Why you should not get drunk with podcasters

Last weekend Maryam and I got to visit several Washington State wineries. That was fun and good. But then Tim Reha turned on his recorder and got me doing the “butter knife scratch.” I’ll never live this down. I’m sure it’ll be on Valleywag by the end of the day.

Anyway, with a weekend of parties coming up due to the Vloggies being in town, this is a valuable lesson to remember. Getting drunk with videobloggers is even worse! :-)

Over on Valleywag there’s a hillarious video about YouTube done by Colbert. Said the same thing as Messina, but a whole lot funnier!

  1. Robert Scoble and the Butter Knife Scratch

    And now for a bit of lighthearted silliness and jocularity… During our “Grapes on a Plane” event last week, we made a post-conference foray to Hedges Family Estate in Richland, WA on a couple of private jets courtesy of Greenpoint…

  2. I don’t understand why you care about Valleywag so much. I’ve been seeing recently that much of what’s posted there is melodramatic, wrong, or just “who cares” material. That’s fine, my blog is almost 100% “who cares” material for most others, but I don’t claim to be some influential know it all either.

    Take the article on David Pogue recently… Just because Pogue did a recap of his own reviews for the year and it’s “only” November, suddenly he’s declared insane? First, big yawn, and second, what does the author think of people that actually do something that’s noteworthy in an insane manner? People with low thresholds of drama don’t do well in life.

    There are some interesting posts there, but no more so than many other less renown blogs I subscribe to. I don’t get it. Down with Valleywag. :)

  4. […] Hi Scoble, hey, few of us on a podcast (not drunk although I suspect someone hit the rubber cement a bit- host)…It should be coming out soon perhaps when Tipper Gore is done labeling it. In truth, really it is that long and I advise you just to skip to the last 10 minutes where there is some real insight into AIs affecting algorithms (unlike this totally ridiculous crap on broadmatch) and save the other valuable time in your life to do anything else….or listen to the monkey phone call piece.
