Louis Cars

Written by Scrivs on November 28, 2005

When people speak of the longtail and blog networks I have to wonder if they had model cars in mind? If not they are missing out on one of the best sites concerning the topic around the web. Alvin Soon’s first entry into the Network focuses on diecast car collections, yet somehow even makes me interested in them with great photos and content.

Louis shares his love of cars with photos and reviews of his diecast car collection.

Welcome Alvin.

Well See, I Really Meant Monday

Written by Scrivs on November 25, 2005

Not being certain how traffic is on the day after Thanksgiving I have decided to hold today’s announcements till Monday to give the newest members a fair shake. Hope everyone had a happy Thanksgiving and is making sure to enjoy their weekends. If you are reading this right now you probably need to step away from the computer or at the very least open World of Warcraft and get some entertainment going.

It looks like Round 3 can be classified as the “round of the college kids” because again we have another spectacular site done by a student. Koray Ataman is a student that talks about technology, Web 2.0, business and other geeky things, but he doesn’t talk about them as if he knows everything. He does so more in an inquisitive nature which helps both him and his audience share in the learning experience.

Koray Online is basically a blog that I use to discuss issues that I find pressing, and some times not so pressing. Be it design, tech, news, gossip, business, or what I had for lunch today. Mostly the former few, but what I strive for is a sense of ordered spontaneity. It’s a place where I can vent, discuss, criticize and be criticized. It’s constantly growing and reshaping itself, and for that I am most proud. I could probably go on for hours about why Koray Online is ‘awesome’ but I really shouldn’t. I guess I should also add that I am ridiculously excited to be a part of the 9rules ‘fold’ and I look forward to interacting with the members and readers.

We are excited to have you join us as well Koray. Welcome.

Beancounter Blog

Written by Scrivs on November 23, 2005

Finance and accounting and all of that other money stuff doesn’t really interest me. Just as long as the money is in my bank that’s all that seems to matter, but after going through Beancounter Blog I definitely have a greater appreciation forthis topic. Jason Guthrie does a spectacular job of talking in layman’s terms and never gives off the impression that he is trying to sound better than you. This is just straight money talk and that’s the way it should be.

BeancounterBlog is dedicated to bringing the often confusing world of accounting, the economy, and personal finance to the “average Joe.” We’re dedicated to keeping you up to date with the latest news and issues in the areas of taxes, real estate, accounting, the economy, and personal finance. We try and break harder topics down so that you can explain the theory behind foreign currency exchange rates to everyone – even your great Aunt Gertrude. We also strive to only present topics that are interesting, current, and relevant so that you can rely on our site for information on how to understand the financial world and use its resources to your
advantage – not to get rich quick – but simply to act wisely.

Welcome Jason.
