Suffering Sandbox Syndrome?

Got a site that is languishing in the litterbox and you’ve given up on it? Drop me an email at todd @

I’m looking for sites that are content rich and I want to either buy the sites or split AdSense/Chitika/YPN money. This is so straight up by-the-books I can’t hardly stomach it 😉

Anthony Noto & Phone Spam

So there’s there’s this dude named Anthony Noto and he’s an analyst at Goldman Sachs. I’d like to punch him in the nut sack. Perhaps I should back up a few weeks and tell you why.

A few weeks backs some chick at Goldman Sachs called me up and asked me a few SEM Industry questions for some sort of poll or something. Feeling all cocky and important that Goldman Sachs would call little ol’ me I happily babbled on a variety of points for her. She thanked me for my time and that was that.

A few days later I come into the office and see a voicemail waiting for me. It’s from Anthony Noto – big time Goldman Sachs Analyst. How cool am I? He was so impressed with what I told his research assistant that he’s calling me directly to give me stock tips and make me rich in return for the valuable information I provided. Right?


It’s it a long long long long long voicemail about his hot stocks and why they are recommended buys etc. The timestamp indicates it came in the wee hours of the morning when I was pretty much guaranteed to not be here. About half way through I give up and hit 3-3-7 to fast forward to the end and delete. This was the first of many VM spams to come my way.

Finally after deleting many of these I actually sat all the way through one to get his phone number which he leaves to the very end of course. I sat all the way through cuz while I do know how to jump all the way to the end of a message no amount of button mashing would just skip forward partially.

A few minutes later after a very friendly chat with his assistant (who sounds quite sexy on the phone) I’m assured I’ll be taken off the list and we have a chuckle about his messages etc (he talks so fast you can barely follow along). I’m satisfied that I will no longer be plagued by another Anthony Noto, frenetic, caffeine induced stock expose.

This morning I see the VM light flashing….

THAT is why I think Anthony Noto deserves a shot to the sack.

MSN, Pubcon and Vodka

Well I did make it back home from Pubcon in Las Vegas last week. Tip of the hat to Tabke and crew for a good show all around. It seems that 9 practice shows have had their impact – Pubcon X was the best yet from where I was standing. It was great to hang out with old and new friends and as usual watch Dax (rumored President of WebGuerrilla) get in some sort of shit. I’m taking up a collection to buy him some decent shoes so we don’t all wind up in the lobby again. Seriously tho – I’ll bet he paid 3X what I paid for my shoes 😉

MSN has really stepped up the webmaster relationship game as well by taking me out for dinner (well, there were a few other’s there as well including Jenstar). We had some awesome Russian food at Red Square then headed into the vodka vault for some pineapple vodka. Was lots of fun.
