Calling for Creativity

I bought this domain name a while back, and I think it has potential, but I don’t know what to do with it. So I am turning to you dear readers to give me ideas (preferrably lucrative in nature) for a web site to put there.

The domain? GoogleMeThis.com.

So far, all I have thought up is some kind of Google treasure hunt game, but I’m not sure how it would work.

Ideas?

Been enjoying the fact that I have a job for at least the next 5 months, which was the nature of my last post.

Been working on Paul Pieper’s site; still in progress.

Also been working on a New version of Compassion Books. Just started, really.

Played drums for the first time in about 2.5 years last night with some guys. It’s fun when you can all just fall into a groove, and there aren’t any rules or genres or expectations to have to play by. Hoping to do this again, not with the intention of playing gigs or ‘making it’, but just to play.

Other than that, boy #2 is expected to emerge within about 8 weeks. Alicia is not feeling that great, but we are hanging in there. Still no name chosen for this one, and we are beginning to wonder if we even need one.

Web Standards Presentation

I came up with this really lengthy presentation on XHTML, CSS, Accessibility and Web Standards at work. In the end, it was so-so, but I never felt like it had the cohesion I was after. It seemed so monotonous that I included a brief intermission clip of a squirrel on waterskiis just to lighten up the mood.

In walks the Web Standards Workshop, offered by the ever-cool Max Design. It is a comprehensive, well-planned, understandable presentation on how everyone should be doing web development.

Read it now for true enlightenment. What are you waiting for?
