It’s funny – I started this weekly wrap-up to skewer the insanity of the technosphere. It’s an odd little world that thinks an awful lot of itself and needs a dose of reality on a regular basis. But sometimes I just can’t muster the energy to make fun of Scoble’s latest rant, or whatever that week’s kerfuffle is. And, as you may have noticed, these posts have been drifting more towards actual news updates and app reviews. So I’ll put the question to my small but faithful group of readers: which Vortex do you like better – Jekyll’s or Hyde’s? (If you need a prompt, Hyde was the evil one.) In the meantime…
—Robert Scoble thinks Twitter is worth “five to ten billion dollars.” Sigh.
–Sarah Lacy is mad at Brazil because she didn’t get her visa arranged in time. The only thing missing from this temper tantrum is the sound of stamping feet.
–We’ve all done it but John Hodgman did it in spades. What was meant as a direct message on Twitter instead went out to his 82,000+ followers – his cell phone number.
–Yeah, this site is petty and mean. But gosh, it’s funny.
And with that, I’ll leave you to a happy holiday weekend. Step away from the computer, get some sun, and meet me back here next week.
