No, not that human cost.

I’m talking about the miserable guy who recently got stuck with Jason Calacanis’ old cell phone number.

“This is Mark,” he said, somewhat desparately, when I called yesterday. I asked for Jason.

him, clearly exasperated: “This is his old number. Who is Jason?!”

me: “He runs a bunch of blogs. You know what a blog is?”

him: “Like personal diaries online right?”

me: “You’re going to be getting a lot of calls today.”

Jason, I know you do the Plaxo thing. For Mark’s sake, use it!
