Peak Media Whore!

My torrid media whoring run has exhausted itself. I am looking forward to taking a few weeks off and not hearing my own voice.

Most of the FB coverage had to do with two themes: First, the discovery I made that a Facebook “Active Users” meant anyone who clicked a Like button that day/month (See Less than meets the eye at Facebook and Who’s a Daily Facebook User? Anyone who clicks “Like”). Secondly, the notorious but accurately titled post How Facebook Fucked Up Its Own IPO.  

I guess the media responded to both.

If for some masochistic reason you feel compelled to hear me babble about this noise, you can inflict the following on yourselves over the holiday weekend:

• Bove vs Ritholtz on JPMorgan’s Jamie Dimon, Bailouts (BNN)
• Facebook Raises IPO Price Range (BNN)
• Ritholtz: Facebook Valuation ‘Piggish’ (Bloomberg)
• Plenty of Blame to Share for Faulty Facebook IPO (Yahoo Finance)
• Burned by the Best of Breed: JPM (Yahoo Finance)
• How Much Does the Fiscal Cliff Matter? (Yahoo Finance)
• Why Facebook Is Almost as Greedy as Bernie Madoff (WSJ)

Over this same period, I had to turn down requests from ABC, CNN, BBC, CNN International and others due to scheduling conflicts, too short notice, etc.

I also am working on a skunk works video project that is potentially very very cool. More on this later.

Other than a brief appearance on the FDIC insurance next week, I am going off the media grid for a few months. If I am sick of hearing my voice, I can only assume you are too.
