PS - I follow Guy Kawasaki on Twitter, and he shares some great stuff:) I started following him after watching him moderate the panel Teen Entrepreneurs Tell It Like It Is at the Ypulse Youth Marketing Mashup 2009 conference in San Francisco.

As for The Valley Girl Show ... clearly I've been missing out:) Past episodes here.
