Re: dot coma – Are Domain Names Even Relevant Now? - http://www.convinceandconvert.com/digital...
"Love the heated debates on here. Branding is a serious and passionate matter. Yes, everyone agrees having the dot com domain is ideal but it's almost impossible these days to get it unless you come up with a totally jacked up new word or have deep pockets to pay domain squatters a small ransom. That's why I like the hot trend of using alternative TLD like .me, .co and others. Some day the extensions won't matter at all." - paisano

Re: Andy Baio (@waxpancake) on death of Upcoming (he founded it 10 | LAUNCH - http://launch.co/story...
"Yahoo has done this too many time (almost as often as Google) Remember how they destroyed Delicous? The once former king of bookmarks favorites and links. They let it die on the vine for years. I wrote some scathing pieces about this fiasco years ago while it was happening for former yahoo employee Sarah Lacy for her blog. Search for once delicious now stale. They eventually sold it to the former founders of YouTube As for upcoming yahoo let that languish and die too It was the plancast of its day and should have become eventbright But they Did not take advantage of another great acquisition They could have been the destination for links and events They totally wet the bed there I also think they screwed up with Flickr Though it still has a big userbase it is not Because of anything yahoo has done with flickr It should have gone mobile and become Instagram Or they should have acquired them and merged with flickr" - paisano

Re: Seven Gripes About the Differences Between The Silver Linings Playbook Book and Movie - http://tastelikecrazy.com/2013...
"Thanks for the awesome comparison. I only watched the movie and I loved it but I can see why you feel the way you do. I still plan to read the book eventually. I don't have the same rule to read the book first, on the contrary, because I love movies so much I prefer to watch the bastardization first and then read the almost always superior incarnation of the story. To me it's like comparing apples to oranges though so it's not fair to do this anyway. Movies based on books should always say "influenced or inspired by such and such book". It is fascinating how much a story changes from the page to the screen. I can't remember too many times when it's better in film. Can you name some? Of hand I would say "Somewhere in Time" was superior to the book named "Bid Time Return" originally but renamed over the years to match the famous movie by Richard Matheson (who wrote the screenplay too). Oddly enough, I can say the same thing about Matheson's other book turned to film "What Dreams May..." - paisano

Re: Ep 24- The Age of Artisanal Publishing with Guy Kawasaki - http://humanbusinessworks.com/radiosh...
"Oh you stuck the landing all right. Most interviews where the interviewer has read the book get lost on one of two points that resonated with them but you were able to focus on the general theme and concept of the subject matter which was perfect in this case. Loved it." - paisano

"I use Rebelmouse (well, not enough actually but I have an account). Thanks for letting me know. Megan did awesome job. I used to use a wordpress plugin called LifeStream that did something like this but not nearly as well and not on the home page. I think this is the wave of the future... everything we do from many platforms filtered back to your home page which should be ground zero to your brand or who you are. Well done, my friend." - paisano

"Awesome. I think it will be happening all over the web. I am hoping Google will realize this and make G+ a true commenting system that connects the web-o-sphere directly into its search engine...pure SEO magic. They finally hooked up its own Blogger platform to G+ so I think it's coming soon. They need to buy Disqus already." - paisano

Re: The Commenting Game - http://casiestewart.com/the-com...
"The fine art of commenting is dying the long slow death that letter writing experienced. I think the only thing that can save it is if more blogs connect the commenting system to one of the big platforms like Facebook, Google Plus, twitter, etc. I used to love Disqus because it made it easier to connect accounts and allow people to comment without having to create yet another login account to manage... but most folks don't even want to create or join Disqus so the blogs that experience the most comments (like TechCrunch) are the ones that connect with one of the big social networks (Facebook in their case)" - paisano

Re: The most promising Israeli startups for 2013 - http://thenextweb.com/insider...
"No one is better qualified than Orli to write such a run-down of all the amazing startups from the Silicon Valley of the Middle East. I am always stunned by the amount of slick stuff coming from there. I'm trying to do the same thing here in Atlanta...to become the Silicon Valley of the South. Israel has proven to the world that everything doesn't have to revolve around San Francisco! It should always revolve around us...people." - paisano

Re: Huffington Post brings home the blogosphere’s first ever Pulitzer | VentureBeat - http://venturebeat.com/2012...
"This is great news for all blogs and bloggers. I've always argued with haters who never give respect to the craft of blogging because they think somehow just because anyone can start a blog that it means anyone can write well. Hogwash. A good blogger is a good writer...period. Just because someone is a traditional journalist doesn't mean they're a good writer either. It's all about the story anyway." - paisano

He will only go on to bigger and better things. I'm excited to see what he does next." - paisano

Re: Hacker News vs. Google+ - http://scobleizer.com/2012...
"agree with Robert here. Anonymity brings out the slugs and trolls from the rocks and bridges they usually hide under. Also identified by the way they wince at the sunlight.  Of course I don't mean to generalize. I know a bunch of intelligent folks who prefer to remain anonymous and they are not trolls. Just in general I've experienced bad things when it comes to comments that allow fake identities... look at YouTube for goodness sakes. I need to take a shower after reading the comments there. Google should be ashamed of itself for letting that mess grow like a fungus for years. They need to replace youtube comments with G+ already." - paisano
