It’s a man’s world apparently…



Best Store Window Ever, originally uploaded by jnoriko.

So today I happen to be in Sacramento for work. Immediately I was stoked to go record shopping at one of my favourite record stores – Phono Select. After I got out of my meeting, I cruised over there to really dig in the crates. Normally when I go, I have Dr J or family members in tow. They get bored when I go through each section looking for stuff. Dr J is one of the nicest men ever, not only did he give me health insurance, but he’ll hold my records for me so it’s easier to browse. That’s love folks.

Anyhow, today I was in there and this couple walks in. They were a bit older than me, and the man was pretty dismissive of his female companion. Clearly she was bored within moments of walking in there and he was trying to get her out of his hair so he could browse in peace. Totally understandable. But then he had to take this totally dismissive, chauvinist tone about the whole thing. “Let me do boy stuff.”

If there was ever a time for the sound of a needle scratching off a piece of vinyl that was it. I couldn’t stop myself from looking up and giving them guy a death glare. Seriously. I might not be the cute yuppie girl he was with, but I’m totally a woman and I’m the vinyl collector geek in my relationship. I don’t even know how record buying is supposed to be gender based, other than perhaps selective affirmation bias and boys being encouraged to buy and spin vinyl. To each their own… but seriously… record collectors aren’t just dudes. Don’t act like I’m army candy.

    Hi Jan,I feel that Larry page and other fellow had no idea how PageRank comes up ealtcxy Then they made up solution later on with the solutions they had. That’s how Newton did when another guy find out square root of 2, nah?So as bloggers, I guess, understanding algorithm is kinda unnecessary thing as long as we don’t control how it happens or not contributed to search algorithm. Also I don’t think Google send us full algorithm as competitors can easily copy it down. However as they say, Google uses 200+ search signals by now to determine PageRank and algorithm change as more factors gets in the way. Also it depends on the capability of the crawling of Google bots.Anyway should we create content for bots? First for readers then for bots ’cause they help people find our content on the web. Depending on Google PageRank is a good thing for our imagination. What if Bing comes up and rule the search? We go change all for Bing’s PageRank? Cheers Mayura recently posted:
