I vlog you vlog

I have to admit I'm addicted to stupid stuff like www.rocketboom.com, and almost daily load up my ipod with junk to digest during all those extra momements when I'm caught waiting or driving or something. Maybe it was me but I think some of the other drivers on FDR drive Friday night didn't like it that I was watching my iPod and manuevering the rush hour traffic at the same time. In a different life I'd convince everyone to do it, I'd be the Andy Warhol of vlog superstardom. Somehow I am not cool enough yet to convince even my most close and desperate friends.

The Conversion Funnel

This concept strikes me as just bad, oversimplistic. Since when do web users (certainly not I!), take a linear approach to answering their question, finding and buying a product, or whatever they may be currently doing? Shrug off the metrics geeks, and get creative.

Who can afford to buy a home?

Interesting article in RIS Media, entitled Scrimping for a Mortgage indicates that your neighbor is stretched far more than you may think.

According to a 2005 study by the Public Policy Institute of California, more than half of households in Monterey County pay more than 30% of their pre-tax income on housing. I bet if the same study were performed elsewhere, we'd find similar results.
