Google changes name to Topeka. Gmail gets smarter

So here I go again, back to loving on Google. You have to love it. On April Fool’s day they change their name to Topeka. How much fun is that? Ok, put aside the fact that they have the best search engine in the land. Put aside the fact that they have the best email ever. Put aside the fact that they own YouTube (and I love YouTube!) Google is a just plain cool company. They build great stuff and appear to be having fun. The Topeka...

Because it will be awesome that’s why. Because...

Green Thumb Hits the goal for 2009!

We hit our revenue goal for 2009!   Yes sir! The goal wasn’t a big one in my opinion.   Infact, I’ve ran a business where I personally made as much as our goal was as a team. But that was a different economy and a business I had been in for 2.5 years. Our man Les pointed out, "Look, you started a business in the worst economy since the great depression" Unlike my lead business, this company is here to stay...
