    So uber-famous-corporate-blogger-ninja-rockstar Jerimiah Owyang blogged about The Golden Age of Tech Blogging being over. His colleague, my friend, Brian Solis doesn’t agree. Lots of other people are yakkin’ about it as well, it seems. I guess that’s a good thing. Here are my thoughts:
    1. Time to quote Shirky YET AGAIN: “So for­get about blogs and blog­gers and blog­ging and focus on this — the cost and dif­fi­culty of publishing abso­lu­tely anything, …  show all text

    That’s right. We’re at the end of an important period. The tech blogosphere as we know it, is over.
    Four Trends Show the End of this Era: Like the film industry, the Golden Era is the emergence period, when fresh innovation in a new medium is born. New techniques, revolutionary content, and different business models emerge as innovators pioneer a new medium. I first had this discussion with Chris Saad, which triggered some thinking on my end. I asked some of the foremost tech blogger of  their …  show all text
  • GoDaddy: A glimpse of the Internet under SOPA – David Rusenko
    This story has never been told, and it’s incredibly important to tell it today; it’s a perfect example of what might come to be if SOPA becomes law — a shoot first, question later mentality held by GoDaddy. Want to know what the world would be like under SOPA? Read on. Sometime in 2009, Weebly was starting to gain momentum. We hadn’t yet achieved the scale we have today, but we were hosting a couple million websites — certainly a decent size by any measure. We registered weebly.com with GoDa…  show all text

LEGO was one of my favorite things growing up because you can quickly change things around if you don’t like the build.

I’ve always wanted to make a stop motion movie with LEGO. Minifigs, the scale and the snap together nature of LEGO lends itself naturally to this process.

I was recently given this kit and as it included 4 mini-figs I thought it would be fun to make a movie. While it was really fun to do it does take a ton of patience.

Enjoy.

    – Michael Arrington
    TechCrunch CEO Heather Harde announced her departure today.
    I’m so angry.
    Drift back to the end of 2006. TechCrunch was a year and a half old. My hobby had turned into a business. Federated Media was selling our standard ads and sent a small check every month. Nik Cubrilovic had “invented” the notion of a 125 pixel square ad that we’d sell for a flat rate, which was an unqualified success and was quickly copied by everyone else. We had enough money to have a staff, and things were looking pretty  show all text

    The House Judiciary Committee considering whether to send the Stop Online Piracy Act to the House floor abruptly adjourned Friday with no new vote date set — a surprise given that the bill looked certain to pass out of committee.
    The committee’s chairman and chief sponsor of the legislation, Rep. Lamar Smith (R-Texas), agreed to further explore a  show all text
