The Gillmor Gang — Robert Scoble, John Taschek, Kevin Marks, Keith Teare, and Steve Gillmor — Sure, we talked about the Twitter IPO, about the Bitcoin Bust, about whether Apple is a hardware or software company, and other stuff. Looming in the background was the idea that our politics have atrophied yet more to complete decrepitude, that we could unring the bell of the election, that the collapse in Washington was nothing more than a preexisting condition.
It’s a dullard’s version of Chicken, and no matter how far we slide, there’s still more to go. But luckily, we have hashtags and social graphs to keep us amused while the republic goes under in the slowest possible version of realtime. I’m glad Ev’s a billionaire so we can get Track reinstalled. Waiting for the electrician, anyone?
