Just shared a post from a Blogger blog. In the process, I realized there is no way to +1 or Share an article from there. Get it together Google!

I've never experienced a whiteboard interview, but I'm pretty sure I'd walk out if I did. At Squidoo, every single person we hire works for us first as a contractor. This way we're actually able to make our time together productive.

That's a much more natural way to initiate a relationship.

I've had my share of corporate interviews in the past and I have to say that I feel the same. If someone asked me to 'sell them a pen' or something equally patronising like a whiteboard interview then I pull out of the process for sure.

As a huge Seth Godin fan, I have to say it must be a real privilege for you to work with a man of his intellect.

HTML document and meta tag? What a lame way to do redirects.

So the big news is that Michael Arrington wants to buy TechCrunch back from Aol. He blames the current problems on integration with Huffington Post. But last week, the problem was that he was launching a venture fund with Aol which resulted in a journalistic conflict of interest at TechCrunch.

I don't get it. What does that have to do with HuffPo?

It toop me 45 minutes to completely integrate Stripe into a new app I'm building. So, so easy. If I could buy stock in them now, I would.

Believe in the power of statistics? This article just might shake your confidence. We really have no clue what we're doing with all those numbers.

Wondering why TechCrunch was completely silent on the unfavorable mergers of Lijit and Ning. Both seem like big news to me, considering how much money was poured into them. You would never know about it through TechCrunch.

Everyone worries about Arrington's conflicts of interest. Should we be more concerned about high profile investors' abilities to control the TC news cycle?

Last spring in the gym I pulled a muscle in my back. I couldn't do any kind of exercise for over a month, and the problem never went away completely. It would flare up anytime I did certain movements. I visited a couple different chiropractors and massage therapists but nothing helped. Recently I decided to give chiropractic care another shot, and I chose All American because they offer a number of different treatment options that I hadn't tried before. It's been only a few weeks since treatment started, and the difference is night and day. I'm mobile, functional, and the problem no longer flares up. If you've tried other chiropractors before but not been wowed. I'd recommend giving All American a chance. What I like the most is that the staff take the time to learn and most importantly remember the details of your injury. Every time I come in, they laser in on the problem and bring it one step closer to recovery. They walk me through various mobility exercises and educate me on how to avoid injury in the future. They accepted my insurance and I've never had to wait more than a couple minutes. Office hours are reasonable. All in all, a great experience.
