    Great new design Garry! Kudos… . But, can you make it Mozilla-friendly? The page is all over the place. Need to do smth about your CSS place markers.
    QOTD: I love new tech, especially telematic and domotic things, but I’m afraid that instead of bringing people together it is too often used to replace people. That’s smth I hate.

    I have a (mild) concern about the exhibitionism that the new technology enables. It’s creepy and unhealthy.

    I love my computer but want my phone to be a phone and no more. (Well, maybe a PDA plus phone.) Twittering with a phone? What a waste of my life! (I do enough wasting of my life without adding that distraction.)

    As to Twitter, I don’t get it. Seriously don’t get it. I didn’t like the idea of it but I registered on Gary’s recommendation. But I don’t understand what to do with it after that. I can’t figure out how to add Gary as a friend — all I see is a way to invite friends to join up by giving Twitter their e-mail addresses. That’s not gonna happen. I wouldn’t do that to friends.

    Twitter seems like a cheesy, crappy, badly designed site. Like I said, I don’t get it.

    On a positive note: Winelibrary TV is becoming very cool and full-featured. Great work, Gary!

    Hello Wine Lovers! I have a bit of an off-topic question for everyone: Does anyone know of a website or a something that does exactly what Gary does except for Pipes and Pipe Tobacco? If anyone has heard of anything like that I would love to know about it. I’ve always thought the two went very well together – Wine and Pipes. Very classy. Mm-hmm.

    Nice. Who doesnt like a mouthful of silk? Moss Man? You remember so much about your childhood its amazing. QOTD: I think its eventually going to get to the point where most people wont go out and do anything (beach, hiking,etc) because we will have far too much time spent wasting on useless technology. I actually know some that already do. Ha.

    Very nice Gary,!! but I could not help laughing when I eared ?Douro, the next Napa Valley? 😀
    In terms of quality, everybody is entitled to his opinion, so I won?t make comparisons, but there is an historical issue:
    Wine making was introduced in Portugal by the Phoenicians between the X and the V century before Christ was born, the Douro marked region of origin was the first one to be declared in the word, by the Portuguese king D. José I. in the year 1756.

    I will definitely be looking into Portuguese wines.
    QOTD: I tried Twitter, but it said that it would never send me a text message. No explanation. I have privacy concerns, but they are outweighed by the enriching ability to access so many areas of information and to become familiar with people such as Gary V.

    Great episode. Would love to see a new one on Portugal in 2009 discussing the different regions and where the value is now.

    qotd no real concerns. not crazy about the idea of big brother constantly having everyone under surveillance 1 day. I’m more concerned about when i’m gonna see a vin jaune on your show Gary.
