True Tuesdays episode 2: Daniel Brusilovsky

When we started True Tuesdays, the idea was (and still is) to show inspiring, forward looking talks in the middle of a global recession.

I am not a journalist, but an entrepreneur and investor so my interviews are more chats and tend to have a different approach and atmosphere from a typical media interview. I don't pretend to be unbiased, I'm a believer in this medium and the industry and I am trying to show the 'best of breed', so to speak. So when we sat down with Daniel Brusilovsky a few weeks ago at the Techcrunch offices, the plan was to hear the views on technology of a very bright kid. And perhaps to advise him to have fun and stay a kid as long as possible. We had a nice talk and we finished editing the video last week, just before all hell broke loose.

Arthur van Hoff back with Zing

Arthur van Hoff is out of stealth mode and launched Zing. Here is what Gizmodo says:

Zing is partnering with Yahoo! and Sirius for their new player. The initial prototype includes 8GB of storage space that can be filled wtih music via a Wi-Fi, Bluetooth or direct connection. Zing is trying to eliminate the need for a computer with portable media players by allowing for album downloads to come directly to the player via the Wi-Fi connection. Also the Zing player will have the ability to stream Sirius satellite music from the Wi-Fi connection—what?

The sofa from hell threatens eBay

Brian Dear learns why RSS threatens eBay after he had some trouble getting rid of his gigantic sofa. Obviously it takes more, like a heavily trafficked site (he mentions Craiglist, partly owned by eBay) that has the feeds enough users will subscribe to. But he does raise a very good point: who needs the middleman if you can hang an RSS-feed with the stuff you want to sell off your blog, that will be scooped up by a Technorati-like service? Except, of course, that does create a new middleman. [Via John Battelle]

The high priest of software coding is Dutch

Enjoyed reading the headline Saving Tivo through Strangeberry on PVR Blog, which summarizes an interview with Arthur van Hoff in Business 2.0. 'He's an obscure but revered high priest of software coding. And he thinks he's devised a way to pull TiVo back from death's door' sounds to me like the pitch for a science fiction flick. Van Hoff could have a cameo as huge hungry robot that eats defenseless bloggers.

[Thanks to Dale Dietrich for the tip.]
