Dot Com Pho – Highly Leveraged Edition

Welcome to another edition of Dot Com Pho, the weekly meet up for Dot Com Moguls and want to be Dot Com Moguls. Every Saturday, the Dot Com crew meets up at Pho Lan restaurant at Number 3 Road in Richmond for a few hours of networking, food and good clean fun.

On today’s edition of Dot Com Pho, we find out how much it cost to have a nice day, Michael Kwan’s 50% off sale, the Fraser Valley WordPress camp, the gadget of the week, the winner of the Market Leverage bag of stuff and a whole lot more.

Below is my video from today’s Dot Com Pho. Below my video is Stephen’s video from today’s Dot Com Pho. Two for the price of one! :mrgreen:

    Quality before Quantity…like last week! The only way it could take you less time is if you used the “Magic Movie” button in iMovie.

    1. Enkay Blog says:

      Thats also true. Very well done Stephen!

      Dot Com Pho is on Saturday. It’s out of date if you post it on Sunday or Monday.

        You see, it’s like the Incredible Hulk Movie. You wanted to be first, and you get a crappy Hulk Movie. Then I have to come along and remake it.

        It’s best to take the time necessary to do a good job that you can be proud of, that shows that you actually care, and that demonstrates your creativity and attention to detail.

        Nuff said…

        1. John Chow says:

          There’s only one problem. Your remakes are not better. If I were to set up a poll, I have even money that I would beat you, both in time and in quality. 😈

          1. Stephen says:

            There’s another problem… Putting that poll on yours or my blog isn’t neutral. We’d have to get a more neutral third party like…. ProBlogger… to post it or something. Then there is also the problem of you trying to game the poll and do evil marketing with it which I always expect 😛

            The only reason my remakes aren’t better to you is because you made the “Ang Lee” version 😆

        2. What’s funny about the new “Hulk” film is that Edward Norton isn’t happy with the finished product.

          1. Stephen says:

            That’s right. I’m STILL not happy with it. However, “Ang (Chow)” doesn’t think he can do any better 😆

    “And it’s all wrapped in a condom” LMAO.
    Is it a flavored one? roflmao.

    1. at least, it’s safe to eat.

      1. Thiago Prado says:

    John is the Dot com pho by invitation only? How many people on the average attend these events and how much does it cost to feed everyone.I might be able to attend one in July,that is if i am welcomed.

    1. There was an open invite link on one of Friday’s posts, where you can contact John to save a seat for you. It was my 4th DCP and the number of folks have ranged from 8 to 25. And there’s no free lunch, it’s dutch.

      Unfortunately, I only saw Chinese people!

      1. John Chow says:

        Who cares what race the people are? I guess Greg Morgan is Chinese. 😐

        1. Geiger says:

          I thought he was Albino African American?

  10. Do they sell the Flip mino in Canada anywhere?

    1. John Chow says:
