Rolling Stone: The rise of the video blog.
Business 2.0: Video blogs, ready for prime time.
Hmmm: “I could write more from the third person and polish the posts more but you know what? I like them raw, visceral and in the first person.” Amen.
Disclaimer: I’ve received a free cell phone from Sprint, under what they call The Ambassadors Program. Sounds like something out of Lost. But it’s pretty cool. You can get music, television, and Internet access over the phone, of course it has a camera, and best of all, it does EVDO, and it works. I was able to get online today from Jing Jing, which doesn’t have wifi. So that’s the end of Dave having to hunt for wifi in airports and paying extra for it in hotels, or having to hunt for a Starbucks. I’ll be able to work in parks, if I want to. I have no idea how freeing EVDO will be, but I suspect it will be very. And you’ll probably find me writing about my Sprint phone here from time to time, and no doubt this is why they’re giving them to bloggers like me. But that’s a win-win, and I’m happy to partake.
New Flickr set: Edwards in Palo Alto.
I’m participating in a discussion in Palo Alto today with a bunch of people from the web communityin the Bay Area and Senator John Edwards. The terms of the discussion are that we’re allowed to acknowledge that we’re at this meeting, but we’re not allowed to talk about what’s discussed here.
On my last trip to NYC a fire hydrant caught my eye, I snapped a pic, and it won my heart. Someday that’s going to be on top of my world, I thought to myself, and yesterday it happened.
Then this morning Mike McGrath, whose Flickr feed I am subscribed to (great feature), posted a pic of a very fancy fire hydrant in Belmont. I prefer a more down-to-earth look, but it’s great to know there’s another fire hydrant lover out there.
If you think fire hydrants are always dull and boring, think again.
How about that!
