Me either, but it's nice to meet someone else who used to live in Champaign 😉 Did you ever eat at Garcia's Pizza?

Started watching TNT in January and it's really a fantastic show! +Mike Elgan it's great to see you in the studio. I guess I mostly listen live to the show at work so it wouldn't affect the experience for me too much, but is the plan for you (Mike) to start traveling around again next year or is that still TBD?

+Mike Elgan love the show and listen live when I can but sometimes my schedule is too packed. Any interest or possibility in having a weekly recap show 40-50 minutes featuring the best interviews and top stories of the week?

TNT, TN2, TNW. I'd watch them all.

I think who ever sent this letter is more than a little self-righteous. Most of the comments on the article seemed to support the letter. Thoughts?

My friend Gaurav was doing some research on how to define poverty. Wonder if he has any interesting results or if he'll ever sign-up for Google+?
Ken McIntyre writes on NRO: When Americans think of poverty, we tend to picture people who can’t adequately shelter, clothe, and feed themselves or their families. When the Census Bureau defines “pove...

G+ / FB / MySpace Parody :-) Takes awhile to get goin' :) Sorta a video version of the comic I shared a few days ago. Update: Some people reacted to this post by suggesting I'm eager to see Zuckerberg / Facebook go down. You're not reading my posts at all if you think that. As I've started a few times, Mark has always been a gentleman to me, and I admire what he's done, and am looking forward to what he will do. The competition between G+, Twitter and Facebook will make all three companies better. Who wins? Us, the users. Did Facebook even have a "status update" before Twitter? FB grew and became better because of that competition. And as for me, my ownership of MySpace was sold in the initial 2005 sale not in the recent fire sale (see previous post). From my perspective, I'm grateful and feel lucky both for the money I made and the long run MySpace did have (I left in early 2009).
