Ad Dollars Vs. Startups

Thinking about sustaining your startup on ad dollars?

Think again, says my buddy Darren Herman (and he knows about the advertising market!).

In response to to a rant by Howard Lindzon, Darren throws some numbers at startup entrepreneurs which should have them retooling their business plans (if they have them).

Anyway, you should go check out his post here, and to whet your appetite, check out this graph he made below. Very interesting! via

Creative Steampunk

Steampunk is a kind of speculative fiction that usually takes place in urban settings where the future meets the past: Victorian era inventions clash with often dark alternate realities. However, what started as a literary genre has since evolved into an art form with incredible real-life inventions, modifications and redesigns. The following is an introduction to the art of Steampunk, with everything from altered guitars to a Steampunked iPod.

Officer Claims Wife’s Meatballs Were Spiked

A US counter-terrorism police officer who says he failed a drugs test because his wife spiked his meatballs with marijuana is suing to get his job back.

Anthony Chiofalo, of New York Police Department (NYPD), has asked Manhattan Supreme Court to challenge his firing.

He was suspended in 2005 after 22 years of service, for failing a random test.

His wife told investigators she had secretly drugged his meatballs hoping a failed test would force him to retire. NYPD said the story was "not credible".

Both Mr Chiofalo and his wife Catherine have passed lie detector tests about how the marijuana entered the police officer’s system. [link]

There may or may not be a hidden recipe.AA Once again, thanks to orange menace for being the ninja that actually reads.

Rich-Ass Dog

A dog that inherited $12m (A£5.8m) from late New York hotelier Leona Helmsley is in hiding after it was targeted by death threats, US media say.

Trouble, a white Maltese that belonged to the billionaire until her death in August, was flown by private jet to Florida, the New York Post reported.

It says the tiny bitch was whisked away under an assumed name after receiving about 20 threats.

Trouble is said to have earned a number of enemies due to its habit of biting. [LINK]

It would seem unrealistic if it wasn’t lifted directly off the BBC website.

ghostface leaves behind some precious gems in an excerpt from his new audiobook. Warning. This is out of control and not for the faint of heart.

Special thanks to Josh aka Hidefninja for this one.

Universal Design for Horizontal Communities

"And ita€™s a wonderful question, why dona€™t we have more universal design that people can afford?" says Sue Siegel, president of the board for nonprofit Hearth Homes Community Building, which worked with another nonprofit, developer Affordable Housing Associates, to complete the 27-unit project designed by Kava Massih. "Wea€™re working on that, especially in light of the Baby Boomers aging. Wea€™re all going to need universal design at some point, and retrofitting is much more expensive than building." via
