The Scoble Train Derails

I like Robert Scoble alot. I wish I knew him better. I’ve met the guy at a variety of industry events and he’s a very personable guy. Disarmingly so. His contagious laugh is sure to put everyone at ease. And he really has a firm handle on social marketing. Just ask him about “starfish marketing” […]

I [heart] Virgin America

I have yet to fly it, but based on the buzz and the promo material, Virgin America may just be my airline of choice. Everything a geek could love, but no other airtline in the States provides: Virgin America is the first U.S. airline with mood lighting. There are 3000 MP3s onboard every flight. You […]

Movable Type 4 Review

Movable Type 4 has been out for several weeks now and I’ve been waiting for my opportunity to get it installed and a blog moved over. Initially, as demonstrated by the video I posted demonstrating the installation of the software, I planned on moving my sports podcast, Suicide Fan over, but I quickly realized that […]

Biometric Airport Security

As a traveller, one of the biggest peeves I have is waiting in line to clear security – especially if I’m running late! Personally, I think the TSA is a bit overboard with their tactics, but I do think they’ve gotten better. On several recent trips, I had bad experiences waiting for security. Flying to […]

It's About the Dialog, Stupid!

Scoble shocked us (a bit) earlier in the week when he wrote that he was quitting blogging (again). It wasn’t that he was quitting blogging that was so startling. It was the reason for it that shook me a bit: Tonight I looked over my Twitters and blogs. They are angry. Confrontational. Disturbed. Hurt. Dismayed. […]

Movable Type 4 Setup Video

I took the time this evening to setup Movable Type 4. I believe in the open source movement and though MT was much alighned for going into “paid mode” for MT3 (and alienating many, many bloggers who were loyal MT users), they swung the other direction with MT4 by opening it up. Not only is […]

Excellent Idea, Jason!

For as much crap as I’ve given Jason Calacanis over the years – ramped up most recently over “the Winer incident” at Gnomedex (I won’t link because I don’t want to focus on it and because this post is supposed to be positive), I have to give him my endorsement on his latest Mahalo idea […]

Ravens Press Policy

This morning, I was shut down in the middle of a podcast recording at Baltimore Ravens training camp. During the video, my camera was pointed at me with a tree in the background. There were no fans, players, Ravens likeness, etc. There was no reason for a shutdown. But I was because I didn’t have […]

Could you picture me in a Union?

I hate being part of an echo chamber, but the idea of a blogging union is crap. This was the concept initiated by a small group of bloggers at the Yearly Kos convention, a remarkably mundane group of left leaning dependophiles that believe socialized anything is good for business. A bloggers union will never happen. […]
