Dvorak and Rupley Love Office Space

As if I needed another reason to love the Cranky Geeks!...Dvorak and Rupley apparently both love Office Space.
In other news, I find it sad that:
1. 1 in 4 geeks (Veronica Belmont) cared about whether the CIA would be spying on everyone by using Google
2. 1 in 4 geeks (John C. Dvorak) cared what the international community felt about it.
3. 0 in 4 geeks had enough faith in the intelligence to believe the could get around Google security if they really needed to, anyway.

Of TWIT and Twitter

On the March 31st podcast of TWIT, Leo basically laughed at the inevitability of newspapers ceasing to exist in written form. I humbly beg to differ. Movies weren't killed by tv-they changed. Books weren't killed by magazines-they changed. I think that future papers will be different-and I hope network news will. But, I dread the idea of reading everything on my Amazon wish list from a digital screen....of course I wear glasses.
God Bless Twitter-and Four20. By following, my follower I found out about the 404 podcast-and that Marty was on the latest episode!

Louderback Gives Marty Props!

Martin told Gator that he never sees cool stuff come up when he Googled his name. Hopefully, he read the compliment he got from Louderback about his shows. I was reading the MediaBistro Circus blog for their May circus event and read the following:

What's your favorite Revision3 show?
I love all my children equally. But Web Drifter and 'Lil Internet Superstar make me laugh.

Late Lunch for Louderback

Jim Louderback is giving a free webcast on the state of online video. Of course, it's at 2:00 on a I'll be bringing my lunch that day (and my laptop). I don't have a longer post because I spent my time watching another-not free-webcast on how to improve this blog. All kudos go to All faults are my own...

Twice the Marty!

First the Gazette-then an episode of Internet Superstar-thanks Marty!
A great episode with an interview of Natali Del Conti. I love to watch Loaded and actually remembered her from Cranky Geeks. I agree with Marty and Gator that it would be cool if she was working with Rev3.
P.S.--Why is Wikipedia evil? First they delete East meets West--now Natali? Who are these editors and why does this feel personal? If they keep up the subjective deletions, people will stop using them as a reliable information source and they'll get replaced....maybe that will be a good thing.
