Thinking Different

A random thought that came to me while reading…

“All people are the same. It’s the mental models we adhere to that set us apart.”

Today and tomorrow (August 14 & 15) WEEI, NESN, and the Red Sox are trying to raise $4 million for the Jimmy Fund. For those of you who are unaware of what the Jimmy Fund is, it is a cause setup to support children and adults with their battle against cancer. The Jimmy Fund and the Dana Farber Cancer Institute do an amazing job of providing hope to the thousands of people diagnosed with this disease each year.

If you are looking for one place to donate money to this year, please consider the Jummy Fund. Over the next 2 days, WEEI is hosting a telethon to raise the $4 million. Listen to their broadcast for 5 minutes and I guarantee you will agree that this is an amazing program. I’m not affiliated with the any of the involved parties and my family has been fortunate enough to not have to deal with cancer for the past few years. However, as a devoted Boston sports fan, I’m always tuned into WEEI’s great sports radio broadcast and the days in August where they interrupt the normal sports radio routine to raise money for this great cause, are best days to listen all year. You can not help but be brought to tears and be inspired by the stories you’ll hear.

Update: It looks like the goal was exceeded…unofficial total is $4.6+ million…awesome!!!

This is shocking and sad. Words can’t even describe how pathetic we are as a society for something like this to happen on a busy street in the US. I’d like to think this an isolated incident but seeing how many people saw this event happen and watched this man lie in the road without doing anything makes me sick. Maybe this is one of those “group think” incidents where everyone looks at each other waiting for the other person to respond or maybe we no longer have any regard for anyone but ourselves. Very sad and disturbing.

I’m looking for someone who can help with retrieving a JSON file created by Rails and using JavaScrtipt to parse the information into a web page. I have been searching everywhere on the web on how to do this but I can’t seem to get it to work which is very frustrating considering each tutorial talks about how easy JSON is. The file output by Rails looks fine but I keep getting an invalid label error. I’ve found multiple sites which explains the problem but none which show how to fix it when you are adding a .js file dynamically. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

The web application I’ve been building, Marketing for Mavens, has taken another giant step forward as it is now up and running on the hosting server. I’ve noticed some additional bugs after the migration that need to be resolved but overall it is looking very good. By the end of the week, I should have it integrated into marketingformavens.com so you can see what it looks like from a “citizen” perspective.

Blogging to wordpress on the iPhone is a huge pain but I’m doing so in hope that I can save at least one person two hours of their life. On Friday, I ent to see Doomsday and it is by far the worst movie I have ever seen in my life. The plot falls apart just minutes into the movie and it just keeps getting worse. There are so many things that don’t make sense I’m not even sure where to begin.

I’d go into more detail but I’m getting too frustrated trying to make corrections to his post. I’m not sure if iPhone is to blame or if its wordpress but this is far more difficult than it should be.

Ever since I first heard the rumors that iPhone update 1.1.4 would have flash support, I’ve been anxiously awaiting for it to come out. Unfortunately, 1.1.4 came out today without such support, at least not that I’ve been able to find. I guess I’ll continue to hope that it makes the next release. Oh, well.
