A catch phrase will go here soon.

Congrats to Judith


Congrats to Tina Sharkey for stealing my Judith away from Weblogs, Inc. to work at BabyCenter. Not good for Weblogs, Inc/AOL (I can’t believe they let her leave!!!), but AMAZING for BabyCenter. I guess change is good for everyone. Working for big companies is fun because you have resources, but those same resources have a way of constraining you because you must feed and maintain the machine–and those machines get very big and need much attention. It’s amazing how last year this time we had Bankoff, Miller, Sharkey, Meskill, etc. all at AOL building and a year later everyone is scattered to the four corners of the dotcom world.

But regarding Judith…. Grrrrrrrrrrrrrr…………….. would have liked to take a run at her for Project X!!! :-)

Next time around I guess.

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.
