1. Life is good. I opened my eyes the other day with my waking thought being that I basically already have everything I ever wanted. While there's still a few things I'd like to have/do, those items on the wish lists are the icing and gravy things. I already have all the biggies, or have at least tasted enough of them to be content that I've experienced them to at least know what they feel like. This is a good thought to wake up to, and it gives great perspective about all the daily speed bumps.
2. Twittorati. We launched Twittorati -- where the tweetosphere meets the blogosphere -- a little over a week ago. I'm very happy with the results. The site is really interesting: it tracks the tweets of the most influential bloggers on the internet. Further, the site has received really good feedback, and early traffic levels are satisfying.
3. Public healtcare plan. I'm not sure how we're going to net out on getting a healthcare bill, but IMHO anything that doesn't include a public insurance option will be a dismal failure. Right here, right now, I am going on the record to declare that as a CEO of a small business, our company will switch to a public insurance option if one passes. I also won't hold my breath, because I've seen how special interests have and continue to keep us from doing the right thing on numerous issues.
4. Palin poll results. It's no secret how I feel about Sarah Palin, but from a purely objective marketing perspective, her resignation is a huge marketing blunder. The most recent poll shows significantly declining "is-she-qualified-to-be-president" ratings even amongst Republicans.
