A pretty mellow day of work, capped by a great ride down the coast from Carlsbad to Del Mar, and a nice dinner with a colleague. I was strong today; must be the combined effects of the long hard ride on Saturday and some time off. Sure is fun riding when you can float up the hills :) I expect it will all be back to normal tomorrow, however...

Stephen Baker of BusinessWeek on how to remake BusinessWeek. "This last 5% consumes a sizeable effort and expense. The question the next (or current) owner of BusinessWeek is going to have to grapple with is whether such attention to detail is worth it, or, alternatively, whether there's another way to achieve the same goal."

Finally: conversation with a friend, today: "Remember when MTV used to be music videos? Yeah! And remember when CNN used to be news?" :)
