Silicon Valley Watch: Scoble is leaving MicrosoftPermanent link to this item in the archive.

Marc Canter and Amber MacArthur thought they were posing for a picture, but I was actually taking a movie. Pretty funny!  Permanent link to this item in the archive.

There are four T1 lines coming into the VloggerCon building, which is why there's good bandwidth. Remember, this is a video blogging conference.  Permanent link to this item in the archive.

Rex Hammock on John Dvorak: "He's a troll." Permanent link to this item in the archive.

The Dvorak video has been Slashdotted and Dug.  Permanent link to this item in the archive.

DefectiveByDesign.org is the "campaign to eliminate DRM." Permanent link to this item in the archive.

I just met a radio guy named John Hammond, who is also a famous pianist. He has a radio show on 1550 AM in SF, but he lives in New York. Grew up in Berkeley on Euclid Ave.  Permanent link to this item in the archive.

Apparently the invites to Foo Camp are going out. Someone just asked me what I think of it. Here's what I think -- there's a big difference between a chaotic disorganized event like VloggerCon, that's open to everyone; and an invite-only event where only people who don't offend a couple of control oriented people. This one is noisy and creative. People at Foo Camp waste a ton of energy congratulating each other that they got the invite. But nothing useful actually comes out of the invite-only event, because the most creative people aren't there. It's practically algorithmic.  Permanent link to this item in the archive.

A picture named vlogsmall.jpgI'm at the back of the main ballroom at VloggerCon in SF. If you're here, the people on stage are asking the audience for questions after they did presentations. Folks, that is not an unconference. Please. No audience, and don't ask questions, say things, tell stories. Most of the smarts are in the room not on the stage. If you're here come by and say hello. I'm wearing a black hat and a black polo shirt. And geez, people are lining up at a microphone and making speeches. There should be a session here about what an unconference is. Maybe we need to do one of those at BloggerCon. (And there's a dull roar from the hallway conversation.) Permanent link to this item in the archive.

Pictures from last night's Vloggercon party. Permanent link to this item in the archive.

Steve Garfield, one of the organizers of Vloggercon. Permanent link to this item in the archive.

Download the Dvorak movie via BitTorrent. My server was getting slammed, this method is so much more rational.  Permanent link to this item in the archive.

I don't think I've ever seen a torrent with this many seeds.  Permanent link to this item in the archive.

I got a report from Jeff Powell that he is having trouble downloading the Dvorak movie via BitTorrent. I see a lot of people are successfully downloading it, and I was able to myself (using Azureus on a Mac). If you have any clues, please post a comment here. (However, there's not much I can change because Amazon is hosting the Torrent.) Permanent link to this item in the archive.
