I feel energized today... I can't say it was a great day, but somehow the events of the day conspire to make me restless, like, I have to do something. I'm back from Seattle, but immediately drove down to Vista for meetings, and later had a nice dinner with my friend/colleague Nick, and then a nice bike ride as the sun was setting, down from Solana Beach into La Jolla...
Gerard Vanderleun has pictures of the Seattle Tea Party yesterday. Wow, I was there, I could have gone... and actually I almost met Gerard; we got as far as exchanging email, but I'd already made other plans... seems like this tea party thing has legs, people are mad as hell and they aren't going to take it anymore.
Dave Winer: random thoughts over morning coffee. One of his most though-provoking posts in a long time. I follow some bloggers for news, and some for entertainment, but I follow Dave because he makes me think. It is clear that he likes what Twitter was, but not what it has become.
Ann Althouse: Smile for a longer lasting marriage. Okay :)
Decision time for Facebook: Term sheet received at $2B valuation. For those not keeping scoring at home, that is slightly lower than the $15B valuation at which they took money from Microsoft. I don't see how they can take that without either compensating Microsoft or making them look bad, or both.
