Tweet Follow me Carol Bartz, Ev Williams, Biz Stone, originally uploaded by @Twitter. In this photo from Twitter on Flickr, we have Yahoo’s CEO Carol Bartz With Twitter’s Founders Ev Williams and Biz Stone. Now, judging from the fact that Ev’s holding a mic and crossing his right leg, can we conclude he’s imitating TechCrunch Editor Michael Arrington’s infamous interview of Bartz at TechCrunch Disrupt, New York? At any rate, there’s no word of what the three talked about while...

Tweet Follow me If we want to go about changing the ratio of women, and let’s add minorities, in tech, we have to be willing to encourage friends and talk to the kids. The idea for this blog post started because this blogger happened on TechCrunch Editor Michael Arrington’s post called Too Few Women In Tech? Stop Blaming The Men. After consuming his text, it must be said that Michael is just plain wrong – the reasons why, we’ll get into later.  Moreover, his post mentioned Rachel...

Tweet Follow me The AngelGate controversy, borne of a faux PlanCast meeting at Bin 38 that was a joke and a play on the real issue of the struggle for control pitting angel investors against entrepreneurs who create the very platforms and devices at the center of the conflict, has caught the attention of The Wall Street Journal. Trouble is, WSJ Blogger Russell Garland didn’t realize the meeting was fake: AngelGate, as it’s become known, just won’t go away. The brouhaha erupted after TechCrunch founder...

Tweet Follow me The Stanford Cardinal Football Team is as dominant as their commercials would imply. It’s not just that they’re 4 and 0, and for the first time since 1986, but how they got there, by destroying their opponents. The latest victim: The Fighting Irish of Notre Dame. Stanford spanked Notre Dame 37 to 16, causing the Irish to lose their third straight game under new coach Brian Kelly and causing Irish fans to worry. Over at Irish Envy forum, ND die-hards picked Stanford as a team the Irish...

Tweet Follow me ESPN’s “guest picker” Picabo Street got it right after all. Number one ranked Alabama rallied to beat 10th ranked Arkansas 24 to 20. And this blogger, along with over 76,000 people at Razorbacks Stadium, thought the game was over, even when Alabama scored to make it 20 to 14 in the 3rd quarter. Just shows you that it’s never a good idea to walk away from the television set with a game like that. According to ESPN.com, Alabama rallied to win on the power and speed of Running...

Tweet Follow me UPDATE: WSJ takes the bait! TechCrunch Disrupt SF is this week, and while this blogger will be out of the San Francisco Bay Area for personal reasons, what happens there will not escape Zennie62.com. So far the talk of Pre-TechCrunch Disrupt SF news isn’t that Barry Diller’s coming, or that MC Hammer’s the entertainment, but that news item called AngelGate. AngelGate is a meeting between Angel Investors that took place in an alternative universe, at a popular San Francisco Marina...

Tweet Follow me Picabo Street has been the top search on Google Trends for most of Saturday as she was the “guest picker” on ESPN’s College Gameday Show from Boise. Street, the well-decorated former Olympic skier, picked Alabama to beat Arkansas in today’s game. So far, Picabo’s wrong. 10th ranked Arkansas is beating Alabama 10 to 7 in the 2nd quarter and as of this writing is in scoring position again. ESPN’s wrong too. ESPN failed to capitalize on the Internet interest...

When brave 99er souls began to speak out publicly about voting only for those in Congress come November, who actually were willing to help with our Tier 5 bill, they took a great deal angry grief from many Americans.

Tweet Follow me Lindsay Lohan is stuck in jail and may have ran out of chances. According to a well-known Oakland, California Defense Attorney, famed Actress Lindsay Lohan can’t get out of jail. While the LA Times reported that Lohan “got around Los Angeles County jail system’s early-release policy,” that is not accurate.  The judge wasn’t using a loophole, but acting within the scope of his common legal authority.
