The CEO of bloglines asserts that Stealth Start-Ups Suck. He goes on to state that a start-up shouldn’t be stealth for longer than 3 month before going public and gathering feedback. Is it a coincidence that BookAnExpert gained proper commitment from Kyran and myself back in April, and we’re about to launch the first service? […]
Duncan has just launched his blog using the rather cool WordPress. He’s also just released the third version of JobTrawler, a Java based app to assist in job searching via sites like JobSite.
Steve Jobs gave the Commencement Address at Stanford a few days back. At first I ignored it, the original Slashdot title was Steve Jobs In Praise of Dropping Out and it all sounded a bit mushy. Having actually read it, I find I quite agree with what he says. I particularly like “If today were […]

We have the inspired addition of Van Wilder: Party Liason‘s Ryan Reynolds as an ex-vampire playboy gay vampire-killer, with his collection of one-liners and silly faces. But the vampire Pomeranian dog? The music was […]
