Where's Nate?

living large in the four-oh-eight. wicked large.


bouncin' 'round the web.

So Microsoft is working with Mr. Youth to run a student marketing rep program? With Volt as the staffing agency? What's this about RepNation as the "country's leading student rep network?" The whole model smells awfully familiar. (Thanks, Morin, for the tip.)

Farecast went beta today, launching with the Seattle and Beantown market. (Interestingly, the only two cities I would live in outside of the Bay Area. And Ann Arbor for the next twelve months.)

Apparently, Farecast has aggregated billions of pieces of data to help predict whether airfares between markets will go up or down in the next seven days. Cool. I've always been fascinated by the airline industry. Here's another speculative tool (see the early days of Priceline and the killer Farechase Yahoo! app).

Hell, any information is good information. Well, maybe.

    You would live in Boston?!? Watch out - I may hold you to that!

    Yeah...I wonder which two guys pioneered that model? ;)

    No one really knows what prompted our hero to do a Google search ("Nate Johnson Yahoo")that fateful Thursday afternoon. Perhaps just a late afternoon malaise brought on by a lack of interesting people to sue. Perhaps a genuine interest in finding out what his brother-in-law was up to. Perhaps his fingers were moved across the keyboard by the hand of God. Whatever the explanation, certainly, he could not have been prepared to actually find something, let alone this cybergem. And the question of what Nate does at Yahoo has been answered. God Bless America.
