I gotta get into Second Life. I hear Wells Fargo owns an entire island there to teach people about their bank.
I wonder if I charged a building or two to my corporate card would that get approved? Hmmm.
Anyway, just saw that Eric Rice is doing a live podcast (don’t we call that audio streaming?) and is gonna be having a party inside of Second Life on New Years’ Eve. I will have to try to join him. I hear Maryam is dragging me amongst friends’ houses in Silicon Valley. Hey, Maryam, only take me to the ones who have wifi!
Ahh, it’s a few days before CES and a few more days before MacWorld and the natives are getting restless. So, what do they do? Hold a “Steve Jobs movie poster contest” of course!
Everyone expects Microsoft, Yahoo, and Google to come out with new calendar initiatives in 2006, but I sat with Narendra Rocherolle who told me about his company’s new product that’s coming out (named 30 Boxes). You can sign up to get on a beta. Should start hitting the Web in the next month or so. I’ve signed up. The way he described it it’ll be a lot more useful for family-style calendars than anything out there. We’ll see. Don’t know who Narendra is? He was CEO of Webshots that got sold to CNET.
