Hey all!  

I just want to say thanks for everyone who reads my blog, comments, and stays in touch with me.  I just want to announce that soon my blog will be moving to:

http://www.thelukeirvin.com/

I am going to spend the break working up a layout and getting it set up and hopefully I can get it up before the year is up.  I would get it up earlier but I do have finals coming up and need to spend as much time as I can preparing for those; school first!

I will continue posting here for now though!

Thanks for all the support!

My Inspirations and Why

Here a few of my inspirations that motivate me to want to be the best at whatever I decide to do in my life and why they are.

Donald Trump:  Everyone should know who Trump is.  Trump is the definition of excellence.  He is a clear example from a line from Jay-Z stating, I’m not a business man.  I’m a business, man.  He strives for perfection in whatever he does and he gets the job done right.  He is a great leader and is someone I would like to meet in person.

Mike Shinoda:  I am a huge Linkin Park fan.  Mike Shinoda is by far my favorite rapper/vocalist.  His lyrics seem to relate to me more than any other song writer.  Shinoda is also a great artist.  His major in college was art, more on the lines of painting.  He has moved to the blog world and is an avid blogger who posts daily.  His art work and music motivate me throughout each day.  

Kevin Rose:  I first discovered Kevin Rose on Tech TV, which I discovered from my best friend.  At the time, I didn’t know much about Kevin.  Soon after Tech TV was cancelled, Kevin released Digg.  That’s when I started following what he was up to.  Kevin has created Digg, Pounce, and Revision3.  He has put himself out there and has become very successful at it.  He is the host of the podcast show Diggnation.  I think he is a huge inspiration because he is a few years older than me but has accomplished a great deal.  He is quickly gaining more and more experience and I’m sure he will develop more great Web Apps, or anything dealing with Technology in the future.

Derek Johnson:  Derek is the Founder/CEO of Tatango.  Derek is a year older than I am.  He started working on Tatango when he was in college and decided to drop out to spend more time on it.  At the time it was called Network Text but soon changed to Tatango, soon to be Tatango, Inc.  I think it is great that someone my age is out there working hard and accomplishing their goals and dreams.  I have had the pleasure of speaking with Derek and he is an extremely nice guy and has a lot of great advice.  I look forward to future talks with Derek and hopefully getting to meet him one day.

Gary Vaynerchuk:  I have been following Gary for a few months now.  Gary is the hose of WineLibraryTV.  Gary is full of energy and loves to be social.  He is one of my biggest inspirations at the moment.  His energy and what he has to say drive me to want to be great at whatever idea I have.  Gary took over his families wine business at 17 and grew it to a multi million dollar business.  Gary is very passionate and I believe that everyone can learn something from him.

 

So there you go.  These people are great motivations to me and I would love to meet them in real life.  To be honest, I would be happy to work for any of these people.  They keep me passionate on what I love and help my ideas grow and grow.

Who is your inspiration?  Who motivates you?

UCA update

 

 

Hey all.  Here is an update of what’s going on.  I just want to throw it out there that the video that I shot yesterday, all of that information I obtained from social networks and word of mouth.  I know the media is now reporting things a lot more.  This video is information I received from UCA and CNN.com.  I’m not doing this to get hits on my site or anything.  I am trying to keep everyone informed on what’s going on.  I will be talking with the community quite a bit tonight and I’ll be posting another video or two to keep everyone updated.  That’s all I’m doing.  I don’t want anyone to get upset over these videos.  I’m not trying to scare people, we are already scared.  We just have to hang in there and stay strong and keep praying that these shooters are caught.

Thanks all.  If you know any more information please let me know.

 

Luke

 

*update*  Just watched the news at 11 and they said everything that I just did.  They are discussing it again at noon and talking with students on how they feel.  They are talking about an email, Crime alert, we received and how they feel that helped and if they feel safe.  This is interesting, I’ll try to catch this later and talk about it as well.

*update*  I know that the big issue is the other 2 shootings.  It could be people trying to get their 15 minutes of fame, but there are so many sources saying that they did happen.  It’s all by word of mouth but it doesn’t mean that it’s not true.  Hopefully by tonight we will know 100%.
