Since becoming an honorary cow over at John Cow, the pressure has been on to produce really compelling, funny content. And, despite being normally passionate, I have found myself a bit short on good memes. I even spent a couple of hours last night catching up on all my favorite bloggers, reading my roommate's Cosmo Magazine (love those "finding a good man" articles -- I'm right here, ladies!), and even finished a book on pop science entitled How to Clone the Perfect Blonde.
I realized today, of course, that I've been working too much. All work and no play makes Johnny a dull boy. I haven't had a beer with a friend in a couple of weeks, and I feel weary regurgitating blogging/schmoozing/business tips today.
So how about some fun speed-linking?
- My friend David rambled today about how Green is the new business buzzword of choice. The article has few too many links in it for my taste (yes, the irony is intentional), but it has a couple of very groovy Kermit videos. It's not easy being Green. Unless you drive a Ford Eclipse. (Check out the flash-based Ford site, btw -- I love what they did with everyone's favorite frog. Leave the window open and idle, and he'll inform you that you've won the staring contest!) It occurred to me today, while reviewing this piece, that we have Al Gore's Inconvenient Truth to thank for all of the environmental awareness recently. That and ever-rising gas prices, I suppose.
- Wil Wheaton has a son graduating from high school. Yes, that Wil Wheaton, the guy who played opposite River Phoenix in Stand By Me. The dorky ensign Wesley Crusher on Star Trek: The Next Generation. I thought he was, like, my age. Guess he's got a couple of years on me.
- Niva over at Venture Hacks is looking for a one (wo)man developer army. Sounds like a pretty cool gig. The blog ain't too shabby, either, if you're into that whole entrepreneurial/venture capital thing. ;-)
- The Buffalo Theory is not in Wikipedia nor Urban Dictionary. Ouch! Good thing Google still knows everything. (This one is really funny, btw -- don't be surprised if our good buddy John Cow starts talking about this sometime soon.)
If you like this post, buy me a beer. No, don't paypal me three bucks. Actually buy me a beer. In person. I am in need of some good banter. Contact me here.

I can't help you with the memes, I'm all out having traded my last ones for social constructs... you might want to check out my webcomic though as my readers are fairly meme aware.
