Carlton: you're running the class!!!!! - Robert Scoble
I haven't had this much fun in a class since I skipped history classes in high school.... - Stephanie Segel

@Sasha it's more ... Leadership = seeking out and accepting Responsibility - Capn' One Eye - adrift
To lead you have to fight the urge to run when things are scary. If they're scary, that's exactly what you need to do. You grow by trying new things. Complacency achieves nothing. - Sheryl
Listen voraciously, speak cautiously, invest in others before asking for something in return, don't assume influence - build it, maintain vision, back it with understanding and knowledge, and continually focus on being the best most creative and humble person you can be.

Leadership comes from the dude with the biggest camera lens. - Jason Pollock

hey nobody brought up knowledge at Wharton - series :)- - Peter Dawson
Leadership is a cloudy concept because people confuse the art of being followed, with the art of directing followers well. - James Watters
Lead Follow or get out of the way! - DivemasterDoug

Leaders don't just post links or quotes - James Watters
oppyss heres the linky for my previous comment - Peter Dawson
Leaders don't need social networks either, James... - Ton Zijp
@ Peter Dawson; don't you think empowerment is slightly separate from leadership? - James Watters
I believe everyone is a leader to some degree... it's not a definition but an innate part of being human and being involved in society. Like a sense of humor... everyone has one, even if you can't detect it from the jokes you're telling. - SAM
@James, no its part of being a leader. empowering others ! - Peter Dawson
This exercise has proven a rare breed of leadership - realizing when those around can add incredible value and letting them take center stage. This is a very tough lesson for most leaders to master, but it's illustrated quite well here! - Tom Parnell

@James, most leader empower their team and then get the hell out of way so the team can run the race. they (the leader) are there only to remove the hurdles.. most CEO are chief Hurdle removers !! - Peter Dawson
A truly great Leader can lead with his mouth shut. - Sheryl
people browser is awesome - rich price
I maintain that leadership is just the art of being followed; management is what comes after - James Watters
Scoble, you mind if I sell this thread to Franklin Covey or John Maxwell? - SAM
Nicholas: so Zuckerberg is not a leader yet, one could say. - Ton Zijp
A leader gives credit when contributions are made, understanding that perceptions vary among the collective intelligence. - Michele Lorito-Chase
We are here posting for Scoble because he was one of the first big victors in corporate blogging; case in point; we arent posting for a also ran; being followed stems from victories and conquests always has - James Watters
@Scott, only if you give the $$$ to the SickKids foundation :)- LOL - Peter Dawson
Interesting that so many people are posting "traits" of a leader - only one portion of leadership. - LPH™ and his dog P™
Michele, there were lots of leaders who didn't listen, but they still lead. They should've, but they didn't. - Ton Zijp
@LPH - hey yeah traits are better, after all Hitler was a leader too !! let not forget that .. likewise Pol Pot, Stalin and a host of others.. there is the dark side of leadership too ! - Peter Dawson

Jeff: talking about leadership is talking in cliché's? - Ton Zijp
don't be a turd. Bosses are normally turds. Leaders are people that lead first by doing and teach you how to do it the right way without being overbearing or conceded. - Zach Scott
When wolves fight for pack leader they don't fight to the death or great injury; just till the moment they know who would win - James Watters
It's worth noting (if it hasn't been already) that great leadership involves setbacks almost by necessity. It's how those loses are learned from and adapted that differentiate how well individuals move forward. - Rick Bucich
Leadership is not about directing followers, rather it's about influence; acting in a way that others find useful, interesting and engaging. - Marcia Conner

In a healthy environment motivation comes from within (not reward/punishment). We need people who think & act, not retrieve & salivate. - Marcia Conner
Don't be afraid to make mistakes... or own up to them. - Steve Lynch from twhirl
[adjusts monocle] ja, ja, but reward & punishment in ein hierarchy is der basis of der Führerprinzip ("leader principle"). a TRUE LEADER demands ABSOLUTE OBEDIENCE from those below him. you Amerikaners are so soft.... [swats riding crop into palm] - Karim
Well, one thing you could teach is that geeks have a short attention span. Over half an hour and we move on.... - Sheryl
glad @marciamarcia pointed me to this. when I've led, I've followed 2 principles: 1) Shunryu Suzuki's principle of control: the best way to control a person is not to try to control, but to watch, and give them lots of space and 2) peer pressure. a person follows me as a leader because the group wants to and the person wants the acceptance of the group - Lou Clark

