Scott Beale shoots me (and I shoot him)

I met Scott Beale in the lobby here at the Bellevue Hyatt (we’re in room 1514) and he shot me interviewing Doug Rowan, former CEO of Corbis (he now invests in photographic-centric companies like ZoomAlbum and Piczo). Then I turned the camera on Scott. Hopefully we’ll do a photowalking while here in Bellevue.

Doug told us about selling computers back in the 1960s for IBM that had 600 bytes of memory that cost millions of dollars (no hard drives, either!) That’s not gigabytes. It’s not megabytes. It’s not kilobytes. It’s bytes. How far we’ve come in one lifetime is simply amazing.


The geek behind TailRank…

Here you get to meet Kevin Burton (26-minute interview), the developer behind TailRank (which competes with my favorite TechMeme).

I’ve been looking at TailRank more and more lately and it is, indeed, coming on strong. The next year is going to be interesting to watch Kevin go at it against Gabe. May the best geek win!

Kevin also gives you a good six-minute demo of TailRank’s features.
