    i have to give a speech and be part of a panel discussion today 

    two wheel motion

    as you know i dont really like doing those sorts of things, and i’m still a little ill

    but the show must go on

    and its for a good cause: reminding the world that Tony Pierce is still alive

    and a Free Agent, willing and able to help your company rise to the top.

    the centerpiece of my little speech is going to be

    ADAPT OR DIE AND YOU PROBABLY ARE LYING TO YOURSELF ABOUT HOW MUCH YOURE ADAPTING

    i will use sports metaphors like why the Clippers blew away the Lakers this year

    i will use business metaphors like why the Record Industry cannot generate any revenues

    i will use blogging metaphors like why LAist gets more web traffic than KPCC despite having 1/25th of the staff

    i will use other business metaphors like if the Big 3 really truly were about adapting, there would be true GM challenger to the Prius.

    if i really wanted to bring my point home i’d wear a dress but like i said im not feeling 100%

    and im speaking at Idealab so odds are this audience is going to understand what i’m saying without rubbing it in their face

    plus i dont have any shoes that match any of my dresses.

    that are in season.
