If I were evil…

I was just reading about 30 Boxes new Facebook ad swap service. That got me thinking. My Facebook profile is literally a “who’s who” of the Tech industry. And anything I put on my Facebook profile instantly goes out to everyone who is my friend. I have more than 2,200 friends and I’ve only been on Facebook for three weeks.

Since ABC.com charges $75 per 1,000 users to show people advertisements on Lost and other shows, why shouldn’t I do the same?

Why shouldn’t I charge $300 to $500 to companies who want me to ad their applications to Facebook?

But, nah, I’m not evil.

I will put a thank you to Seagate for sponsoring my digital life, though, on my wall.

But seriously, that might add up to some serious change someday…

Oh, Gillmor! (Fake Steve will hate this) — EXPLICIT

Bad Sinatra starts out with a walk into Marc Benioff’s office (CEO of Salesforce.com) and goes downhill from there. How far downhill? Let’s watch…

After Benioff’s office, the video rolls into a conversation with Dan Farber, ZDNet’s head blogger.
Then to Doc Searls talking with Salim Ismael.

Now he’s arguing with Dan Farber. Hmmm, now you get to see what San Francisco parties are like. Ahh, “Office is Dead” already comes up.

Mike Arrington shows up. Calls Gillmor “a dick.”

Ahh, I’m in the Bad Sinatra I video too. Gillmor is too lazy to pan on me. Dang, that tape is old, I wondered when Steve would use it.

Slightly not office safe. Or is that “slightly not Microsoft Office ™ safe?” Heheh. It’s not really that explicit, just a four-letter word or two.

Finally, Marc Benioff’s face at the end when Steve asks him about the iPhone is priceless. I bet Fake Steve Jobs will hate this cause of what he says about the iPhone.

As the description says, “it’s not the Gillmor Gang, but who cares.”

Can’t wait to see #2.

Spock: Mahalo killer?

[podtech content=http://media1.podtech.net/media/2007/07/PID_011856/Podtech_SuperNova_spock_demo.flv&postURL=http://www.podtech.net/home/3552/using-spock-to-find-information-about-people-on-the-web &totalTime=868000&breadcrumb=60111ef0b7ea44e58045c150058dc163]

If you haven’t heard the hype about a slew of new search engines that are either here now, or coming soon, you probably will. There’s Jason Calacanis’ Mahalo. There’s Barney Pell’s PowerSet. And there’s Jay Bhatti’s Spock.

I’ll try to get all three onto my ScobleShow, but today I have Spock which is actually a useful way to find information on people.

Too bad that Facebook is quickly becoming THE place I search for people’s email addresses. Seriously, you should check out my Facebook friends. The 2,200 people there are the “who’s who” of the tech industry. Everyone except for Fake Steve is there, it seems.

Anyway, Spock is an interesting personal search tool and one I’ll be using a lot to stalk Kevin Rose with. Why Kevin? Cause mentioning him in a blog post along with Jason is worth at least 13 more hits today. At LEAST!

To get serious for a moment, here’s a pretty interesting demo and a separate interview for those of you who really want the details.

Sorry about the headline but I had to get Jason’s attention. :-)

Video startups get veterans to jump

Wild, I was just reading feeds and posting the best to my link blog when this came through Google Reader: Old Media Jumping to New Media. Wow, Jim Louderback (pictured above at a recent photowalking) is now CEO over at Revision 3. Damn, that just made Revision 3 a lot more interesting (not that they needed interesting with Kevin Rose and millions of dollars in new funding behind them).

I’ve known Jim a long time. He interviewed me for a job back when ZDTV was starting up (you know it as TechTV, which is where Kevin Rose, along with a raft of others, gained his popularity).

That report is also saying Veronica Belmont has left CNET to join Jason Calacanis’ new firm, Mahalo. UPDATE: Veronica has posted her own announcement on her blog.

Bonus link: I love Mark Cuban’s HDNet and he gives a report on that here.

Ahhh, the video space is heating up! Gotta get back to work…

PS, thanks to Alan Leclair for the photo of Jim.

Zillow to show off its swanky office tomorrow

I wish I were still in Seattle (just got back to Half Moon Bay from Seattle) but tomorrow if you’re there you should drop by Zillow for lunch tomorrow. They have the best view of any startup I’ve been to (and I’ve been to a lot). You’ll meet these guys, if you go.

Tonight, if you’re in Seattle, you should drop by the Seattle Ignite event where you’ll meet the Adobe AIR team, among others. My friend Buzz Bruggeman, CEO of ActiveWords will be there too.
