Attention Chicagoans: I will be speaking in your fine city at the first ever Chicago-based Green Festival. MyteammatesandI will be talking about the potential for social networking technologies to be an effective tool for advancing the green movement.
As you may have seen in my twits, sustainlane.com has launched! SustainLane allows people to review sustainable, “green,” and organic products and businesses, and I’m more excited about it than probably anything I’ve ever done before in my life (yes, I know, it’s “just a website”…this is how simple my life is). It’s going to make it easier than ever for people to find products and businesses that are socially, environmentally, and/or health conscious.
This post is going to be a disaster. I’m going to just barf it out. That’s how this all started in the first place. Remember when blogging used to be a casual thing? Then you have a few readers, and you start thinking, “I better make sure that I provide quality content. I better make sure every post is really great.” You make a few good posts, try spending hours refining a few others, and what do you get? Nothing. It’s perfection paralysis. A wise man recently told me, “done beats perfect every time.” Well, perfect and done beats done, but if you’re going for perfect, you never get done. Capicé?
I know that with whom you live is every bit as important as where you live, so Meetro’s own Vinnie and I are organizing Flatmate Meetup, at Zeitgeist Bar in San Francisco next Wednesday, August 30th. Looking through Craigslist postings just doesn’t cut it sometimes. Now you can meet potential roommies face-to-face, and have a great time!
Yes, this event does have a self-serving purpose. I’m looking for a place in San Francisco in The Mission or Hayes Valley area…with cool roommates. Tell everyone you know in San Francisco who is looking for roommates to RSVP for the Flatmate Meetup now!
