i've been hanging out with new sf resident josh kinberg, creator of fireant and so many other cool things. mostly, he's really down to earth and easy to talk to and brilliant to the Nth degree. i'm under a verbal NDA (that means i said, "this whole evening is off the record, josh!") so i can't tell you WHY he's a genius, but he is. so much so, he may be the first businessman i'd be willing to work for as a marketing f**k.
funny how just being honest turns out well in most cases -- even this little example of a great photo. i was so tired of posing for pictures while out with some friends, that when they tried to get me into another shot, i reacted with a very dramatic, "NNNNNNNNOOOOOO!" it turned out to be everyone's favorite picture of the night. it's so nice to be captured in essence and unposed. thanks, tara hunt.
and i dont know how it kept going after that, but then when sthing i wanted to show off would happen, i would take a screenshot and flickr it. then it was all an amalgam of (for example) tara huntposting riya screenshots and people showing off mentions in msm (main stream media, oops) and that’s how it keeps going for me.
now, when i check flickr, i see so-and-so is in paris for les blogs or
so-and-so is at syndicate or so-and-so is working on tab browsing in
flock or such-and-such is having lunch with joe montana…….i know it’s
not perfect, but it’s really become an easy way for me to figure out
what people are doing and if it’s important enough then i’ll go get
more info on it, otherwise a skim of my contacts’ photos is just
david weekly's superhappydevhouse #6 was ripe with geeks for interviewing. i was so excited to see some of them that i didn't ask them anything, just gushed at their code. i'll have to really start planning ahead now so i have questions for the stars. check for episodes at geekentertainment.tv
so how much do i love doing Geek Entertainment Television? THIS MUCH. seriously, i'm still in shock about how much fun it is and how lucky i am to get to talk to some amazingly awsome people. look, here i talk to matt -- a genuinely nice and thoroughly genius man. speaking of matt, i kind of made up a word while mulling over what to call the top ten sources of geek thoughts on coding, programming and the INTERNET. (you know, the big picture.) i wrote up a list of some uber coders and called it GEEKSTARS. it was sthing that i did for my fancy-pants job at TopTenSources where i write for John Palfrey. it's not meant as a top 10 list in any way. either way, go take a looksee. oh wait, buzzword compliance? TopTenSources is a feed feed. all up in the RSS grill.
