This past weekend, I was live on Blog Talk Radio to talk more about the
lessons of Steve Jobs departure, Jeff Bridges’ album tanking, and the
philosophy that “ALL Business is Show Business.”
Listen in — and I hope you enjoy!
(ONE MORE THING — as Steve Jobs would say — I want to start scheduling a
regular program on Blog Talk Radio. Right now, I’m thinking a Sunday
mid-morning show might be best. Obviously, it would be archived on iTunes as
a podcast and on BlogTalkRadio.com…but, what I’m really wondering is:

Quick note from my iPhone — my friend (and my wife’s high school
