So Say We Will

I couldn't help myself after listening to Buzz Out Loud Episode 688. This is totally rushed and just for comedic effect so forget how bad it looks and enjoy. Or I'll through you out the nearest airlock, gods help me.

We all have had a moment like this with a friend or family member when it comes to our beloved Battlestar but since I haven't yet started recording all my conversations Jason will be held up as an example for us all to see.

Don’t Follow Twitter Blindly

Note to self: Next time when you see Tom Merritt's tweet about calling C|NET Live try to have a question ready so you don't feel like a dork when you actually get the switchboard.

Of course I don't think asking if Molly Wood is smoking hot in person as she is on C|NET TV is a C|NET Live kind of question.

Now I have a whole week to think of a question.

The Culture of Ownership

Molly Wood of BOL & Buzz Report fame has started a new blog called The Culture of Ownership.

I think this blog is a must read for everyone. Here's the gist taken from the site:

“The general feel in today’s society that everything is somehow copyrighted or property of someone else to the point where it hinders creativity and makes it much more difficult to innovate. It is also the belief that just because you created/thought of something that you should have complete and total control over every aspect of that thing, object or idea.”

When companies want to tell you what you can do with legally purchased merchandise in your own home, I think we have a problem. Even worse when said companies get governments to back them up, even worse.

I wonder how Molly maintains a normal sized head with so much brains crammed in there.

Better Than Being There… Almost

This past week I've been following CES 2008 on the interwebs-tubey-thing-a-ma-gig I have on my Touch.

During the lead up to CES I have listened to the TWIT round table bemoan yet another trip to CES or skip it entirely. Those of us less fortunate (such as myself) would love the chance to visit the CES floor and not just for the chance to stalk Molly Wood. I mean totally accidentally run into her on the show floor, strike up a conversation, convince her to give me a lock of her hair and create my very own House of Mollys a la House of Cosbys. To each his own.

Every night I would fall asleep in bed reading (on the afore mentioned Touch) about CES products on engadget and c|net and I didn't even care that half of the products featured wouldn't be out this year or never since I can't afford them anyway. It is always great to see everything that will be coming down the pipe in the next few years and having more technologically versed individuals sift through the chaft for me. Thanks everyone.

I did catch half of one of the three Buzz Out Loud live shows that were streamed directly from the c|net stage at CES. I was a little disappointed that the BOL producer Jason Howell was off camera though. Still, not definite proof that he is fictional.

Now to convince Donna into going on a Las Vegas holiday that coincides with CES. "Why look honey it's the worlds largest consumer electronic trade show and it's on right now… what are the chances?" Something tells me she wouldn't fall for it either.
