Friday Fun

08/27/2004

This one is especially for web and blog people, but it's so very cool that I'm including it in Friday Fun! Found on the Research Buzz. Michael Fagan has created an amazing tool - the Fagan Finding - discover lots of information about a URL including site links, cache, blog feeds and more!

Two views on political commercials.-"The idea that you can merchandise candidates for high office like breakfast cereal is the ultimate indignity to the democratic process."-Democratic candidate Adlai Stevenson, 1956
-"Television is no gimmick, and nobody will ever be elected to major office again without presenting themselves well on it."-Television producer and Nixon campaign consultant Roger Ailes, 1968

Heading into the Republican National Convention here's a site that should please both news junkies and ad junkies. The Living Room Candidate features TV commercials of presidential elections from 1952 - 2004.

I'll Take Manhattan. The NYC Host Committee has tips for folks who live in Manhattan and visitors. I especially liked this one - "All NYC subways will run, but exits and entrances might be limited." Sounds like an urban game of hide and seek...if you can find your way in you can play. And oh if you find your way out you get extra points. Jay and David...good monologue material yours for the taking!

P.s. Happy Birthday Susan!
