Shel Israel guessed that I wouldn’t be able to stay away from the blog until Tuesday. He was right.
Turns out I can’t host the photowalking tour on December 27th, so want to move it to January 21st. My 42nd birthday is January 18th, so that’ll be a fun way to celebrate.
I’ll share the reason that I can’t make it on the 27th soon, but next week sounds like it’s going to be an interesting one in my life, to say the least.
Sorry to everyone who made plans to be there.
OK, I’m off until Tuesday. Have a good one.
I see that Long Zheng has started CES Blogs. Not to be confused with the official CES blog.
Oh, goody, Steve Gillmor is back with “Bad Sinatra.” Love this quote: “And Gabe Rivera chimed in a few days ago in email asking what it would look like if I resurfaced. An eight-foot invisible rabbit.”
LostRemote is wondering whether to go to MacWorld or CES. Let’s see, CES is at least 10 times bigger and you’ll hear all the Apple news in almost real time anyway. Michael Gartenberg has the real answer to that: both.
James Kendrick says that a bunch of new UMPCs (mobile PCs) are expected at CES. Microsoft is one of the sponsors of the PodTech/Seagate BlogHaus, so hopefully we get a good look.
Anyway, hope there’s lots of fun stuff under your tree, see ya on Tuesday.
Remember to get your “what will you store on it” contest entries in to win a Seagate 750GB hard drive.
Disclaimer, Seagate is the founding sponsor of my show.
Anil Dash has the details (and his own thoughts) on the apology that Seagate’s CEO made yesterday — he links to the details from the author of the article.
Me? I knew it would cause rumblings inside a big company. I, like Anil, hope that Bill doesn’t lose his sense of humor. I told one guy over at Seagate that there’s a silver lining to all this: everyone will want to come to the BlogHaus to meet Bill and see if he’s going to say anything else quotable.
The other thing is: business leadership is about taking risks. Sometimes those risks pay off, other times they don’t. But I’d rather have a leader in charge who is willing to take risks instead of always “playing it safe.”
