A New York Times reporter left angry, Brazil-bashing Sarah Lacy in the dust; a blogger embarked on a glorious knitting weekend and a Barack Obama supporter cursed out Congressional Republicans. The Twitterati have already checked out.
TechCrunch's Sarah Lacy couldn't get into Brazil this week, supposedly because the country's visa officials are incompetent. And yet somehow the New York Times' Jenna Wortham finagled herself entry into that exact same country. It's enough to make Peter Kafka think Lacy's problems had more to do with her than with the entire nation of Brazil being somehow incompetent!
Lifestyle blogger Terri Potratz will spend this weekend knitting, and she's both stoked and proud.
Gizmodo's Brian Lam saw his long weekend erode before his very eyes. This frightened at least one of his Gawker Media compatriots!
MTV's Maya Baratz was impressed by nerd gear during a coffee break.
