Sorry about the delay in getting the full show notes up…here they are (8/28, 8 p.m. ET):

Here are some things John LeMasney mentioned:

  • Spreeder.com – A free online speed reading application.
  • FoodGawker.com – A site devoted to beautiful food imagery.
  • ma.gnolia.com – A social bookmarking site that announced plans to make the platform open source with the hope to become “the WordPress of social bookmarking.”
  • FaceYourManga.com – John refers to “Manga Me” in the podcast, but I believe this is the site he used to create his anime likeness…that’s the one I used after he talked about it. But if John wants to correct any of this, I’m sure he will.
  • “prevail-whale” – John took the infamous Twitter “fail-whale” and turned it into a symbol of success (see photo above)…and it got noticed around the Internet.
  • John’s Southern Tier Back Burner review – Here is his opinion on this barleywine style ale on one of his side projects, beercritic.wordpress.com.

Finally, here is a YouTube video of Christian Beach peforming “Open Spaces” at Paul’s Tavern in Lake Como, NJ, on Feb. 2, 2008. I appear from about the :35 mark to about 1:04 playing accordion (although you can only really hear it in the second verse of the song). Enjoy! – Brian
