Bill Gates = street cred +1, 3 Geekerisms, 2007s 3 big web trends chartered

Most of the time we all think Bill Gates is the ultimate evolution form of the geek:

– The kid you payed out can now buy your family and make them dig for lemmings

– Likes computers and has oversized frames that make Steve Urkle look less retarded

– At one stage (for a long ass time) had social skills that equate to that of a home schooled man girl (WTF?).

ANYWAY this clip made my respect for him that is already upmost, skyrocket. Not only  has he created an empire, he knows how to have a good laugh. The man is a role model for all, unless you think otherwise but meh.

 Great post by Steve Rubel from Micropersuasion –  And the 3 web trends are:

1. Social Networks

2.  Microblogging

3. Web Applications

Check the link for a detailed synopsis.

Here’s a great article.

A Mexican boy by the name of Diego, glued his hand to his bed because he didn’t want to go to school hahaha

‘Palacios said Diego sneaked into the kitchen in the early morning to get the industrial glue, which he then slathered on his right hand. She didn’t hear him get up, but later awoke and found him watching TV with his hand stuck to the bed, she told Mexican newspaper El Universal.’

Best quote today.  LINK to the article

On a green note for 2008 –

A list of 21 things we supposedly didn’t we could recycle!

Not only do i dislike gym buffs I dislike the actual gyms. From being tried to be sold to sign a contract that was 2 years+ to being hounded there after to join. If you’re looking to join a gym put some serious thought into it before you sign a contract – go for a short term or a per session basis.

Here’s a super list to keep you in check before you make a ‘dumb and dumber’ moment as you sign the contract.

Finally for all those that are looking into buying a next- gen gaming console. Here’s a chart to help you make your decision that much more easier. I have a wii….and a PC.

Now if you hate ads within your social network that is Facebook,  here’s a way to block Beacon in FB.

Too many it seems internets is a way to fill in for our bf/gf…check these stats. Makes one ponder upon where does the fine line between online social interactions actually start to hinder the offline? But then again, if you’re having fun who’s to judge? But you know, we all love the Star Wars kid (clip that will make u guffaw) .

Has your gf beat your ass at the game you claim to be awesome at? Get ready to get royally owned by the lady gamers…Chicks dig games is a new site designed for the refined female gamer that likes to frag, shank and pwn your lazy ass at games.

Feeling a little down? emo? LOL Etavitom is the place to bring motivation and inspiration to your life!

While I may not be on the list (boo!) this is a list we should all check out for a read – NXe’s Fifty most influential bloggers – A highlight blog I would like to single out for review THIS WEEK to see some great web2.0 sites is TechCrunch’s posts after page 3, because they just had the TechCrunch40 event and announced all the stand out sites, the pages before page 3 are sweet too.

Mint.com won by the way – check it out:

“Mint is a personal finance application that lets users track and monitor their financials in one place without the need of routine maintenance or accounting knowledge. Their application tracks bank, credit union and credit card transactions and alerts users to upcoming bills, low balances or unusual spending. Mint’s patent-pending technology automatically categorizes transactions, so users know with precision where they are spending money, what their bank and credit balances are, and how much interest they have earned.”
