Do people like, still blog?

March passed by quickly as I was pretty busy. We booked a flight to NYC a week before March break and headed there for a week. At the same time, I ordered a Dell Mini 9 but it took 2 weeks to get to me so I couldn’t bring it along (it was for the best anyways, I didn’t want to lug around a backpack). I got it the week after I got back, and spent pretty much the week getting it the way I want it to be.

I also spent some time getting Coop Rankings integrated with InternSHARE. We got on TechCrunch, which meant being syndicated in the Washington Post. There has been a further fury of activity as the result of that promotion, and still a lot of things to work on there.

On the work side, there’s a rumor around that IBM will acquire Sun Microsystems, the funny thing is that there is absolutely no information about this at work and I actually first heard about it in an elevator in Manhattan. I also found out that the merit salary increase program is still active this year, so hopefully I’ll get a raise.

The weather has been nice this month, I’ve seen people on their bikes and even some people in flip-flops! I have no idea what happened in the world though, it doesn’t seem like anything noteworthy happened.

I’ve blogged in the past about DQ, and for those who were wondering why I was blogging about Dairy Queen, try and shift each of the letters by one; it’s actually about Coop Rankings!

I don’t really remember why I wanted to anonymously blog about CR. I’ve put my real name all over to CR but I guess I didn’t want anyone to link it back to my main blog. Well now with Facebook being the intermediary, I can’t hide anything anymore. But then, I haven’t been blogging about CR because there hasn’t been any new news. It’s been chugging along, being used by students looking for coop jobs even without much input from me.

But now there is news. In fact, it’s big news – big enough that we got on TechCrunch (although for some reason they thought we were and not Coop Rankings). Earlier this year, I was contacted by the people behind InternSHARE who also built a site to rate internships/coops and we started talks into merging the two sites. They had better integration with the rest of the web (Google, Facebook, Wikipedia, etc) but we had more content submitted by users. It’s a good match, particularly because working on Coop Rankings has not been my primary priority for awhile.

On Friday evening, we finally did all the integration work and now Coop Rankings is a part of InternSHARE!
