Dave: Great point. Looking forward to podcasting with you this week for PodTech.net. I think that in addition to things like the elevator pitch (no brainer there) podcasting, vblogging will change the job market. The notion of a static resume is done. Instead a personal media platform will develop where the resume is what people actuall say or do (their voices)..i.e. if someone says there an expert in a particular topic for example and can't demonstrate it via a blog or podcast then they are not qualified ... yet with the old resume model someone could claim they are when they might not be. So I say to all professionals "step up to the microphone" podcast and your voice will be heard.

This massive shift is exciting.

Guys, if you are going to blog you need to write a LOT more often. June 13 is your most current post. That is 11 days ago!

I visit enough to get frustrated by wasting my time when there are no posts.

If you lack for insightful things to say about technology or VC, don't have a blog.

Andy Nardone

Whippet, get hip to RSS baby. You seem to be treating this blog as though it's back in the days of yore.

The elegance of RSS is that you don't have to "visit" anymore to see if David has any "insightful things to say about technology or VC..." Subcribe to the blog feed and when there is new content you'll find it in your reader/aggregator. David's (and the other's) words will find you so no more frustration. Genius!

And remember, most bloggers are moonlighters that do it in their spare time. It ain't what puts bread on the table so how 'bout a bit more understanding and appreciation?

Great one, looking forward to it... Visit my site at the link below.

Whippet

Andy, you have a point (said whippet sheepishly). Yes, an RSS reader is the right approach.

But I stand by my comment that a blog should post more frequently.

Eric Olson

Elevator pitches via podcast are a very interesting concept. Thank you for blogging about it. I have linked to this site on my blog a few times already and appreciate your insight. Looking forward to your next blog. Please visit the link to my blog below when you have a few free moments.

Just because someone doesn't love you the way you want them to,doesn't mean they don't love you with all they have. Do you understand?
