Win Tickets to Europe

December 2nd, 2008 No comments

Viator is co-sponsoring a contest to win free tickets to Paris or Amsterdam from NYC courtesy of OpenSkies. Enter today! Honestly your odds are not shabby we have lots of tickets to give away, and really, you know you need a vacation.

Free the Airwaves

October 24th, 2008 No comments

Am I getting political for a moment? Maybe. Bear with me.

The FCC will soon vote on freeing up white space spectrum, essentially bandwidth that we could all use for better broadband access, but the broadcasting lobby would prefer not to see that happen. This reminds me a lot of cable tv back in the day – we could be living in a world where we pay just for channels we want on an ala carte basis, or from several providers, but we don’t have that choice because of laws made hastily and foolishly in the past. Don’t let that happen with internet access.

Bring wireless Internet to everyone, everywhere.

Sign the petition.

Zagat for Sale

January 14th, 2008 No comments

Rumor has it Zagat is for sale and that IAC might buy it. I’m intrigued, as it could mesh with CitySearch, another IAC property, in some really interesting ways. They could become the super site for restaurants. Also, I hate Yelp, so I’d like to see it go down to the old school sites, if they can get it together to provide some serious competition. I like that Zagat’s online site is cleaner looking than CitySearch, but the whole being a member subscription model is convoluted. Are they even making any money off that? Given that other sites are free I doubt it. Take Zagat content online and monetize it with local ads and reservations partnerships, stuff like that, and then you’re cooking. I am sure there’s plenty of synergy between them and CitySearch at any rate.

On vacation: Japan

Arigato, you have reached Kelly’s inhousesem blog. I’m currently away from my desk in Japan until January 6th, but if you read some past posts below, and maybe waste some time reading celebrity gossip online, I’ll be back and posting before you know it.

Happy Holidays to All!

My Lunches Could Clearly Be Better

October 10th, 2007 No comments

Check out these lunches a local San Francisco mom makes for her preschooler! Clearly I am not eating the lunches I ought to be. She also has a blog, is it wrong that I am now contemplating getting a rice cooker and some bento gear? I’m really not eating enough cat shaped items to meet my minimum daily requirement. Also Scott at Viator recommended taking these on a plane, genius.

A Viral Classic in the Making

August 29th, 2007 No comments

I don’t forward around time wasting, though funny, internet phenomena often. Maybe once a year. Mainly I don’t have time for time wasting internet jokes, I am not living in 1999, and I have work to do. Clearly I am in a minority as many other people do in fact have time for this. While waiting for a to go order of delicious Burmese food, my brother (a person with plenty of time to waste on the internet) introduced me to icanhascheezburger.com (basically a funnier lolcats). And I saw the picture below, which I immediately forwarded to a few select recipients.

BRING ME SOLO AND THE WOOKIEE. THEY WILL ALL SUFFR 4 DIS OUTRAGE.

I know now that this one is destined to be a classic because it got forwarded to me from a totally separate friend I did not email, who also does not normally send forwards. Stupid viral funny thing, you got us! You got us good.

ps – This also means that two years from now my aunt and mom will forward this to me.
