I've always looked for true love in all the wrong places, but I've always fancied myself a matchmaker of sorts when it comes to my love for technology.
So why not a hybrid of social networks and traditional online matchmaking?
Facebook, meet Match.Com. Match.Com, meet Facebook.
Facebook, Match is a nice, intelligent, mid-career Dallas-based professional looking to meet some new prospects and expand her horizons.
Match, Facebook is a young, rebellious, but very popular Silicon Valley upstart who has more friends than he can count, and is very aggressive in his forays to seek out intimate relations and learn everything he can about his new friends.
Could it be a match made in cyber heaven?
Only a few Cupid's arrows...and the new "Match My Friends" Facebook application...can tell.
While we leave Facebook and Match.com in their puppy love bliss, for those of you who were feeling abandoned by Leo Laporte and the TWiT gang, fear not, they're back.
I've been a regular TWiT listener for a couple of years now, so when they miss a beat, I -- along with a few thousand other in the TWiT army -- miss it with them.
This week, entitled appropriately enough, "John's Nuts," you won't want to miss the priceless Jason Calacanis imitation of John C. Dvorak (slash blog).
Brooklyn, meet Silicon Valley. Silicon Valley, meet Brooklyn.
And speaking of New York, a quick shout out and congrats to mi amigo Mike H., who after spending some time away getting his pilot's license just landed safely as SVP of schmooze (err, sales) at Veoh.
Don't worry, dude, I was a fan before you got there and won't let your arrival color my judgment.
It's about time you got a job, and now you have no excuse not to show up for SXSW Interactive.
