Steve Gillmor invited me to be a guest on the new edition of his Gillmor Gang gabfest, which was recorded yesterday afternoon. The main topic was the offer by Netscape’s Jason Calacanis to pay real money to the top “social bookmarkers,” a move I wrote about last week. So there we were in the middle of the show, burrowing down the usual rat holes, when TechCrunch’s Mike Arrington, whom I’ve never met or even spoken with, suddenly announced that he would resign from the Gang if Nick Carr was allowed to be a regular member.
Don’t worry, Mike, I won’t accept any future invitations to be on the show. The last thing I want is to become known as the Yoko Ono of the Gillmor Gang.
