Today is Blog Day 2005 and the 100 Posts mark is reached for Serge the Concierge: Let me suggest 5 Blogs worth reading

Today, August 31, 2005 is Blog Day 2005 which is the idea of Nir Ofir, an israeli blogger and tech person.
I found out about it by reading David Weinberber's Blog.In case you do not know David, he contributed to the seminal book, the Cluetrain Manifesto.

This Blog entry happens to be sort of a milestone for me : my 100th Blog Post.

To celebrate Blog Day, let me offer 5 Blog Suggestions:

Baristanet, the creation of Debbie Galant, now run besides Debbie by Laura Eveleth and Liz George, is defined by Jeff Jarvis as an Hyperlocal Blog. They cover in a witty spirited way the 3 towns of Montclair, Glen Ridge and Bloomfield in Essex County, New Jersey. They were featured recently on Open Source Radio.

La Fraise, an innovative way to design T-Shirts and sell them, is the creation of Patrice Cassard in St Etienne, France. I discovered them through Loic Le Meur. People can submit Designs, those who get the most votes get printed and the winning designers get 300 euros per selected design. You can purchase through the site as well. Read an interesting interview of Patrice by Shel Israel in June 2005.

Learned on Women, Andrea Learned is based in Vermont. She writes about marketing to women and is the co-author of Don't think Pink, What really makes women buy. I discovered her through Creating Customer Evangelists in Chicago.

Lenndevours, from Long Island (New York), Lenn Thompson shares with us his passion for New York State wines and food.

Url Grey Hot, A self confessed info geek, Michael Angeles (based in Brooklyn, New York) , besides working for Lucent writes on Info Systems, favorite music, cycling and other musings. One thing that appeals to me on his site is the simplicity and elegance of the design.

I hope you enjoy these suggestions and feel free to share yours with me.

New York Times article on 'Gazpacho' brought back memories of the spiciest couscous I ever had, in Cordoba, Spain

Sep 6
My taste for 'Gazpacho' enticed me to read Andrew Ferrer article 'Through Andalucia, in search of Gazpacho' in last sunday's New York Times. It brought back memories of a trip I took in the region some 15 years ago. Besides enjoying architectural highlights such as the 'Mesquita', I had the chance (or the temerity) to taste the spiciest meal I ever had in my life. It was a vegetarian couscous ordered in a neighborhood restaurant...
