SmartMobs on Dan Gillmor talking about the future of journalism, and the power of networks:

"The second event Dan cited was the occasion last summer at Esther Dyson's PC Forum, held in Arizona, where Joe Nacchio, CEO of Qwest was, in Dan's words, "whining about how hard it was to run a telephone company these days." Dan blogged this while he was listening, and immediately got email from a reader in Florida who sent him a link disclosing that Nachio had sold $300 million of stock in the company he was helping to kill. Dan blogged it, and another participant in the Forum, Doc Searls, who was contemporaneously blogging the event, took Nachio to task for it, while Nachio was still standing at the podium. Here is Doc's version."

Why are so many people so greedy? And why are Federal Prosecutors letting them get away with it?

Hi Laurel,I was your January winner of the betauiful journal that you sent me. Life has certainly been challenging in the last couple months with my husband having back surgery (he seems to be recovering well), my mother in law passing away at the end of February and two daughters graduating this year, one from high school and one from NAIT (mid terms were a stressor). At times like these, life offers you challenges but again it depends upon how you handle them. I definitely find that it makes you a better person because you learn a lot about yourself and others. And though I may not have the time to do all the things that matter to me at the moment, I am looking after what has to be done and have certainly simplied my life. I have found a great deal of solace just from reading the various articles in your archives. And though I am going through just turning 50 and wondering where to go next from here, I will continue to read your website, make out that bucket list and a life inventory when things slow down which I'm sure they will. Thanks Laurel for all the wonderful help, information and inspiration!
