Israel, Feldman, Winer, Calacanis, Arrington: Take it to the Fight Club

The never ending drama around puppets is just amplifying what I always suspected about the social media elites. No wonder Ted Murphy scared them so much, he took much worse and handled it much better. Those guys need to take it to a ring

blogorlando 2007: I hope I can sneak in…

blogorlandoOK, so after talking up blogorlando 2007 to every blogger (and some sponsors) I could find in the area, I find myself locked out of registration. My bad for waiting too long to make my attendance official. It’s scheduled for this Thu-Sat, Sept. 27-29, at Rollins College (with bookend social events at Universal CityWalk and Disney/EPCOT). Well, I’m coming anyway and hope to just blend in like the zombie kid at a turtle-lovers convention.

I attended blogorlando 2006 and came away impressed by its “unconference” feel — very free-wheeling and in-the-trenches informative. This year’s schedule is even better with a keynote from Shel Israel and jam-packed session tracks for PR/Marketing, Media, Technical and Life/Local.

Kudos to blogorlando organizer Josh Hallett (Hyku) and I’m really pumped that one of my portfolio companies (PayPerPost) is sponsoring such a great event. If you already knew about and registered for blogorlando, I hope to see you there. If you’re interested but not registered, maybe we can storm the gates together — assuming there are no tazers around…
