Bend Your Job Until It Breaks

(Community Matters) A friend writes about breakfast with Steven


(Community Matters) online fundraising platform – lots of buzz. Mike Maples Jr and list of star investors.

Of course I’m partial to Convio, now Blackbaud who’s developed the standard of excellence. And, Rally is more grassroots – sorta between Kickstart and a professional site like Convio.

I see Zilker Summer Musical is using Rally

Hat Tip: Playbook

Mac Users Spend More on Hotels

(Community Matters) Interesting tidbit from Playbook

“Orbitz found Mac users on average spend $20 to $30 more a night on hotels than their PC counterparts, a significant margin given the site’s average nightly hotel booking is around $100, chief scientist Wai Gen Yee said. Mac users are 40% more likely to book a four- or five-star hotel than PC users, Mr. Yee said, and when Mac and PC users book the same hotel, Mac users tend to stay in more expensive rooms.”

Ha, and Steven always claims it’s me booking the ritzier places!
