In case you are ever tempted to mistake blog fame for real fame, read this Bill Simmons column on riding through South Beach with NBA journeyman Damon Jones during Superbowl week:
As we started our drive down Ocean, Damon called it "the most entertaining street in America." And since he's played for eight different NBA teams, he would know. We cruised along at a slow pace, with people occasionally screaming out "DJ!" or "Damon" or even "Wassup boi!" at him.
Jones has never made an All-Star team, won a championship, or even averaged 12 points per game.
Now imagine that Robert Scoble, Chris Pirillo, and Jason Calacanis were cruising through South Beach in a black Escalade. Would anyone have a frakking clue who they were?
