Mahalo Daily - Knott's Berry Farm

Friday, March 21, 2008 2:36 PM
I'm sure not many of you know of this video podcast, but they featured four minute show on a little behind-the-scenes work at Knott's Berry Farm giving you a look at Silver Bullet and Xcelerator. Nothing to interesting, but it's something none-the-less.

Mahalo Daily is a good daily podcast that covers various things. I highly recommend you check out more of it.

What's the nerd fascination with Veronica Belmont exactly? I don't quite get why Calacanis was willing to pay her top dollar to get her away from CNet.

I don't fully understand it myself. She does a good job though. For a newer show, it is doing very well.

I think he did it FOR the nerd factor.

We're seeing similar things happen all over the blogosphere these days. Off the top of my head Kevin Rose and Leo Leoparte (plus many others I can't think of right now) have become rather big stars in a the small spotlight of the internet.

I personally think it's cool how such things are possible with a simple podcast or blog.

These people are more interesting than those on the front page of the super market magazines.

The nerd factor around the tech geeks can be a good laugh at time, but the same can be said about many other things (like coaster enthusiast).

You can't be serious. Some nerd talking on the internet is more interesting than some salacious stories in a super market tabloid?

I like the tabloids to decompress sometimes. They are like candy for the mind. No nutritional value, but oh so sweet. :)

I guess it all depends on the person, but I view the tabloids and other pop culture crap as a step backwards for America. That's my opinion, but I'm far from the norm. I don't even watch TV.

I met Kevin Rose ever so briefly at Mix08 in Vegas a couple of weeks ago. Very down to earth from what I can tell. I give him a lot of credit... I would've cashed out on Digg a year ago.

As I mentioned in my blog, the former TechTV guys on This Week in Tech are getting out of touch. They're too connected, too in the loop.
