Calacanis Withdraws From SES San Jose

by Jeremy Schoemaker on August 16, 2007 · 28 comments

I was getting my cheat sheet for San Jose SES next week and I noticed that Jason Calacanis’s name has been taken off of the panels he was on. I wonder what happened…. I have to say I am disappointed. I was looking forward to Jason and David Naylor locking horns in a “whose social search engine” is better.

Jason btw where you at with coming on my radio show. You said many times you would do it but you never answer email or skypes =P ?!?

That’s really too bad. The more I read about his demeanor and cockiness, the more interested I am in hearing from him and his new projects.

I was listening to a podcast of yours yesterday and his name was brought up. It was the podcast where you were giving your thoughts on which conferences to attend (You’ve swayed my decision towards PubCon). You had an interesting story about one of his speaking engagements where he mentioned that “he makes too much money for Google to ban him”. Great stuff!

A bit off topic, but I have just observed it, maybe it is already old news, but why did you change the title of your blog? I must say “Skills to pay the bills” was charming and part of a brand. I liked it more. Not a professional blogger doesn’t tell me anything…of course, beside the fact itself :-)

I also thought about this. But is there any advertising that pays just for being displayed? I can’t see any. But crossed my mind…

10 ShoeMoney

all advertisers pay a flat monthly fee ;) Its just for fun.

Didn’t CPM die in 2001?


It will be interesting to see if we get an answer on this change?

I agree. I was thinking one post a day was fine, if that. Now we have news flashes every other hour. But I know shoe is the man and he does knows best. Sorry Shoe, just an observation about the news flashes.

I’ll miss the discussion but won’t miss the personality, or lack thereof.