What is the purpose of the class - why do you want to learn everything about leadership? Is it to improve the participants leadership skills or just to tickle their curiosity? If you really want your class to improve their abilities to lead, you need to put them in a position where they do lead. People learn from what they do. So go ahead and give each participant (or group of participants) a challenge: lead us out of this crisis! - Olavur Ellefsen
Jeff: +1 you make a great point. A person does not have to be a top dog, so to speak, to be a leader. Leaders come in all shapes and sizes. (Statuses too) - Sheryl

Never try to lead people. It doesn't work. Better off building and guiding a team. If you can organize a team that works well together, you'll spend less time trying to hold the team together and more of your energy guiding them and being productive.

A Video Prank at Domino’s Damages Its Brand - -
A Video Prank at Domino’s Damages Its Brand -
When two Domino’s Pizza employees filmed a prank in the restaurant’s kitchen, they decided to post it online. In a few days, thanks to the power of social media, they ended up with felony charges, more than a million disgusted viewers, and a major company facing a public relations crisis. In videos posted on YouTube and elsewhere this week, a Domino’s employee in Conover, N.C., prepared sandwiches for delivery while putting cheese up his nose, nasal mucus on the sandwiches, and violating other health-code standards while a fellow employee provided narration. The two were charged with delivering prohibited foods. By Wednesday afternoon, the video had been viewed more than a million times on YouTube. References to it were in five of the 12 results on the first page of Google search for “Dominos,” and discussions about Domino’s had spread throughout Twitter." - Thomas Hawk from Bookmarklet
OMG, that's freaking gross - Rahsheen
This is like Michael Phelps. Why tape or take pics of yourself doing something that can be your demise? - Shevonne
Customers are not the only source of bad buzz for the brands... - Aurélien
I bet this seemed like a good idea at the time. What idiots. - Kreg Steppe
criminal arrests and now a civil lawsuit. Not smart. - Thomas Hawk
You can mess up your life and your brand very quickly online. Glad these two people aren't making food anymore. - Robert Scoble
I've only ordered pizza delivery from Domino's once in my life. Never did that again because if I'm at home, I might as well cook something. - Morton Fox
Such an endemic problem in the fast food business: young people, first job, bad management, insufficient training. Add in social media and you have quite an explosive dynamic. What should/could Domino's corporate do? - Francine Hardaway
Vile. I'm so glad I don't order from Domino's right now. *adds this story to the why you need to monitor your social media presence even if you don't have one on purpose file* - Leslie Poston
I just ate a Domino's pizza :| - Parth Awasthi
Yes in the viral webs it's a lot harder to quietly fire idiots like this. Dominos needs to a) do it publicly, and b) launch a whole "see how clean we are campaign". - Ryan Stanley
This is why I link to the conversation @dsilverman -- in this case the conversation here is just as interesting as the news item. Also, this is why you need to hire smart people if they are going to post stuff online. You no longer have any control of our employees and whether or not they talk with the public. So you better hire well and train them for the new PR world. - Robert Scoble
Even more "ick" than previously thought of the company (buy local pizza!). Reminds one of - Shane Curcuru
...but it makes me wonder about the food "security" of ALL restaurants. you think Domino's is the only food chain with sketchy employees? This is the best argument I've seen for cooking at home. Hello Food Network. - Landor Associates
I think Domino's did as well as they could handling this. They seemed to get on it pretty early. I'm not sure that there is much else that they can do. I don't eat Dominos pizza generally speaking, but this video wouldn't keep me away from it. This could happen to any company. Remember when that woman faked the finger in the chilli at Wendy's? - Thomas Hawk
I stopped going to the local Burger King because of racism. I also stopped going to the local Taco Bell because the manager yelled at me. I'm not even going to speculate on what they've been putting in my food. Fast food chains really don't have much control over their employees beyond firing them when something bad comes to light. - Morton Fox
It was disgusting. A lot of damage control to do with the credibility of employees under scrutiny. - Kannan
