Dissecting A Week 2

Let's look back again this week starting from the earliest:
I'm still not sure what to think of being fans and friends of fellow bloggers. It is odd. I don't see myself on the same plane as many of the other bloggers, but that's me. Do well written folks see themselves on the same plane as others? I doubt it, thus how do you move beyond being fans? It would be easy if people were close to each other and saw each other on a regular basis yes? Just like any other networker, but that's not quite the case here. Just because you read someone else's blog and comment and perhaps even banter back and forth does not make you much more than consumer's of each other's verbiage does it?
My blog is a mishmosh, I know. I've contemplated starting several and spacing out my writing accordingly, but do I have the wherewithal to do so? The title was funny to me at the time, but seems a bit arrogant in retrospect. But I am trying to keep to my own gut on what I write. The ultimate in ONLY writing for yourself.
This was a cheapie, but what the heck. I really did like sharing learning what he was talking about. I'm trying to emulate him but not sure how to on each front just yet. But that's the point of most these types of posts, ain't it? To try to achieve the model or at least find one.
I am still very fascinated by the geolocation thing. So far, I see nothing of value beyond the venues themselves. This dustup between Chipotle and 4SQ was quickly over. Facebook is just too much a behemoth. Is LBS going to be as big as everyone is saying? Not unless the venues start adopting bigger and faster.
This almost feels like an overreaction, but based on a few of the comments I've heard back, I don't think so. I am still curious, who did you USED to listen to that you don't listen to anymore?
Ok, this was a gimme.
I find some of my better thoughts arrive quick and out of no where. Those kind of "wondering" moments or when I ask a question that sounds like something my five year old asks. Thank god for Google that those "why is the sky blue" questions are easily answered. I have them all the time and I think/hope that is a good sign for me.

Slow Death or Rebirth for Myspace?

  Are we really watching the slow inevitable death of Myspace? With the integration with Facebook complete and  the push towards what appears to be a mobile only function , isn't it time to call this one? One report says that Myspace is making $200 million less this year. They are functionally giving up on Myspace Music , which was always their bread and butter. Without the music tie in, why would people BOTHER with Myspace? I'm talking about it because my wife's band has used every medium known to mankind to promote themselves online and Myspace has been nothing but dead weight from the very beginning. Only bands and their most ardent fans go there. The rest are on Facebook.  There is talk of selling Myspace, but who in their right mind would consider it? This will have some interesting implications for bands down the road. Many use Myspace as their de facto website, just pushing their domain name onto the customizable site. Now apparently, Reverbnation , a North Carolin

New Life

  It's weird, sad and slightly freeing. I've been headed towards a completely different life for a lot longer than I even knew. It took me a while to catch up to realize it was happening.  Thankfully, I was cognizant enough to see it finally and mostly ready for it. It's amazing when you have the rug completely pulled out from underneath you. The adjustments are jarring.  I made mistakes, but like most I learned from them, adapted, and tried my best to do better. The reason you see that truck next to a storage place? That's the sum of my life right now.  Never take for granted that you will work hard for something or someone, and it will end up meaning very little. You are guaranteed nothing, owed nothing, promised nothing. Anything and everything can be taken away in a heartbeat.  I wrote this to my kids a while back: I tried to be the best father I could be based on what I knew when I knew it and how I could. One of the lessons for your life needs to be: you need to b
