Overstock.com = Subpoena's.com

I see this morning that Overstock.com restates for 4 years. Even I could see that coming from gleaning the news the last year. Their leader Patrick Byrne is crazy. It is well documented including my blog during the last three months. So they issue subpoena’s to Herb Greenberg and Jim Cramer. Not that I am …

My Space – pleaaaaase

So I have been reading that the MY Space founders or board is suing News Corp for underpaying on the $600 million buyout. Note to News Corp – give it back to them. If there ever was a brand that was paid $600 million for more complete crap, please tell me. I am old and …

New York

The best city no doubt! Some free wireless would be nice by the way. The Whole Foods store in the Time Warner building is awesome as is the Mandarin Oriental Hotel in the upper floors of the same building. Funny – all these great brands in the corporate headquarters of the lamest brand – Time …

Cool Blogs

One day soon I will take the time to figure out how to do a blogroll. In the meantime, a cool blog I have been reading – www.chartreuse.wordpress.com. Some funny stuff about brands and marketing, stuff that I love.

GPS, GPS, GPS

Lojack, Sirf, Garmin, Trimble. These are four plays on the growth of GPS and as an extension, asset protection. I like both and although no leader in these combined industries has emerged, if you want to participate in the growth of GPS, you should consider these. I have written about all four in the past …

Silicon Valley

The energy is really something else. If you are of high school age in Palo Alto, you are chatting about internet deals. I had the pleasure of watching a few 20 somethings present their web application businesses today and their poise and confidence is astounding. It is hard not to get wrapped up in their …

Mashup Camp

Out in Mountain View for the first Mashup Camp where I have bumped into some of the most energistic and smart internet entrepreneurs and investors on the planet. Next to GolfNow.com, edgeio.com and eventful.com looked to be the coolest. Not far behind is flyspy.com. Tonight we had a chance to present GolfNow.com to fellow internet …

Tech Crunch party

A very interesting group of people. The coal miners of the 21st century. Why does CNN and specifically Lou Dobbs take such a simplistic approach to outsourcing. Jobs moved from cities like Pittsburgh to California. Eventually all humans will follow the sun anyway. At least those that have a choice. The people that start tech …
