Jason pays attention

Summary: Haven't got time to get into the debate here, but Magic Mike Arrington is wrong to think Calacanis' move smacks of desperation. In fact, Jason is the first to pay for gestures, and he won't be the last.

Haven't got time to get into the debate here, but Magic Mike Arrington is wrong to think Calacanis' move smacks of desperation. In fact, Jason is the first to pay for gestures, and he won't be the last. The inversion of the network is validated, and Nick Carr is the New Net's Paul Revere. As Pete Townshend said the other day, "Meet the new boss, same as the old boss--and that boss is YOU [the user in charge].

  • Which Revere?

    Steve,

    I was all set to be flattered by your analogy, but then I realized
    that, given the context of much of your blogging, the Paul
    Revere to whom you're referring may not be that noble and far-
    sighted American patriot who led the country's response to the
    Original British Invasion but rather the front man for Paul Revere
    and the Raiders, who led America's response to the Second
    British Invasion. If it's the latter, I realized, you're dismissing me
    as a secondary figure in a big cultural movement and, indeed,
    something of a joke. Say it ain't so.

    • Ain't so

      If I meant that you would be Mark Lindsay, the real front man. I believe I saw the Raiders opening for the Beach Boys in 66 or so. When Mark went solo, I would have cried, but I was too busy smoking bana peel and getting "high" to Vanilla Fudge. Thanks for reminding What Really Matters, Nick.
