Veronica is not coming back

by russiancatfood / September 24, 2007 4:59 PM PDT

Ok, V is gone. She doesn't work an CNET anymore. Why do people keep bringing her up like this is some kind of conspiracy. "No, she'll be back. She has to. She's just gone for a little bit..." (Seek professional help if this sounds familiar).

Onto happier note: Jason, you are a good balance for Molly on Gadgettes. Can we do the same over at BOL, please? You don't have to start hosting the show, just pop in more often. Eventually you'll get your name into the introduction.

Now, if you don't want to do that, Jason, that's OK. I suppose we can't make you do anything. It's just a thought. Think it over a delicious cup of CNET coffee (I don't know if your break room coffee is good, mine is kinda crummy, so maybe Starbucks Happy )

You scared me for a moment

I knew she was in Japan. When I saw your subject line, I thought she was staying!
Yes, I agree that there's no immediate likelihood of her returning to CNet. Although I've learned from personal experience to never say never.
All I would say to V fans is it's a big wide web out there. She hasn't gone to the country to live on a farm with a family. You can follow her future projects online. Things change. People move. Horizons broaden.

That's exactly what I was trying to say (although she might be tempted to stay in Japan, who knows Wink ) She still has a huge web presence. I'm looking forward to her debut at Mahallo, but I also read her blog all the time and try to follow her on twitter i bit. She's still there if you are a fan, just not at CNet. And if Mahallo flops, then she'll find another gig somewhere. I'm pretty sure CNet is not the only place in San Francisco she can put her mad skills to good use Happy

Whats the over/under on Mahalo lasting a year?

>Why do people keep bringing her up like this is some kind of >conspiracy.

Maybe because most people dont know what a Mahalo is and the ones that do think it wont last until next summer. Hence, the "she'll be back" mentality

I'm not sure if that is a Calcanis thing with people who expect him to fail or simply that human-powered search engine sounds medieval.
How many of you went "Oh yeah, this is a good idea." when you heard it described?

Don't you mean odds?
by paintguru / September 25, 2007 7:06 AM PDT

Over/under is a set point....we can say the over/under for Mahalo lasting is a you want the over or the under? Or we can say what are the odds of it lasting a year? We can't say, what is the over/under on Mahalo lasting a year? Happy However, I will take the under on Mahalo lasting a year.

Am I too mean?

In reply to: Don't you mean odds?

Well, while I'm not thinking that she is going to be back anytime soon, I do secretly hope that Mahallo will go under, and maybe, just maybe, whe will come back to CNET. Yes, the probablility of this is about nothing, but it would be nice Happy

Maybe Louie DePalma was right...

I just remember the old 'Taxi' episode where someone mentioned how James Caan used to drive a cab, and Danny DeVito's crusty dispatcher say "he'll be back.... they ALL come back" Grin
