Opening on Thanksgiving? You’re Dead to Me!

Black Friday Madness

In 2011, retailers started opening at midnight on Friday to have their Black Friday sales. In 2012, they crossed the line and started opening earlier and earlier. This year, in an effort to be first, a bunch of retailers are opening early on Thanksgiving day and some are even staying open through Friday. REI was […]

PatrickD’s Link to the World

PatrickD's Link to the World

When I made my first web page, it was the summer of 1994.  I was about to enter my senior year of college at Worcester Polytechnic Institute as a Computer Science major.  I had discovered Gopher the same summer, but “the World Wide Web” won me over very quickly because it had images and it […]

Anything but wood or fiberglass panels

MegaZone has resigned from Anime Boston and AX staff. I’m going to take over the Anime Boston panel application process and scheduling in his absence (because at this point it’s too late to find anyone new to step in and do it.) He sent me all the panel request forms that had been submitted up […]

Arisia ’03 – The Report

Arisia 2003

So not much happened at Arisia on Friday. I met up with Adam and Derek briefly, checked out what was going on, went home, and that was about it. I burned the 3rd season Digimon theme to a CD in preparation for Arisia’s masquerade the next day. On Saturday, I rolled in to the Boston […]

Rebuttal from Jeff

Date: 21 Jan 2003 09:27 AM To: All Monster Employees From: Jeff Taylor A week ago it was brought to my attention, through the Harvard Business School Communications Office, that a concerned Harvard alumni had called out my “misuse” of the term (title) Executive MBA/OPM on my bio. I have always been upfront about my […]

Oh, man… Somehow this doesn’t surprise me… exec claims undeserved MBA – magazine from Reuters. He was in TV ads for UMass after he went back to finish his degree there. …and it took the press this long to realize that he earned his undergrad degree after this fake MBA? By the way, did I mention I had a doctorate from […]

Monster v10.0 (or so…)

A new design for Monster launches tomorrow. Coding for it has occupied most of my time this week. …and as a representative of the company, I’d like to apologize for it sucking. I can’t imagine they’ll keep this design for more than 6 months before they get sick of it and realize it’s just not […]

Imagine Whirled Peas

I went to another cousins’ dinner tonight at Elly’s. Tonight’s adventure was split pea soup. Ugh. I hate peas. Oh well, it actually wasn’t too bad. Better than fish. Pretty busy at work this week with the new version of the site in progress. I’m being quite productive. Wheee! Of course, the more I look […]

Right to the top

So I’ve mentioned how the new Monster home page has a big “success story” photo and a silly quote. Well, Pete and I decided to have a little fun. He edited a screenshot of the page to say, “I got laid!” instead of “I got laid off…”. I decided to one-up him by sticking a […]
