Laurent Haug, the guy who started the LIFT conference in Geneva, invited me up to his friend’s chalet, near Villars, where he proceeded to show my camera some early 1900’s blogging that was written on the ceiling of the chalet.
What was really fun was having raclette cheese dinner with famous author Bruce Sterling. Of course I intruded on the dinner with my cell phone camera. It’s a 40 minute video, where Laurent and Pierre explain raclette. What’s really interesting is that we had people all over the world who were watching us live. At about 9:30 we sit down with Bruce Sterling, famous science fiction author.
It doesn’t get interesting until about 13 minutes when Bruce tells us the difference between a blogger and a novelist.
At 20 minutes in we discover that Yahoo has rejected Microsoft’s bid so you hear our initial opinions.