Looks like they weren't able to avoid the Noid. - Rob
Domino's fiasco also about video camera/phone in workplace? Many folks are not allowed. I think we will see a growth in corporations taking cell phones @ the door similar to schools. - Catholic Meme
Problem is we never know about this kind of stuff until after the fact. And the brands are at the mercy of franchise managers and the potential psychos they may have hired. Could be *any* food service provider. - Ryan Stanley
@Shevonne: I think they did it because they thought it was funny... - Landor Associates
that's all well & fine, but I can't remember the last time I ate Domino's on purpose... they're like pretty much last on my list of pizza options - Krikit Media
This will also force more businesses onto social networks. If I worked at a large brand with millions of customers I would have teams online that would work just to make sure that if something like this does happen that there wold be people to answer it. - Robert Scoble
I don't think it's wise to assume such acts are rampant across fast food chains and yes having an online team for such large organizations is a must. So how do you think they handled the situation ? what could they have done better ? - Mayank Dhingra
Trust is a big issue. Over the years we've placed a lot of trust in others who prepare our food. Anyone remember when Julia Child accidentally dropped a chicken on the kitchen floor, placed it back on the platter and chortled "no one will ever know." - J.D. Deutschendorf
Robert is right, all these exposes seem to be happening via social media, yet businesses still have to rely on traditional media for their damage limitation. - Iain Baker
Iain: businesses have no clue anymore how stories are built. The quotes from the Domino people demonstrate that. They assume that bloggers or Twitterers with 15 followers don't have any power. I know they do. - Robert Scoble
Iain: when I quit Microsoft I told 15 people and in three days had millions of media impressions, according to Microsoft's PR firm. 15 people can DESTROY a brand, if they have something like these videos in their hands. - Robert Scoble
Wow, this is a great example on so many fronts. Think before you act, Think before you POST (most certainly)... and Aurélien makes a great point about customers not being the only source for publicity with Robert really fleshing out some of the reasons why. AND this is why I love FF... so many great comments describing varying facets and the ripple-effect this type of medium now offers. - Ken Stewart | ChangeForge
@Chris White. Zachry's does make damn good pizza. it's also a coop with a majority of the business owned by it's employees. I'd think employees would have a strong incentive to make sure that this sort of thing would never happen there. Their Mediterranean pizza is amazing. - Thomas Hawk
Robert: Absolutely. We're going to see more of this sort of thing happening, can't understand why firms aren't preparing strategies to deal with it. - Iain Baker
Iain: most businesses think this stuff is unimportant because it seems "small." Businesses are committees. Ask 100 people whether the New York Times is important. You'll hear 99 yesses. Ask them whether some Twitterer with 15 followers is important. You'll probably hear 87 nos. - Robert Scoble
Chris: objectivity is overrated. - Robert Scoble
Hmmmm, I don't think it's a question of making social Media important, it's about recognising that information and news, good or bad, flows freely along whatever channel it can find. - Iain Baker
Paging the Darwin Awards. - Mike Doeff
BTW, I noticed no one has posted the video. Here it is! - Andrew Baron
What a silly couple. Didn't they know they were getting into trouble? Or maybe they wanted trouble and attract attention to something... uhhmm... I wouldn't be surprised if we see these two running their own show on MTV. - Alexis Bellido
Valeria: good response. - Robert Scoble
I wonder how much this really "damaged" their brand. They don't make very good food. They are a bottom-rung fast food joint. How much do people really expect from them to begin with? - Jeremy Brooks
@Chris White: If you are close enough to get Zachary's, you are close enough to get a real pizza from Lanesplitter. ;-) - Jeremy Brooks
The response from Dominos is going to be text book. Here's a discussion of why: - Robert Scoble
Kamikaze 2.0! - Dimitar Vesselinov
Urgh *barf* :( - Tyson Key
Based on the photos, these two aren't 16 working their first job. - Bill Sanders
So the question I have at this point is which SNL cast member gets to play Kristy in the reenactment of the skit this weekend on snl? - Thomas Hawk

