So in the spirit of regifting, I am giving away the following gadget/device to YOU my dear readers. A Dexim DCA132 P-Flip Foldable Power Dock for iphone/iPod Touch. If you recall, I won this the other day in Austin from the AT&T booth. I really have no use for it, so I’m giving it to you. I’m generous like that.
So what does one need to do in order to win? Easy retweet one of the following messages:
“I want to win @brianbreslin’s iphone accessory contest! http://j.mp/bbpackage #bbwin”
“I’m tweeting to win @brianbreslin’s package! http://j.mp/bbpackage #bbwin”
using the magic that is disqus, it should automatically grab all your entries below in the “Responses” section. Then once the contest is over (on April 7), I’ll use a random # generator and pick a winner. If you live inside the US, I’ll pay for shipping. If you live outside the US, you have to pay for shipping. If you live in Miami/Ft.Lauderdale, you can pick it up from me at either Refresh Ft. Lauderdale on the 8th, or RefreshMiami on the 28th. Disclaimer, I am not warrantying this thing at all.
Today you have the chance to help me win $5,000! Yes its true, you can help me win the CommunityNext Iron Coder contest by adding my new facebook application Vocabulario and inviting your friends!
If we win I will be giving out a prize to one of the users.
Hey folks, sorry for the relative quiet around here lately. I haven’t had much time the last 3 months to post to this blog, or any other blog for that matter. In the next few days you’ll see the revised layout implemented, the feeds fixed (that was a royal pain), and several new articles about facebook.
We’ll be selling ads on the site soon, so if you are interested, shoot me an email breslin[at]infinimedia.com thanks!
Just a quick update. New posts will resume this weekend. I’ve been on a mini vacation for the last week, and still a bit overwhelmed by what a kick ass of a conference my buddy Noah threw last weekend. My only wish is that it was 2 days, and not just one. But overall truly kick-ass event.
I am currently in Las Vegas having had my flights cancelled 2 days in a row by US Airways (not to mention being stuck in phoenix for 5 hours on the way over!). anyway, a number of posts, and new ideas shall be forthcoming, and not to mention Barcamp is next week!
There won’t be any updates today as we’re busy working on some new exciting changes to the site. We’ve got a neat little project for you that should be ready tonight or tomorrow. I’ll give you a hint, its muy “sabroso.”
We are also trying to improve the workflow of this site, so some things you might keep your eye out for over the next few days:
- Better comment formatting and tools
- More content
- Improved event info
- More community oriented stuff as well
So stay tuned, and please leave us some suggestions and ideas.
For those of you paying attention to my other blog. I just posted a new look to the web+ site (http://webpl.us). Check it out and let me know your thoughts.
So unless you’re one of the RSS subscribers to the site, you’ve probably noticed the interface revamp and identity change of web+. Gone is the pseudo web2.0 design we had going there for a few weeks that wasn’t exactly polished in many areas. In its place we’ve put this much more serious and elegant design (at least I think its elegant). Unfortunately I can’t take credit for the design, that goes to my friend Antonio who did this as a favor to me.
So what does this new design and concept mean? Well hopefully it means we’ll be able to build a brand and identity for the site, and help it grow. We’re planning a few of our own social networking events (in firstlife, not second life folks, well maybe in second life too, who knows, we’ll see.).
So what do we have planned for the upcoming season? Well Barcamp is going to be a great event hosted by UM and organized by our very own Alex de Carvalho. We are also planning a web+drinks event in late February which will be more of a cocktail party/bar meetup than anything. We’re hoping some interesting conversations can emerge from events like this.
Further down the line, Josip Vilicic and myself will be presenting/organizing a web+marketing workshop. So keep your eyes peeled for that. If you’re interested in attending/presenting, email me brian[at]webpl.us. So I hope you enjoy the new site! Feedback is ALWAYS welcome.
Please excuse some of the dust, I am still working on the details/minor issues. They should be resolved today.
