Shameless Commerce.

March 27, 2007 at 3:11 pm (Buy My Stuff, Cool Tech, Internet tech)

Even for those of us who turn our backs on corporate values and lifestyles, there comes a time to pay the rent. And it’s my turn, giving me two reasons to post today.

The ultimate horrorFirst, I am working with a really cool guy named Mark Effinger, who has developed some very powerful creativity software for the Mac and PC called ThoughtOffice. Mark has me working on a variety of web projects, ThoughtOffice included. That means income, outside of the traditional CorpCube. Oh, praise be. That alone is cause enough for a shout out.

But the other reason to post today is to test the shopping cart service we plan to use – E-junkie. Very cool stuff! Very easy to implement, and we will undoubtedly use it quite a lot in the next few months.

And now, let the testing begin! To start, I will wedge in a PayPal “Buy It Now” button for ThoughtOffice / Mac version:

Next, let’s try a slightly different button – Add to the cart:

And even a “View Cart” button, just for giggles:

There. That seems pretty slick. You can even use these E-junkie buttons on MySpace, if you’ve a mind to hawk your wares there.

Mr. BurnsWelcome to the 21st Century. I think I am going to go find something to sell, so I don’t have to go back to working for The Man.
