Nice race. What happened in qualifying? We did 2:19 in quali and then 2:19 in the race, but you dropped 6 seconds!

BTW, the car looks really nice too.

Nice job in traffic! Obviously your coaches were pretty good and you're an excellent student. But I'd switch from Vegas Pro 12, finalist in the annoying pop-up competition.

Good stuff on staying ahead, using Netflix's perplexing recent behavior as an example.

Is it New Coke? Or the iPod?Video-rental service Netflix has provoked a consumer firestorm--and probably a few business-school case studies--with its recent plan to split

What's the thinking on Identified? I tried it and the gaming aspect was okay (initially there are clear steps, then all hell breaks loose). But the point beyond that is a bit opaque. Is opaqueness part of virality for some obscure (to me) reason?

Roger Scoble wrote today that "More and more of my life will be possible to complete just from a browser." When I was listening to Al Gore he mentioned Ray Kurzweil's idea of virtualized humans being the solution to energy shortages. That used to seem like an interesting future. Now it also seems like a description of a seduction or even an addiction. When I look back at the last year, I don't think that often of the memorable experiences I've had using my browser. Which reminds me: time to practice guitar.

Leh: thanks for posting this. We wondered what happened on the last lap (we were running the white Cup car behind you). This also explains how the 0 car suddenly got so fast! Nice work.

Moneyball is an important book. Mostly not for baseball people, but for business and public-policy people.

And watch the movie at a theater near you. A really engaging adaptation of the book.!

Is this the future of social? "I try not to over complicate things and pretty much everything I post on Google+ is public. Everything on Twitter is public. On Facebook only friends can see what I post."

This is the BMW dealership I would choose, having tried several others. Judy Powell was super responsive, her BMW Genius knew the car and the options in detail, they spent as much time as I needed to get all my questions answered, and the dealer was proactive with fair pricing. The selection of cars was also impressive.

Excellent selection of vehicles, which really helps when there are so many models and trim combinations. Staff was efficient and focused on answering all my questions, and multiple test drives were not a problem. Negotiation was simple and pain free. Help with learning the vehicle was also well above average (Brandon really knows the car).
