- One of his favorite pastimes is to email everyone that has the misfortune to come across his computer. Then again, Guy has his own unique definition of what constitutes spam. I rather liked Dave Winer's response the best:
Where reason and common sense collide. A tongue-in-cheek
look at the news, politics and opinionators, with more hubris
and irreverent pomposity than any other channel ... stay tuned

I'm beginning to think that I should change the name of this blog to the daily FISKing of Guy Kawasaki.
So-called expert Guy Kawasaki (blogging 120 days and counting... and no, I'm not giving him a link unless he returns the favour) throws us more pearls about how to
evangelize huckster our blogs.
It seems that one of his favorite pastimes is to email everyone that has the misfortune to come across his computer. Then again, Guy has his own unique definition of what constitutes spam:
"When I started this blog, I sent out 10,000 email announcements... for example, when a bozo includes you on a large carbon-copy email, mine the addresses." I rather liked Dave Winer's response the best:
"Disclaim: Scripting News does not meet the high standards of 120-day blogger Guy Kawasaki."Guy calls it "evangelizing". I call it a pain in the ass.
UPDATE: Better Bad News picks up the ball with "Who Gives a Shiitake". And the blogfather himself Dave Winer liked the post so much that he even linked to it. I'm honoured folks.

With Easter upon us there is much talk about the so-called lost gospel of Judas, the disciple best known for betraying Jesus Christ. Apparently this manuscript paints Judas in a more favorable light as someone who was only doing Christ's bidding.
According to radiocarbon dating the papyrus is purported to be dated between A.D. 220 and 340. Other tests confirm it is consistent with known ancient methods and ingredients in known inks from the third and fourth centuries A.D.
It's all very interesting, but given that it was written by someone else a considerable time after the death of Judas it amounts to little more than the stuff that myths and legends are made of.
