My Silicon Valley Fortune Cookie

While pondering my Midblog Crisis, I remembered a fortune cookie I received during the spicy noodles dinner in Palo Alto on 12 October (when I was in the US for the Web 2.0 Conference). Present at the meal were Dave Winer, Mike Arrington, Fred Oliveira, Gabe Rivera and myself. At the end of the delicious meal, we all got a fortune cookie. Here’s what mine said:

“Every thinker puts some portion of an apparently stable world in peril.”

I thought it was quite appropriate then – and especially so now given my post yesterday about re-focusing my blog. btw thanks to the people who left encouraging comments on that post!

I miss Silicon Valley. But at least my blog is in the right place.
