Terry Tate: Office Linebacker

I finally tracked down what is one of my favorite viral videos, Reebok's "Terry Tate: Office Linebacker" series. I couldn't stop laughing when I first came across these short ESPN-esque video clips. Watch the entire video via Google.

Edit: Steve Rubel of Micro Persuasion shares my enthusiasm for this video; he references and says "Still a classic, one of the greatest viral vids ever." Right on Steve!

Words to Live By

While driving on I40 last night, I noticed the back of a small commercial truck that had the following written underneath the logo:

Stay Awake - Stay Alive - Read

It's funny, because those are the three things I'm really trying to focus on right now! Well, staying alive is pretty much your common everyday goal, but I've really been trying to cut back on napping (so addictive) and increase my daily reading. I've made significant improvement since a few years ago, but there is always room for more.
That's all she wrote.

Kids, Don't Try This in Paris (or NY for that matter!)

Ferrari + city of Paris + one carefree Formula 1 driver = awesome video footage

So upon my feed reading last month, I came across a Digg article for a great French "racing" video by filmmaker Claude Lelouch. Imagine a pro Formula 1 driver racing a Ferrari through the streets of Paris at up to 140 MPH, without any of the streets being closed! Can't imagine? Then watch.

RSS Feeds via IM

I read a post by Steve Rubel of Micro Persuasion in mid-April regarding RSS feeds through Instant Messenger. This was new to me. The entry was about Sabifoo, which allows feed content to be created via IM. Sweet! Needless to say, I gave it a quick whirl (so did everyone else who heard about it, as noted by the numerous "this is a test message" entries that I originally saw in the universal Sabifoo feed, but keep in mind, that's when it was first being introduced; most of the entries are pretty legit now). Anyhow, if I decide to use it in the future, here is my Sabifoo RSS feed and my Sabifoo web feed.
