The Infamous Ghetto Indoor Pool

So I'm trying to be a good little blogger and update this puppy every day. I've got two hours left before it's tomorrow and I don't have the picture I need to do the update I want, so we're going into the vault.

A couple years ago I put the biggest above ground pool I could find in my living room. The pictures were posted to a bunch of those link collecting sites and almost 7000 people saw the pictures the first day. Every year or so they are rediscovered and they get a ton of hits. However, I've never publicly told the story of the pool and why I did it. Avast!

One day my friend Crystal sends me an IM. Here's a dramatic rendition of the event :

AOL and resumes

On Non linear life

I read not too long ago that having an AOL email address automatically dated you. My 82 year dad has AOL.

AOL used to be the standard. In fact is was the only game in town.

Personal branding includes how tech savy you are. But if you have an account with AOL, how much does that really matter in a job hunt?

I would say not much. Based on my experience, your career and the ability to find work is far more influenced by who you know.

Yeah, really. My 82 year dad knows this.
