Concert Tickets… peer-to-peer style

April 28, 2007

*Click here for concert tickets site (StubHub)*
StubHub is a site that lets you buy and sell concert tickets (and sports/theatre tickets) online. Its a peer-to-peer style system a bit like e-bay (in fact was bought by E-Bay in Jan this year,) so you also get the security of a big company being involved in the buying/selling.

Quote: when you pick up the right tool in your life… you know it

April 16, 2007

This came from an interview with Morgan Freeman, talking about ‘picking up’ acting. I think this applies to physical ‘tools’ as well. For me, when I picked up a badminton racquet, it just fit… it just felt right in my hand straightaway… know what I mean 😉

Anyone care to share on this one?…

(For more on Morgan, check out his entry on IMDB.)
