Know Cancer Bracelet: awesome swag

Friday, July 31st, 2009

Know Cancer is an online social community for individuals affected by cancer. Organized by a friend I met in the social media world and a kid I’ve known almost all my life, it’s pretty powerful to see this community and how it flourishes.

They have a great site, and I highly recommend that you check it out.

They also have some super amazing homemade schwag, a bracelet. I’ve been told that they had other colors too, but I happen to like blue.

(Can you tell that P&S photography isn’t my strong suit?)

In any event, I suggest you look at this community if only to see how beautiful it is — they did a great job. But signing up and being part of the conversation is a good thing to do as well.

Meetup Pin

Meetup is a web service that lets you find local area meetups or to create one yourself. There are thousands of networking opportunities for those interested in getting to know local people in just about any topic.

Meetup also has maintained its presence at a variety of trade shows (cmon, why wouldn’t Meetup attend a local meetup?) and at one of those, I found myself the owner of a brand new Meetup pin:

World of Warcraft Game Fuel by Mountain Dew

Friday, July 24th, 2009

Mountain Dew Voltage is one of my favorite soft drinks ever, and it’s set a precedent. I’m even more excited to try the Mountain Dew/World of Warcraft Game Fuel flavors, as featured below:

They are Alliance Blue and Horde Red — sweeeeeeeeeeeet! They’re in limited editions too, so you might want to pick them up soon.

Also, in honor of the re-release of the two flavors, they are running a promotion where you can win tons of prizes, including an Alienware laptop, which is awesome. You can use this link to sign up and get 25 tokens daily to kick-start your quest to win.

I love the specially flavored Mountain Dews. Do you? What do you think about these two?
