Miscellaneous Ramblings – The Weekend Edition

This weekend rambling edition is brought you by Twitter. All articles linked here were sent to me via Twitter from users who read my tweet asking for submissions. One more reason to follow me on Twitter. πŸ™‚

Follow Shoemoney and Win a Flip HD or Macbook Air

It looks like Shoe is making the move to 10,000 Twitter followers. He’s holding a contest to give away a couple of Flip Mino HD and an Apple MacBook Air. All you have to do is follow Shoe and tweet about his contest.

That’s a pretty cool way to increase Twitter followers. I think I’ll hold a Twitter contest as well. I’ll go dig up some nice prizes to one-up the Shoe.

Tyler Cruz Goes To The Dogs

My friend Tyler Cruz is trying to raise some money for his local SPCA. It seems Tyler is a dog lover and the SPCA is dear to his heart.

Tyler is hoping to raise $1,000 by January 15. He’s already half way there since he chipped in the first $500. He’s asking readers to match the $500 to bring total donation to a grand. I’m not as big a dog lover as Tyler but I’m willing to toss in $100 to his cause. Now he only needs $400 more.

Buzz Bishop Becomes a Virgin

Yes it true. Non virgins can become virgins again. That’s what happened to local radio jock, Buzz Bishop recently. Instead of working for Crave 953, Buzz now works for Virgin 953. I still remember the days when the station was call Z 953. Anyway, Virgin had a launch party for the new station and some naked guy showed up. Unfortunately, there were no naked girls.

2009 International CES

The 2009 CES is coming to a close and The TechZone has some cool articles from the floor for you to check out. You can see some of the cool gadgets the TTZ editors founds while walking the floor or check out their day 1 coverage. I’m surprised those guys can work after all that partying.

Thanks to @TheAdamBox for sending this one in. Smoking Everywhere Electronic Cigarette Looks like a cigarette, feels like a cigarette, taste like a cigarette, but it isn’t a cigarette. Also available in an electronic pipe version.

    I would love to know what I have to do to tweet about stuff, do I just type about it in my little update box with a link to it? I am new to twitter and am a bit of a div. I hope someone can help me lol. I am trying my best to get my head around every thing and would love to enter some contests. Happy blogging, thanks Chow Shi Fu.

  5. I should follow shoemoney!!!

  6. qiwoman says:

    I am wondering also I uploaded an avatar but is it showing at all?

  7. qiwoman says:

    Ah yes it has uploaded but my previous comment didn’t upload. Can anyone here tell me how to tweet on twitter? Does it mean just posting an update in that little box? I would love to enter some contests but I am new to tweetology lol. Oh and the Avatr is a pick of Avalokitewwara Boddhisattva, one cool and trendy Kwan Shi Yin Pusa. I couldn’t fit the thousand arms in lo but I would love to meet this Holy person who is compassionate and has vowed to save all Humanity before entering Heaven. I mean fancy that. He got upgraded when he was nearly about to give up. I need an upgrade to.

    Thanks a lot for the donation and mention John!

  10. I’ve seen those cigarettes in one of our mall kiosks. People come up with the craziest things. I wish my dad would smoke those though instead of his stinky Marlboros.

  11. Reyn Aria says:

    MacBook Air for retweeting? I’m in! =)

    1. Ben Pei says:

      We would probably have like 1/100000 chance..

  12. I am already in hope I will win

  13. Tyrone Shum says:

    Tyer, I think you’re doing a great job to raise some money for your local SPCA! All Dogs need support.

  14. I listen to Crave 95.3’s online stream all the time, just to listen to Buzz Bishop

  15. game-girl says:

    Good idea as usually,hope you’llbe a success.

  16. J.D. Meier says:

    Contests seem like a proven practice.

    Any guidance on the business case of how much to spend on a contest in terms of ROI? For example, let’s say you offered $1,000 …. how many followers would you need to justify the cost?

    Just ballpark ideas on how to figure out the possible ROI would help. Thanks

  17. That cigarette is so cool, what say?

  18. This is such a great post that it would feel wrong if I didn’t leave a comment to say so.

  19. game-girl says:

    You always have the idea of helping the other people,these ideas make the world more beautiful,John!

  20. Wink says:
