The New Yorker Summit: Live Blog!


ummm.. one more thing.

HE EVEN ACTS LIKE HIM!!! The Non-chalance! Both always bring out the great examples of the past, with plenty of arm waving. Anyway, this talk is fantastic, and so beautifully has nothing to do with the economy. Definitely worth the listen. It gets absolutely Gladwell/fantastic after the first 5 minutes (ALL is worth watching). I think this is something you have to watch and listen, and not just play in the background. There is something about Gladwell's mannerism that help one understand/learn.

Listen here to Malcolm / Sideshow / Kelsey sing the H.M.S. Pinafore! (tiny file!)

one other note.. it's great (and don't get me wrong Malcolm is an absolutely as fantastic a speaker as he is a writer - his ideas come through with colour) to see when Malcolm is confident with his statements. He tends finish with ", right", vs. when he is not 100% sure that the give will take (lots, of "ummm.."s early on and late - reading/memorizing vs. knowing intuitively - ie. very, very rarely in the middle during his British WWI example...). Now, in saying that, it could be my over-reading his speaking... but, both of us would probably say that we don't think so.

Anyway, go check out the live blogging of the New Yorker Summit, yada, yada, yada...

Stevie Wonder in Montreal - June 30


No Ray Charles, but I signed up on Mr. Wonder's mailing list... I assume tickets will be first come first serve from there?.. http://www.steviewonder.net... hmm, better sign up here too just to be safe... Of course, free concert; one probably doesn't need tickets? I assume it'll be held outdoors?

Punch-Out is coming to the Wii
