Hey Kimmie - can I email you about something I want your opinion on? Because I trust your taste.

Nice - talent can come from anywhere! Do you do this for yourself or for an audience? Are you happy either way?

Congrats on being bold. Looking forward to seeing the surprises you'll launch in 2010. Check out Catch a Piece of Main at http://www.catchapieceofmaine.com/ for something similar to Shiny Maine Lobster. My friend helped to develop that site so your post reminded me of it immediately. I'm sure you have much more up your sleeve. The things you did at AOL sounds outstanding.

Thanks Laura for doing something so meaningful and generous! I also appreciate your comment about designers falling in love with the design before the core concept is developed. I encounter that quite a lot. I've been finding great value reading your blog.

Martin, Thanks for visiting our blog. I visited Corsum's website in turn and was delighted to read your short bio. What a great track record! I love the language you use on the website. Happy to see a real practitioner teaching entrepreneurship to students. Cheers, Allan Young www.allantyoung.com On Fri, Sep 11, 2009 at 12:25 PM, wrote:

I had to start a new collection of books in the East Village - which makes my move back a windfall for the United States Postal Service - but yes that many and much more already waiting for me in San Francisco. No one believes me San Francisco has ghettos!

If you fill in the space between the beams with panels, that's what my place in New York looks like! I lust after that squat table since I have a flimsy glass one. Alas, my days in New York are done for now. I have to return to San Francisco where I've never lived outside of the ghetto...

Jon - Congrats on graduating. I'm sorry I missed you and Susan on your last days, I didn't know you both left early. I got a chance to say goodbye to everyone else at Seth's house during the pizza party. You've got a ton to offer to the world and I'll be one of your biggest cheerleaders going forward (I'm saying this to all our fellow SAMBA grads but it is so true). I'm grateful we got a chance to learn from Seth and I'm sure everyone will change the world for the better. Cheers!

I'm going to have to check out your Promiscuous Idea. Sounds like a unique take on marketing. Thanks for mentioning or linking to my post. Question: How does a company find and separate truly good talent that understands social networks from self-proclaimed "social gurus" that know just an iota more than the average business about social media and marketing?

Joseph - thanks for the mention. Your examples of successful adaptations of news for the Web are spot on. I think that the most appropriate manner of Web news consumption would be the "old" PointCast model. We are so overwhelmed and inundated with data and information overload that we ought to just be streaming news somehow. Then we can click or expand on a streaming item if we're interested. I think that is one of the attractions of Twitter, it allows us to just passively watch a stream of bite-sized content and only get engaged when we feel compelled. Your understanding of tribes, content, and value is going to be very important for business clients going forward. Thanks!
