Funniest Moment of 2009 NBA All Star Game

At the last minute on Sunday, my Dad (who is visiting from Seattle) and I scored tickets to the 2009 NBA All Star Game, which amazingly took place in my current residence of Phoenix, Arizona.

I have been to several professional basketball games in the past, including three separate Michael Jordan games (another story for another time), but no games since the late 90’s, and nothing as star-studded as an All Star Game. w00t!

The NBA has changed a tremendous amount in the past 15 years with the dominant players being Lebron, Kobe, and still Shaq, who is now on Twitter. Anyone who follows Shaq knows how much of a goofy, fun guy he is. During his intro, Shaq put on one of the funniest dances I have ever seen.

I won’t even try to describe it. Just watch…

You can see the TwitPics I took from the game: NBA All Star 2009 Twitpics

I also took a bunch of video with my Flip Mino HD which I will be posting shortly. What an incredibly fun experience!

UPDATE: Video I took with my Flip Mino HD of awesome SHAQ DUNK!!!!!

Seth Godin’s Advice to Internet Startups In the Down Economy

The other day I was perusing Mashable and I found this video by Seth Godin in which he explains how businesses should change their focus in the down economy. It is short, but worth watching.

If you don’t know who Seth Godin is, he is the author of many popular business books and a speaker with appearances at Google, TED and a number of charities. Godin popularized the topic of permission marketing.

What advice do you have for online businesses and other startups in this down economy?
