Gawker ranks the worst microcelebrities

by Warren

Well, what they really did was take a different poll about web microcelebrity and turn it around to focus on the negative results. Unsurprisingly, attention sponge Julia Allison ranked first, with her former boyfriend Jacob Lodwick close behind. I’d agree with the placement of most of the other people on the list, including Scoble and iJustine, though I dunno what Veronica Belmont ever did to anyone to raise such ire. Ditto for Tron Guy; I’ve heard that anyone who’s met him in person comes away amazed at how pleasant he is…despite the wacky outfit.

Angry, shirtless ranting about the iPhone

by Warren

Loren Feldman of 1938 Media has built a career out of bitching out technology companies and Web 2.0 folk with a trademark blend of righteous fury, sarcasm, and shirtlessness. Not a bad gig if you can get it. At any rate, his latest screed not only manages to mock Steve Jobs but also rip into Robert Scoble‘s videomaking abilities (or lack thereof) and it’s pretty damned funny. View it below.

Robert Scoble scares the norms with his insane info habits

by Warren

Purveyor of “meh” videos and net.dilletante Robert Scoble spoke at MediaBistro Circus today, and as Anil Dash reported on Twitter, his half-mad, half-insane information consumption patterns scared the normals but good. After the presentation, rumour has it, Scoble disclosed he’s working on yet another video project (my thoughts on his previous tryouts apparently had no influence on him), this time with the help of Revision3. Here’s the video of Scoble’s presentation, in glorious Conference-O-Vision.
