I've been trying to avoid participating in this year's Gnomedex for some time now, but a few days ago things became more difficult when Chris, Ponzi, Scoble, and Maryam called me from a joy ride in Maryam's new car. (Note: trolls should already be moving down to the comment section or, more wisely, clicking off to less elitest and more page-view oriented material elsewhere on the Net.) Ponzi in particular was not happy with my stance, which in short was that I didn't want to come to the show because I have a bad attitude.
Of course, having said bad attitude hasn't prevented me from foisting my obnoxious perspective on you in a number of mediums, the most recent of which is through the highly experimental Attention Deficit Theatre--which I am currently procrastinating from editing to the point where I'm even considering releasing the jump-the-shark Gillmor Gang that festers in its holding tank in Audacity.
It is in this context that a plan may begin to take shape. If Doc Searls can be persuaded to show up, and likewise Jason Calacanis, then Arrington, who overslept and therefore blew off the first ADT session, and Dan Farber, both of whom will be in Seattle can gather to do a live ADT at lunch on that Friday at noon. Since technically this will not be a session, I get around the formatting being used this year, and Chris has just promised to screw around with random bright lights and lowering the oxygen level to accelerate the ADT experience. So we may have a deal, in which case Ponzi can relax knowing that she has finally set in motion the events that will drag Gnomedex 6 into the tailspin from which it will never recover. Don't say I didn't warn you.
