Miami Joe Does DCS in Newport Beach

By Michael Dorausch, D.C. New York raised and Miami, Florida practicing chiropractor, Dr. Joe Accurso spoke last night at the Dead Chiropractic Society (DCS) clubhouse in Newport Beach, California. The event was attended by about 100 chiropractors, chiropractic assistants, and students from around the Southern California area of Orange County and LA County. Here’s a photo from last night of Dr. Joe Accurso with Culver City practicing chiropractor, Don Trepany (he is my local chiropractor).

WordCamp San Francisco 2008 Best Eva!

By Michael Dorausch, D.C. Returned home today from the 2008 San Francisco WordCamp which took place at the Mission Bay Conference Center. This was my third WordCamp event and for me it was the best of them all. The facility was fantastic, the speakers were awesome (more detailed post coming on that later this week), bagels and coffee were great, there was an abundance of stickers and buttons, T-shirts galore, geniuses to hang out with, and I was surrounded by an incredibly open hearted community of individuals. I came home so charged up and I wasn’t expecting that. This was […]

By Michael Dorausch, D.C. I’m on a roll. Turns out the subluxated fraudbag that targeted e-mails at the classified ad community has been doing so on other web sites as well. We received an e-mail yesterday from someone that was selling a motorcycle in a US state that was contacted by the same individual e-mailing users on our classifieds site. Thanks to the participation of the community we were able to post information about the suspected fraud. While it’s frustrating for those seeking to sell items to others, it’s motivating to receive e-mails from people that have gained from reading […]
