Gillmor Gang: Wake Up Call

Policing Hate Speech Is Harder Than Nipples

The Gillmor Gang — Robert Scoble, Keith Teare, John Taschek, Kevin Marks, and Steve Gillmor — recorded early on a Thursday morning, flush with Apple CEO Tim Cook’s read-between-the-lines performance at D11. Cook took some 80 minutes to say very little, or so say the pundits and Wall Street spinners. But the Gang found plenty to decrypt, including thoughts on Apple TV, wearable computing, value versus volume, and just about everything Steve Jobs used to do minus the famous reality distortion field.

But as the lack of smoke cleared, what was left over suggested a robust fall and a steady drumbeat of evolution from Apple to match Google’s flashier but Webier approach. Lost in the shuffle was Microsoft’s X-Box announcements, leaving the strong impression of the two leaders pulling away from the pack. But it was fun to watch @scobleizer wake up over the course of the show, as we realized, like Cook, how much we love the art of surprise.
