Thank you Guy Kawasaki

I have started reading my Google Reader feeds again. Of course, if you followed my FriendFeed page you would already have known that.

But, Google Reader isn’t as efficient for finding something different, I’ve found, as just scanning a page of headlines.

That’s where Guy Kawasaki comes in. He has a page of ego bloggers. I like it, because I’m on top. Hey, if you are gonna be on an ego blog page you better have a competitive ego, no? Heheh.

Anyway, I was scanning this page. I read lots of these people already, but I’ve missed a bunch cause I just can’t keep up with everything on Google Reader anymore.

There I found a blog by Jimmy Guterman on O’Reilly’s blogs and one of his headlines was “Amazing TED Talk.”

Indeed, it was. Amazing.

So, thank you Guy Kawasaki for bringing me the egos which, in between being egotistical or whatever got us all on this page, did bring me an amazing TED Talk.

The talk? Jill Bolte Taylor’s talk, where she talks you through her own stroke. She’s a Harvard neuroanatomist.

Can I use the word “amazing” again? This video deserves it.

  1. scoble,
    can you pull off a “guy kawasaki” or will you always be the guy carrying that camera and running behind people and asking “who are u ” followed by “hahhahahahahaha” , i expect u should have been doing that interview with steve since you were the microsoft evangelist where as guy was apple’s evangelist, i guess you would have been too unnerved by steve and the techie audience

  3. Oh my god egos is so typically US-centric and sad. When will you, Gabe and Guy realise there is more to the internet than just reporting/repeating a bunch of self centered A[merican]-list bloggers but you are all so up each others A[rses] it doesn’t surprise me.

    Read any American newspaper and the world/global news is normally a footnote at the end of the paper.

    Wake up smell the coffee, the world hates fat, loud stupid yanks and lists like the one Guy has produced is a reflection of this introverted nature.

    What will you all do when the bubble 2.0 goes pop?

  5. I like alltop but not as a platform for reading but for discovering new blogs to follow. First time I looked at it I think I added 15 new feeds to my reader. I haven’t noticed if the list has changed since it was launched but I’ll hit every now and then to see if any new feeds are interesting.

    When did the whole thing turn into an ego trip?

    Is it the equivalent of the elite lounge at the airport?

    Maybe we are in the danger zone when we start to believe our own hype and listen to ourselves talking rather than others.

    Thanks Gary for that

  11. Hey Scoble, did you know yahoo small business unit sucks?

    Don’t you ever try hosting anything with them, if you have any problem you are out of luck, they never answer your emails, they just don’t care.

    If you know some heavy ass there please tell them to fire the whole customer service unit.

    And yes, I am pissed off!

  13. I see Fake Steve Jobs is at the top. I remember there used to be a fake Bill Gates, but maybe he retired. Fake Scobleizer can’t be far behind. ;)

    And ZeFrank is in there. I thought he’d retired, but he’s got a text blog down the left side of his home page. And plenty of traffic still.

  15. Thanks Robert,
