  • Gillmor Gang: Sign Language

    Gillmor Gang: Sign Language

    The Gillmor Gang — Danny Sullivan, Robert Scoble, Kevin Marks, John Taschek, and Steve Gillmor — barely came out of the gates before John Taschek let Comcast have it, and really you need to see the visual on this one. After the salute to the internet provider, talk circled around Microsoft's release of Office for iPad. Is it important? Well, no one on the show seemed to use Office any more… Read More

  • Gillmor Gang: Robophobia

    Gillmor Gang: Robophobia

    The Gillmor Gang — Danny Sullivan, Dan Farber, Robert Scoble, John Taschek, and Steve Gillmor — talk about what it means to be human in a digital age. The rise of the stream threatens to overwhelm us, and the Gang seems bent on drowning in wearables. But maybe that's just a harsh look at a tough nut we're all trying to crack: keeping up with the impossible flow. Meanwhile, @dannysullivan… Read More

  • Gillmor Gang: Hocus Pocus

    Gillmor Gang: Hocus Pocus

    The Gillmor Gang — Danny Sullivan, Robert Scoble, John Taschek, Kevin Marks, and Steve Gillmor — find themselves in a quandary over Steven Elop's alleged exit strategy for Microsoft. Is he really serious, dumping XBox and casting aside Bing? Or is this just a magician's sleight of hand, misdirecting the attention from the more radical idea of abandoning Windows to save Office. The Gang is… Read More

  • Gillmor Gang: Under My Thumb

    Gillmor Gang: Under My Thumb

    The Gillmor Gang — John Borthwick, Robert Scoble, Danny Sullivan, John Taschek, and Steve Gillmor — collected iPhone 5's from the corners of the tech world. Danny Sullivan ordered the elusive gold one at midnight in L.A., Scoble hit the midtown Apple Store in the Big Apple, John Borthwick got his via the betaworks diplomatic pouch, and John Taschek, well, Android Boy passed. After the show… Read More

  • Gillmor Gang: Watertown

    Gillmor Gang: Watertown

    The Gillmor Gang — Danny Sullivan, Dan Farber, Kevin Marks, John Taschek, and Steve Gillmor — note the intersection of social and mainstream medias as the events in Boston unfolded in real time. What has been framed as a competition became something more, as Twitter streams, scanner apps, and local news streams meshed with CNN et al. Inspired curation by @dannysullivan produced an… Read More

  • Gillmor Gang: It's Alright, Bob

    Gillmor Gang: It’s Alright, Bob

    The Gillmor Gang — Robert Scoble, Danny Sullivan, Kevin Marks, and Steve Gillmor — convened with Gillmor in Boston and the Gang in California. We took another cut at the Google Reader damage, with @dannysullivan hating on notifications and @scobleizer hating on Android's notifications. Did I say I told him so? Yes I did. But the mere fact we spent so much time on the stream's destruction of… Read More

  • Gillmor Gang: Snow Kidding

    Gillmor Gang: Snow Kidding

    The Gillmor Gang — Danny Sullivan, John Borthwick, Kevin Marks, Keith Teare, and Steve Gillmor — take advantage of the East Coast blizzard to toast some marshmallows on the fire. First up is the Series A drought and impact of the cloud on startup funding. Next, the big pivot to Spoilerland, aka Binge TV. House of Cards is having just that impact on the television industry, collapsing the… Read More

  • Gillmor Gang: It's Only Love

    Gillmor Gang: It’s Only Love

    The Gillmor Gang — Danny Sullivan, Robert Scoble, John Taschek, Kevin Marks, and Steve Gillmor — have some fun with Facebook's new GraphSearch and advances in medical techniques. We all agree that when Facebook says it's not about search, well, it's all about search. Should Google be quaking in its boots as @scobleizer shows the Jets and Giants parking lot in the post season that is Google+… Read More

  • Gillmor Gang: Rocks In A Can

    Gillmor Gang: Rocks In A Can

    The Gillmor Gang — Danny Sullivan, John Borthwick, Kevin Marks, Keith Teare, and Steve Gillmor — bemoan the political dregs of the finally-engaged election before working our way back into tech waters. Just when all hope seems crushed in a sea of SuperPAC money and Jobs nostalgia, we ask the interesting questions, merge the technology and the business moment, and otherwise till the ground for… Read More

