Tuesday, October 25th, 2011

See? And this isn’t even the book section, which has another big pile of these tomes.

The Winklevii Surrender: But the Way Things are Going with Facebook, the Winklevoss Twins Might Be Better Off

Thursday, June 23rd, 2011

‘Cause you know, Cameron and Tyler Winklevoss got an early cash out, more or less, from the Facebook, right? So, now that they’ve just given up on their lawsuit against Mark Elliot Zuckerberg, they don’t need to worry about FB (our current Flavor of the Month) going the way of AOL (the Internet’s former Flavor of the Month).

Hurray!

Get all deets on Beast, the white Puli pup now owned by famous Mark Zuckerberg and Priscilla Chan.

Myself, I’ve only seen black ones. Have you ever seen anything like this? Outside of an album cover, that is.

It’s too small to be a Komondor, so that’s how you know it’s a Puli dog.

Him a natty dread dog.

“Home for Halloween 2010″ – Castro Party Still Cancelled – How Many $$ Spent on Lousy Website? – Gascon Speed-Reads Espanol

Monday, October 18th, 2010

[The Uptown Almanac draws attention to another Gascon video from the same outfit. Is there some volume mixer setting that would render that English-language YouTube video auditorialy legible? And could somebody point me to an event some time in history where David Perry & Associates took our government money and didn't do a half-assed job?]

First thing you do is check out Home for Halloween 2010 – it’s the biggest POS website that nobody looks at AND it’s one that we paid for.

Now, how much did we pay for it? I don’t know. It could be $10k, $20k, $30k, or $40k – the sky’s the limit. But it’s just like something your kid sister could whip up in an evening free of charge while she’s watching the Glee.

Now, how many people actually look at the Home for Halloween website? Well, You Make The Call – the latest numbers are something like a dismal eight visitors (including a fair share of GoogleBots) a day.

You’d think that it would be a lot cheaper to reach a lot more people if the City just placed a simple banner ad on one of the big local sites like SFist or Curbed SF, but you’d be wrong.

Now, here’s where your money goes, into videos with zero production values. Then they get posted on the YouTube, where they get roundly ignored. For example, here’s George Gascon speed reading Spanish muy rapido with his eyes darting back and forth like the methiest of meth heads. It’s mesmerizing in full-screen even if you don’t habla Espanol.

Check it. Aye, I lost me chief to meth:

Now, I saw him at the Costco once and he’s not like this at all in real life. Of course he’s a good sport, but how effective is this effort if NO SPANISH SPEAKERS WATCHED IT SINCE IT WAS UPLOADED TWO WEEKS AGO? It’s getting a grand total of one-third of a viewer per day.

Wasn’t this video just a big fat waste of time for the Chief?

Now, check out famous Akit’s famous website for all the deets.

Oh well.

And where will Fake and Real Frank Chu go this year?

And what about Facebook’s Mark Zuckerberg and Priscilla Chan? Where will they and their half-billion friends go?

Oh well.
