Fanmail or Maybe Dido Wasn’t A Good Idea

March 26, 2006

Char,

All Video Weekend SUCKED!!

The videos you chose were lame. Not just the music videos but ALL of them. They were all old and seen a million times in a dozen of other places.

I thought you were cutting edge. You are dull. First Cowboy of Jack Of All Blogs finds Jesus and now Chartreuse, who writes about new media and the sex pistols ends his all video weekend with Dido. Fucking DIDO!!!! How whitebread, middle of the road, safe can you get.

All your new readers will never understand how great this site USED to be.

Come back Chartreuse!

Danah Explains Online Communities

March 18, 2006

Fred Wilson of A VC fame, links to a must read article by  Danah Boyd‘s eTech talk. It’s titled “G/localization: When Global Information and Local Interaction Collide”  

Don’t let the title scare you. It’s actually about online communities.

How to design them.

How to grow them.

How to nurture them.

And the implications they bring.

Sweet, important stuff. (Thank’s Fred!)
