March Madness indeed

I typically don't use my website to profess my obsession with University of Louisville sports. But the end of the 2012 season is worth documenting, not only for me, but for the ridiculousness (Russdiculous?) involved.

In January, there was some discussion about attending the Big East Tournament. My stepdad, who splits time between Texas and Louisville, would already be there; my mom, who lives in Louisville, was assuredly going; my brother, who lives in Los Angeles, wanted to check it out; and my uncle, who was overseas until March, was considering as well.

Book now available at Carmichael's in Louisville

Corporate Ties has been available at any Barnes and Noble location for a while (although not necessarily stocked in the store). The good news is that Carmichael's, Louisville's oldest independent bookstore, now has copies at both of its locations.

Carmichael's is a great locally owned bookstore. I've made purchases there; I've been to events there; and I've had a book talk there as well. When you stop by, tell them I sent you!

Free autographed copy at Brazos on Sunday!

If you found this page via Facebook, then congratulations! Stop by Brazos Bookstore between 3-4 pm Sunday, April 1, make a qualifying purchase (like, buy a book, not just a bookmark) and receive a free autographed copy of Corporate Ties! Pretty simple, right?

Houston, we have a book signing

My first Corporate Ties book signing is in a somewhat strange place - Houston, Texas. I'll be at Brazos Bookstore at 3 pm on Sunday, April 1 - April Fools' Day!

Internet ties Nelly, becomes No. 1

If you're a little behind and missed it (like me), CNN recently released its list of the top 25 innovations of the past 25 years. The Internet finished first, barely beating out other top innovations like Velcro and the automatic lollipop turner.

Mapping the reviews

I meant to do this a long time ago, but I wanted to determine how many states I've covered with "The Developers" reviews. By this count, it looks like 18 plus Washington D.C. It would be pretty cool to hear from someone in every state, but let's face it, how many copies of my book are lying around in South Dakota?

More domain names coming your way

The Internet Corporation for Assigned Names and Numbers has added .post and .travel to its list of allowable domain names. Businesses and groups apparently will have the right to apply for these domain names soon, it's not quite clear just when someone would expect to actually see them live on the web. For more information about the additions, read a recent USA Today story about it.

Keep breathing, even if you can't get to the Internet

For someone who depends on the Internet for many things (assuming my mom will stop calling and just instant message me), it is definitely easy to get freaked out when my connection goes down. I usually run a few tests and check a couple of different websites, just in case it's only one server out there (perhaps my email) instead of a complete outage.
