Heard in an interview with Katie Hafner, who’s written a book about concert pianist Glenn Gould. She used the word in the context of Gould having stopped performing in concerts, only she said he’d ‘stopped concertising’.
Listen to the interview – the ear-ache inducing moment is not far from the end.
Just had one of those days when I would have been just as productive if I’d waited until the end of the day to parachute in with final comments, instead of being involved all the way through. Enormously frustrating to think how many hours of my finite life I have wasted.
That’s the problem with trying to write something by committee. It never works yet for some reason people persist in indulging the myth of ‘involving stakeholders’. In my experience, democracy doesn’t work when it comes to writing; benign dictatorship is the only way to get good content with anything approaching efficiency.
I’m in a taxi on the way to Heathrow to catch a flight to Berlin, having just downloaded the WordPress iPhone app.
Obviously I’m having a play with the app right now. I’m thinking that this app might be a game changer in terms of breaking down the moblog/microblog/blog boundaries, much more so than Nokia’s lame attempts.
