A catch phrase will go here soon.

Great podcast…

9/24/2006

TechCrunch did a great podcast Friday with Om Malik and Scoble… great discussion about digg–which Mike loves.

Om said it best, that social news sites are great for everyone. Social news helps the users find great content and helps site owners get found. Om points out that mainstream adoption is key for this trend–I agree, we’re doing it at Netscape and it’s not easy. We’ve got a lot of education ahead of us. Om also points out that the “upcoming” page is the most interesting place on digg.

Netscape devs: We really have to get our upcoming/on deck page finished… right now folks have to just watch the tracker to find stories and it really doesn’t do a great job of showing what’s breaking.

Hello, my name is Jason. Welcome to my blog on the interwebs. You can reach me on twitter @jason and by email at jason@inside.com. My Skype is jasoncalacanis, and my mobile phone is 310-456-4900.

I only pick up numbers I recognize, and in terms of emailing me, the best strategy is to write short, blunt and to the point requests. I can quickly respond to short messages, and many times I simply don't have the time to read five page pitches. In terms of taking meetings, I only do that after reviewing an actual product (not a business plan). So, the best time to ping me is when you have mockups or an alpha site. I don't read business plans, and I've never written one.
