I was looking forward to getting up at 3:30am this morning and flying to Chicago for the FeedBurner board meeting. At 1am I woke up with the feeling that a bug had crawled into my ear and was gnawing on my eardrum. I suffered through the next few hours but at 3:30am decided I was unfit for getting out of bed and schlepping to the airport so I rolled over and slept some more.
I joined the FeedBurner board meeting by phone. By the time it was over, I felt well enough to head to New York at the end of the day. However, I missed the moment of truth at the board meeting when the board morphed into eight Dick Costolo’s.
