little meme is going around the Internet like crazy. Simple problem. Simple and amazing solution. I wonder how many people buy the book just out of Gratitude. I wonder how many people make a little poster out of the principles? I know I am. I wonder how many people would buy the poster?

Pricing a Project - Blue Flavor

And how right on this is. I find it difficult to show a client how much the project costs. But this provides a very straightforward presentation and so either you estimate the hours or simply record them.

Albino Blacksheep - Flash / Honda Accord Ad

You thought those people that set up roomfuls of dominos to knock over were

minor, didn't work.

Mr. Lube Okay I have to admit I'm impressed. I got a nice personalized letter from the manager of the the Lube shop I went to last week. As one of my buddies says "They look to the uninformed market and upsell like crazy." Did I really need that new PCV valve? No probably not but at least they didn't try to upsell me on my clean air filter. And they caught the broken CV boot. Fo a guy on the fly who doesn't want to mess with oil and lube... a great deal. And for a longer post here is the letter:

Base Camp

Chance Ruder came to my attention yesterday through a blog that I read regularly. 14 years old and making a difference in the world that he would like to see. Reads like he had a pretty unique upbringing but still a pretty amazing story.
