My Other Blog

This is the Koons piece that caused the big brouhaha. Nice donuts, huh?

I have another blog where I stick my bi-weekly columns for Metroland Magazine . I discuss issues of the day in the IP, IT, privacy, media, music and legal worlds. It's more important than the stuff here, and almost as much fun, so go look at it. And feel free to post comments.

At 4 PM this Friday I'll be replaying the extraordinary interview Jeanne Bassis did with Sophie B Hawkins last week. The two of them were like peas in a pod.

SBH's at Helsinki this Sunday.

Nada, sorry

Stuck in conference hell. Well, actually, it's not so bad. Tomorrow I'm on a panel discussing Byrne and Eno's "My Life in the Bush of Ghosts" as part of the ScienceArt Festival taking place in NYC. Kids are out of school, so we're getting out of dodge early.

Hence, no show again this week, the third skip in five weeks. But this is the end of conference season for me.

Was hoping Elena Paul from the New York Volunteer Lawyers for the Arts would stop by on her way through to Pittsfield for the Bootcamp seminar we're doing on Saturday, but she got a late start out of NYC, so we just rocked the afternoon away.
