Why Chris Pirillo Reminds Me Of Oprah

There's no easy way to explain this. I'd seen a lot of pix of Oprah before I finally met her and then when I finally saw her up close she looked like some black girl with Oprah's head stuck on her. Same with Chris Pirillo, not that he looks a lot like Oprah, no, that's not what I mean, but he looks just like some great, cute geek with Chris Pirillo's head stuck on him. He is pretty damned brilliant and makes the word entrepreneur sound like some slow-moving washed-up has-been word. There must be a better word that includes the "whirl" feeling Chris' brain gives off. So what I'm trying to say is that if you don't think Chris will be famous, like WAY famous one of these day, think again. And then there is Gretchen.
