Excellent post, Gini.
Just yesterday I went to a memorial service for a friend who was killed after being struck be a van while in the cross walk. I had ran with him not more than 20 minutes before as it was during our a training run for our marathon group a few weeks ago. He had got caught in the middle of the crosswalk on a short light, one driver waved him ahead while the second driver (who was behind the first and couldn't see what was happening) pulled around and hit him. He was 60 years old and had qualified for Boston for the first time. Sadly, now he will never get to run it.
So I would add to to the list of tips for cyclists and runners - Use extreme caution if a driver waves you on - as drivers in car are not always communicating with each other.
Have a safe holiday everyone.
This is my favorite blog post ever. By anyone. Throughout the history of blog posts. Please talk about gelato and food in every post. It will help me learn about social media by proxy - kjnd of like how I learn about politics from Comedy Central.

@Doug_Davidoff Thanks David, for allowing me to clarify. The fact that I'm listed as a single female is inaccurate, but still dangerous as it could potentially invite unwanted company to our home. And I imagine you are right about the monetization stragety, though such is not an area of my expertise.
4 years ago on Deleting Your Spokeo Profile
Well in my case anyway, the Spokeo info was inaccurate, which will hopefully throw off any would-be stalkers. Some of the inacurracies include: no profile with my married name, my maiden name profile fuses several pieces of info from diffrent locations, for example listing my former St. Louis address as one I have in Denver. My husband's profile is a little more accurate - but he is also listed as a child of two parents (unknown) in our household. I'm listed as a single female in our house - which freaked me out a bit with the whole stalker thing.
Deleting all the various incarnations of the profile anyway, and I appreciate the specific instructions on how to opt-out, Gini.
I'll help you get outside your comfort zone by having more fun, Gini!! For myself, a way that I'm going to adventure outside of my comfort zone is to say "NO". In a calm and assertive way, not a anxious, passive agressive way. Just a calm and solid, No, and Thankyou. This NO applies to personal and professional requests. I'm trying to develop my psychotherapy practice niche to focus mainly on working with divorce related concerns, so sometimes it's hard to turn down work that doesn't fit that niche - but I have to in order to develop a more in depth, thorough understanding of the work on which I do want to focus. And personally, well, I have a big need to be liked - so I always worry about people not liking me if I say 'No'. That's going to have to change too if I want to reach my goals. Bring it on 2011!

I like posts about design and I also appreciate risk. Really though I'm hoping new logo is a phase in their experimentation of brand identity. It's just not very appealing and seems more like a font than a logo. That being said - I still like their jeans.
