Thong-A-Thon 2006

Well, Dan Raine’s 15k Challenge is now over. Was it a success? Hell yes! Did he make the 15k in 30 days? Not quite, but that was never really the point. From a standing start, Dan has gone from nothing at all to a total of $12,565.81 How could anyone possibly think that equates to failing the task. While it’s true that the elusive 15k didn’t quite materialize, 12k is nothing to sneeze at. So all in all, a pretty sucessful month for Dan, and one I congratulate him for.

Now we get onto more important issues. The pink thong. At some point in time very soon, Dan will will be donning the pink thong, and parade himself around in a manner as yet not disclosed, and upload the historic event to YouTube. Rest assured, as soon as it happens I’ll post the link here. Look out lonelygirl15, your 15 minutes are up, so there’s a new YouTube star on the horizon!

The Web 2.0 Drinking Game

This drinking game comes via the blog on scifi.com Considering it deals with most of the sites that are becoming tools of the trade for us, it seems like a pretty good choice. I’d like to nominate it as the Official Underachiever Drinking Game.

Yes, it’s the Web 2.0 Drinking Game, so pull up a chair, grab your
favorite intoxicator, and get some friends together before you start.
After all, the only thing more pathetic than playing a drinking game
based on websites is doing it alone. And this of course is not the last
word, as the Web 2.0 Drinking Game, much like the Web 2.0, is a living
thing that thrives on user input. Got some ideas for a Del.icio.us
section? Maybe some Facebook rules?

It’s a pretty funny read, so do yourself a favor and go check out the article.

How Much Would You Pay?

Sony has now entered the online video market and has set a benchmark for the value of online video services. If the quote below doesn’t make you sit up and take notice of how valuable online video is becoming then nothing will!

YouTube could be a steal at $1 billion | CNET News.com

Sony’s acquisition Wednesday of Grouper, which owns less than 1 percent of the online video market, begs a rather obvious question about its far larger rival YouTube, which owns 43 percent market share: If a company were to buy YouTube tomorrow, what would it have to pay?
