For those who don’t know what Twitter is:
“Twitter is a free social networking and micro-blogging service that allows users to send “updates” (or “tweets”; text-based posts, up to 140 characters long) to the Twitter website…”
Anyway. A guy from yahoo! was canned yesterday, and he decided to Twitter the entire thing. It’s quite entertaining. Here’s a snippet…
Y! layoffs today, I’m “impacted”. I’m heading into work to pack my desk, get my severance paperwork and hand in my badge…more to come. about 10 hours ago

What was your favorite and/or least favorite summer job, ever?
Finish this sentence: “I couldn’t make it through my workday without ___________.”
What’s the most embarrassing thing that’s ever happened to you at work.
When people ask me what I do all day I simply reply: “The same thing you do… surf the Internet all day long.”
I’m only kidding – but I’m serious.
According to a recent survey by Salary.com, turns out you guys and gals can’t get enough on the clicky-clicky when you should be dong important things like… umm… well let me flip the question on you: what exactly do you do all day long?
Silly kids. Let’s hug.

As many (ok, maybe not “many”) of you know, I’ve run a little business by the name of Bamassippi Media Group for the last 7 years. For years we’ve built websites and provided e-commerce consultation. However, I’ve decided to refocus efforts into a field that even some ad agencies do not know enough about.
We will still provide consultation for small business e-commerce and start-ups… it just won’t be the main focus.
Today I announce the changes in our business:
- Businesses want to advertise on the net… but they don’t know where or how to do it.
- More than $3.9 billion will be spent on Internet advertising this year… most of it on the wrong websites and blogs.
- Bamassippi works with more than 10,000 websites and blogs to provide your company the most bang for their buck.
It’s very simple… we help you maximize your online advertising budget. If you or your business needs consultation on the issue, feel free to contact me.
If you’re like me, your work requires that you spend the overwhelming majority of your day on the computer.
Reading emails, checking site statistics, reading headlines… the list goes on and on.
One of the biggest concerns I have when I travel is when and where can I log onto the Internet.
The New York Times gives us a list of airlines with internet access so that you can work (or waste time) at 35,000 feet.
