Anatomy Of A Failure: Lessons Learned – An interesting post from the founder of Meetro, which was a location based IM client. I tried it out when it was first released. There were not many people in my area. I also thought it was a little strange talking to strangers nearby. I’d rather my strangers be far away. It was an interesting idea and worth a shot. Very interesting read about why it failed and the thoughts of someone behind the scenes.
The Simpsons Ride – Was there not a Simpsons ride before? Its the perfect recipe for a ride.
Mario Kart Wii Training Wheel – Having issues with the Wii Wheel for Mario Kart Wii? I’m not but some of my family had trouble with it as first. You can create your own training wheel and look ridiculous at the same time.
Super Mario World levels set to music – Someone spent a lot of time to create these levels to match up to music. I only got three minutes into it. Those three minutes were cool but I think I got the point.
Turn your soda can into a bottle. There must be some sort of resealable can that could be designed instead of this.
50 Ways to Help the Planet – Easy ways to do your part.
Lovers, Not Fighters by Doug Glanville – As far as I know Glanville is the best writer in baseball. Here he discusses brawls he’s been involved in.
Beckham’s 60-yard Goal – I happened to catch this live. I don’t watch soccer all that much but I was flipping through and saw the game on HDNet. Nothing else was on so I watched a few minutes. I like soccer but there aren’t enough hours in the day to be a fan.
The bracket for the NCAA Baseball Tournament. Possibly the most complicated playoff format outside of Baseketball. The 8 teams that emerge from this 64-team field head to Omaha for the College World Series.
