An awkward meeting between Twitter founder Biz Stone and Mark Zuckerberg of Facebook.An awkward meeting between Twitter founder Biz Stone and Mark Zuckerberg of Facebook.

The Next Web posts an interesting article regarding a meeting between the two heads of the socially charged companies that happened some time around November 2008. It is rumored that this is about the time that Facebook was thinking of acquiring Twitter for sum of about $500 million. I smell a Social Network sequel or at the very least an Odd Couple-esque sitcom.

Thirteen small things to simplify your work day.Thirteen small things to simplify your work day.

Some top Google executives just do 5-minute meetings — anyone who attends these meetings had better be prepared, and concise. If you can get out of meetings and just get the notes, or find an alternative way to communicate, it could save you hours per week.

Daily Grind: Relaxed

Name: Vin (aka jim lookalike)
How Vin feels today: Relaxed @ 2:16:00 PM
What Vin really wants today: Breathe easier now that meetings went semi-well this morning. Make time for a haircut this weekend so people can stop saying I look like Jim from The Office (keep the smug attitude in check though).

Music Stuck in Head: Yesterday / Guns n' Roses
Take a stroll down memory lane and watch the video on YouTube. I remember someone telling me that they used a stand-in for Slash at the time. You be the judge.

Stuff to do today:

  • Stop making baseless accusations about Slash's appearance in certain GnR videos
  • Dig up old tapes of college band playing a calypso version of Sweet Child of Mine
  • On second thought, keep tapes buried and hope they are never found again
  • Note that this may be the first week in a long time where a daily grind entry has been posted every day for the span of the week
  • But the week ain't over yet
