how it's a new world, people, and this is how we do things

i got two emails tonight, and they both help out two good people.

the first one is a link to a facebook page for "the myth of lost", an unauthorized look into that amazing tv show by my friend, marc oromaner. if you're facebook inclined (and if you aren't, what's wrong with you?), then become a fan of the book and you'll be notified when it comes out in september.

and then i got another e-mail, this one from my friend mike o'neill about his company, "the jimi". so do the click thing and help a brother out:

We just got some pretty great news about my company. We’ve been chosen as one of the twenty semi-finalists in the Forbes Magazine ‘Boost Your Business’ contest. It’s a small biz competition with a first prize of $100,000 to invest in your business. Each semi-finalist puts up a 30” elevator pitch video and readers vote their favorite. These votes determine the top 5, who then get to present full on business plans to a Forbes panel of experts.

Here’s the link. It’d be great if you could vote for us and email anyone and everyone you know, and ask them to vote for us too. We’re currently ranked 2nd unofficially, but that could be short-lived, so we need all the help and exposure to as many people as we can get to stay in the top 5. Feel free to use any legal means necessary! Thanks.

i'd feel dirty about this, but mike and the jimi absolutely deserve all the praise and votes they'll get. hopefully, it'll be enough.
