Paul Potts at the Royal Variety Concert, happy beginning to a great story of 2007

The first time I saw the Paul Potts video on Youtube, my jaw dropped. Here was this ordinary guy who can sing like Pavarotti. The world fell in love with him over the internet and he went on to win the Britain's Got Talent competition.

Since his 'outing' on Youtube, Paul's first album has gone onto sell 2 Million copies and is number 1 in 15 countries.

This is my favourite story of 2007 - Congrats Paul, it is great to know there are people like you out there. When are you coming to Canada to perform?

The Blogosphere loses a bit of its voice

I have never had the pleasure of meeting Marc Orchant - but I have certainly read and enjoyed his writing over the years. Marc was a pioneer and leader in the world of social communications, and this is clearly represented by the 1000's of tribute posts that have been written across the world by his friends, family and people like me whom just respected his work.

My sympathies and thoughts are with his friends and family.

The biggest reason I love my Blackberry Pearl

The Pearl is a fantastic PDA - but the reason I simply won't switch to another platform anytime soon is this:

I am leaving for a 3 day business trip and - I am NOT taking my charger.

End of Discussion - call me when another smart phone can do that.
