Seems appropriate to link back to an episode of Random 60 discussing Flickr. Remember, this was three years ago. “The woman CEO” that I mention in the episode is not the current CEO Marisa Mayer but Carol Bartz. There have been five CEOs at Yahoo! since I recorded this episode!
Special guest, and Viddler Systems Administrator, James Cross and I discuss kid toys.
No question this time. Just Mountains. Special guest is Viddler’s Lead Designer Andrew Smith.
Turn up your speakers for this one folks. My friend Eric Brophy and I (more him than me) have a chat about geocoding, mashups, Twitter, and the potential for other geocoded things to pop up in the future.
You can pretty much expect First initial, last name to be 85% geo in 2010.
No question this time around… simply sound off in the comments.

Random 60: When was the last time you wore a suit?

Random 60: How do you heat your home?
What type of heat do you use? It seems the possibilities are endless. Wood stove, fireplace, propane, natural gas, electric, pellet stove, maybe you just run in place?, etc.
Sound off in the comments!

Random 60: What time do you wake up?
I wake up every morning around 6:45a. I love it. Back in 2006 I was getting up at 7. As I get older, I’m getting up earlier. But really, I enjoy waking up early and getting things accomplished. It is when I work best.
What about you?
Note: No Jeffs were harmed in the making of this video.

Random 60: What does “microwave safe” actually mean?
Seriously. Because it certainly doesn’t mean “not boiling hot and will melt your hand off if you warm up your dinner from last night in this crazy thing”. Someone please answer this riddle for me.

Random 60: How do you get motivated?
In today’s random 60 I ask where you find your inspiration but after viewing the video I realize what I really meant was how do you get motivated? After you’ve been working for a while on a particular thing and you notice your productivity drop, how do you get motivated to continue?
I used to get up and go for a job. I need to start doing this again.
What do you do?

Random 60: What is your favorite music genre?
Special guest Jeff Johns, a friend and fellow Viddler team member, has a particular taste in music so I put him on the spot to name his favorite music genre.
My favorite music genre would have to be Rock.
What is your favorite music genre? Let us know in the comments!

Random 60: TXT or call?
Which would you prefer? Do you like getting text messages or would you rather someone give you a call and have a conversation about what they want? Are you like me and you’d like phone calls from family and friends for conversation but would rather a simple TXT message or email for business communications?
Let me know in the comments!

Random 60: I love leftovers.
One of my favorite foods is leftovers. Pretty much anything that is leftover from the night before will do – but certain foods stand out. Some, in fact, seem to be even better the next day than they are on the first day. Soups, Mac & Cheese, Pizza, Brownies, just to name a few.
What are your favorite leftovers?

I just got my haircut and I usually just tell the lady at the hair place to cut as much off as she’d like to. What do you do? How often do you get your haircut? Answer in the comments!

Please consider sharing this on Twitter. Thanks.
I often find myself doing things that I really like to do, even if I’m not particularly good at them. Art, for me, is a great example. I like dabbling with watercolors, pastels, pencil sketches, and even digital art like Flip. Basketball is also another example. I love playing basketball but I don’t think anyone on earth would consider me very good at it.
What do you love to do even if you’re not particularly good at it?
Side note: Thanks for all of the excellent feedback I’ve been getting from the Random 60 videos. These have been truly fun to make and I plan on continuing.
