    you guys know that im a dumbass right? k, good. 

    so when i left the house i packed my mac, my ipod, my camera. pretty much everything except my power cord for my computer. so i see i have 33% of my battery left so i will make this short.

    mr brown sent me to kinkos to make flyers for our party tonight. it was the kinkos near madison square garden. they were packed. they didnt seem to want to help tony pierce so i threw marcs name in there and they were all, so.

    kinkos likes to take your credit card and keep it in their credit card reader as long as youre there. its an interesting way of doing business that doesnt take in account things like their printer running out of paper. the card machine just keeps taking money out of your credit card.

    after about an hour and a half i had 80 little handout fliers and all was well. the whole time i kept thinking that i would have failed if this was the Apprentice. it was nice being outside and as much as i like this conference because EVERYTHING is about blogging and therefore right up my alley, new york is right outside and this city is definately fun being in the middle of.

    when i got back to the copa they were serving lunch. chicken or veal sir? a little of both please. marc and i sat next to a lovely woman named dolly who does internet radio, and we sat next to a pleasant fella from yahoo.

    marc got on him because the new yahoo blog search only returns flickr photos and not all photos. he was all, that would be like if you went to Google and all they returned were blogspot blogs. nobody would use that search engine again.

    the dude was clearly not involved in that aspect of yahoo and i decided to play good cop and ask him if he knew jeff mcmanus and he said no.

    little yellow different?


    it was then i realized he was a spy and i put a bug on his collar when i shook his hand. we will be tracking his every move in a few minutes.

    during lunch the vp of technorati spoke. he gave a really good little deal because it was some powerpoint but some video and he was funny and it was an interesting topic with the theme being that the blogosphere is One Giant Brain. in the old days people were afraid of computers taking over, that they would think. nowadays corporations are afraid of bloggers telling the world that they suck. etc. so this guy was basically saying that those who are scared have a right to be scared but they still should figure out what to do in this new world where the Giant Brain will accept mistakes if theyre acknowledged and the corps can learn from the Brain as to what the solution should be.

    the blogosphere is full of assholes i mean opinoins, so you should ask them more often.

    i cleaned my plate but marc just poked at his.

    afterwards i met mena from six apart and then we had desert.

    now a dude from mcdonalds is speaking about the mcdonalds blog. who knew they had one? oh… its an internal one.

    ok 25% so im out.
