Frank Sinatra: “Being jilted is one of life’s most painful experiences. It takes a long time to heal a broken heart. It’s happened to all of us and never gets any easier. I understand, however, that playing one of my albums can help.”
They have his “national anthem” on YouTube, of course.
It must be MSM week at Scripting News. Yesterday, the debate with Scoble appeared in the Wall Street Journal, and today the NY Times picked up the Bubble Burst 2.0 piece. I’m planning a piece on our friends in the red states and what they taught us.
They referred to me as “the protoblogger.” Coool!
On this week’s On The Media, a segment about a group that wants to block the political broadcasts of Hezbollah in the US. (Skip to 14:00 to hear the segment.) There’s such a huge bug in their logic, they assume that if they were allowed to broadcast in the US, they would find a market. More likely they’d learn that if they want to be heard in this country, they have to learn to communication like human beings. But the would-be censors don’t trust Americans, they think they know better. This is a moderate country, the day that it’s not, no amount of censorship will save us. Better to let them broadcast, and learn first-hand that we don’t buy their hate.
Doc Searls: “We play the hands of cards life gives us.”
Amen to that. I went for a checkup on Thursday, and got some very good news. The Berkeley lifestyle is working wonders on my body. The doctor gave me all kinds of kudos. I’m playing the hand I was dealt. The numbers I got were great, for me; for you, they possibly wouldn’t be. The doctor might tell you to shape up or you’re in big trouble. Me, I’m in less trouble today than I was last year at this time. So we’re going in the right direction. I’m a happy dude. Time for a hike in the woods!
On Monday in Santa Clara, a conference for evangelists about evangelism.
