OK – I just read the above post and listened to a podcast. It's a bit early to form an opinion, but I liked what I read and heard. Well, what the heck do I know anyway, but I think Jason might be right on most points. My only gripe is that he uses the word “entrepreneur” to describe his job.
OK – Here’s where he and I clash. Jason says:
"Please keep your comments relevant to this blog entry: inappropriate or purely promotional comments may be removed."
When/if you have the time to reply to my blog, you will notice that I don’t have any rules, as evidenced by the void in my sidebar – apart from Robina Hood, who steals from the rich and gives to the poor, but that isn’t a rule as such - just an impulse thing.
Loved the interview/podcast with Fred Vogelstein of Wired Magazine, which he described as fallow or shallow. It’s hard to tell with these podcasts.
Jason has half a flame. He is annoyed that Fred refuses to do email interviews. Jason should be glad of a live interview. Some of the email interviews aren’t real, you know. Some people have minions typing out these pre-recorded email interviews. Heck, I’ve even witnessed a professional thingy interviewing himself on a number of occasions. Who said that? You did. I did? No, I did. “Jason doesn’t need an intermediary” now that he has a blog and he wears long pants.
Fred of Wired says the world is siloed and he hovers above those silos and picks out the best bargains, the mall for the price of a dice, and the free plastic spidermen offered with the maize and hay.
OH. my. GOD !!! Jason "gets 50 interview requests a month”. Is he the President in disguise?
Reminder to self: Must work on my PR/Networking skills soon -- and don't expect me to post this into the comments section of the relevant blog 'cause it isn't my best review of all time.
Something went amiss when I copied and pasted the html link to Jason's linkbaiting appeal. So, in the unlikely event that somebody or a nobody should be Googling himself and he discovers that he has an unsolicited review of his labours, the monies should be directed to this website, whereupon it will be re-directed to the attention-grabbers and the desperately needy.
Thank you for your attention.
