leverageThere’s a video on the Thirty Day Challenge blog that has changed the way that I use the internet. The Challenge hasn’t even started yet and there’s already been some really good lessons. This video opened my mind to the power of using sites like SumbleUpon, Del.icio.us, Technorati, Facebook, personal blogs, and Flickr to create a lot of presence over one link. Using all of these services together increases the leverage. Taking this to the next level, there’s also introducing friends to these techniques and have them tag everything you just did.

Check out the video here.

You can imagine the viral nature of this. There’s so many services out there to help get your message out and create links back to your sites.

With the right tools it’s easy to make the entire process quick and efficient. And the effect can be profound.

Find places where there are lots of people and you’ll have an opportunity to get your message out. Remember, the more places where you link back to your site the easier it will be for people to find it. You can use leverage to make the impact even bigger.

Clouds After all the talk about how video games distort reality there seems to be a “game” or at least a flash app that is willing to contest that claim. This little Flash game is just a simulation of flying through the clouds. Despite its utter simplicity it’s actually pretty therapeutic. The speed and direction you fly through the clouds can be adjusted by holding down the left mouse button and then scrolling with the mouse. If you’ve ever wondered what it would look like to fly through the clouds al la superman or perhaps to be riding tail/nose gunner in a B-29 here’s your chance.

I recommend you give it a try, especially if you’ve had half the day I have.