The tipping point for Friendfeed? When celebrities join. I don't see that happening for a while.
Target brands, and they'll come - Jesse Stay
but do we want brands here? - Jeremiah Owyang
There are already tons of people working on behalf of their companies here. I think the tipping point for me will be when I see Jon Stewart mocking the talking heads about being in a "kerfuffle" over FriendFeed. - Mitch
Personally, I like it more when experts of a given subject gather around that subject. Be it the LOLCAT talk way :) - directeur
The tipping point for FF is when CNN and other media outlets use the FF service to expand their own reach; through self-interest they will use FF. - LPH™ and his dog P™
We (pitchengine) have been enabling brands to engage on Twitter in a more conversational manner. We're considering ways to integrate FF, but quite honestly, it takes a different level of sm understanding and I don't think marketers are there yet. - Jason Kintzler
What??? You mean Robert Scoble doesn't count as a celebrity???? - Lindsay
When I overhear the local weather person directing me to his/her FF page like I've heard with Twitter and Facebook recently. - Tony Miller
Balderdash! Did Google get there via celebrities? Or AOL? Or Facebook? Or WordPress? Or any number of other sites. Just because Twitter brought celebrities to the forefront doesn't mean that every new site must have celebrities to reach critical mass. - AJ Kohn
The other thing FriendFeed needs is better mobile support - SMS at the very least. Celebrities understand that. I'm not saying I want it, but for them to hit that point, that's what they need. - Jesse Stay
Lindsay: I am only a celebrity with 18 geeks. - Robert Scoble
Robert, you missed a few zeros ... - LPH™ and his dog P™
It will probably happen on Monday when the new UI is rolled out. Look out for fail whale sightings to come as a result. - Scoble, Alex Scoble from fftogo
I'm not sure. FriendFeed really isn't a 'broadcast' platform. Those who are 'successful' are those who interact :D - Johnny
I think many celebrities would just be confused. - Eric - Final Countdown
Alex, I hope the new UI is as good as the expectations. - LPH™ and his dog P™
FF definitely isn't as user friendly when compared to twitter. It doesn't have the same "mainstream" appeal, more of a niche appeal. - David Spinks
What do you mean David that FF isn't user friendly. Is it easier to just shout into the wild (twitter) or have a conversation requiring listening (reading) what others have to say? Or did you mean something else? - LPH™ and his dog P™
Adding facebook status updates and replys may push them over the edge. - Brian Kenyon
I'm not a celebrity. No one is sending me free tequila for a PR stunt. - Scoble, Alex Scoble
Wait you want Tequila? All you had to do was ask. - Eric - Final Countdown
I can imagine certain celebrities kicking it here. Like Jimmy Fallon. - Rodfather
So what is the purpose of saying this here, Jeremiah? - Louis Gray
Never happen. Thank god. - Leo Laporte
Wil Wheaton (aka weasley crusher) is on here :) - Roberto Bonini
Wil Wheaton's Twitter and Flickr are imported here, but he has no comments or Likes. I don't think you can really call that "on here." - Ken Sheppardson
Maybe I don't want FriendFeed to have a tipping point then. I don't know what celebrities would add to the conversation. I'd rather have all "experts on the sidelines" here, and even better, experts NOT on the sidelines but actually up high in business and government. John McCain, hold your next "town hall meetings" here! - Meryn Stol
Not that Mccain would. He doesn't understand the internet. But I sure would like to see representation from political parties here. - Meryn Stol
How significant will text messaging be? Twitter has the 140-character limit because of that, FriendFeed doesn't. Though I hear too many complaints from Twitter users, saying that the FriendFeed interface just isn't as friendly - maybe this will change tomorrow. - Colin Charles from twhirl
My theory on this: Most celeb's have been texting for years. They've mastered the160 char format and Twitter is a natural fit for them. FF feels more like a discussion forum and most celeb's aren't used to that format. - Mike Doeff
"celebrities" are not a monolithic group. It will click for some based in part on their personality and part on the fluidity with which they find it a useful curatorial and communications venue. My judgment will be based on creativity, level of interesting info contributed, and authenticity of conversations with whomever comes. I won't hold their celebrity-ness against them, and it's no free pass either. - Micah
Well one measure of "success" for friendfeed is that spamming has started. - Scoble, Alex Scoble
First, FF needs to change their recommend list. New members only see tech people. - LPH™ and his dog P™
LPH: I have an account with only Iranians on it. Friendfeed does not recommend tech people there. The recommended list is based on who you follow and who they follow. - Robert Scoble
Robert, has this changed recently? I recall signing up and only tech people being available on the recommend list. As time went, and I subscribed to different people, then the tech people recommendations decreased. - LPH™ and his dog P™
Robert, you *what*? You've just been added to a few anti-terror watchlists I think. ;) I bet you gonna tell me next that you can actually read and write Iranian. That would make you really suspect! ;) - Meryn Stol
I felt the same thing about Twitter a year ago. - Jamie
yea I thought the same thing....the trick is making it so twitter can still be popular. Friendfeed will just be the method that I use to access Twitter. Friendfeed needs to be able to post/get info from all of my networks seemlessly, that way I don't have to ever go on - Jason Stephens
Why do we want Twitter and FF to be popular? I'd rather they stay a bit underground. Celebrity on the Internet doesn't mean the same thing to me. I get a lot more useful info out of non-celebrities. - Dave Sanders
coming soon; demi uses FF to rescue timmy from well. too bad lassie can't tweet - Todd Randolph

