Weâ??re celebrating another 24 hours of Flickr on Friday, August 8, 2008!

Investing in Foreclosures Seminar Today

Blue Coast Brings You the Digs

What’s Happening in the Foreclosure Market Today

Join us today for a LIVE WEBINAR at 2:00 pm EST, 11:00 am PDT, 7:00 pm GMT to learn how short sales can shape your investment business and portfolios this year:

Investors making money in today’s real estate market have no doubt had to change the way they do business. So what are many people doing to make money now? It’s called the short sale: the sale of real property where the fair market sale price is less than the loan balance, and is negotiated directly with the lender.


It is estimated that by the year 2010, one in every 40 houses in North America will be short sale properties. Further, Housing Predictor has extended its foreclosure forecast into 2011 nearly doubling its original prediction (now estimated to be 3 million). The opportunity is here – now what?

Learn more about the pre-foreclosure, foreclosure, and short-sale process in today’s webinar, by clicking here:

Happy Investing,

The Blue Coast Team

SanFran MusicTech Summit

The next SanFran MusicTech Summit, which will
take place on Monday, October 20th, at the Hotel Kabuki in San Francisco.
🙂 More info can be found at

We plan to make this even better than the last Summit, which was even
better than the first phenomenal one, and we’ve got some tricks up our
sleeves to attempt to make this a reality. 🙂

The SanFran MusicTech Summit brings together the leading technologists,
musicians, entrepreneurs, reporters, investors, service providers, artist
organizations; many of the folks who are leading the way at the
convergence of culture and commerce. The Summit has been resonating well
both with the leaders of the music/internet/technology movement from the
San Francisco Bay Area who are tired of the effort and expense of flying a
small part of their teams to places such as Austin, Cannes, and Berlin,
who have been begging for a local event such as this so that the market
will come to them. :-), as well as the out of town influencers who are
thrilled to be able to meet the depth of Bay Area talent, all in one
place, in a location they love to visit. Since posting the event to
Facebook on Monday ,
close to 100 folks have already RSVP’d that they’re going to make it, and
we are thrilled at the ticket sales so far. 🙂 The earliest bird highly
discounted pricing ends next Friday.

Initial speakers include folks like Dave Allen Nemo Designs / Pampelmoose
Blog and Label / Ex-Gang of Four Bass Player, Bob Heyman – Mediasmith,
Chief Search Officer, Steve Jang – imeem, CMO & Head of Business
Development, Ethan Kaplan – Warner Bros Records, VP of Technology, Rachel
Masters – Ning, VP of Strategic Relationships, Jack Moffit – Speeqe, CEO /
Chesspark, CEO & Lead Developer / IceCast Streaming Media Server, Creator
/ Xiph Foundation, Co-Founder, Sean O’Connell – Music Allies, Founder &
CEO, Dave Ulmer – Motorola, Sr. Director Multimedia Products and Services,
Carnet William – Sprout, Co-Founder & CEO, Brian Zisk – SanFran MusicTech
Summit, Executive Producer / Future of Music Coalition, Technologies
Director, and we’ll be updating the site soon with many more panelists.

So what is the secret sauce? Besides the focus on San Francisco and a
fabulous venue, we go for the most interesting and influential folks in
the field who have a great overview on all sides of the issue, whom are
known to be open to new people and views, and who are straightforward and
willing to call bullshit when they see it, especially, if they are
involved in it. 😉 Our aim is to get panelists talking about what is
interesting to them, as that will always be of interest to the high level
folks in the audience, and then allow plenty of time structured to be
conducive for dealmaking and meeting friends, old and yet to have been
met. We’ll also be repeating our elevator pitch session, where a whole
bunch of interesting companies can let others know what they’re up to, as
long as it can be done in 60 seconds or less.

Great examples of the panels can now be found on the video player at , and more will be added shortly. If we
get a video sponsor for the next Summit, we’ll do this much more
professionally next time.

Any inquiries, comments, questions, feel free to ask, either here, or

All the best, and hope very much to see you there…

Best Buy To Start selling music instruments

Probably long overdue, but now Best Buy is selling musical instruments.

From the low end to mid range, this is a good move for Best Buy. More of a natural progression considering the popularity of RockBand and Guitar Hero, why not sell the real instruments for serious musicians.

There are hundreds if not thousands of rehearsal studios(see this comprehensive rehearsal studio directory), some of which are either working on or are now offering RockBand and Guitar Hero events and competitions.

Guitar Center and Sam Ash and Musicians Friend will have to step it up a notch to compete against this Best Buy. You can see some of what Best Buy will be selling online at:

David’s Cookies

David’s Cookies

In 1979, David Liederman was a top chef in New York City. At the time, boutique cookie shops along the West Coast were everywhere and the smell of fresh baked, chocolate chip cookies could be smelled for miles.

Chef David had the brilliant idea to bring this California trend back East, and the first David’s Cookies store was born in the heart of Manhattan. Passers by quickly fell in love with his funny shaped cookies, which were always oven fresh and loaded with heaping chunks (not chips) of chocolate. Chef David, trained in the finest French culinary academies, began mixing and tasting; using only the finest, all natural, ingredients – pure vanilla, butter, Swiss chocolate and whole nuts, he achieved his anticipated result; a uniquely delicious cookie that looked and tasted “just like mamma made!”

Fresh Baked Cookies
David’s is the place to find delicious, soft chocolate chip cookies you don’t have to bake. Forget small chips, our recipes include large chunks of gooey Hershey’s ® chocolate for a home-made taste. Made from a clever mixture of wholesome milk, eggs & creamy butter, each cookie is oven-fresh & golden brown to perfection with top quality ingredients. Save time from making your own dough from scratch and pick up a batch of a dozen David’s Cookies today for the whole family. Flavors include Chocolate Chunk, Peanut Butter, Oatmeal Raisin and more. They’re great for birthday parties and best served fresh.
