Congrats to Daniel Ek for his calm perseverance in getting Spotify to this position. Competes with iTunes with the slickest and most advanced streaming music service I've ever used. And where did he get his catalog? Check out the YouTube demo.
Amazing team. Wenda, Jason, the Partovis, Nat Brown, Sam Wick - all superstars
Renewed energy post-iLike acquisition
Hats off to Media Link, the strategy advisory firm who will continue advising MySpace. Wenda, who will keep both her current post as President of Media Link, as well as become temporary head of MySpace Ad Sales
It's going to be fascinating watching what an all-star team can do to resurrect MySpace's damaged brand.
This is the first time I've had someone spoof a good friend on Chat before. I reported this to Facebook, thinking it was a Facebook chat scam, but then I realized that the chat appeared via Adium, which aggregates my iChat, AIM, MSN Messenger and Facebook Chat profiles. So the source?
I found this to be particularly chilling. Online chat is what I do with my friends. It is the closest thing to a real conversation and because of that, it feels immediate and can feel intimate. A valuable lesson.
