Run the 2007 ING New York City Marathon

Tuesday, June 12th, 2007

I received confirmation of my placement in the 2007 ING NYC marathon today. I ran this race last year and did pretty well considering the difficulty of the course (3:26). Read about it here: 2006 NYC Marathon

Let the training begin!

Dear Frank Sconzo
You have a confirmed spot in the ING New York City Marathon 2007. You’re in for the experience of a lifetime. We are thrilled that you will be joining us on Sunday, November 4. With less than five months to go, planning is well under way for what will be the most exciting weekend of running in New York City history.

Steve Jobs and Bill Gates at D5

Saturday, June 2nd, 2007

Bill and Steve appeared together during the All Things Digital executive conference (D5).  Walt Mossberg and Karen Swisher led the discussion with questions.

It was amusing to watch Bill and Steve avoid taking shots at each other (for the most part). They discussed each other’s roles in how technology has advanced over the last three decades. They also discussed partnerships, competition, regrets, mobile technologies, visions of the future, several references to “cool things” Apple is working on that Steve couldn’t talk about, and took questions from the audience.

I also found it humorous that Steve dressed in sneakers and jeans, while Bill wore dress pants and a button-down shirt, emulating the company images found in the recent Apple ad campaig: Mac guy and PC guy.

Unfortunately, the videos are split into eight segments. The first, which shows footage of two of them in their earlier years, is not part of the interview. The remaining seven segments are all pieces of the interview. To just get a brief synopsis of the “best moments”, view the highlight reel.
