my 100th post

This is my 100th post, and to commemorate I thought I would spruce up the place a little (I’ve added 5 new banners into the rotation) and recap what I have covered so far.

(at least) one cool thing has been wide-ranging in topics discussed. I’ve reviewed:

San Francisco restaurants: Tres Agaves, Ame, Ti Couz, Deep Sushi
Weeping Camel, Winged Migration, Mostly Martha, Infernal Affairs, Mad Hot Ballroom, Curse of the Were Rabbit, Grain in Ear
Picasa, TrueCrypt, Neat Image, Skype, Yahoo! Widgets
Assorted consumer products: Downey ball, slippers, Gillette Fusion, woven dental floss, thorlo socks, Epson scanner, The Complete New Yorker
Peninsula restaurants: Uncle Frank’s BBQ, La Bodeguita del Medio, Fiesta del Mar, Sakae Sushi, Shabuway, Tamarine, Gochi, Kaygetsu, Pizza Antica, Pancho Villa, Old Port Lobster Shack

I’ve also mentioned:

Movie directors: Ang Lee, Wong Kar Wai, Hayao Miyazaki
Websites: Shiny Shiny, Flickr, KeepVid
Music artists:
Lou Rawls, Johnny Hartman, Anton Kuerti
Beverages: Moet & Chandon, pomegranate juice, Italian wine, Turley Zin, sake
Ikea, web resources, local resources, desk chairs, Lemon Twist
Ways to discover new music: Hype Machine, Motel de Moka, KCRW, Songs Illinois, Pete Tong

Additionally, I’ve written about destinations:

Las Vegas: Bartolotta, Nobu
Santa Barbara: Inn of the Spanish Garden, Maravilla
The coast:
Pescadero, Año Nuevo

Finally, in a move I am happiest about, I have introduced guest authors to write about their own cool things. One of the reasons I started my blog was to share what I enjoy and to have my friends share what they like.

To that end, I would really appreciate it if you left a comment suggesting how you would like (at least) one cool thing to evolve over the next 100 posts. What should I concentrate on? What type of information do you find most useful? And don't be shy about adding your favorites too!

Congratulations about your 100th post. Very cool!
I like the eclectic nature of the blog. So in term of the next 100th days I personally would like to see you should stick to that format.

Thanks, Paul, for blogging to introduce us to new things in our lives. I like the categories, especially since I want to go back and search something,
but I currently have to go back month-by-month to find the post.
