Just finished the new Jack Reacher novel A Wanted Man. Good stuff if you like this sort of thing. Three notes:

1. Ballsy move by Lee Child setting the full first half of the book in a car. It's the equivalent of a TV "bubble episode" but harder than heck to pull off.

2. Child makes Reacher's size a big point of emphasis. This in spite of supporting the decision to have 5'7 Tom Cruise play the 6'5 Reacher in the upcoming movie. 

3. The villain's name is "Peter King." Wonder if Child is an MMQB fan.

Here's why videocasting is not podcasting. Cant wait for +Jason Salas to opine on this one.

That's an awesome solution - but $8,500? Ouch. Still, largely better than most commercial rigs. You're right, of course - video podcasts (a distinct subset of podcasting) didn't last. They were way too technical for most folks to put together, setup and maintain.

The hosting costs alone of storing even short productions at a decent bit rate in the pre-HD days would drive most DIY'ers into the poor house. And then there's the bandwidth of having to serve up constant downloads for the files, which most providers do with burstable plans, meaning customers get a finite amount of transfer data plus the charge extra for every megabyte on top of that. So this is a huge bill.

Leo Laporte figured out a business model for his http://twit.tv network, but that's a rare edge case. :)

It's not getting better. Monetization is job one for Twitter, but this darn well better be near the top of their list if they're going to be able to grow. I'm not sure what the solution is. Trolling as sport is growing, suspensions won't work since they'd just open another account, and it will be overwhelming to police. 
Calls for Twitter to clamp down on so-called "trolls" sending abusive hate messages via the social networking site intensified yesterday after a string of high-profile attacks on famous names includin...

I'm really proud of this article. It's not just the kind of thing that I think needs to be out there to help raise the level of discussion, it's that it's precisely the kind of piece people expected me to not be able to do at Bleacher Report. 

Guess what? I can and I did. Just wait until you see what's coming down the line.

Hearing that Greg Jennings is a no-go for tonight's game. Upgrade Jones a bit, think Cedric Benson is likely the real beneficiary.

Ativ? Dumb name, but what's this mean? Is Samsung subtly shifting to Windows Phone and leaving the copycat stuff behind?

Bartolo Colon's 50 game suspension gives MLB a double-punch. We'll see now whether Victor Conte's numbers are remotely on target. (I don't think they are.) Key fact here is that this has NOTHING to do with Colon's elbow surgery from two years back. I'm sure some people will try to connect the two.

Look at this picture. To me, it doesn't appear that Vick is wearing any sort of rib protection. How can the eagles send him out this way?

Looks like my last comment vanished. Sorry. G+ has been wonky on me the past couple of days. Thanks for the response.

Bleacher Report deal finally done. Can't wait to see the price and what's next for them.
It's a done deal. Now, about that price...

Wow. Especially after Grantland is locking in content creators like The Solid Verbal. Nice move.
