I have several vices in life. Cigars and wine are two of them. My wife and I throw an annual holiday wine party that's attended by over 60 people. And all I can say is I hope the cartoon below is not a good descriptor of me.

This is a must read for anyone who is still trying to figure out what the heck Web 2.0 is. Christopher Locke, Rick Levine, Doc Searls, David Weinberger all take sections of the book and rant and rave about the way the world is changing, how business as usual is evolving and how it will not wait for you.

As I mentioned above this is a must read for any executive thats in charge of marketing or branding at small or large companies. Sift through the ranks and open you eyes to the interesting changes that citizen journalism and other forms of empowered media are effecting the way the world interacts with companies.

I won't lie, I did skip a few paragraphs here and there, many of the points that are made can be absorbed quicker than the authors thought. I do recommend the book.

On Monday the servers that host BeyeNETWORK were hit by a denial of service attack. It caused short term outages to our services but in the end the entire system was back at 100% in less than 90 minutes. The interesting thing for me was that I was in Dallas and the symptoms seemed worse there than my team in Boulder was experiencing. I couldn't see the site but the team could, plus my friend Stephen Pace twittered me to say he couldn't see the sites. So I had to wonder if it was down for everyone or just me?

I mentioned it to a friend at the event I was speaking at and they suggested the following site:

I guess its true the coolest things are often the simplest. I now have it bookmarked.