What are you guys so excited about? There are already knock-offs out there, and established footwear manufacturers will make them as long as they sell. - Kevin L
What will we have to make fun of now? - Tamara, #TeamMarina
Knock-offs are made because ogs sell. If the OGs are no longer produced - so long knock-offs! It's only a matter of time until they become EXTINCT. Thank god!!! Tamara - Bluetooth headsets ;) - Mona Nomura
As many people as I see wearing them, this is surprising news. Awesome news, but surprising. - Sarah Perez

Dust off your ebay accounts! - Mona Nomura
@Mona Yes! I like this idea - Tamara, #TeamMarina
I probably wouldn't have that big of a problem with them, if more people took care of their feet. OMG gross. - Mona Nomura from IM
Sad, really. I know people who work while standing all day who thought these shoes were a gift from God. Hate to see them go for that reason. Personally, I never "got into" them. - Anthony K. Valley © from fftogo
THere are tons of other options - in soles, bunyon shoes, podiatrist certified, etc. Those things are just plain ugly. - Mona Nomura from IM
Boo! Great as house shoes or on the beach! - WoH: Professor MOTHRA

Swiss cheese for feet = DO NOT WANT - Mona Nomura from IM
A) We're not going out of business. B) we have other stuff that aren't the "ugly" iconic shoes everyone knows and c) Losing my job wouldn't be the best news ever. :-p Seriously though - if people talked about our OTHER shoes, maybe we can move on from the comfort but ugly talk into just comfortable and EVERYONE will be happy..... - George Smith
the company is also very active in social media - Erin @queenofspain
I AM SO HAPPY - Mike Nayyar
I hear their social media guy is wicked awesome, cute, and funny....errrr hi everyone - George Smith
Hahahhaha. Omg I am mortified - George, I will never celebrate you losing your job. SORRY. I just HATE those shoes! - Mona Nomura
They are ugly--and they seem like they last forever--we'll still be seeing them around for awhile yet. - Rob Michael (Atmos Trio)
Must pass this on. - Kevin (aka ThreadKilla)
Erin - those look like logger women shoes. - Mona Nomura from IM
Best story ever - when I was interviewed at Crocs, they asked me what I thought of the company. I said I was impressed with their growth but, and I quote "I'm from New York - You'll never see me wearing those ugly shoes." I was hired immediately. I wear Crocs daily - not the iconic ones - but all our other shoes. I don't like some stuff we do, hate others, and am completely passionate about the ones I love. We're not just a one shoe company! ;-) - George Smith
George - I stand corrected Good to know you still have your job! And I LOVE the interview story LOL - Mona Nomura
Whoa. EDIT: +10 George. Good to see you're up and working. - Derrick
No problem. I figured I'd correct you because I knew you'd listen and you're also always online. ha. We are making some cool stuff and I always want to hear what other people WANT. I mean - our consumers are "people with feet." If you don't like what we do, tell us what you want and let us try. Comfort doesn't have to come in swiss cheese shoes. lol - George Smith
hahahha but props to you for being up on your game! - Mona Nomura from IM
Hey - the reason I know you're always online is that I'm always online. That and My patented crocs spidey sense. - George Smith
Mona, not saying you are one, but the fact someone went to the trouble of writing a definition for "croc-o-phobe" says something about the croc wars. :) - Micah
Major props to you George, for being up on your social media game. You epitomize a 'good' community manager. ;) Though I still hate those shoes hahahaha ;) - Mona Nomura
Hey - I don't own a pair with holes. I wear these: or our Flip Flops religiously. I would probably quit if they made me wear the ones with holes on them. I may love working for Crocs, but I like being the real me a lot more. - George Smith
Didn't Crocs acquire Bite Shoes (the running sandals company)? Glad they're not going out of business. - Andrew C (✔)
