+Brad Feld well technically you're replying to a social notification from within inside an inbox, which is what I do often too; its not the same as using email to create and continue conversations. But I'm really not trying to convince and by the sounds of it you have plenty of experience; I'll just say that the points raised in the video are valid and I find them to be worth reviewing; also see the comments (and replies) from Alan on the YouTube comment stream.

Or just ignore the whole thing and enjoy your weekend :)

Nice chatting.

I was fortunate to spend an hour with a group of about 30 people and Tom Wheeler, the chairman of the FCC yesterday morning. It was a super interesting and stimulating conversation that preceded an excellent speech that Wheeler gave on his Net Neutrality proposal. Go read it and ponder it. It’s in English (not... Read more
