I don’t really watch much TV and I watch even less current affairs but lately I keep been pointing me to the Charlie Rose show. Now there’s a fellow who understands how the Web works. Or at least he seems extremely interested.
Case in point: Mitch Joel is really digging into how traditional print media is dying due to the changes brought about by the Web. He pointed me to a recent Charlie Rose episode with the CEO of the Associated Press and Arianna Huffington, where they describe to wildy different futures for journalism and aggregators of journalism.
Thanks to Mitch Joel for pointing me to the Andreeson interview too. Maybe if you don’t have time to watch Charlie Rose, you should just go read Mitch’s blog. He’ll let you know the best stuff to watch!
[Damn! I can't get any consistency with the embedded video. Sorry about that. Check the link to the Charlie Rose site for a larger view]
Not sure if it made the local paper but those kooky funsters at Apple have announced a new cellphony/music player/web surfer thingy. It got a little bit of press on cable.
Honestly, I was worried that I would end up as the only blogger who didn’t post about the iPhone announcement. But then I couldn’t figure out how to market the fact that I didn’t post about iPhone without posting about iPhone. It started to make my head hurt. I’m glad that’s finally been resolved.
What I found most interesting was how the CEO of Cingular got skewered for being such a poor presenter. I guess style matters, at least when you’re on the stage with the Grand Master himself, Steve Jobs. I’ll be watching my own executive’s performances with a new set of filters from here on out.

It makes me giddy just thinking that one of my posts may one day show up on the same screen as Seth Godin or Doc Searls. OK, it’ll likely only be on my own reader, but I can dream, can’t I?
