Thanks to everyone who met me for dinner last night: Euan, Adriana, James, Johnnie and Mark.
Everybody there I knew quite well, with the exception of Mark Earls, who I was meeting for the first time.
It was great to meet Mark finally- he’s one of my heroes, thanks to this book. And it turns out he’s been reading gapingvoid for the last year or so.
It was a good crowd. We should do it again soon…
thoughts ‘she loves me’ and ‘don’t screw it up this time’ often go together 😉
There is nothing like an evening out with friends. Definitely rejuvaneting if you get home at a respectable hour and not pickled. (Lord, I hope “pickled” only means drunk and not something erotic in the UK.) Great cartoon and best wishes!
fyi : unless you have been an Amazon.co.uk paying customer, you don’t get access to ‘search inside’ for Mark Earl’s book. Amazon in the UK don’t exchange customer information with Amazon in the US ?
I have not been to your blog for a while.
When I was here before.I spent a lot of time reading some of your longer posts such as the one on creativity.
Just wanted to leave a note that I like the new sidebar treatment you have. Tells a lot more about the site and yourself and it also makes the navigation easier.
Enjoy your blog.
Keep up the good work
Hugh – what’s your opinion on the following snippet from Mashable on the scoop in the NY Times? :-
“Google buys DoubleClick for $3.1 Billion, Microsoft ScrewedCongrats to the NYTimes for scooping the story that Google is proceeding with its rumored acquisition of ad network DoubleClick. The price was $3.1 billion, making this by far Google’s biggest acquisition to date – the YouTube buy looks small by comparison. Also note that this was in cash, while the YouTube deal was stock.
It’s a major, major loss for Microsoft, which is now going to fall even further behind in the ad game at a time when software and “old media” content is moving online in ad-supported form.”
