A typical day at old Traffic Exchange Live, with illustration provided by the  Previous Most Famous Marker on the Internet (R.I.P. – it’s since been replaced per Jon):


  • POST TITLE: Just In Time For Valentine’s Day, Cupid Is In The Air At Traffic Exchange Live
  • DATE: February 3rd, 2010
  • HISTORIC FACT: Tim Linden had an idea for ILoveHits that was discussed in length among everyone at TE Live that day, which eventually resulted in ILH’s Bracket Surfing.
  • JON OLSON FACT(S): We watched Jon open his mail live on cam. He worked out for 30 minutes the night before instead of just 20. Jon also sang a song about William Brant.
  • FUN FACT: Tim has a trick coin that never loses (Tim said he and Jon would have to flip a coin to see whether their then-programmer, Austin, would work for ILH or StartXchange that day).
  • WEIRD DISCUSSION TOPIC: Talk about banks, going to banks, robbing banks, etc. Tim told Jon he could get a good workout if he robbed a bank and had to run from the SWAT team. (groan…)
  • ALSO: Jon banned a UStream user who was kidding around with John Guanzon and calling him “Wonton”, thinking dude was a troll. Turned out to be a friend of John’s from high school.
  • QUOTE OF THE DAY: “TE Live: Bring Your Friends, We’ll Ban ‘Em.” – Lynn M
