Adam Medros: "I'm a grad student at Harvard Business School and I think the only blogger on campus."
This is not an ad for Diet Coke. They didn't pay me for a product placement. There is no requirement that you read this text. Feel free to skip to the next item. I placed the Diet Coke logo here because I like their product. I used to be a Diet Pepsi drinker. Then I started hanging out with my brother last summer when I got sick. He was drinking Diet Coke, so I decided to try it, and I liked it. Next time I went to the store I bought a six-pack. Since then I really don't care for the taste of Diet Pepsi. Oddly enough, my brother flipped too, now he drinks Diet Pepsi. So the market share of the two leading diet colas remains unchanged.

Paolo and JY comment on Dan Bricklin's SMBmeta. Several people at last night's dinner said they found the idea interesting.
A directory of HipLogs. They're just getting started. Photos of people doing dorky things. What else is there?
Great great blogger's dinner last night. Tara Sue was there. I thought she'd be a skinny North Carolina Republican type, but she's not like that at all. I told her she's a hippie chick and she laughed (while denying it). She's very earthy and happy person, really sweet. Spent a bunch of time talking with Evan Williams about blogging APIs and the blogspot outage in China. Talked with Gretchen Pirillo about acting in San Francisco. Raines Cohen came in his wonderful electric car. He's an amazing guy (wish I had a picture of the car). After dinner we went to a bar on 24th St that has an outdoor patio that we took over, and hung out there for a two-three hours. Chris Pirillo has a list of the weblogs that were in attendence. Everyone had a good time. Gotta do it again.
And lest I forget, Simon Fell has black hair!
