Keep Houston Rich

In case you haven't come across it yet, Keep Houston Rich is a blog about our fair city's diversity. From its About page:

Houston is a city rich in spirit and, thanks to the oil industry, home to plenty of millionaires. But that is not all that makes our city rich.

Houstonians are a diverse group and some of the nicest people on the planet. Who better to demonstrate the city's rich diversity than its own citizens!

I don't know where he finds them, but the posts are all video clips, some from recent Houston history and some from present day events. Some of them bring back amazing memories, like the one about Hakeem Olajuwon blocking John Starks' shot to win Game 6 of the 1994 NBA Finals - go here, scroll to the bottom of the page, and remember what fun that all was. Scroll around the site for more cool stuff like that - you could easily waste an afternoon over there. And isn't that what the Internet is all about?

The About page also touts the guy's web communications background.... and yet there is no RSS feed or even permalinks (making the site not quite a blog IMO). Maybe he'll add those at some point if the site is intended to be more than an online store.

heh. My sister is good friends with Vernon, and they had quite a launch party two weeks ago at the Peel gallery. I was skeptical when they started putting this whole thing together, but it may actually take off...
