Bonus Code IGGY on Party Poker, damnit!
A few thoughts. The prior snippet about this here humble poker blog has provoked me to write up a damn uber. It might not be this weekend, but damnit, I'm gonna write one.
It's only for lack of time.
I know, that's the lamest of all excuses, but MMAjunkie.com continues to explode. Hell, we're now serving up
millions a lot of ad impressions a month.
And I wanted to mention that we inked a deal with my hero, Mark Cuban, to be the exclusive web partner with his TV network for the MMA show, Inside MMA. I guess I can't say anything else until the show broadcasts.
For now, Mr. Mark Cuban excoriates a journalist for the mis-informed article written in the Washington Post at Blog Maverick.

Bonus Code IGGY on Party Poker
"Party Poker Blog, a.k.a. Guinness and Poker, a.k.a. Iggy’s blog. My heart breaks a little every time there’s a new post there, because the man who once used to work under the motto “destroying workplace productivity” with his uber posts of endless links, gossip, pictures and other goodies, has now basically reduced himself to three things: Quoting in full (although usually not linking) the occasional newspaper article on something poker related, quoting in full articles related to the US presidential race, usually with a very obvious slant of pro-Obama, con-Hillary, and posting poker stories by Johnny Hughes. Unfortunately, the lion’s share of his posts are in the second category. And if you’re wondering what exactly it is Iggy writes himself in all of this, you’re touching a good point. I think my post here today contains more words than he’s written himself in the past year. And he keeps promising an upcoming uber, but it never shows up. We miss you, Iggy, come back to the dark side. Blog about politics if you really feel you have to, but give us that uber that you’ve talked about for six months now."
It's funny cause it's true.
To be fair, I still have oodles and oodles of photo's to post. I just need the
Poker. Ahh, poker. How I love thee.

Happy St. Paddy's Day!
I've been too busy today to find anything related for a post - perhaps when I get home.
But for those of you who enjoy reading about tech companies, here's a stunning story about a massive implosion of a Canadian firm that specialized in arbitrage. Here's the cover story from the Financial Post:
A record $160-million VC investment. A rich Web strategy. A quirky founder. For a few weeks last spring, Guelph, Ont.’s Geosign had it all. Then mighty Google stirred. And it was over
