This week's sign that blogs now rule the Earth:
Over the weekend, I got an email from Keiko Sakuma of Kaygetsu asking me to help quash the rampant rumor that Larry Ellison and Steve Jobs bankrolled the restaurant.
While I'm not the only one who passed along the rumor, when the subject of the rumor actually writes to me, I'm always happy to print a retraction.
"I just wanted to get the record straight about this rumor about our restaurant being backed up by Steve Jobs and Larry Ellison. Steve Jobs didn't even know we opened a new restaurant until someone told him about us. We don't have any inventors period! I hope you can help us in getting the word out. Thank you so much."
