I’m not really sure if it will be millions, but Google and other big players announced incentives, today, to help convince the bloggers of the world to take a moment and post about Donors Choose.

Donors Choose

They’re doing this by giving stuff away, and who doesn’t want to get a prize for doing something for the community that makes them feel good inside? I know I’d be happy with either part of that equasion, so even if you can’t afford to donate $5 (or more), post on your blog about it and Digg this post and add it to all your social bookmarks.

Further, I want to extend a personal challenge. If John Chow will donate even the minimum amount through my widget over there on the right, I’ll donate any income via adsense, etc that this blog makes this week.

Overpriced roaming dies today… For your iPhone, too.

While most of you are sleeping, a little company called Cubic Telecom out of Ireland is readying the launch of what promises to change the way we make international calls, and you can have a number in Paris (and a number of other cities), too! Try giving the ladies at the club your Paris cell phone number and see what happens.

You probably don’t know who Cubic Telecom base in Cork, Ireland. If you were an immigrant to Ireland looking for cheap international calls in the past few years, you might have known them as Tele99.com, a service that sought to “bring cheap telephony to the growing number of immigrants to Ireland”. They continued along that thinking, expanding it to the global audience. Today, they will introduce MAXRoam to the world. Not only that, but they’re going to give away an unlocked iPhone with a MAXRoam sim to one buyer of a MAXRoam today.

MaxRoam and Apple iPhone

Their site is being a bit secretive, but it appears that you can still find some information such as international rates and take a look at the phones.

Last November, I took my new bride to London and Paris for our honeymoon. I wanted to be available for emergency phone calls while there, but I’m with Verizon and I didn’t want to jump through hoops just to be available on my cell phone. I grabbed one of these phones with me. From all I’ve heard, it works wonders if you’re stuck on a mountain, but with the tall buildings of London and Paris, I found it useless. Satellite phones require a “line of site” to the satellite, just like satellite television. I really wish this launch had happened this time LAST year, but better late than never.

The U.S. Presidential election has been heating up well before we vote in 2008 and a lot more of the ~235 candidates (includes potential, announced, running, and withdrawn) listed at http://www.vote-smart.org are taking web campaigning seriously, as they should.

Because we’re talking about web campaigning, I divided the candidate’s web site’s Alexa rank by its Google Page Rank (using 10,000,000 for the Alexa rank when none was available) to come up with a simple “web score”.

Here’s the top 5:

# Candidate Google PR Alexa Rank Web Score
1 Barack Hussein Obama Jr. ******* 22,551 3,222
2 Hillary Rodham Clinton ****** 24,093 4,016
3 Ronald Ernest Paul ** 20,222 10,111
4 John Reid Edwards ****** 66,688 11,115
5 Willard Mitt Romney ****** 78,938 13,156

Obviously, Barack Obama is the web’s next SEO guru, or he’s hired a capable web marketing firm to put him on top. Will it make a difference in the upcoming election? I think so. Will it make enough of a difference? Only time will tell, but there’s still plenty of time for other candidates to take a cue from the only PR7 candidate on this list.

…and here’s the rest:

6 Candidate Google PR Alexa Rank Web Score
7 Rudolph W. Giuliani ****** 125,055 20,843
8 Maurice Robert Gravel ****** 169,985 28,331
9 John Sidney McCain III ***** 144,333 28,867
10 Fred Dalton Thompson **** 139,887 34,972
11 Joseph R. Biden Jr. ****** 222,965 37,161
12 Bill Richardson ****** 237,610 39,602
13 Samuel D. Brownback ****** 328,365 54,728
14 Michael D. Huckabee **** 219,294 54,824
15 Duncan L. Hunter ****** 397,286 66,214
16 Tom Gerald Tancredo ****** 410,933 68,489
17 Dennis J. Kucinich 159,181 159,181

Don’t forget to Digg this and link back here. I need a good page rank when I run in Election ’12.

A recent web hosting service review showed an interesting listing of web-ranked presidential candidates. The review also depicted a variety of well-round web hosting services that have achieved higher rankings in the latest ratings. Among them, lunarpages had good points for its high up time while startlogic earned more credit for its diverse service packages. The web hosting jobs were also advertised to hunt for the human capital.