so long... farewell... good bye..... - Harold
Well I'm going against the grain here and have to say for a long time I was a croc mocker but I had a change of heart when I wore my mates pair fishing on my boat. Yes they look bad and the bright colours suck but talk about the best shoe for walking in the water fishing and grippies shoe for fishing on the boat. For me a sad day to all you hates please spare a though for me when my fishing crocs wear out where do I turn what do I wear suggestion are welcome. 8( - John Spencer from BuddyFeed
@Andrew - yeah we did acquire Bite (they did golf shoes and running sandals). Here's an initial example of the golf shoes: - George Smith
Jason hahahha. Chia pets are 10+ years and still going strong. But you are FUNNY. - Mona Nomura

wait...chia pets are cool. At least the og ones are. I don't know about the new versions of them though - Tamara, #TeamMarina
So what will be the next fad? - Iphigenie
Pope condoms joelle - Steve C, Team Marina
Yeah, I hate that crap! - Susan Beebe
wait, I just saw that George here said that they *aren't* going out of business. so what actually happened? - Kamilah Reed (K. Gill)
They og article said they MIGHT. George said no. So I Tweeted a rumor smash. :) - Mona Nomura from fftogo
Gee... I wear them at work. As a nurse, their great at work. - Sean
All this over some shoes? what the heck people? - Bwana ☠
also? lookie at her shoes - Erin @queenofspain
Nooooooooooooo - Mr K from Nambu
Dru OMG I can't believe it took this long for me to figure out your super long comment. Deleted, btw. And Erin's Hala is an exception. - Mona Nomura
Mona, i LOVE my Crocs :-P my feet are in perfect shape thanks to this brilliant brand, thank you! - Majento
I'm so happy! My wife wears 'em and buys for my youngest as well. I think they are SO ugly. - Herb Hernandez
Goodbye and Good Riddance! - Kyle Judkins
It becomes other people's concerns when WAY too many people that don't take care of their feet expose it for COMFORT. Plus, Crocs colors are atrocious. It's criminal, unless you do it right (like Erin's daughter) - Mona Nomura
but i just saw earlier a pic of a new line of crocs and they looked good :( - chaz2b
Relax, they're not going out of business! This was a rumor that was squashed :) - Mona Nomura
no, i just posted the link i was talkling about, - chaz2b
wooooohooo! - Christian (Simply X)
I hate this world - Bwana ☠
It's true that some of the colors are way off, i only buy black ones & they're cool - Majento
I don't think they will ever go away. Just because you are all hating on them doesn't change the fact that they rock. And wall mart will always sell knock off crocs because they can make a killing. Parents love crocs for kids. If Crocs need to reorg to get past relying on debt to operate so be it. - Christian Burns
Lol - I'm so far behind this week!! Glad to see George already dropped by and squashed the rumor - after Crocs saved my feet in Austin @ SxSW (thanks to George) I'm a die-hard fan - and no, not of the old-style Mickey Mouse shoes - but of the cute ones I wore all over down there that no one would've known were crocs except I couldn't help telling everyone! :) - Lucretia Pruitt
I was a "croc-hater" too for awhile. My kids absolutely love them. Personally, I own Nike, Adidas, Prada, Tommy Bahama and Croc flip-flops (normal looking) and the Crocs are by far the most comfortable. - Adam Rogers
I'm with Adam. I don't wear them myself, but my daughter loves them. And if she loves them and can put them on herself (she's 3), they're winners in my book. - Jen (SquirrelGirl)
And like someone above said - they're not going away. There are too many knock-offs for the style to go away. - Jen (SquirrelGirl)
heh. at the horrific prices they charge for original Crocs, I went and shamelessly bought knock-offs at roughly 10% of the price - a whole rainbow collection. my feet love them when I go malling. I save my original Hush Puppies for the times I need to put up an "image" for other people. =) - Starshadow Rivaulx
My kids love them. I do not. To each, their own. - Martha

