Jason Calacanis hands keys to blogosphere to Louis Gray

Why does stuff like this happen? Blame it on iPhone fever. It’s a slow news day, other than Apple’s crap. So, Jason goes out and trolls for attention, the way that only he can do. Brilliant at it, too. Got BusinessWeek’s Sarah Lacy to bite. Sarah, Sarah, Sarah. I really do need to teach you something about Jason, don’t I?

But I couldn’t resist the temptation to take Jason seriously, either, and assume he’s handing the keys to the blogosphere over to the new guard. Who’s that? Well, let’s start with Louis Gray. He’s my top most interesting guy according to FriendFeed stats (only TechCrunch’s Mike Arrington beats him).

But, seriously. Jason’s playing all of us. And, anyway, he knows how to get us all to listen to him when he needs that. Blogging no longer is the only tool with which someone like Jason can get us all involved in his drama.

Or, like Mathew Ingram says, “give me a break.”

  1. Remind me again what the definition of Narcissism is.

    If Jason is heading in other directions, bully for him. Is the world going to stop spinning? Perspective. Get some.

  3. I don’t think Jason was trolling. Jason is the CEO of a web startup that just isn’t proving itself (sorry Jason, it’s just not) and that has some serious sharks as investors. He was clearly told to get back to work and focus on the business.

  5. I’m not convinced it isn’t real, despite Jason’s history.

    It so happens that I deleted my own blog just last night.

    The trolling hate mongers have taken over. Blogging is now quite the opposite of enjoyable.

  7. I saw this – surely its a joke, and a pretty good one at that. I’m surprised people actually fell for this. Or it could be a double-fake whammy, and the jokes on us Robert. Quintessentially Jason I guess.
