Yes that’s right I now have the coolest signature EVER, thanks to wisestamp.com (FireFox plugin). As you can see it links to all the cool social media sites out there. My good friend Vince hooked me up with this, as he usually does with the coolest and latest things… Go get you some now.

Pretty cool huh?

QuietTime.tv looks like a cool new use for web 2.0 & video. I know that I don’t get enough “quiet time” and when I’m in community with others, there’s cool things that come up that I would have never thought of. So I am excited about this. Go check it out today and here’s a little video explaining a little more in depth.

I’ve been using Pandora a lot lately (it’s an online music engine that uses your first choice to stream music of that genre to your computer). In the home, in the office, in our church reception area. I highly recommend it. This morning Jen and I were eating breakfast and I punched in “Bryan Adams” and for the next hour we were blessed with more 80’s rock sweetness! Here the songs in order that came up:

  1. Run to You – Bryan Adams
  2. Livin’ on a Prayer – Bon Jovi
  3. Keep on Lovin’ You – REO Speedwagon
  4. Listen to Your Heart – Roxette
  5. Jessie’s Girl – Rick Springfiend
  6. Danger Zone – Kenny Loggins
  7. End of the Innocence – Don Henly
  8. Have You Ever Needed Someone – Def Leppard
  9. Dancing in the Dark – Bruce Springsteen
  10. Your Love – The Outfield
  11. In too Deep – Genesis

Thanks for the reminders Pandora!

I’ve been using iGoogle as my home page for at least a year, probably longer. I love it, even though it’s a little cluttery, it helps me stay on top of things. Google is pretty much the next best thing next to Jesus. My Google home page has these plugins:

  1. Gmail – the best email application ever invented
  2. CNN.com – up to date news
  3. Vitalist Gadget – my to do lists
  4. Google Reader – gotta get my blogs on
  5. Picasa Web Photos – shows my online collection of photos
  6. Google Calendar – I don’t use this enough, but I am learning
  7. Nasa Image of the Day – awesome space photos
  8. Better Bookmarks – this is for when I open my Google homepage on someone else’s computer
  9. Digg – I check it every once in a while
  10. Weather – or I could just go outside
  11. Clicky Quicky – keep tabs on my blog stats
  12. Countdown – right now it’s counting down to Jen’s birthday
  13. Date & Time – just in case I don’t want to look at the tool bar on my Macbook Pro
  14. Christian Today – this has interesting links every so often

What does your homepage look like?
