Morning Notes: June 6, 2006

More in an irregularly occurring series...

I got a note from Joe Trippi on behalf of Steve Westly, who is running for the Democratic representative for governor to take down Arnold. Joe wrote that Westly had a 3 minute video on YouTube with a strong message. Surprisingly, I was so turned off by the unprofessionalism in the video that it had me thinking twice about voting his way. In fact, the YouTube link offered more commercials for Angiledes, which upon viewing, had more credibility in my opinion. That's one e-mail blast that backfired...

FYI, We've been running our Apple Mail in three panes for about a week now, and it's strong. I wouldn't say it's so outstanding that I need a widescreen PowerBook, as Om Malik does, but it's good nonetheless... GigaOm: Apple Mail & The Three Pane Magic

Stephen Colbert offers the commencement address for Knox College, saying "I have two last pieces of advice. First, being pre-approved for a credit card does not mean you have to apply for it. And lastly, the best career advice I can give you is to get your own TV show. It pays well, the hours are good, and you are famous. And eventually some very nice people will give you a doctorate in fine arts for doing jack squat."

And June 6th is more than the launch date for The Omen or the California primary, but it's also draft day for major league baseball. For a look on how the Oakland A's may approach this very-interesting day, check out the Athletics Nation Draft Q&A With John Sickels
