Ideas Galore.

I am writing this post to have my thoughts “notoraized,” if you will.  The only purpose of this post is to have a public, dated record of the fact that I have an idea for the future.  In this day and age, I feel that this is necessary, especially after seeing the social network.

I have been calling around MSU to find out whether I can take pictures of MSU’s campus and buildings, and then take pictures inside of MSU buildings and put them on a website, of my creation, that does not directly have an academic purpose.  It may, however indirectly affect academics, as well as have a very positive affect on MSU.

I first came up with the idea on Tuesday, November 24th, 2010 at 12:50 PM local time.

The Social Network

What a movie.  What a movie indeed.  The Social Network gets a 9/10 from me.  Since I can’t think of one movie that I would give a 10/10 to, the Social Network has done damn good by me.

The opening scene is one of intellectual conversation led with masterful flourish by the lead actor, Jessie Eisenberg.  After seeing the entire movie, I don’t think that anyone could have put on a  better performance than Jessie.  Oscar anyone?  And funny fact, he’s 27.  I never would have guessed.  Anyway, I don’t want to spoil the movie, but it takes place in the present and past simultaneously as the story of the founding and subsequent explosive expansion of Facebook (previously named thefacebook).  Overall, quite a legendary movie, in my humble opinion.

Here’s what IMDB and Rotten Tomatoes had to say.

IMDB has it rated at 8.4/10, which is pretty respectable rating from the internet movie database, and Rotten Tomatoes gave it a 97%, which is excellent no matter who you are.

My advice?  See the Social Network, and then buy it when it comes out on DVD.  I know I plan to see it once more in theaters and then buying it the first day it comes out.

Whoa.

I had no idea how comprehensive and well put together Word Press was.  How did I not know about this sooner?  If you don’t have a Word Press, I have two words for you:

GET ONE!!

If I didn’t feel like a zombie due to three and a half hours of sleep, a day at the office, and a need to get to cold calling, I’d fill you in a little more on the features of this little diamond in the rough.  More to come…

Behold, the power of Google

Quote from Jim Sterne, renowned internet marketer and writer:

“Jim Sterne: God knows what’s going to happen. In my wildest imagination there will be something I’d like to call Google Personal. It will be a lock-down personal, private Google that knows everything about me. So when I say I need a flight to New York it knows all my preferences, all my frequent- flier numbers, which car rental company I prefer. It can act as my personal digital assistant. It knows I communicate more with John and Susan and knows that I trust their opinion. So it goes out and finds out how they reviewed a hotel, and it tells me, “Here’s the best hotel for you based on everyone you know who has reviewed it.” It’s the power of watching what I do and how I’m social in order to get me more-powerful information based on reviews and input from the cloud.”

To be honest, it wouldn’t surprise me.
