I am proud to say that this is my 600th post. Hard to believe that I have done anything 600 times (but I assure you there are actually 2 things i’ve done this much.)
This whole 600th post thing got me thinking about all the gold I have written and more importantly, can I live up to the past and should I continue to pour my heart out to you on a weekly and sometimes bi weekly basis.
Normally this thought would never pop in to my head but all the recent news of Gary Vaynerchuk scaling back and Geoff Livingston leaving his blog got me wondering if this move is the next big trend in social media?
Gary and Geoff are people I respect a great deal but this post is not about them…it is about Jason Rodriguez. Jason was and is an author, internet pioneer and future restaurant owner. Jason has lived through all incarnations of the internet and there is an urban legend that says he was the inspiration for the Sandra Bullock character in the movie The Net. So knowing all this you can imagine how shocked I was to learn that he is hanging up his wireless mouse and moving on.
This is truly a sad day in internet history.
…and yes this is a joke, a pretty funny one if you ask me 🙂
