Who's Clued-In?

December 25, 2006

You, my readers, who gave me a chance to enter your lives and speak my piece these last 10 years.

December 18, 2006

Jimmy Carter.

December 11, 2006

Charles Rangel, for launching an important discussion.

December 04, 2006

Is lifting weights after age 50. (Remember, low weights and high reps.) Nothing reduces the pain better. Not even aerobics. Although a nice Sunday bike ride is still the very best thing...especially when it doesn't hurt.

November 27, 2006

Bill Hilf, now general manager for platforms at Microsoft. Whether he'll be listened to or not is another question.

November 20, 2006

Rice University for Connexxions.

November 13, 2006

Industrial policy that encourages U.S. production and shorter production runs.

November 06, 2006

Scott Howell, the operative who came up with the Bob Corker "Call Me" ad.

October 30, 2006

Steve Jobs, who may now go down in history as superior, tactically, to Bill Gates.

October 23, 2006

(Not that I agree with him)Tony Perkins.

October 16, 2006

As I've said before, is Howard Dean.

October 09, 2006

Keith Olbermann. The greatest journalist of his generation.

October 02, 2006

Pentaho, for the way they acquire open source projects, which is the only way that can possibly work.

September 25, 2006

The way Zenoss is using XML to close the gap between users' spotting problems and delivering solutions.

September 18, 2006

Were the bloggers who went after ABC. Sometimes the most important political battles are not those fought against politicians.

September 11, 2006

the New Politics Institute and their paper on mobile campaigning.

September 04, 2006

CrooksandLiars. Great site.

August 28, 2006

Jon Stewart. Him funny. And these days he covers more stories than CNN. (Two is more than one.)

August 21, 2006

Anyone who sees the need for both the U.S. and Israel to change tactics.

August 14, 2006

Apple's license of its iPod technology to major carmakers. (Whether it's smart for you to buy such a car is another thing.)

August 07, 2006

Jay Rosen even if he thinks I don't agree. Sometimes being Clued-in means asking the right questions.

July 31, 2006

William Hurley. Now if you've got a blog, Bill, blog.

July 24, 2006

Doc Searls

July 17, 2006

Simon Phipps, with my apologies.

July 10, 2006

Simon Phipps , who demonstrated to me this week just how the open source economic process works.

July 03, 2006

Warren Buffett.

June 26, 2006

Bill Gates. If he can grow up, maybe us other 51 year olds can, too.

June 19, 2006

Larry Augustin. Open source values matter.

June 12, 2006

Eben Moglen, who said "the politics of open source are as American as apple pie." They are.

June 05, 2006

Dennis Hastert. Too bad the Clue came too late.

May 29, 2006

Glenn Greenwald, who knows what scares me and writes about it clearly.

May 22, 2006

Markos Moulitsas. No one yet matches his combination of political and tech savvy.

May 15, 2006

A political party taking advantage of opportunity. Numbers don't mean anything if they can't translate into votes.

May 08, 2006

US First. They would be wise to use more open source.

May 01, 2006

Sun Microsystems. Committing to open source is the right strategy, but everything depends on execution.

April 24, 2006

Mobile Linux. It's where the action is. Too bad the action is in China.

April 17, 2006

Reed Hundt , the best speaker (in my opinion) at Freedom2Connect.

April 10, 2006

Amazon.Com. Their time in the limelight has ended, and they won.

April 03, 2006

Lou Dobbs. He's on to something.

March 27, 2006

David Isenberg. Of course no one has to tell him that.

March 20, 2006

Om Malik, summarizing the argument on behalf of killing the Bells.

February 27, 2006

Bob Frankston. Great minds keep thinking.

February 20, 2006

Songbird, an open source rival to iTunes. Note that having a Clue doesn't give you the game.

February 13, 2006

Bruce Kushnick and his book $200 Billion Broadband Scandal. Get your copy today.

February 06, 2006

Jeff Vick. Hi boss.

January 30, 2006

Google , even if it loses its attempt to protect user records from the government. The attempted defense is excellent PR.

January 23, 2006

The new GPL and the process by which it is being developed.

January 16, 2006

The partnership between the US Patent Office and open source advocates aimed at helping the government find prior art on patent filings.

January 09, 2006

Greg Germani of Decatur, Georgia, creator of the Atlanta Time Machine . He takes pictures from the same vantage point as old pictures, and the results are stunning.
