One of the founders of JibJab hosted a session at Gnomedex last weekend. He discussed the organic growth of the company and how they avoided VC funding. They survived the dotcom bust and used gorilla marketing to stay alive through the slim years. Their biggest success to date is This Land and it did 80 million online views and another 590 million views offline in one month.

They are now focused on a "Long Tail" approach to the world of content, hit based models just don't scale from a revenue standpoint. They are also challenged by production cycles that only allow them to produce one piece of content a month. Its hard to produce daily content and especially hard to do it well. They aim for highly topical, relevant and mass market appeal.

Ok, enough Web 2.0 rhetoric check out Paris and me. I would love it if any of you produce one after seeing mine please leave a link here in my blog so we can all enjoy it. Ron Powell, Kym Wootton, Katie Fabiszak? I'll be watching for yours.

Sending email is cheap to send and expensive to read and delete. All of us spend 5-10 minutes every day clearing unwanted email from our in boxes thats almost 43 hours a year cleaning up after someone else's transgressions.

Maybe the economics of spam should resemble gasoline, spammers would pay by the gallon or in this case the character the upside is that even though some people would still send it we could scan it faster and it would look something like this.

Every once and a while you find hidden gems while traveling. The more time I spend in Seattle the more I seem to find. Saturday night I visited the Pike Street Market area, I was on a quest to locate a shop that I have come to love from a distance. My good friend Andreas recently introduced me to the wonders of Uli's Famous Sausage. In his words "its better than any sausage he can find in Germany". We recently had Uli's shipped to Colorado so Andreas and my family could enjoy a feast. I highly recommend Uli's its well worth the shipping fee.



After wondering around the market I stumbled on the Pike Place Bar and Grill it overlooks Uli's and the famous neon sign at the market. Have you ever visited a restaurant thats decor and vibe over shadowed the food? Thats what Pike Place is all about, Boston and the Doors on the jukebox, a little dusty, a little worn out, great service, fantastic chowder, my favorite bourbon and a $19 rib-eye. Put Pike Place Bar and Grill on your list when you visit.
