Adam Curry is doing some video stuff that is waking up my video ipod. The bumpers alone are cool -- or whatever the kids are saying today. It's the strangest thing--this really is a Golden Age like the one I went out to Hollywood in 1970 to see, walking around on the MGM lot before they tore it down. Looking at the picture of Bill Gates and Mike Arrington, I thought: man does Bill look old and small. Scoble should be more careful who he invites to lunch; there's a major league energy bypass underway.
This week I'm way behind on my reading but so what -- first time I've felt happy being right where I am since 1973. Very few signals coming up to the cloud still, so as long as my Rojo buffer doesn't overflow I'm good with letting things bubble up from overt gestures rather than down from attention maintenance. Attention deficit disorder is a non-issue. The Curry vidcasts understand this -- it's not about holding attention, it's about respecting the connection with the subscriber.
New adds: Hugh, The Chronicle guy from CyberSalon, Snappytheclam, Lisa Stone. Man you should have seen them kicking Edgar Allen Poe.
Today I predicted Google will win the IM wars, coming from 1% share. David Yoffie said they had a long way to go, but didn't rule it out. He also said the talk he gave was off the record, but I figure that was my bet he was responding to so it's my record, not his. Cool -- we're back in the record business.