There's No Way Twitter Is Worth $250 Million Today -
dude u need to lay off the gerber peaches :) good concept tho i like it - next time let me do the "nay" and you do the "yay" lol - Allen Stern
*yawn* -- deeply appreciative of your work louis; however, it's all make believe and always has been make believe; so as i blustered earlier it's the PROCESS that is broken. the entire silicon valley vc community is one big Social Network Poster Child for Group Think Cronyism. i doubt Jeffrey Skilling used the words "get it" vs "don't get it" more than the Sand Hill lot. #broken #fail - michael silverton
Allen, we can do point/counterpoint any time. But I bet you end up being the "counter" more than I do. - Louis Gray
Okay. So you did point counterpoint. But what you said at the end of your first post, "but at the end of the day, I would be investing", gives away which is your real post and which is your post playing devil's advocate. - Gregg H.
im always the counter, never the countee - Allen Stern
That said, Gregg, I said in the first that I would ask many questions, and in the second that one should exercise extreme caution. Of course, it'd be wonderful in the first place to have enough cash to be courted. - Louis Gray
Clever, LG! - Mona Nomura
Two drafts? Louis, you know we love you but I think you've done a Scoble overdose or something .... Can't wait to see how this plays out if you leave them both up. (Pretty weird stuff coming from you?!). - Charlie Anzman
Don't you get it folks? This is what happens to people who have twins ;~) - Ed Shahzade /NextInstinct
Louis, haven't had time yet, but if it says what I think, remember; they're not investing for 'today'. - Ed Shahzade /NextInstinct
Charlie, both posts are staying up. There is a definite case to be made for both sides. I want Twitter, FriendFeed and others to succeed, and I am always biased and bullish in favor of the tech sector. That said, I think now is a hard time for anybody to raise money and get strong value. - Louis Gray
And Ed... the twins are a major reason why I've been "quiet" this weekend. Had them practically all day yesterday and most of today. (Including now) I had a break from 6-7 so ... back to back. - Louis Gray
Louis, you can ask the questions. But Twitter won't have any good answers. And to all those wondering about Twitter's super secret plan for a business model. Sorry to kill the mystery, but there is no secret plan. It's advertising, gobs and gobs of advertising, with a healthy dose of data mining sold to marketers. - Gregg H.
I can understand Louis. I often had my 1st 2 like that when they were infant and 2. Different needs, but non stop, and not sleepers. What I'd give to go back for 1 day... - Ed Shahzade /NextInstinct
Still think you should have given Matthew and Sarah the byline for the second piece ... By the way Good week my friend .... - Charlie Anzman
I'd counter that. There's no way it's NOT worth $250mm - Bob Walsh
in many respects, twitter is perhaps akin to an application-layer arpanet: it's Too Useful and Promising to Die. in addition to w/e other sugary glaze attributed to it, it's also become a public utility, a substrate for extended, augmented social cognition. there are all kinds of vitally positive & powerful human and technological advances that the market would gleefully earmark for infanticide. i understand the anomie & existential angst of the industrial capitalist vc's; i just have no compassion for it. - michael silverton
Bob, if that's your take, then this approach is more your style. - Louis Gray
@Greggish: Inside info there? If that's the case ... Twitter is going nowhere fast. SocNet CPMs are abysmal, major CPGs (aka Clorox) don't want to purchase in the space and most CMOs are sick of Web 2.0 (and yes, that matters since they have the purse strings.) If I were a potential investor I'd tell Twitter to launch the alpha/beta version of ads so I could see the trajectory. That Twitter doesn't do this ... speaks volumes IMO. - AJ Kohn
@louisgray can't go wrong here - and I agree that Twitter is more useful than Google on breaking news. - Mike Reynolds

