Jeff Jarvis suggests we gather a database of the hotels with the best Internet access.

One of the highlights of Reboot has been getting to know Euan Semple. We have a lot of friends in common, so it’s not a surprise that we enjoyed each others’ company and sense of humor.
Also found Ted Rheingold and I have a lot in common. He lives in San Francisco and I live in Berkeley. We had this conversation in Copenhagen, and agreed it made total sense.
Susan Goodwin, executive producer of NPR’s Talk of the Nation joined us in an excited conversation about the future of public media. When she discovered I had played a big role in getting RSS going, she blurted out “I love you.” I was really flattered, the approval junkie that I am. I said “I love you too.” This could be the beginning of a beautiful friendship. Instead of sending roses, I sent a link to a podcast I did about integrating public radio with what we do.
I did an interview with Thomas, the leader of Reboot on stage this afternoon, pumped up on coffee and the great vibes of the people at the conference. This is a very different kind of group, no one is too famous or pushy, and as the conference progressed people got looser and more friendly.
Now my Europe trip enters phase 2. I haven’t really slept since the first day I got here, two nights with 3 hours sleep has left me pretty wasted. Finally I switched to a very comfortable room with a real bed. I will sleep well tonight, then it’s on to Rome, then a mini-tour of Mediterranean Italy, then home on Thursday via Milan and Amsterdam.
Jason Calacanis is a good man.
He’s been berry berry good to me.
Always a kind word. NYer. Doesn’t mind direct advice.
With that in mind, he needs to get a corporate RSS feed for Mahalo.
That he didn’t have one on opening day was a huge mistake.
Even if the feed was empty, a placeholder, they should have had something bloggers could subscribe to. That way, when they have some news, even if Bill and Steve are doing another public trip down memory lane, every little bit of Mahalo news would have a chance to climb the ladder on Techmeme.
I made the suggestion privately, he seemed to think I meant that each page should have an RSS feed (which of course it should, a la Top Ten Sources). But I was asking for something simpler and less ambitious.
I want a feed from his company that my aggregator can check every hour.
We took the subway to the concert today.
Stowe Boyd is on stage now talking about flow.
Coolest idea so far: IM Barbie.
Barbie with a cell phone!
