Krishna, you’re not the only one to notice that my blog has gotten boring. It’s going to be boring for a while. Why? I was talking with Guy Kawasaki about this a few weeks ago. A good blog post takes time. Some of his, he told me, take six hours to do.
Now, most of my posts are faster than that, but lately I’ve had my attention other places. Like, tonight, we filmed another Photowalking with Thomas Hawk. We had spectacular conditions so we went to the Half Moon Bay pumpkin places and got some awesome photos. You’ll hear more over on Thomas’ blog soon, I’m sure. Oh, and his new Moocards are cool. Not quite as cool as a laser-etched metal card that can cut steak, but cooler than 99.9% of the business cards I’ve collected over the years.
A new video will pop up every day or so from now on over on ScobleShow. Here’s our new friend, David Chamberlain, who runs a philanthropic travel agency. Really it’s just an opportunity to share the beach by our house with you. I believe in getting your feet wet while you’re working.
If you’re bored go and check out Doug Kaye’s new Levelator. It’s free and makes your audio levels come out better. I gotta figure out how to use this for my videos.
Tomorrow is a full day too. We’ll be out on San Francisco’s waterfront for Fleet Week and the Blue Angels. If you’re at Bucks at about 10 a.m. we’ll be there for breakfast with my dad. Afterward I have work meeting with Jay and Ryanne who are heading to India this week for a month (they have been doing all the editing on my ScobleShow).
Oh, something totally non boring showed up at the house today: a 30-inch Apple monitor. My new Mac Pro hasn’t arrived yet, though. I decided to go with that rather than a laptop after Dan McVicar told me his made him 10 times more productive (he also has a 17-inch MacBookPro).
Speaking of Dan, yesterday he announced the Late Night Mash. I’m excited about this new show. Dan’s not boring like me.
Of course, I guess I could always get fired like this guy did (did he really get fired for quoting me?) Getting fired always makes you less boring. But, his employer is saying he didn’t get fired for his blog. Not a good move, though, on his employer’s part.
Maybe I should get fired for writing a boring blog, though…
