This is another test of iceflake to see if everything is working fine on it. I’m thinking about a lot of changes on the site so stay tuned to this blog and the iceflake blog.

Iceflake, the site I’ve been working on since what seems like the dawn of time, has finally gone live. This is a combination launch announcement and test entry to see if the site works. What is Iceflake, you ask? It’s a site that brings you all the things your friends create on popular sites like Myspace, Facebook, Youtube, and many others. Go check it out. I’m planning to write a longer, more indepth post on the making of Iceflake.
UPDATE: The test worked. If you go to my Iceflake Profile page you can see this post aggregated on it.
posting has been dead slow for the past week since I was busy with Iceflake and terribly sick over the past three days. Hopefully I’ll start really posting this week. It’s funny how the tone of this entry suggests I have a huge audience. oh well, maybe someday…
Testing iceflake with Danny
THere has been some speculation from the media since yesterday that the much anticipated PS3 will cost a whopping $800!!! if this is indeed true (Sony has not flatly rejected it yet and has actually hinted at a confirmation of the rumor), it could potentially render Sony as practically obsolete.
Perhaps more importantly for the rest of the world, it would mean that Microsoft would yet again become the gatekeeper for one of the mass market’s future entry points into the world of multimedia and information. The convergence meme that Bill Gates has been touting for years will come true if Sony prices itself out of the market. This whole idea of a futre in which Microsoft is much more powerful than it is even now is one that I will explore in a longer, more insightful post, but for now, suffice it to say that Sony is slitting its own wrists if it delays and/or launches at anything close to the $800 price point (ugh…marketingspeak spewing out:).
This is my first, in what I predict will be a long affair with blogging, entry (as is obvious, my grammar skills have seriously declined over the past few months:) . I have written random test blogs here and there for an upcoming launch of a cool product I’ve been working on but nothing really insightful.
But anyways, I think I’ll use this post to introduce myself a little. I’m a recent graduate of Baruch College with a relatively useless degree in marketing. I’m really passionate about technology and entrepreurship and I am on the brink of launching a new company that I have been working on for almost a full year. I love reading books about business and my favorite author is Dostoevsky. My favorite movie of all time is probably the incredible Spirited Away. And…uh…yeah that’s it; I’ve summed up my entire existence in 4 badly written sentences :-). This blogging thing is gonna be fun!
