Tangentially Related to DC Round-Up!

The first in an occasional series of stuff that’s sort of, but not totally, DC area news.

The president of Freewebs.com, Shervin Pishevar, called out Yahoo! recently for cooperating with the Chinese government. Will it get Freewebs some free publicity? You’re reading this, aren’t you? But nonetheless, good on Pishevar for taking a principled stand- I know those guys would love to have access to the Chinese market. Level of relation to DC: Freewebs is based in Silver Spring, Md.

My beloved Pittsburgh Steelers visited the White House last week. I wonder if they invited Antwaan Randle El, who signed with the Washington Redskins for next season? By the way, when Randle El threw out the first pitch at that Nats game a few weeks ago, I was the one screaming “SELLOUT!” amongst all the cheers. Level of relation to DC: Antwaan Randle El and the White House are both here.

    That reminds me, I was planning on going in to meet with the Freewebs team about possible employment, but I have been so damn busy moving and settling into my new place in Silver Spring I haven’t gotten around to it yet.
