The Search is Over!

Well today was a big day and the search is over...I know my blog is generally about Search Marketing but there has been another big Search going on within a big passion in my life and today the search is over!

Newcastle United need to search no more as Big Sam is now in town!

Sam Allardyce has become the next in a long line of recent Newcastle United managers and for one I hope the search is over for a while!

Come on the Toon!

Another Wag at Internet World 2007 with a little Excite

Well we did it again last week at Internet World 2007 on Wednesday. After the success of Chinwag Lives PPC Earthquake event I was on the panel at few weeks back in london we gave it another go!

Same format and panel just a new audience and I have to say it seemed to work just as well if not better. All seats were taken and a lot of good questions asked.

The hour seemed to fly by and chatting with Mike and Sam from Chinwag after the event we were keen to do it again and make a regular occurrence of the format at shows. Mike fancied a European tour.

The day finished wit a few celebratory beers at the pub just down the road where all the chinwag crew attended.

I got talking to a couple of people from Excite one of my personal favourite search engines over the years and I promised that I would say on my blog as I did on the night (exite people thought I wouldn't!...but here you go guys) that I feel that the web based RSS reader functionality on the homepage of Excite is second to none out there!

Keep up the good work and long may it last Excite!

Its a long and dangerous journey from New York these days....according to Google!

Well most of us would take a flight I would say and arrive into London in about 7 hours. Google Maps has another idea I am afraid which I would not take literally! Go on to Google.com and do the following:

1. click on "maps"
2. click on "get directions"
3. type " New York " in the first box (the "from" box)
4. type " London " in the second box (the "to" box)
5. click on "get directions"
6. Read step #24

Yes they are actually asking you to swim the Atlantic!! Best of luck to all that follow these directions.
