this is me talking on two cell phones minutes before getting on a plane to NYC (for HOPE 6) planning the Vloggies! the online video awards taking place in sf on nov 4, 2006 hosted by me and Dan McVicar. yes, it's gonna be funny and you will pee in your pants.
our first day at work with scoble we spent planning new shows and looking for new cameras. i liked it, except for the part where eddie and i got there at 10 minutes before 9 am! for those who know me well, this is nothing short of a miracle. from my bed to eddie's place to palo alto before 9 am is amazing. and then of course mr. and mrs. scoble walk in about 10 minutes after 9 asking, "who scheduled this meeting so early?" yes, my kind of people. so, i cant tell you what shows we're planning but i can tell you eddie and i are flying to NYC to cover HOPE for GETV! seriously, this is amazing so far. ok, it's been one day, but still.
robert scoble is my boss! eddie and i are reporting to him as "director of content" and we couldnt be happier. thanks to john furrier who emailed us the day he announced podtech funding and said "let's work together" and we are. lets see what we can do.
Great news for my former Red Herring (v2.0) colleague Katie Fehrenbacher: she's working for GigaOM! I'm so happy for her as I know how hard she's worked at RH and she's never had a byline over there. Go Katie.
one of the ideas that a french doctor understood is that after centuries of russian orthodox christianity ("orthodox" means "the right way") and decades of communism, different doesnt only mean different, it means BAD. so if you are in any way different from the rest of "community" then you are bad.
