Merlin Mann has expanded his “entropic web empire” to include an online program simply titled The Merlin Show. Maybe better known for his work compiling funny lists on 5ives or giving advice an how to get things done at 43 Folders, Mann in person is a whirling dervish of comedic energy. His “Web 1.0 Summit” was one of my hilarious highlights of 2005.
Produced with Ben Durbin under the aegis of Pixel Corps, the show’s first guest is singer-songwriter and well-known web nerd Jonathan Coulton. According to his introduction, Merlin hopes to feature “Friends and people that I admire,” to ask them “how they keep things wired together in this modern age.” I’ll definitely be watching.
