It’s taken me a lot of years, but I’ve come around to this: If you’re dumb, surround yourself with smart people. If you’re smart, surround yourself with smart people who disagree with you.
— Isaac Jaffe, “The Hungry and the Hunted” from the third episode of the first season of Sports Night
I highly recommend the show. And I also recommend you come join us Friday mornings. I bet we’ll all be glad you did.
Rooster Teeth’s Burnie Burns joins Kevin Smith, Lisa Kudrow and others to discuss the Future of TV. The thing is, Burnie and his wicked crew don’t need to speculate on where the Internet is going in the future. They are BRINGING THE FUTURE into the now. If you have ANY interest at all in where Internet, community and original content is going, you need to study every word that rapidly fires out of Burnie Burns’ mouth.
Filmmaker Kevin Smith (Clerks, Chasing Amy, etc.) summed up Rooster Teeth’s amazing accomplishment like this. “You’re my hero man, your generation is doing what we dreamed about doing… We’re like ‘We want to be independent!’ but we weren’t, ultimately we sold out. You guys truly are independent, and you’re doing it from a great place, like, ‘this is what we love to do.’ You’re like, ‘I could wait for somebody else to give us some loot or I could build what I want over here.”
Let’s cashmob local joints we love.
That means show up and spend your hard-earned money to support ‘em with your purchases. Each Friday morning at Mozart’s, we can select that week’s spot and set two target times.
What’d’ya say we start with Waterloo Records?
By all means, drop by and load up anytime. If able, bring some friends with you to either or both of these target times:
- Saturday, March 2, at 10:30 a.m.
- Tuesday, March 5, at 6:30 p.m.
Hasta pronto, y’all. Thanks, everybody.
UPDATE: Part one went well. Thanks.

“Everyone in this country should learn how to program a computer… because it teaches you how to think.”

Clay Shirky on communities and love:
“they love one another enough to stop what they’re doing and listen to each other, to have a conversation… to answer questions for one another, to diagnose things for one another, sometimes to write code for one another. ‘Oh, I think I see what’s going wrong here; try this.’”
I love the Internet. I love y’all more. There’s no comparison, actually.
As Dan Harmon said at XOXO, “the Internet is not people. People is more important than everything.” Let’s never forget or lose that.
I hope and trust all is well with you and yours. If it’s not, tell someone.
I hope to see you Friday. Come on down. Let’s hang out and help each other like we do each week.
Last Friday a few of us had a great conversation about Bill Hicks, George Carlin, Lenny Bruce, the higher-ed bubble, the web disrupting the factory model of K-12 education, and much more. The discussion was densely packed, multi-threaded, and fun.
Feel free to share here any links or thoughts related to recent Regular talks that you’ve enjoyed.
I hope to see y’all again this Friday. Thanks, everybody.

Kirby Ferguson, who hung out with us while regularing during SXSW 2012, delivered this great talk in June in Edinburgh, Scotland, as part of TED Global. Enjoy.
