56 people signed up for tomorrow’s meetup, we now have a place to meet, at Cooper Union, 5:30PM, thanks to Sanford Dickert. There’s still some confusion about this. I’ll call Sanford in the morning, and post instructions here. I have a backup place in mind, a restaurant, in case this falls through.
Tonight’s Knicks-Pistons game was awesome. Triple overtime. A tour de force of basketball, teamwork, and lots of comraderie among Knicks fans. The hometeam won! Last time I went to a basketball game at the Garden was 1969. Big difference is there’s no smoking these days.

Disclosure: I was not offered and have not received a Ferrari laptop with Vista installed. How does it feel? Shitty. I wonder if Microsoft has considered the cost of ill-will they create among people whose opinions they don’t consider important. I know, damned if you do if, damned if you don’t. But it does feel bad, I thought that was worth saying. Everyone who got one thought it was a good idea, apparently. (Same with the Edwards announce, btw.)

Kirstie Milner says that iTunes hasn’t updated any podcast feeds since 12/21?
John Edwards must be having second thoughts about announcing his run for the presidency tomorrow. It was a great idea, because the week between Christmas and New Years is always slow. But with a former president lying in state in Washington that not only sucks the attention away from his announcement, but also makes it look a bit in poor taste. Much better for he and Elizabeth to line up to pay their respect along with the Clintons, the Obamas and the Sharptons (still my favorite candidate).
Good evening and welcome to Scripting News, Manhattan edition. Coming to you live from the Starbucks on Seventh Avenue and 55th, across from the Carnegie Deli, where theoretically, I’m having dinner tonight with Steve Rubel.
