Did Calacanis just call me fat?

Yeah, Jason Calacanis just called me fat and challenged me to lose weight in a program titled “fat bloggers.” Ahh, I just ate a piece of Swiss chocolate. How am I gonna lose weight with the Swiss stuff around? Anyway, I weigh 214 pounds and would like to get down to 190. Of course, that’d require not eating Swiss chocolate and getting off my lazy behind and do some exercise. That reminds me of this Wellsphere conversation I had recently.

Shooting the world’s longest building

Everytime I am with Thomas Hawk I grow more fond of his skills. Here’s just a small number of photos we shot in about an hour yesterday. Bebo White gave us part II of the Stanford Linear Accelerator tour. Part III will happen on April 20th. Here’s me shooting Bebo. What does the world’s longest building look like? This!

One thing I picked up about Thomas: he loves little grungy things. Put him in front of a water cooling tower that’s been running for decades and he could spend hours just shooting the goo-covered pipes. They are the goo that helped win three Nobel Prizes for Physics.

Next week at Northern Voice I’m gonna be blessed with hanging out with Kris Krug. He’s another gifted photographer. Hopefully we can get a Photowalk together there. Oh, and Northern Voice is almost sold out. So, if you wanna be there, you better get your ticket tonight.

UPDATE: here’s Thomas Hawk’s writeup of the tour.

Doug Kaye: voice behind Gigavox

Have you ever listened to ITConversations? I love that podcast series. The voice you hear is Doug Kaye’s. But, now he’s started a new company to help podcasters out. If you’re a podcaster you’ll want to watch these.

Interview. Demo.

The bloggers get it wrong, Wired says

Wired Magazine’s Ryan Singel and Kevin Poulsen says that the bloggers got it wrong about Ted Stevens “protecting children” bill. The Wired post ends:Also the blog world famously claims it’s self-correcting. 27B anxiously awaits proof.”

Wikipedia isn’t commercial? Yeah, right.

By the way, Ryan and Kevin’s blog post doesn’t have a link to the bill’s text that works. Anyone have a link that works? Post it in my comments. Thanks!

UPDATE: WebProNews has a similar point in “DOPA Jr. Is Not A Wikipedia Ban” which includes more details on what the bill actually does.
