on Mad River Glen, my second favourite ski area in the world (behind Lake Louise, AB). Mad River Glen’s slogan used to be, “Ski it if you can” and it’s a great throwback to an earlier era, before big-resort, big-amenity skiing dominated, when sliding on snow was the main focus of the whole thing.
to have a quintessentially Montreal experience, as meg hourihan described yesterday. “The cheeseman switched right over to English from that moment on. I insisted on French. Back and forth we went, but I wouldn’t budge a linguistical inch.”
, it seems that someone slagged Meg Hourihan about her totally reasonable entry the other day. It boggles the mind. The “contentious” entry was nothing but a nicely-worded observation by someone who has more perspective about this stuff than most. She was nice enough to grant that she was “sorry for the confusion.” Uh, that was gracious as hell, but if anyone was confused, they were looking for it.
blog entry and following discussion at Robert Scoble‘s site today. There is a divide between marketing folk and other web folks – and it’s a divide that isn’t closing as quickly as some of the others in the industry. I think a part of it may be related to the distinction (made several months ago by Meg Hourihan and others) between web people and dot-com people – with the added category of merketing folks who are neither.
posted a great piece on reproductive choice on the 28th anniversary of Roe v Wade (I had no idea). Lots of interesting links, and excellent words tying it all together.
In a related matter, you know how people often say, “oh it’s a hard issue, one about which reasonable people may disagree.” As I have gotten older, I’ve quit buying that line, conceding that in order to make nice-nice. I’ve a much harder line than I did. It’s not reasonable, in my opinion, to be anti-choice. Period.
