It’s snow day for Cuban to pick on BusinessWeek

Ahh, Microsofties won’t get to work today. Snow days, like what Seattle is seeing today (thanks Jeff Sandquist for the pictures), is something that never happens in Silicon Valley. I remember the last time it snowed in Silicon Valley. March 16, 1976. Total on ground? Maybe 1/8th of an inch. But it was a big enough deal that I remember it. I was in sixth grade.

Anyone catch Mark Cuban’s expose of BusinessWeek’s “journalism?” That’s blogging at its best and why anyone quoted in the press should have a blog.

Anyway, enjoy your snow day Microsofties! Maryam and I are off to London. More when we arrive. I’ll be off email and out of contact until tomorrow, probably. We don’t have our cell phones on while here in Europe, sorry. Email is it. robertscoble@hotmail.com.

The “pissed as newts” tour

Meet at the Eros statue in London at 1 p.m. on Friday to go on the “pissed as newts” tour. I love how they use language over here, by the way. While walking around Cardiff yesterday I realized where a lot of those weird Web 2.0 names must have come from: Wales. The Welch language seems to be missing a few vowels. I should take a picture of a sign to show you what I mean.

Anyway, we won’t just visit pubs. Hopefully the locals will show us around some other fun things in London too, so if you’re not into getting “pissed like newts” please come along too. I promise not to get too out of control. After all, Maryam’s coming along and will slap me upside the head if I drink too much.

On other news, we’re off to London today. I just read all my feeds and put up a few dozen new items on my link blog. There’s lots of good blogging going on lately.
