Best Daddy Ever

It's weird to have a picture of your kids show up on the front page of Digg. It's weirder to have the resulting conversation on the web make it the actual top result (even if it was just for a day). I contend it's a hyper local search result - have your kids try it and I'll bet the most relevant result depends a lot on location.

magnificent bastard - ask the mb blazer with tshirt

It's over Johnny, over. No more t-shirts with blazers. Next.

Nexus of the universe Jerry, nexus of the universe

Damn these list posts! They are easy to do though. Ok, four things:
  1. I'm back baby. Let's do lunch, coffee, or whatever. Ask away. I'm in San Francisco a few times a week and can even be convinced to come down to Palo Alto/Mountain View if necessary. Bonus points if you want to come hang out in the East Bay.
  2. Are you awesome?I have stumbled into the nexus of the universe in terms of people offering (or asking if I know anyone good to fill) VP/Director and senior product management and business development jobs. The only thing is I'm not really interested in taking a job at the moment but if you are awesome and want one of the aforementioned positions let me know. I may have to implement some sort of job board if this gets out of control. I have a lot of people asking about good designers too. For those, why not use my comments below to post a link to your portfolio and I can point people there, ok?
  3. Inbox zero? Not quite yet, but I'm at 19 email in the inbox down from 2500+ this morning! If I haven't responded to you by now then I've lost it - resend.
  4. It's a secret... but if you want to know when it's no longer a secret, sign up for the mailing list.

The Secret Agency

Maybe you know the story of how Blogger was born out of a small company called Pyra Labs. It wasn't the first or only Pyra product. Google Reader was birthed out of Google's Labs program. Twitter out from under the wings of Obvious. I've always been a fan of this idea of incubating new ideas in some sort of formal space. I'm announcing the creation of The Secret Agency today as a similar sort of experiment in cooking up new ideas. There isn't much other than our logo on the site today but there will be more in time. For now our plans are on a need to know basis. ;)

ps: Congratulations to the Google Reader team on launching search in Reader today. It's not easy to implement search over one's individual items, just ask the Gmail team. Nice work!
