“Local Warming” – Quoted in a TED Presentation

Investor and prankster Yossi Vardi delivered a lecture @ TED (March 2007, Monterey, CA) on the dangers of blogging. Specifically, um, for men. Eagle-eyed Amit Agarwal spotted a glimpse of my earlier blog post, Will Geeks Become an Endangered Species? embedded in the presentation:

    respect for you fame.

  2. I’m glad you posted about your article here in a comment on Scoble’s post, because I was under the mistaken impression after seeing the video that it was “Filmed Mar 2003”. Of course, if you referenced post Will Geeks Become an Endangered Species? was only done in October 2006…

    I’m reassured although ahead of his time, Yossi Vardi isn’t that ahead of his time.
