A catch phrase will go here soon.

Will Splenda kill you?

9/27/2006

The image One of the interesting things about a running a social news site is that you get an early warning system about not only breaking news, but also what people care about. Yesterday a story about Splenda from a questionable source made it to the home page. People are alarmed and the story has 36 votes and 42 comments already… our Anchors and Navigators are investigating the story.

It seems a lot of folks are really concerned about Splenda and we’ve mobilized dozens of folks at Netscape (users and staff) to investigate the issue.

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.
