About.Me Profile

About.Me ProfileI decided to launch a new personal profile page on About.Me after hearing about the site in an Engadget Expand conference video. I'm not entirely sure what I'll do with the page yet, but About.Me is an interesting idea, not unlike a public facebook page.I am curious to see if it will have any ranking potential within search engines. This could possibly allow it to be used for reputation management and owning the first page of results - even for businesses. Only time will tell if the page gets indexed and ranks. Hit me up if you have tried About.Me and have found the service beneficial.

Free, Premium, Little Known Hosted Software

A post came across my RSS feed reader, today that included a post from The Gypsy: 11 Premium But Free And Useful Web Apps For Designers. I was skeptical at finding anything of use from yet another list of Internet site programs, but to be honest, this article highlights many useful programs (I haven’t had a chance to try them all yet), many of which I haven’t heard about. It’s a worth while post to check out.

Frustrated With Macs

A co-worker of mine (and Mac lover) decided to share this wonderful YouTube video with me today and I couldn’t help but share. I’m not a Mac lover by any means, though I own an iPhone, and I am forever given a hard time due to my nuetral feelings toward Macs given my last name…. Oh well, I guess it comes with the territory. Enjoy!
