Fortune: "In the '80s ponytailed heartthrob Adam Curry broke ground as one of MTV's first veejays. Two decades later Curry, 40, has popped up at the intersection of blogs and radio."
Full MP3 of yesterday's interview at WGBH with Tony Kahn. Sorry the ID3 information hasn't been entered, there's a problem with iTunes, and I'm doing this from a Starbuck's. It's reasonably good stuff, probably not that new for Scripting News readers, but the quality is unprecedented. It was done in a sound studio at the radio station.
The day after the blizzard, I had lunch with Betsy Devine at Legal Seafood in Cambridge, by the Charles Hotel. We took pictures and movies. Here's Betsy dancing for the folks. And a movie of me saying funny haha.
During the Blizzard of 05 local news programs did what CNN and others did in the hurricanes last year, they sent reporters outside in the elements, telling people what it felt like to be exposed, in fear for their lives.
Rock stars on stage at Davos.
News.Com: "Norwegians might want to use a reality check before trusting directions from Microsoft's online MapPoint service."
BBC: "Voting is under way for the annual Bloggies which recognise the best blogs."
I see Derek Powazek is complaining again. Oy. You'd think for once he'd be happy, he got nominated for something really nice. I'd give my right nut to get nominated for Lifetime Achievement in weblogs. (Not really, but you get the idea.)
Anyway, I'd love to see the pointer to where I supposedly said he was brain-dead. If I said it, I apologize, that would be a really mean thing to say, and obviously not true. On the other hand, I probably said his design was brain-dead, which is an opinion, a way of saying it could stand a lot of improvement. I've done tons of brain-dead design myself, and lived to tell the story. And here are all the citations for Powazek on this blog. You can see there's a good mix of praise and criticism.
Hey man it's the 21st century. You're a star! Enjoy.
Remember when you were a kid and your mom used to say dorky things about how it didn't matter if other people liked you, because she liked you. You'd say "Oh mommmm, I know that."
Anyway, I don't get awards, but I wish I did. Given a chance I would certainly nominate this site for best technology in a weblog, if only for the cool Google-powered search, illustrated above in the post about Powazek. Did you know it uses the Google API in conjunction with the local content database to only give you the bits you're looking for. It's a big thing, and as far as I know, of all the millions of weblogs they're tracking at Technorati (thanks to weblogs.com, by the way), this is the only one that has such a cool search command.
Let's see, in addition to Best Technology in a Weblog, I would also give this site an award for Best Weblog, hands-down, and certainly put it in contention for Best Tech Weblog, and Best New Meme (podcasting).
The funny thing is, if you live long enough the dorky things that Mom used to say start meaning more.
