What happens to Interns on Wall St.

Have you always wanted to be like Gordon Gekko?

Michael Douglas as an douc...I mean, Gordon Gekko

Inspired by the current shenanigans on Wall St.? What you can achieve as an investment banker these days is impressive:

-Suck at your job

-Contribute to the economic collapse of an entire nation

-Be hated by everyone you know while doing “business” on your gold-rimmed throne (a la former Merrill Lynch CEO Jon Thain)

-Make stupid amounts of money. Recessions are tough on everyone. Except you! Keep them bonuses a’comin’!

Pure gold.

Pure gold.

The only drawback? You may be left for dead atop the Charging Bull on Wall St.:

Intern left for dead on Charging Bull.

You gotta start somewhere. Read about the drunk/dead/gored/soon-to-be-filthy-rich-anyway-so-don’t-feel-bad-for-him Intern over at Dealbreaker or submit your entry for “Caption Contest Friday: Anyone missing an Intern?

Our personal fav: “Getting gored is the new killing it.” Nice.

Technorati

Written by admin. Filed under Other. No comments.

Anyone heard of Technorati? While the name clearly alludes to the Illuminati — a super-sketchy cult/secret society meme — they’re slightly less terrifying, although their power to make or break you is eerily similar (where “you” = “a website”).

Think of Technorati as the Internet’s version of Big Brother (the bad one, no…the non-reality TV bad one). They’re enlightened…oh wait! Zow! “Illuminati” is Latin for enlightened! Doodz0rz this totally is coming together.

Technorati: Modern iteration of Illuminati? Possibly...

Anyway, they’ve got a big fancy list of the most popular blogs on their site. The Top 100 blogs, in fact.

A high rating on Technorati is a good thing. Technorati is a good thing. Provided you can accept that selling your soul for money and prominence is a good thing.

To get your site listed and tracked, so you need to sign up on their site and post a code they give you on your site.

Here’s to a good thing. (Or, the damnation of our soul and dignity for all time. Cheers!)
