Good Engineer or Two.

jonathanmarcus:

I am looking for a good engineer or two to help me build a new web service (in the areas of search and blogs). In the past 4 years, I have helped start Pronto.com and run Vimeo.com. And, I have learned quite a bit.

I would like the service to be heavily based on cloud computing infrastructure (e.g. Amazon Web Services). PHP or Python + database expertise is required.

Work from anywhere in the US. Flexible hours. Competitive salary, medical and early equity. Plus, a fun challenge!

Please contact me if you are interested: jonathan underscore marcus @msn plus the regular. I would appreciate referrals as well.

Thanks – Jonathan.

1. Dwyane Wade, Miami, 2006 It’s hard to overstate how awesome Wade was in leading the Heat to their lone championship, particularly in the final four games when Miami rallied from a 2-0 deficit to stun the Mavs. Wade started the comeback by leading the Heat back from a 13-point fourth quarter deficit in Game 3, scoring 12 points in the final 6½ minutes to send the game to OT. He also made the biggest play of the series with his crazy dribbling foray to the rim at the end of overtime in Game 5 that — controversially — earned a whistle from referee Bennett Salvatore and a trip to the line for the winning free throws. For the series, Wade averaged 34.7 points, 7.8 rebounds, 3.8 assists and 2.7 steals — and this in a slow-paced series (neither team cleared the century mark in regulation in any of the six games). His basket attacks were so deadly because the Mavs couldn’t stop fouling him. Wade shot a whopping 97 free throws in the six games — the most of any player since the merger — including 25 in Game 5. Overall, Wade’s 33.8 PER is easily the best of any Finals performer since the merger. While it seems strange to have somebody besides Michael Jordan in the top spot, the truth is Jordan never dominated a Finals to this extent. At the time, many called Wade’s performance Jordanesque. It turns out they might have been selling him short. (via ESPN - Ranking the greatest Finals performances: No. 1 - NBA

Powered by Service. Genius.

Last night (11pm) I ordered a pair of jeans from Zappos. I selected the free shipping option which takes 4-5 days. At 1:30am I received an email from Zappos to say that they decided to upgrade my shipping at no cost, and that the jeans have been shipped. At 1pm today I received my jeans. I was shocked. Zappos sent me a pair of jeans from across the country in roughly 12 hours, for free. And I thought Amazon Prime was good.

To my thoughtful neighbors:

For the longest time I could not figure out why there was such an inordinate amount of hair on my balcony. It was as though someone was running a black-market dog grooming operation specializing in the elderly. Then, the other night I noticed something waving to and fro in front of my balcony. What was it you ask? YOU shaking out your rugs directly onto my balcony. Please be so kind as to refrain (def: to keep oneself from doing, feeling, or indulging in something and especially from following a passing impulse) from doing so in the future. 


Thank you,

Your neighbors to the south (I speak for all of them).
