"We’re still doing the same stuff we did 40,000 years ago. The big difference is that everything is faster now."
Biz Stone [, genius]
wrote a lovely foreword for my book
. Biz is a rock star, you see, so having him write a few pages for my lowly book is A Big Deal for marketing folks. Biz works at Odeo
now, with Evan Williams, Noah Glass, and other select ubergeeks. Evan (and friends) started Blogger, which Google then bought; Biz (and friends) started Xanga, then he went on to Blogger as well, then to Odeo. Noah Glass is the fellow behind Audioblogger. Rock stars, all of 'em.
To understand the title of this post, and to understand why I am now confirming that indeed I am not a large, mustachioed Alsatian man, you'll just have to buy the book. Or, walk past it in the bookstore/library and read the forward...whatever works.
