Elvis stamp When I went to summer camp, I used to send letters to my parents in Access Capital postage paid Business Reply Envelopes so that I didn’t need to put a stamp on them. My parents taught me that we could write off the cost of my postage that way. I was 10 years old and training for a lifetime as a value player. Also, it meant I got to keep my totally sweet Elvis stamps.

My sister called me last Monday afternoon right as the Spitzer story was breaking. She had not yet heard the news, so I brought her up to speed, explaining the details about the, uh, “services” that Spitzer had sought and the amount - reported at that time at $4,400 per hour - he had paid for said services.

Upon hearing this news, my sister let out the expected gasp and then, without missing a beat, replied:

“That’s more than Arun!”

Truth be told, I think Advantage is a better value.

Sort of a grownup

Tuesday, March 18th, 2008

The three people who read this blog have encouraged me to be more expressive about myself and not merely my penchant for writing javascript while listening to retro Britpop. Even if Duran Duran’s newest album is quite good. But I digress.

This fall, I’ll be returning full-time to school to pursue an MBA at NYU Stern. Many things have changed since I entered college eight years ago. I’ve changed. Communication has changed. Blackboard has not.

Two weeks ago, I went to a happy hour organized by a group of my future classmates at The Fat Black Pussycat. The awful choice of venue notwithstanding, it was great to meet so many new, seemingly eager people. People were so excitedly talking about their interests and career goals. Not surprisingly I didn’t meet anyone interested in technology or web-based services, but I loved being surrounded by so much optimism.

By the time I enter b school, I will have been away from college for as long as I attended it, but I’m still not entirely comfortable with the idea that I’m sort of a grownup now. And while I’m also not entirely comfortable sharing real thoughts on a blog (it’s just so laughably emo to me), I’m embracing what’s ahead. Even if that means my friends probably aren’t hanging out with high school girls anymore.

Digital breakup

Tuesday, March 18th, 2008

First I ended a ten year relationship with DigitalDaze, now I’ve called it quits with Blogger after six generally awkward years. Farewell Blogger. You teased me with your easy setup many years ago, but over time you became unwieldy and frustrating, and you appear to be low on Big G’s list of products it’s using to take over the world. To the three of you who read this site regularly (hi Sam!), the look will be quite different, so give me a few days to get everything up and back to normal. The Wordpress importer took care of the posts, so at least the original content is all still there.
