Spot DJ

So you always wanted to be a radio DJ? (I did. Anyone who knows me knows I’ve been one, and still do a little annoucing now and then.) I just met the Spot Dj guys at the Web 2point2 event, and I’m excited.

Spot DJ is a plugin to iTunes that plays YOUR music, and mixes in ‘spots’ or small audio clips from people who know about the music and whose small clips add value to your experience. You know, like radio used to do, in the old days when DJs knew the bands they played and were able to play what they thought you’d like.

Additionally, if you know something about the bands you love and the songs you listen to, you can cut your own spots. People vote on the value of the spots so stupidity and self-promotion are voted out of the rotation.

I can’t wait to play with this.

Ross Rubin, I salute you

Fun with Ross, my old Cornell buddy, who takes “Who’s on First” to a new level with the HP controversy. A small sample:

 Lou: Ah, then maybe you can help sort it all out for me. Now, the person who used to be HP’s chairman, what’s her name?
Bud: Dunn.

Lou: What do you mean, done? You didn’t tell me!

Bud: I just did. Dunn!


Guess where I won’t be shopping?

My cousin David found this store on his visit to Prague. In case you don’t know what it means, here’s a list of Yiddish phrases.


To everything there is a season…

And now it’s fall. October. The leaves are turning. And they’re playing baseball in Queens. Hell yeah! Let’s go METS!

Happy One Web Day

Sorry I couldn’t make it to One Web Day. I’m home with a sinus thing and bad or no voice (depending on how recently I drank hot tea).
But I made a video to celebrate One Web Day.
