I just started blogging for the Web Analytics Association blog. My first post Communicating analytics results went up January 21 (but I forgot to mention it).
My favourite new ad campaign? Diamond Shreddies (for those who don’t eat Shreddies, they are square and haven’t changed in years). Would love to hear if they are tracking recall in stores when people come in and ask if “where are the diamond shreddies”.
Forget the tripod, this $1 image stabilizer works like a charm.
Recording a kick-ass podcast between two macs. It’s that easy.
Top Canadian web rankings from comScore and only one financial institution in the mix TD Bank Financial Group. I’d be concerned if I was RBC or one of the other big 5 banks. TD seems to be winning the reach game.

Fluid is a nice new Mac app that gets your favourite webapps a home on your Mac OS X Leopard Desktop.

Scoop on the soon-to-be-released Rubix from IndexTools. Sounds great. Can bring in external data, is fast, can segment across multiple dimensions and sounds like ease-of-use is well considered. Looking forward to viewing this. All bow before the ‘Dennis’.
UI Patterns is another interesting collection of user interface design patterns.
Two seminars worth attending: Web Form Design Best Practices with Luke Wroblewski (March 15) and Site Search Analytics for a Better User Experience with Lou Rosenfeld (March 18).
