Should I relaunch NinjaTickets?

We can rebuild it, we have the technology.  I would say fuck pretty maps though lets get people really good priced tickets.  Forget indexing stubhub, I'd index the sellers that list on stubhub directly and only pull the tickets that I couldn't find from the stubhub's of the world... Ebay and CraigsList would be top priorities.

What do you think should we relaunch NinjaTickets.com?

Our Thoughts & Prayers are with Those Affected by the Events in Japan

We're deeply saddened by the recent events in Japan. The devastation to a first world country is truly shocking and humbling. The nuclear instability is an issue we pray is resolved favorably. Some experts are fearing this may become a "chain reaction" if the worst case scenario were to occur. There have been reports of foreign companies, e.g. USA, pulling out all of their people because of this perceived threat as early as the day after the quake. Those affected are in our thoughts and prayers.

I also hope that the world would make it possible to conduct a mass evacuation if needed, and that there would be enough lead time. Please give if you haven't. https://american.redcross.org/site/Donation2?idb=0&5052.donation=form1&df_id=5052

Ninja Tickets Status Update

Ninja Tickets was attacked and our programmers are recommending that we do not go live until we fix certain speed issues that make Ninja Tickets vulnerable to attack.  So for now I have to focus on other projects to make money to support the goal of Ninja Tickets. 

I still believe in the goal of Ninja Tickets and as a sports fan I am missing the service since I often used it myself.   The core vision of Ninja Tickets hasn't been executed yet -- even with the emergence of Venture Backed companies that were a facsimile of our business plan.  Hopefully with some new capital and sweat equity we can get this project rolling again and get the best price tickets to fans, period.

Jason Campbell traded to Raiders for 3rd and 4th Round Picks (rumor/very early reports)

There are multiple sources reporting that Jason Campbell (Redskins 1 year tender 3.1mm) has been traded to the Raiders for 3rd and 4th round picks. These aren't the best sources like ESPN but they are not just blogs or forum posts either, this may be all innuendo but the timing, the compensation and the trade all make perfect sense. Since it is still early it is unknown if both of these draft picks are for the 2010 or 2011 draft.

These reports make a lot of sense: the Raiders are losing faith in JaMarcus Russell and a 3rd in 2010 plus a conditional 2011 pick around the 3rd, 4th, 5th is likely to be Jason Campbell's trade value. Look for a major announcement later today or tomorrow as the ink dries, or we will see if this is all a hoax.
