A catch phrase will go here soon.

Perez Hilton is speculating–like everyone is thinking–that Brittany
Murphy died of an overdose http://bit.ly/8WRPz4

Interesting that Gawker and Perez will just say what everyone is
thinking, but CNN, and even TMZ, will not report on the obvious
possibilities. We live in real time, and the speculation on Twitter
and the blogs is that she was anorexic and addicted to drugs. Is that
true? I have no idea…. but I do think that main stream news needs to
get over the “we can’t speculate” rule. Everyone is speculating in
public and in real time. CNN is well within their right to report on
what blogs and twitter folks are saying.

    I disagree, I go to sites like Perez Hilton for gossip and
    speculation, cnn for (hopefully) researched and factual
    news stories, it’s nice to have a choice.

    As a sidenote I like the new mahalo design but what’s the
    deal with mahalos failure to link to sites these days?
    Even on the Perez Hilton’s page and the mahalo page for
    his website there is no link to his actual site, annoying!

    That’s why there is news and there are gossip bloggers. Just because some schmuck with an Internet connection has a voice doesn’t mean that they’re saying anything worth hearing, let alone accurate.

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.

Other twitter accounts you can follow: Inside.com, Ticker, This Week in Startups and LAUNCH Festival
