I am currently between Seattle and Atlanta at 36,010 feet somewhere near the border of Montana and Wyoming. That’s a weird place to start a blog. Here’s the backstory:
You see, I’ve been considering starting a blog for a while, but just never got around to it – until today. As we boarded the 5.5 hour flight this morning, Delta gave everyone passes to try the Internet for free. Normally, I’m against being connected all the time (I will rue the day the FAA decides to allow cell phone use on planes), but today the price was right. Plus, it’s hard to deny the cool factor of using Internet as you fly.
But I digress. With free Internet and 5 hours to kill, I decided to finally start a blog. I set up the domain and hosting with 1and1.com, installed WordPress, and fired up Windows Live Writer to write. All while flying at 505 mph. And here we are.
Now for introductions. My name is Jason Kahn and I graduated from Boston University this past May with a BA in Marketing and Entrepreneurship and a minor in Computer Science. I spent the summer in Atlanta (where I’m from) preparing for an impending move to Seattle. I’m en route to a new job with Microsoft as a Program Manager on Windows Live Social Networking (where I interned last summer). My interests span everything from web design to product placement to the latest infomercial fad – this is going to be a hodgepodge.
So thanks for stopping by and I hope you find something of interest on the blog as it develops. I certainly don’t want to waste your time.
