Dot Com Pho – Shout for Donation Edition

Dot Com Pho returns to our main hangout at Pho Lan for our Shout for Donation edition. This edition got its name because instead of doing the normal Tweeter shout outs, we’re only shouting the name and URL of readers who helped out the Union Gospel Mission in their Christmas Dinner drive. If you’ve made a donation to the UGM this week, then you got a shout out. If not, then make a donation and get shout out next week.

For the shout for donation edition of Dot Com Pho, we have Pho menu #24, the gadget of the week, iPhone app of the week, Sally eating Pho, Twitter as the new IM and having fun with Northern Voice. Attending Dot Com Pho were myself, Sally, Sarah, Steven Fung, Ed Lau, Jason Landals and Jeffifer from Citrus Pie.

            If you suscribe to google reader and just leave it on while you use the net and press refresh periodically, it’s easy to get first on John Chow’s comment.

            it’s really not that big a deal, if you weigh “commenting on john chow’s blog” against your other traffic sources it barely impacts anything

            Oh.. I didn’t realise that.. Thanks!

          5. then must think now

    2. You should hold a contest for a couple Flip Mino HDs, John! 🙂

      1. John Chow says:

        You don’t want to win that. It’s really not that great.

        1. I almost bought one, but they dont ship to Australia – so I found a better camera 😀

          1. Yeah ive won 2 from promoting contests. One went to my business partner and the other i opted for cash instead

        2. Flip Mino HDs not cool? Why?

        3. Better to hold a contest for a Windows laptop, every contest is always MAC!

  2. What a great idea to make sure people donate 😀

    I hope you meet your $10,000 target.

    Thanks for the twitter invite for lunch to network. I happen to be in Richmond yesterday to watch the Bridgeport table tennis tournament and felt that the extra gas use would be fine. It is too bad that there is not a product to edited out wrinkles .. … . where you using the little stick to record or was it the other product… I believe it was a phone?
    If it was the little stick, what is that product?… it did a good job of taking out background noise!

    Keep helping John. You have made a difference in many ways.

  11. I really like your vidoes John. If I’m ever in the Toronto area I’d love to come hang out with your for a night. I’d be a really nice experience and I’d probably learn alot!
