This post’s topic was intentionally delayed. 1. We thought it reasonable to wait out the food-laden, financially draining, emotion coin flipping, holiday season. (This Bulletin also serves as notice that the holiday season is, in fact, over.) 2. Suggestions during the holidays, however well-intentioned, are just unfair. 3. Well, it wasn’t so much for the second reason as it makes no practical sense to pile on more bright ideas until one’s had time to settle down and make a calm assessment. TwentyTen has already definitely declared itself as the “Change, Already” year. (Divorce attorneys, and, conversely reasonable, marriage counselors, hold high hopes for this year.) This Bulletin presents several top sites for getting rid of old stuff (for profit) and getting new stuff (for free).
Sell Your Old Cell: I was gifted a new iPhone. I sent in my old one and received $100 (and, they paid for the shipping). http://www.ibuyphones.com/
Upgrading Your Business Computer Equipment? Get Rid of the Old Stuff for $$: This company has agents to assist you in just about any location in the U.S. http://www.spintradeexchange.com/
Free Windows Data Wiping Tool: Your IT person should be able to handle the office computers. No reason for him/her to have access to your personal laptop or home pc. This great free app is easy to use, effective and performs at Department of Defense standards. FreeEraser.
(Specific to NYC) Time to update the cubicles: OfficeFurnitureNYC generally buys in quantities of 50 cubicles or more but they do have a small business listing (a worthy addition to CraigsList or other local posting boards). In their own words, “This is a list of New York, New Jersey and Pennsylvania firms who have used office furniture and small NGO’s and Non-Profit organizations that are looking for furniture donations. OfficeFurnitureNYC.
For the young lawyer (or journalist) -to- be in the family: One of the most interesting internships we’ve come across for those interested in the freedom of the press and media law. Notice: Application deadline is 2/01/2010. The Reporters Committe for Freedom of the Press. Impressive steering committee, representing every major news source in America, from the NYT, WSJ, The Atlantic, HuffPo, Politico… Great free FOI and decision recaps in current national major cases source, too. Home Page for RCFP.
Divorce Attorneys: Lawyers. (Of course there’s a disclaimer. Please also see our similar below.)
Marriage Counselors: Therapy. (Search for a certified counselor 1 – 100 miles from any zip code. Distance preference is not indicative of one’s marital commitment.)
Our disclaimer: We have nothing to do with any of the above suggested sites, organizations, entities… We’re not at all responsible for their services, recommendations or results.
BNI Operatives: Street smart: Web savvy; New year happy.
As always, stay safe.
