Listen to the fascinating tale (part 1) of the longest running electronic newsletter in the world, TidBITS. It's been weekly since years before the WWW started! Adam and Tonya are always entertaining and funny. (Part II.)
Another good MacNotables episode, discussing ebooks, part 1 and part II.
(Of course you can also get the free podcast via iTunes.)
I'm realizing that all other things regardless, just *being there* and *staying there* is a very valuable and rare quality, which people like Tonya and Adam have. Most people with imagination have no stick-to-ivity.
Actually years ago a friend asked how long I'd had my site, and I said four years, and he said "so what are you gonna do next?" I said "next? What do you mean?" He said "well, most people I know, when they've done something for a few years, then they move on to something else." I imagine I said: "I have an easy and fun job, earn good money, and I'm my own boss. I should be on medication if I wanted to change that."
This blog is the same. You can come in any day of the week and hang your hat for a few minutes, and I'm here. I only wish I could serve coffee too.
