Cheers, Gary http://www.garyshort.org/ http://www.carnoustiegolflinks.co.uk/vlog/ From: email@example.com [mailto:[EMAIL PROTECTED] On Behalf Of andrew michael baron Sent: 15 December 2006 14:33 To: firstname.lastname@example.org Subject: Re: [videoblogging] Re: OOoh, Amanda's Up! Gary, whats the point of telling me Im getting on your nerves? You are doing exactly what Andrew Congdon did and I have no problem speaking up about it and defending myself. I think I provided a well rounded argument for disucssion about the cost of doing business when merging established media and new media. When Andrew Congdon chimed in to "refute" my contribution to this group by saying "Sour Grapes", I think this shows dolt behavior. I think this is now your unfortunate oversight. Your comments should have been directed at him. > So what was your idea exactly? Why dont you go back and read the post instead of participating in accusing me of "being such a baby" and shooting me down for the contributions I give to this field, big or small. Andrew, you are really starting to get on my nerves now with this carping; Give me a brea it is so childish, it's like listening to my kids arguing over who has been given the most veg and how it's soooo unfair. For goodness sake stop being such a baby. Huh? The sad fact of business is that people come together, they do great work and sometimes they disagree and go their own way - that's life Andrew, get over it. The thing is there is no doubt you have talent, but you are not encouraging anyone to reach out to you with a new business idea/partnership with this behavior. People will be reading these outbursts of yours and saying to themselves, "is this what it is like if it doesn't work out?" and they'll be giving you a big body swerve. While we are on the subject, stop pretending that Rocketboom was some huge intellectual breakthrough on your part, that it was all your wonderful idea. What utter nonsense. Entertaining though Rocketboom was (and still is) there wasn't a single new idea there. I mean, taking a look at the more quirky aspects of the news? Been done. Fronting the show with a good looking, intelligent and charismatic woman. Been done. Hosting the show as a video cast for download? Been done. So what was your idea exactly? Like I said though, I don't want to pour oil on troubled waters, as I think we are all tired of hearing about it - just please, get over yourself will you?
