Hey, this is the kind of thing I've been doing lately. I attended Nonprofit Day at the Hilton in San Francisco Friday and scribed almost all the speakers on my iPad. Chip Heath spoke but he didn't want the sketch notes shared because he was talking about a new book and didn't want to let the cat out of the bag. C'mon and hire me to do this for you!

Dangle Gets Whiny Toward New York Times

Faithful readers of this blog (both of you) are rightfully disappointed by the fact that I've gone all summer without a post, sketch, dose of dangle, or anything. Sorry guys! There are a couple of reasons. I was on the road with the fam for most of July (see my post of Europe sketches), but also my dream of a lifetime has come true and I was invited, actually I asked, to be a writer for Wonkette, my favorite political satire blog, and they said yes.

I wrote four columns about the European debt crisis from the road and a few other items. It's a little like doing Troubletown again but harder and with more annoying comments. It pays about the same which is nothing.

This week I wrote a whiny takedown of this weekend's New York Times Magazine article about Oakland and the Occupy movement that was REJECTED, which is probably just as well since it was so provincial and defensive. If you go to the NYT article be sure to read the comments. Damn, the anti-occupy crowd is loud and nasty! Anyway, just for fun, here's what I wrote:

Thanks to a fancy reporter from the New York Times I now know that I reside in the stupidest city in America!
