First–and Last–Guy’s Blog’s Loop’s Photo Winners

Trophy Much to my delight, dozens of you have posted your picture to my loop of blog readers. In your honor, I am presenting the first and last “Guy’s Blog’s Loop’s Photo Winners.” (You know I love top ten lists, but I couldn’t reduce the number of categories.) I didn’t plan to select “winners” when I asked people to join the loop, but I just enjoyed the photos so much.

You know who you are: Send me your address, and I’ll send you an autographed copy of The Art of the Start. (You see how little FilmLoop really knows about your identity?)

    Great stuff, though it would be nice if there was a way to search for photos by name so that we could see all the pics you are referring to without having to scroll through the whole loop looking for the person.

    But I want you to scroll…

    great stuff! i can think of many ways to use this tool. Do we need a license to use it in conjunction with the community on my web site?
    an aside:
    There were several picture which when I clicked on one image, another came up in the pop-up window.
    Two of these were images which were repeated in the loop, showing2 or 3 consecutive identical images , and the pop-up windows each had separate seemingly unrelated images. (see images 77 and 78 on the loop).
    Was this intentional, or a glitch?
    All the best,

    Since the photos can be rearranged by the creator… you think you can put the above 23 in the front?
    Trust me, I’m scrolling through them all… but we don’t have enough time to mouse over each one in hopes that they put their name in the correct location.

    Looks like your readers are almost men.
    hmmm…could you add tags, like: ‘single’, ‘looking for a job’ etc.
    Must try on my blog.

    I think I’d prefer it more if the client crashed less.

    And the winners are…

    Yesterday, while waiting for my Broncos game to start (of course, only for them to be pulverized by Pittsburgh), I logged on and skimmed through my RSS feeds, landing on Guy Kawasaki’s post about his blog’s Loop. Looked pretty cool.

    I downloaded the program, but it’s not easy to find out who’s who in each picture.

    Can you please link the entries to the individual photos? The description really make me want to see them, but I don’t want to spend the time to install the program and search through the loops.

    I was thrilled to see I won “Best use of Rubber Bands”
    I’d like to take this moment to thank my 8 year young neice, without whom this wouldn’t have been possible. I will certainly share my prize with her; it will definately come in handy for a 2nd grader.

    I’m so excited to be one of the winners for cutest couple. To let you know, I downloaded FilmLoop when I first saw it so that my mom has baby pics on the fly.
    I’ve just begun to read your books and because all of this customer evangelism is new to me, it has changed my life in such a positive way. We drove an hour last night to go to the only Apple store in our area and the bug is planted. We are ready to switch! I just read “Selling the Dream” and even though it may be an older book it’s fabulous and easy to understand for someone that knew nothing about Marketing.
    I love your blog and it’s cool that I am one of the few women readers. My husband and I are first generation entrepreneurs and are doing to change the life of our baby girl. Neither side of our families have owned their own businesses but we believe that with hard work, determination and the grace of God, we can do it.
    Thanks for being so candid and forthright with your knowledge and expertise. Be blessed!

    I checked the first scroll. There were 21 identifiable women – skiing shots were ever difficult to classify. The majority of the women appeared in the pictures in secondary roles.
    57 of the men had beards. Depending on your definition of overweight many of your readers need to diet.
    Conclusion: Readers of the Kawasaki blog – which I love to little bits – are predominantly tubby, bearded, white American males. Bit sad, that.
