What’s With All the Love?

What is with the increasing amount of love I’ve been receiving lately? This sort of shit:


Are you reading The Drama 2.0 Show? If not, you should be…The Drama 2.0 Show, which I assume most people interested in Web 2.0 are already reading, doesn’t take that tack. Instead, it focuses on debunking much of the Pollyanne-esque commentary that I think every blog about Web 2.0 sees.


Drama 2.0 is fast becoming one of my favorite blogs…I feel that I kind of love/hate Drama 2.0…like he’s right but would be so fun to bust his balls over stuff…Well done Drama on playing up your pretention just enought to be charming….

Note to any attractive female readers (and the intelligent, beautiful woman I will be having dinner and dessert with this coming Friday): Alisa and I have ended our engagement. She’s all about the conversation, I’m all about the sell. She’s obsessed with data portability, I think data portability is bullshit. She dreams about giant, pulsating tag clouds, I dream about upgrading from my 80-foot yacht to a 280-foot yacht. She’s into the “social graph,” I’m into graphing the increase in value of . Clearly, we’re better off being friends with benefits rather than ex-wife and ex-husband.


Quite brilliant article on the E-Consultancy website…


The genius behind the Drama 2.0 blog…

Please people. If you continue to shower me with compliments and flattery, I just might get soft. I think I had my first warm, fuzzy feeling in years the other day and this disturbs me profusely. If I go soft, it won’t do any of us any good: my ability to survive and thrive is dependent on me remaining a ruthless, cold-hearted bastard. If I don’t, I won’t be able to continue showering you with the morsels of wisdom that stimulate your mind and soul.

In short, please refrain from loving me too much. Trust me: my ego is already more inflated than the Goodyear Blimp and therefore your assistance is not necessary. If you want to do me a favor, start .

    You’re damn near the only soul in the “blogosphere” that understands what a crock this Web-2.0-with-no-revenue-model is…

    Just write a piece about how absolutely wonderful, innovative, and necessary to the evolution of humans Twitter is, and I’m sure you’ll have enough hate to harden Mother Teresa.

    Tim Berners-Lee will have your head now, love. Oh, and you totally miss the boat on DP, but then again…most late-adopters do. x0×0x0.

    Alisa, darling: who is Tim Berners-Lee? Is he your ex? I thought you had agreed to check your baggage at the gates of my estate.

    I also thought that since we’re not getting married, we weren’t having children. Now you’re trying to pressure me into adoption? Do you really think that I don’t see through your attempts to establish a common-law marriage?

    Is a pound of Beluga Prime from Caviarteria on our first date not enough for you?

    You are the Harry Foundalis of Web 2.0!

    After some weeks without stopping by over here; I find myself cheering over your remarks. Please go on, my friend. We all need to know that everybody everywhere is having greater delusions than ourselves.
