Amazon CTO, blog evangelist?

Wait a second. Is this the same Werner Vogels who “ripped us a new one” when we were doing our blogging book reading at Amazon earlier this year? (quote from Slashdot).

It is! And he’s talking about how blogging is helping a politician in the Dutch election get his message out.

So, that’s another thing I’m thankful for: more blog evangelism and yet another turned skeptic. We interviewed 188 businesses for our book (which is now being used by Shel to write his next book on Global Neighborhoods), which is still selling very well according to Amazon.

I’m thankful for Amazon. I wonder if this will mean more Amazon blogs?


Of course not everyone loves the ScobleShow…

Ahh, I missed the 1938 Media video review of ScobleShow. Short version? It wasn’t liked. He didn’t like anything. Not one thing? I love how he says “they” when referring to my video and audio work. It made me crack up. 2:30 YouTube video.

And with that, I’m outta here for Thanksgiving.

Thank you to everyone who helped me in the past year. It’s been quite a year already and I couldn’t have gotten 45 interviews without a lot of people’s help.

Have a great Thanksgiving.
