The (near) Future of Tynan

If you're wondering why I always put my name in the topics of these things, it's not because I have a huge ego. I do have a huge ego, but I do it so that my name gets better search rankings in google. My goal is for people to be able to search for "Tynan" and for my site to be number one. Soon. If you want to help, like the almighty Magnus, you can link to my blog and put my name in the link.

Today Doug, Steve, Steve's (ex?) girlfriend, Todd and I headed down to Canyon Lake, TX to do some tubing. You see, I bought the sweetest tube ever to bring to the lake. The thing actually flies 15 feet in the air behind the boat. I think I wrote about it before, but I'm not sure. Anyway, the first time we tried I skipped along the water, but didn't really take flight because my weak human lungs couldn't inflate the tube enough.

Today before going to the lake I bought two different pumps to ensure that the thing would actually inflate. As it turned out, the boat rental place had a sweet air compressor, negating the need for our own pumps. Oh well... you owe me one (two?), Wal Mart. Our rental boat was a shoddy looking boat most certainly manufactured before 1990 which was apparently very fast. The interior was a coccoon of brightly colored vinyl couches covered by a weathered bimini top. I climbed aboard and with the help of Todd, tied the monsterous tube to the boat.

Steve Case Keynote Interview at Digital Media Conference + John Trimble of Pandora

On DROdio

Steve Case was interviewed by Paul Sherman at yesterday's Digital Media Conference in Arlington, VA.

I also captured a panel by research analysts on digital media trends, a panel by VCs, and I did a panel on the iPad + Media.

I asked Steve a question about focus, saying that as an entrepreneur I had to be extremely focused, but I saw him doing many things (he's Chairman of Revolution, StartupAmerica and The Case Foundation) and I asked him if the need for extreme focus lessened when one has many resources at his disposal.  He said 'no,' but then said his focus is on entrepreneurship, which didn't make a lot of sense to me.  I could, for example, say that my focus is on entrepreneurship too, or that my focus is on being a human.  Saying one has focus at too macro a level seems to cheapen the value of focus and render it meaningless.  Or, maybe I just don't understand his position because I don't have access to the kind of wealth he does to execute his vision.  What's your opinion?  I'd love to hear your comments below.

Here's Steve's interview.
