I added songs from Mistle
I added songs from Mistle Thrush's new "Drunk With You" CD to the soozradio playlist. Check out the radio blog for the song list. Mistle Thrush had a fabulous CD release party on Friday night at the Middle East. Since my birthday was Sunday, a group of friends gathered for a birthday dinner at Roka for sushi and then we spent the rest of the evening at the CD release party/concert. Listen to soozradio to hear the band's new tunes and check out their website at MistleThrush.com.
Tomorrow's Freelance Hub lunch is full; but there are now four lunches in February that have lots of room as of right now. If you are freelancing in the Boston area (or thinking about it) this has become a worthwhile couple of hours. RSVP is required to reserve a seat. Learn more about the lunch and let me know if you have questions.

There are new additions to the soozradio playlist. Check out the radio blog for the details. Denise Cjaza wrote interesting words (that I agree with) last night about Zeldman's article at PDN-Pix. Yesterday's Freelance Hub was great fun. I will be mailing the 40 participants the attendee list and contact information later today and also updating the photo album with a few photographs. Next week's lunch on January 24th is already full; but there are many seats left for the February 21st lunch.

Michael (seen in the photo) was kind enough to pose in the Think Different jacket we're selling on eBay so I could update the listing. Of course, now the title is wrong since it has finally been worn for one minute. Ten songs were added to the soozradio playlist. Check the radio blog for details. There are
six two seats left (out of 40) for Thursday's Freelance Hub lunch. Thinking of attending the SXSW Interactive Festival March 8-12 in Austin, but not so sure what you can get out of it? Check out SXSW's guide to "Getting The Most Out Of The SXSW 2002 Interactive Festival." If you have questions about attending, let me know.

In the Fall of 1998
In the Fall of 1998 I worked at Apple Computer's Boston education sales office. During my first week, my boss gave me a black denim "Think Different" jacket. It's actually rather nice as far as company apparel goes. It's been in a closet ever since I received it so Michael put it up for sale under his eBay account. I was rather surprised to see it retails for $195 on an Apple merchandise website. Amusingly enough, as I am typing this, the highest bid is $13.50. Curious? Interested? Check out my "Think Different" jacket at eBay.
Chris Pirillo took time out
Chris Pirillo took time out of his busy, caffeinated evening to record a bunch of promos/station IDs for soozradio. One might say they are fabulous. Thanks, Chris! Want to hear what Chris recorded for soozradio? Listen! (Requires a speedyfast Internet connection such as T1, DSL or cable modem.)

I moved the soozradio news
I moved the soozradio news over to its own blog at /radio/blog. I'm not sure how well this will work seperating out two different blog pages. I asked friends, bands and soozradio listeners to create station IDs including a little promo for their website. If you'd like to participate, create an MP3 or WAV file that is up to 20 seconds. Include your name, website and "you're listening to soozradio" somewhere in the recording. And then get in touch so we can conspire.
