Breakfast with Sam Sethi
I made sure to include Samâ€™s name in the title to take full advantage of his higher search rank than Britney Spears on Technorati yesterday! This is something for Web2Ireland to be proud of as news of Harrington giving Sam the boot was broken here first and then posted around the globe. Ok, so itâ€™s not as dramatic as I make it sound, but it was, by his own admission, Mr. Arringtonâ€™s worst day ever, so thatâ€™s something else to be proud of.
So, if youâ€™re waiting for Sam to write a post about yesterdayâ€™s news, donâ€™t bother because itâ€™s yesterdayâ€™s news. Or in Samâ€™s words, â€œtodayâ€™s news is tomorrowâ€™s 404â€. He was inspired by the 404 he got after Mike deleted his last post from TechCrunch â€“ I love it!
Anyway, as per the title, I had breakfast with Sam and Daniel Appelquist this morning (Marc Canter cancelled). Dan was one of Samâ€™s guest writers on TC and a very good colleague of mine, not to mention an extremely well connected guy. Naturally I wonâ€™t be divulging anything that was discussed over egg muffins and copious amounts of caffeine.
What I can say, is watch this space as some thought goes into the new brand identityâ€¦ Iâ€™ll be certain to break the news here (or over at my own staff blog assuming I take it off the dev server!).
