Can't wait for this to go live!
 
Starting to test Google Domains

It's 2014 and it seems obvious, but across laptops, tablets and mobile devices, a website is one of the first places people go to find information about a business. But amazingly, our research shows that 55% of small businesses still don't have one. 

So as we explore ways to help small businesses succeed online (through tools like Google My Business [http://goo.gl/Ajvbn5] ), we thought it made sense to look more closely at the starting point of every business’s online presence - a website. And that starts with a domain name.

We’re beginning to invite a small number of people to kick the tires on Google Domains [http://goo.gl/pHvjoO], a domain registration service we’re in the process of building. Businesses will be able to search, find, purchase and transfer the best domain for their business - whether it’s .com, .biz, .org, or any of the wide range of new domains that are being released to the Web. 
 
Google Domains isn’t fully-featured yet, but we’re giving a small group of people the ability to buy and transfer domains through it and send feedback on their experience. (You currently need an invitation code to do so, sorry!) We want input on all the ways we can help make finding, buying, transferring and managing a domain a simple and transparent experience. We also want to make sure our customer support and infrastructure works flawlessly, and that we have the right additional services (like mobile website creation tools and hosting services from a range of providers, as well as domain management support). We're working with some of the top website building providers like +Shopify, +Squarespace, +Weebly, and +Wix.com  to help make that happen.

While we’re still building out all of the features, our goal is to make Google Domains more widely available soon. You can check out the first cut of what we’re working on at www.google.com/domains.

an oldie, but a goodie
 
On the way out of the Syfy party on Saturday night, a pretty horrible thing happened. I wasn't going to talk about it in public, but I can't stop thinking about it, and I think this needs to be said.

If you camp out in front of my hotel while I am on location or visiting a city, if you camp out in front of a party I'm attending ... basically, if you camp out anywhere so you can shove a stack of 8x10s into my face when I'm trying to enter or leave a location, I'm not going to sign them, and I'm not going to be nice about it.

I refuse to reward or validate that kind of behavior, and I'm done being polite about it.

when we walked out of the SyFy party on Saturday night, a pack of people -- probably 12 or 15, I'd guess -- appeared out of nowhere, and surrounded me. They shoved pictures into my face, thrust pens at me, and made it so that I couldn't even move. They separated me from my friends and my son, and, quite frankly, terrified me.

Let's stop for a second and think about this: in what kind of world is it acceptable to surround a person you do not know, separate them from the people they are with, and essentially trap them? Maybe in crazy entitled psycho world, but not the world I live in.

I tried to scrawl my signature on a couple of things, just so some of those people would move and let me keep on walking, but whenever someone took something away, something new immediately took its place. Somehow, +Felicia Day saved me. She reached through the mob, grabbed my hand, and said, "Sorry, we have to go meet some of our friends," before the literally pulled me away, to safety.

This is when the mob lost its shit. They yelled at me like I had done something wrong. They called me names, and they booed at me. (Seriously). A woman stormed up next to me and said, "If you don't sign these things for me, I'm going to tell Twitter what an asshole you really are."

I looked her square in the eye, turned on my dad voice, and said, "Really? Are you serious? We're done here." I quickened my pace, and for the next two blocks she followed us, screaming and ranting and raving about how she'd waited there for hours, driven all the way from someplace far, and that I basically owed her. I eventually tuned her out, and I guess she went back to the Syfy party to harass whoever else came out, next.

The whole thing was really scary, made me feel like a sideshow freak, and made me really, really angry. I was just trying to walk out of a hotel and go meet up with my friends. I didn't do anything wrong, and I'm not going to apologize for it.

I realize that a person who thinks it's entirely normal and not psycho to camp out in front of a hotel for hours and hours so they can trap a person isn't going to understand why I will not validate that behavior, but I need to make this clear for the future: I'm a person. I'm happy to sign things and take pictures with people in appropriate situations, but if some dude violates my personal space or freaks me out, and then gets mad at me when I try to get away from him, I'm not going to do anything beyond telling that person to go fuck himself, and I'm not going to feel bad about it.

Edit, because this is important: I realize that anyone reading this isn't one of Those Guys. Please don't think the "you" here refers to, you know, you.

This is everything a Glee mashup wishes it was. Hard to believe that no instruments were used in the making of this. #haunting

IMO: Making money for yourself is vastly different than helping others earn money. What do you think?

"Do we really want a president who isn't rich?"

imagination is more important than knowledge, but knowledge is still power
Introduction
first & foremost: I currently live in Tampa/St. Petersburg

Skype: cj_slim <--- good way to reach me
I'm rarely Available, but I ALWAYS check my missed IMs.
ps - you can always call / text

need more?

My name's CJ. I'm a guy and I have the most amazing wife in the world. I love to write, but not so much when it's labeled "READ ABOUT ME!!!" My favorite drinks are (in no particular order):
  • double rum and cherry coke
  • amaretto sour
  • long island iced tea
I love the scent of freshly cut grass & being in the pit while a great band rocks my face off. I enjoy rock climbing and singing at the top of my lungs (when no one is listening). I ♥ crazy Florida weather, almost as much as I ♥ seeing a fresh layer of snow in the morning. I love black and white photography and warm towels (fresh out of the dryer). I ♥ pineapples and strawberries, kindness and forgiveness, getting to know people willing to make sacrifices for the sake of others, but most of all, I love being alive and finding my purpose.

I'm a music whore
and proud of the music I listen to.... there is no guilty pleasure (with the exception of "Toxic" by Britney Spears). I own over 300 cds. Support your bands and buy their album(s). Download rap.

music is the voice of my heart
and the pain of my soul

I graduated from Georgia Southern University in August of 05 - B.S. in Information Technology. Since then, I've had my fair share of ups and downs. However, upon moving to Florida, I've strived to create a new life for myself and the Lord has blessed me in ways I can't even begin to describe. I miss all my friends from Georgia, but I've fully embraced what I've found in Florida.

still need more?

ask me a question, I'll tell you no lies
