Great SEO people, Thomas aka Thos003

Did you ever wanted to get a black shirt with your quote on it just before a conference for you to wear? Just make sure you get on the good side of Thomas, aka Thos003. First time you meet, he will tell you he is killing bugs. No, not the bugs in software, but rather the real deal. Thomas is the SEO for a pest control company, Bulwark Extermination.

A couple of weeks ago, I was in Florida for the BlueGlass conference in Fort Lauderdale. Thomas made me a shirt with a quote I used in a panel on SMX advanced in-house session. A few weeks after the SMX advanced in Seattle, Thomas asked me what the acronym was I used on the board. I figured he wanted to use it in some internal presentation, so I shared it on Twitter:

Thomas: @TheNextCorner What was that acronym you used for #SEO priorities?

Me: @Thos003 LUMPS > Links, URL's, Meta Tags, Page Content & Elements, Sitemaps

Little did I know he would had something else in mind; Thomas brought to Florida my own quote printed on a t-shirt! Check this out:

To show off in the office, I put on the t-shirt the  first day I got back from Florida. Posing in front of the eBay logo:

2010 Equinox, Summer turns into Fall

And before you knew it, the summer is over. The 2010 September Equinox falls on 23 September 03.09. The Fall Equinox is the moment when the night and day span exactly the same amount of hours.

An equinox occurs twice a year, when the tilt of the Earth's axis is inclined neither away from nor towards the Sun, the center of the Sun being in the same plane as the Earth's equator. The term equinox can also be used in a broader sense, meaning the date when such a passage happens….An equinox happens each year at two specific moments in time (rather than two whole days), when there is a location on the Earth's equator where the center of the Sun can be observed to be vertically overhead (in astronomical terms, the subsolar point), occurring around March 20/21 and September 22/23 each year….On a day of the equinox, the center of the Sun spends a roughly equal amount of time above and below the horizon at every location on the Earth, night and day being of roughly the same length.

If you ever have the chance, go check out the Equinox in Chichen Itza.

Happy Fathers Day 2010

For two weeks my daughter Jools, 3.5 years old, has kept a special fathers day secret. She made the card she gave to me this morning herself at pre-school. Summer break at school started 2 weeks ago, so the card has been made before the break started.

Happy fathers day to all daddies!
