Flattery by Improvement

Charles Caleb Colton famously said that "Imitation is the sincerest form of flattery". I could not have been more flattered than when the Cornell Hotel School chose not to imitate, but to improve on the Entrepreneur In Residence role by selecting Jim Quest to serve in that position for their college.

The Man with the Perfect Entrepreneur Name!

Jim Quest was recently announced as the Cornell Hotel School Entrepreneur In Residence. Congratulations Jim!

I have seen Jim in action and he knows how to stoke the entrepreneurial flame burning within his students. They could not have picked a better guy. His addition to the educational ranks sets a new high mark for excellence by bringing more real-world experience to the top hospitality school in the world.

Dean Johnson, well done!

No Shoes, No Problem

Adam and I are in Florida. We played golf at the Chi Chi Rodriguez Golf Club today. Beautiful grounds; tough course. We played our modified version of a Skins game. He won. Barely.

After golf, we hung out by the pool at our hotel. Free beer, wine, and nachos at the pool. I decided to capture the moment on video.

No wine? Problem!

We are going to watch some Toronto Blue Jays spring training baseball tonight. It's 36 degrees in Ithaca. It's 81 in Tampa. I'm barefoot. It's awesome. Aaaahhhh...

Recording Me Recording You

The recently released SightSpeed 6.0 allows you to record live calls. I recorded this video conversation of SightSpeed CTO Aron Rosenberg talking about it.

I record you

I posted this up to YouTube, and they do their image quality down-sampling. The original if this is really sharp, but you get the idea. It's a cool new feature added to a bunch of existing cool features.

Zero 7 on Eighty 3

I travel a lot. I prefer to travel by car. On Monday I was driving on I-83. It's late in the winter and it looks like even the roads are tired. It's a somber feeling and I was in a somber mood so I put on Zero 7. In order to break my emo mood, I decided to nerd it up and take a SightSpeed video blog.

Different places to me

The audio sounds so-so, and you can hear me eating carrots. But it's a nice snap of a mid-Atlantic road in winter.

Addendum: I have had reports of my highway video not working. If so, here is the original Zero 7 video :