Yang’s Stepping Down Adds $1.8 Billion To Yahoo’s Market Cap
"Jerry Yang is the $1.8 billion man. The stock market thinks Yahoo is worth that much more without Yang at the helm. That’s approximately how much the market capitalization of Yahoo’s stock went up this morning, with the first trade after last night’s announcement that Yang would be stepping down as CEO. The shares were up nearly 12 percent in early morning trading. They opened at $11.94, compared to a close of $10.63 last night. (The $1.31 difference X 1.4 billion shares outstanding = $1.83 billion)" - ~C4Chaos from Bookmarklet

@Tad: 1) Customer is a dunce to wait 30 minutes for service. At 10 minutes they should have found a server and demanded service or gotten up and walked out. 2) Why take it out on a likely over-worked and under-paid server. Does that person deserve to clean up a juvenile mess? Find a manager and complain like an adult. 3) Get snarky with servers and you will not like what's in your food.

@Alan People see what they want to see. You apparently want to see Martial Law and those evil NWO people taking over and therefore are posting links to support your statement. - Ben Jackson from twhirl
What would ever make you think that I want to see martial law? Perhaps you should turn the lens of "confirmation bias" back on yourself? On the contrary, and even to support "confirmation bias", I believe that most Americans do not believe that martial law could ever happen here and I am simply pointing out the laws and policies that are already in place, and that most people are unaware of, which could make it very possible for martial law to be declared in America, so that people can be more informed. - Alan Cheslow
You don't want to see Martial Law. But you want to *see* it in the data available. - Ben Jackson
@Aaron Considering the subversive elements that exist in the US (KKK, Mountain Men, Terror Cells, Yankees Fans), I am kind of disappointed that the ability to do that was illegal in the first place. - Ben Jackson
@Ben, I suspect that you and I are just not going to agree on this, nor change one another's mind. You have yet to provide any reason why anyone should *not* be knowledgeable and concerned about the increasing amount of power that the government, and specifically the executive branch, has to declare martial law either outright or under a euphemism such as a "state of emergency" or "continuity of government plan" - Alan Cheslow
... and the very real danger that these powers can be abused to reduce or revoke our Constitutional and civil rights such as Habeas Corpus. So, can you explain why *you* choose to "see" that there is *no* threat of the government declaring martial law? - Alan Cheslow
@Alan There's always a "threat." I deal in threats and risk. However, there's a lot more likely threats then the evil NWO declaring martial law. We have higher risks of a NBC attack, large-scale environmental disaster, or cyber-terrorism. I think the question is that if someone is going to declare martial law, why are they passing all these fun new ones and not using the existing ones that govern FEMA, etc. The Human mind always wants to see patterns and will often see it in white noise. - Ben Jackson
