Map of 2013 Monona Garage Sale!

City of Monona is having a community garage sale this weekend. 50+ homes participating. I decided to map the addresses using BatchGeo to make it easier for everyone.  I used the original list of addresses from this page.
  http://business.monona.com/Events/details/monona-city-wide-garage-sale-18
I have tried to map all the addresses participating in the garage sale. I got the addresses from the event info here. http://business.monona.com/Events/details/monona-city-wide-garage-sale-18 Just trying to be helpful! Please double check. Not responsible for incorrect data! Couple of addresses didn't resolve properly so they are not on the map.

Bravo Amazon!   After all these years i'm still amazed at your customer service.

Last night, the mobile site on my phone said Discovery Channel's "Life" was eligible for Prime viewing. But when I tried to watch it on the desktop, it wasn't available.    

When I called Amazon this morning about it  the rep apologized and said he will be adding the ENTIRE show to my video library for free as compensation!

Why isn't the 'wowing the customer' policy more common?!  Apple and Amazon demonstrate the benefits of customer satisfaction so clearly.

Two huge wins for Google+ today
- the Google+ iPad app is just gorgeous and a pleasure to use. Home run.

- the iPhone Google+ app handles Hangouts splendidly in 3G (not just wifi).

Now I have a simple substitute for FaceTime when not on wifi.

" We have no plans to create a long term firm - when we are done, we are done."

This last point really stands out.    "We are all mere mortals".     I wonder what the thought process is behind this strategy.

Thanks Brad! I love that attitude. If startups are run that way, I wonder what the implications will be.

We have no idea what Jobs was seeing when he uttered his last words "Oh wow. Oh wow. Oh wow". In the end, we will all find out what Steve Jobs was talking about. Meanwhile it's somehow comforting to know that he was impressed.

Here is the eulogy on NY Times.