  • Gillmor Gang: Silver Bullet Theory

    Gillmor Gang: Silver Bullet Theory

    The Gillmor Gang — Danny Sullivan, Robert Scoble, Kevin Marks, John Taschek, and Steve Gillmor — handicap the latest entries in the Tablet Stakes. It feels like a game of musical chairs, with three chairs and four tablet platforms. When the music stops, Apple, Amazon, and Google are sitting pretty, with Microsoft missing a business model to finance the Surface. The iPhone 5 launch next week… Read More

 
  • Gillmor Gang: I Can't Hear You

    Gillmor Gang: I Can’t Hear You

    The Gillmor Gang: John Borthwick, Danny Sullivan, Doc Searls, Kevin Marks, and Steve Gillmor — struggled with Comcastic bandwidth and hours on hold as Twitter and Apple tweaked their business models. It seems that Twitter is refurbishing the accomodations within 140 characters to create a nice new home for Twitter apps, in the process giving the FLipboard to aggregators outside the mother… Read More

  • Gillmor Gang: Or Are You Just Glad to See Me

    Gillmor Gang: Or Are You Just Glad to See Me

    The Gillmor Gang — John Borthwick, Danny Sullivan, John Taschek, Kevin Marks, and Steve Gillmor — turned into Google fanboys on a dime, or $200, with the release of the Nexus 7 tablet. This thing is amazing,, small, fast, and did I mention $200. Just weeks after Microsoft Surface didn't ship, pre-ordered Nexi did, selling out in most if not all the stores that carried it. The Gang touched… Read More

  • Gillmor Gang: What Are You, Four

    Gillmor Gang: What Are You, Four?

    The Gillmor Gang — Danny Sullivan, Dan Farber, Dan Taschek, and Dan Gillmor — no, that's not right. Steve Gillmor, Steve Taschek... No. Without Scoble, we have little time to get to the point, which this week is Google's Do As Much Evil as Possible Tour. @dannysullivan returns with a 20 minute diatribe on paid inclusion, whatever that means.   Without Kevin Marks, we have to fend for… Read More

  • Eat the Document

    Eat the Document

    With all the press releases masquerading as news, Techmeme has felt more like Craiglist for articles in the past few months, or is it years. But recently we finally got some real news, when Google of all people released Gdrive. We knew of course that it was coming, but not how it would actually feel when it got here. I haven’t signed up yet, but already it’s a big deal for me. I haven’t… Read More

  • Gillmor Gang: The Teddy Bear Bubble

    Gillmor Gang: The Teddy Bear Bubble

    The Gillmor Gang — John Borthwick, Danny Sullivan, John Taschek, and Steve Gillmor — took the bait and played the Are We in a Bubble game. With Apple's stock price in free fall, the mobile giant reported another blowout What Me Worry quarter that sent the stock right back up. Meanwhile, Google announced, no, shipped Gdrive, and sent shivers down the collective cloud storage spine. What… Read More

  • Microsoft Blue Screens and Press Events

    Gillmor Gang: Lawyers, Puns, and Monkeys

    The Gillmor Gang — Danny Sullivan, Robert Scoble, John Taschek, Kevin Marks, and Steve Gillmor — proved unequal to the task of rendering the week's non-news into insight. Whether it was @scobleizer and Sergey Brin circling the famous Google Glasses or @dannysullivan grading Larry Page's book report, nothing was revealed. No monkeys were harmed in the making of this film. They weren't helped… Read More

  • CES 2012 Predictions

    Gillmor Gang 01.07.12 (TCTV)

    The Gillmor Gang — Danny Sullivan, Robert Scoble, John Taschek, Kevin Marks, and Steve Gillmor — kicked off the New Year in CES style. That's CES as in Apple-Free, last Microsoft keynote, All TV all the time, Super Cab Lines Vegas stays in Vegas. Both @dannysullivan and @scobleizer spent a great deal of time handicapping the race for control of what used to be called the TV set. These days… Read More

  • Too Soon

    Too Soon

    Steve Jobs didn’t invent Twitter. In a week of relentless tributes, somehow that gives me some relief. Not that I buy the anti-Steve story, that we are imprisoned as artists in the closed architecture of the Apple walled garden. How soul-crushing it is to enjoy things for their beingness. Bah.

  • Gillmor Gang on the Post-Jobs Era

    Gillmor Gang 10.8.11 (TCTV)

    The Gillmor Gang — Doc Searls, Danny Sullivan, Robert Scoble, Kevin Marks, John Taschek, and Steve Gillmor — take the first tentative steps in the post-Jobs era. As a showman, technolgist, and business leader, he was unparalleled. But as a teacher, he gave us something even more valuable than ideas, products, and opportunity. Fired, he rebuilt. Dying, he lived even larger. Gone, he connected… Read More
