My Blog

Hi all,

I left Tribe.net back in June 2006 to work for a company focusing on local empowerment called Backfence.com. Unfortunately our funding ended before we could spread like a virus empowering all localities and suburbs throughout America.

I'll be starting my new job heading up marketing for Cyworld, the oldest social network on the planet, beginning May 2007. They are just now launching a US version so it will be an up hill battle but one I hope we can win. Feel free to check me out there at:

us.cyworld.com/darianp

I'll try and update Tribe when I can, but this will be the best place to find me.

Cheers,

Darian

So, what do you think?

Do you wish you had one to?

Anyway, I picked this baby up on Saturday after my old-used-to-be-reliable-no-matter-how-much-I-neglected-it '93 Suzuki 500GS motorcycle died Friday night. Finally had had it with the old girl.

I need a name for the new bike (if you can't tell it is a 2005 Ducati Monster 620 Dark). Ideas?

The race itself was pretty amazing. The fact that these guys can reach speeds of over 200mph is astonishing if you've ever driven a motorcycle.

Coupled with the fact that Americans came in first and second place made for quite a day. That being said, the Laguna Seca people had a lot of problems as they just weren't prepared for 60,000 people--despite 10k of them on motorcycles.

It took us 2 hours to get there from the enterance (about 3 miles from the actual parking lot). And then, it took us 3 hourse to get out. And, they had no-one directing traffic.

Not sure I'd go there again but motorcycle races in general can be an awesome spectacle. You get to see a little of everything--spandex-mullet-wearers, tatooed-punk-rockers, middle-aged country-club couples, and even the occasional midget. Go figure.

One thing I did learn: I need a new motorcycle. Especially after not being able to get mine started Monday morn. So, now I'm on the hunt. I'll let you know how it goes.

The phrase generally implies boring, boring, boring. However, I've recently seeded a portion of our yard and am anxiously waiting to see sprouts and shoots emerge.

Yeah, it's only been a couple of days, and maybe today's bizzaro rain will help. But I can stop thinking about how my nervous glances to the backyard are completely incongruous to the phrase "it's like watching the grass grow."
