Today's the day I discovered Ze Frank's videoblog. It's the best news cast anywhere. So good it's revolutionary.  Permanent link to this item in the archive.

BloggerCon IV: June 23-24 in SF. We've got two venues committed now, so there will be at least two tracks. We're working on space for another track and I'm starting to put together a grid, and a list of DLs I want. If you've been a DL at a previous BloggerCon and are available to do this one, please let me know. No guarantees, but it would help to get things together more quickly, and given the closeness of the dates, time is of the essence.  Permanent link to this item in the archive.

The Monthly Coffee Notes podcast, inspired by the latest Gillmor Gang, about advertising on the Internet, Channel Dean and how to win the Presidency on the Internet. The sound quality is perfectly awful, but what else is new.  Permanent link to this item in the archive.

The secret of Rocketboom: "I learned a long time ago, when Deborah Norville did the early morning news on NBC, there's nothing sexier than a smart female with a clever smile surrounded by old corny males that are in love with her." Permanent link to this item in the archive.

A picture named mccain.jpgIn Y2K, as McCain was surging, there seemed a chance that we could have an election between two honorable men. A race between Gore and McCain would have been very good for the country, I felt then, and feel even more strongly now. Even though I'm not a Republican, and would not have voted for McCain, I urged him to embrace the Internet, and suggested he borrow an idea from a much-loved Democratic President. I even mocked up an ad for him. This might work for Edwards, if he took the time to really understand the philosophy: "Ask not what the Internet can do for you, ask what you can do for the Internet." He looks like a Kennedy, on the outside. But what does he look like on the inside? I think that's what people were asking yesterday. Permanent link to this item in the archive.
