Josh Wolf for San Francisco Mayor?
Last night I had drinks with Josh Wolf (CNet Media Sphere), Brian Conley (Alive in Baghdad), talking citizen journalism, politics, girls - you know, the usual. Then Josh Wolf revealed he's thinking of running for mayor of San Francisco. If Josh Wolf is elected, he'll wear a Justin.tv-style webcam because he believes government should take a clue from the open source movement. Transparent government, what a concept!
Am I live??No, but I totally was. For like 3 minutes.

Am I going to San Jose?
Yep, for a couple of days. I'm on a panel at the Web Video Summit:
Hillary Clinton gets racy!
Those silly Wonkette pranksters. Prince would be a sexy choice for Hillary Clinton, but she went with something more... vomitous. Celine Dion. But, I gotta give "mad props" to whomever came up with this Sopranos spoof.

Sometimes I spell things funny to dissuade Google from caring about my writings. Strange, no?

Podtech, please pay Lan Bui
Hey Podtech - this is pretty cut-and-dry. You used Lan Bui's photograph in a promotional contest without his permission. He sent you an invoice but you aren't responding. Do the right thing.

Max Headroom steals the airwaves
During a broadcast of the Dr. Who episode "Horror of Fang Rock" on WTTW Chicago Channel 11, on Sunday November 22nd, 1987, at around 11:15pm, a Video "Pirate" wearing a Max Headroom mask broke into the signal and transmitted one of the weirdest, unauthorized things ever to hit the Chicago airwaves.
