Yesterday Steve Gillmor gave me the perfect answer for when people ask me what IT Conversations is. It goes like this:
You: What's IT Conversations?
Me: Are you familiar with NPR?
Me: It's nothing like NPR.
Does that help?
Bonus link: Doc Searls offers up Irrational Public Radio. From their homepage:
Where other news sources leave off, Irrational Public Radio starts, and proceeds almost mercilessly. For the discerning listener, IPR is a stalwart of integrity, a bastion of integrity, and just a huge heaping platter of integrity. We commend you for your taste and your fetching personal scent.
