A few less-than-consequential things picked up this past weekend at PodCamp Boston 3. There’s only four to start, but that’ll do:
Quote of the weekend: “This is where I ran out of Schlitz.” Joe Cascio, describing the end of inspiration for assembling his presentation on distributed microblogging. I decided to adopt the phrase as any expression of running out of steam. I was completely out of Schlitz the Monday after PodCamp, for instance.
By the way, Joe pointed me to the inspiration for his turn of phrase:
“I’m working on my personal bland.”
That was actually me, misspeaking at a moment when I was totally out of Schlitz. There are some folks out there who could stand to work on their personal bland, now that i think on it.
Yet another quote (paraphrased):
“The light saber doesn’t make a mess– it cauterizes the wound as it cuts through.”
Wandering Troubador Chris Brogan solidified my musical ambivalence with multiple renditions of the Counting Crows’ “Mr. Jones.” As an antidote, and for the last word, I submit this far superior “Jones” song, the great Billy Paul singing “Me and Mrs. Jones.”
