  1. Go visit the Mayan ruins while you’re at it.
    You can do so much while at a destination that’s unrelated to work and still deduct it as a business expense. I went to Universal Studios when I was in Orlando for other reasons for instance. Take the really expensive guided tour if you have a lot of gross to get rid of. Just a suggestion.

  3. I’m curious, does everybody from the show get free trips or is it just Scoble?
    Did Rocky get to go too?

    I assume there was a board resolution to set aside X amount of cash for business vacations with the VC members ect. But does it include everybody or just Scoble himself?

    I kind of think it would suck for the rest of the people if that was the case.
    I know networks and even cable shows bring staff along.

  5. “Forbes paid my way. Not PodTech.”

    I wonder how they reconcile buying trips for people who aren’t employees to Cancun?

    I love how big corporations get away with murder at the IRS, but when an individual tries to claim a questionable dependant, all hell breaks loose. I guess they count on there being so much paperwork that it all gets lost in an audit.

  7. Here is what I’ve been thinking about today:

    - Mexico city shakes a bit, someone twitters it, techmeme goes crazy, A-List bloggers go so far as to video phone calls with “survivors”, wrap themselves in the cloak of “see what twitter can do”, and count the web hots

    - a major disaster occurs in Kansas where real tragedy happens, perhaps nary a twitter to be twitted (from what I can tell), and nothing…silence…

    Not surprisingly, there must not be any gain from faux concern in an actual tragedy for the A-List.

  9. Who knew meant that he thinks A-list bloggers are crybabies who dramatize and blow up any minor event to get sympathy and traffic. I don’t think he was specifically referring to Robert in this case.
