Janeen McCrae

Yes I Am Precious is a Livestrong campaign that bicyclist Janeen McCrae came up with to raise money to fight shitty cancer. The journey begins on the Atlantic side of this great country and three months later, she and her bike Precious, should arrive on the Pacific end. It is the 15th day of the ride as of this blog post, a rest day in Berea, Kentucky, the folk arts and crafts capital of Kentucky for those not in the know. :]

As the video below will show you, this isn’t just your regular ride, it makes raising money for a great cause a whole lot more cool and interesting. You can check out how many roadkills were seen along the way, how many time Janeen has been honked at, how many dogs have chased her on her long journey across America with Precious who is tweeting along the way what he is “feeling”.

Check out what they’ve done to Precious to gauge speed, incline, decline, temperature, etc, etc…

…and yes you can follow them on Twitter, Precious or Janeen, or go to Janeen’s blog about her ride, No Direction Known, and don’t forget Team Fatty, check out their About Page, good stuff.

Last but not least here is the donation page for this awesome ride.

I love biking and cool people.

I am the last person to judge, but… ;] I was just reading this article on the NPR site entitled, Web 2.0 Suicide Machine: Erase Your Virtual Life. It is all about deleting your web 2.0 life using this Web 2.0 Suicide Machine. Killing your Facebook, Twitter and the like. I mean they change your password, your profile picture and don’t give you said information, they un-friend and un-follow everyone…there is literally no turning back. Isn’t it exciting?

The site has become wildly famous, so much so that they were featured in the critically acclaimed series, South Park. :] Facebook has even sent them a cease and desist letter. It gives me a warm feeling.

It may be a time for me to think about this whole social network thing going on, reassess the situation as they say. I will test the Web 2.0 Suicide Machine using my personal Twitter account and record it for this entry. Be right back. Okay, my first attempt was unsuccessful, the servers it seems are too busy. Too many people are unplugging themselves. I guess it will have to wait. Ugh, now it is killing me… Let me go do something else.

Alright, so far it is a no go and I am tired of trying. I will destroy my Twitter account later today if possible, maybe even my MySpace, Linkedin (these are simple as I rarely use them) and someday, yes, someday possibly my Facebook! Until then I will post this entry on my Facebook Wall (I said it!) to see if anyone else secretly wants to break free.

See you on the outside.

Kinda…

"i" on News

Sorry to everyone I could only find  this video with annoying ads. I try to avoid this whenever possible.

Kill your MySpace. Delete your profile.

I said it.

Today’s game is World Without Oil. I am beyond excited to come up with a plan of what to do in the first 32 weeks of a global oil crisis. I don’t know what medium I will use yet, but I love to think and come up with solutions, especially in a virtual world, so bring it.

According to the WWO site, “World Without Oil concluded on June 1, 2007. [They are] no longer publishing links to in-game stories on the WWO site (unless they’re really good). But everyone is welcome to sign up as a Netizen Hero and to participate in “WWO Lives,” [their] ongoing blog about all matters WWO.”

The cool thing is they say they will link to good in-game stories from the WWO Lives blog. That means only the superstar stories will make it on the site, which is a still a competition, and who doesn’t like a little healthy competition.

I’m in.

All About Me

I start many things with good intentions, many, many things. This time I intend to stay focused. This time I will not leave behind what I started. This time it is larger and more important than my obsession with Martha Stewart, all design shows, and Teresa Witherspoon. :P This time it is about the greater good...this time I am serious.

Wanna cool, original, organic cotton, handmade, super fresh t-shirt? Yes you do...
