    Hey Noah,
    I’m reading “Call to Action” right now. It’s a really good book about landing page optimization and general web design tips.

    You should check it out. I think you’ll like it.

    As much as I am happy for Ramit in getting a book out, sometimes I am baffled as well. What real experience does he have to write stuff like this? Has he ever worked within a human resource department in a large corporate setting?

    If I speak to 1000 people on “building plasma tv’s”, does it mean I am now qualified to write a book about it.

    While I enjoy reading parts of his blog over the years, I sometimes think california is full of these types of people. They dont really get ‘real’ jobs, but portray themselves to be experts in several fields.

    Sorry for the harsh remarks, but truth sometimes is a bitter pill to swallow.

    hooray for ramit’s new book :oD

    i visited spock and my initial reaction was the link was broken and i ended up on one of those domain-squatter pages where some company bought a domain to resell to someone else who might want it. i dunno why, something about the design and random-looking search text. i also don’t know what the heck the site is about. given i didn’t try very hard, but well.. you know how the internet works…

    and now i plug my own site, also open to criticism heheh… still in development :oP

    Noah, thanks for the post!

    Won’t reveal the name, why don’t you pick up the book to check it out? If you don’t think it’s useful, you can always return it. But I think you will. I also worked with two co-authors, and Chris Resto (the lead author) founded and runs MIT’s largest internship program that connects students and employers.

    Just name dropped this blog with the Director or Communications at my work. He had heard of it, but hadn’t checked it out. He likes me and my crazy ideas…so I’m sure he’s reading this response right now. **HI SCOTT!**

    I’m interested in checking this book out to see if there’s anything good we can use to recruit fraternity and sorority students to work for us, raise full financial support (translation–budget/salary) and not get paid very much to start off. The joys of working for a non-profit/ministry. **Sidenote–I LOVE my job, so it’s worth it!** Greek students are attracted to higher salary jobs (who isn’t?) so we have to be creative in our recruiting. Our latest strategy is to fly Juniors we’re considering as staff candidates to Orlando during our Greek Staff meetings at a resort. It may be working as we have 15 new staff this year.

    Nothing to plug shamelessly, other than a book I’m reading that’s interesting, I’m sure you’ve heard of it. Intriguing!

    The burrito theme comment has made me hungry…off to lunch!

    Darn you, Anand! Something else to distract me during the day. (I’ve already signed up and posted once on Good stuff!)

    Any entrepreneur interested in seeing a Data Center first hand, where most companies provide managed hosting services out of, can contact me personally for a tour of 200 Paul, in South San Fran, a 425,000 square foot facility where over 85% of NorCal’s internet traffic clears through.

    If you happen to be in Los Angeles Wednesday or Thursday next week, we also have a new 3,000 square foot facility coming online within a 50,000 square foot Data Center downtown LA.

    Either way, you can hit me at or 408-482-9953.

    Thanks Noah. I miss you 🙁
