Greg has started calling our group of connected blogs a keiretsu, after the Japanese cross-industrial conglomerate. I guess that’s the only way to describe that circle: a programming MBA deep in the software world (me), two Southern Democratic political bloggers, and a financial analyst and poet. It’s too bad the era of corporate megamergers gave “synergy” a bad name, because you’d hope there would be some in that random combination of assets.
Anyway, looking out over my keiretsu to catch up:
- Greg is quoting Fonda about the problem of uninsured children (“For the Republicans, life begins at conception and ends at birth”) and getting linked by Tony Pierce and a bunch of other folks.
- Esta is reflecting on Moxie’s singledom and her own, busting my chops over our new yellow room, and talking about Greg talking about Anil Dash talking about depression. (So here’s a question that no one raised directly: what about the effect on your work relationships if you talk about your depression on your blog?)
- George is going through the car buying cycle with Becky (a car that has two windshield wipers), and thinking about a school blog. It could be cool, but it could be like starting up any other community. You have to have people and you have to have beer (metaphorically speaking). Maybe once I start my new site I’ll set up a page that incorporates RSS feeds from all of us Sloan bloggers.
- Adam is cramming for school, networking with my old buddies in Sloan Entrepreneurs, and name-checking Ken Morse (it happens to the best of us, Adam).
- Jay is writing about indifferent people and job searching. (Including, I suppose, friends who are remiss in blogrolling other friends, an omission I’ve just rectified.)
- Craig is pointing to Robert Flores’s suicide note from the U. of Arizona shootings.
- Stiz is quoting the Post on Mondale and talking about snow in DC.
- Brent is looking for developers to read his upcoming MacTech article.
- Anita is looking for flu shot locations in King County.
Me? I still have a cold and I need sleep. I was at work until 9:30 tonight and I have a long day tomorrow. Talk amongst yourselves. 🙂
