If this Dream Media Team forms--it's Game Over for the rest

I am always pleased to see Bulgaria based Dimitar Vesselinov's smart and pithy comments on SVW...

Here is a recent post from Dimitar's blog: The World 2 Come-My Lifetime Digital Memory. It's about his dream media team (thank you for the inclusion :-)

It's a killer media team and it would be Game Over for all the rest, if you could swing it. But we are talking Jupiter-planet size egos here, which have trouble co-existing in the same solar system, let alone online.

Interesting choice of Sir Richard Branson...
Also, lots of updates, clearly Dimitar has been feeling a bit of heat to add names to the team :-)

[I propose that we add Dimitar Vesselinov to the team as Chief Blogger. Let someone else do it for a change, I want to spend some time with my kids.]
