Jason Calacanis Utah.
Leo Laporte Prisoners. Jason Calacanis does a host of shows now. He is the king of This Week in..., you now officially take the title. In fact you have thisweekin.com, right?
Jason Calacanis I got the clearance from the godfather. You gave me clearance to buy it, I bought it. And I hope to build a couple of shows and everybody is like, ‘Leo must hate you.’
Leo Laporte No, no, no, no.
Jason Calacanis ‘How did you do this to Leo?’ And I’m like, listen I asked for permission. I genuflected and I said, listen godfather I would like to…
Leo Laporte I couldn’t stop you, Mel Allen, ask Mel Allen; he’s the guy who owns This Week in Baseball. It’s the generic, but I’m thrilled that you do it and I am glad you’re doing it. You do This Week in Startups.
Jason Calacanis Yeah, and it’s doing great and we do This Week in Cloud Computing and that’s got sponsors.
Leo Laporte And you’re doing a This Week in Android apps, right?
Jason Calacanis And This Week in Android, yes. So it is going to do like niche one that you don’t get to, and, as you know, I actually even clear with you like, ‘Hey I’m thinking of doing these ones are you going to do them?’ So I am basically like I respect what you have done in the space enough that I don’t want to step in your toes.
Leo Laporte And there’s plenty of room, believe me. I need more people succeeding in this because I don’t want to be the only guy out here doing it.
Jason Calacanis What’s happening is it’s very much like Weblogs, Inc. We have all these blog stories building on each other. I get one sponsor, then they buy yours, and you know I forward sponsored onto you all the time. We are educating them on this new medium.
Leo Laporte Exactly.
Jason Calacanis Like, it’s worth sponsoring and...
Leo Laporte It’s early enough that there’s no competition going on.
Jason Calacanis There’s no competition right now. In another two years, it’s on.
Leo Laporte Yeah, I am going to kill you. I am going to kill you, Jason. Yer outta here!
Jason Calacanis [ph] The swords (79:33) are coming out.
Leo Laporte Yer outta here! Jason Calacanis...
Brett Larson The garbage man’s coming to take you out!
Leo Laporte And the garbage man – if you find a horse head in your bed Jason, you’ll know where. Actually…
Brett Larson The snow clean up begins tomorrow. Leave anything you don’t need in the drift.
Jason Calacanis Actually this is my prediction. I predict that there’ll be three or four networks like This Week in and Leo’s and they’ll all wind up merging and be like this mega company.
Leo Laporte Yeah. I don’t want to run it
Jason Calacanis [ph] Adam Ferry’s (80:01) doing interesting stuff. No, I just think it’s going to be an exit for everybody because somebody will come and say hey let’s put five of these things together and get scale. You have five things making a million or two million dollars each. Put them together, all of a sudden you’ve got scale.
Leo Laporte Great idea.
Dwight Silverman And then you get rid of everybody.
Leo Laporte Yeah, that’s all right; by then I’m old, I want to be on the beach anyway. Mahalo.com is Jason’s human-powered website that has great information on it. Dwight Silverman is at the Tech Blog at blogs.chron.com/techblog and you could read his stuff there, including his weekly linkroll which Dwight I had to confess gives me the backbone of the newscasts for the whole week.
Dwight Silverman Well I have a great time doing it. I think that I missed a link post yesterday because I was helping with our earthquake/tsunami coverage, and I felt horribly guilty and I thought of you Leo, I thought I’ve let Leo down…
Leo Laporte Yeah you have let me down. I don’t have any stories from Friday.
Dwight Silverman But we had good coverage from the tsunami and earthquake. So…

Coached by his father John Fleming, as well as school team coaches, Fleming is a down-to-earth athlete who places a great deal of emphasis on off-court activities, namely school, video games, and Bible studies. A devoutly religious family, the Flemings strive to make sure that Jaylin is a humble and composed adolescent who will grow and develop in character throughout high school and collegiate play.2
Whether or not he will become a future NBA star remains to be seen, since it is difficult to judge the basketball potentials of a player his age. However, Fleming's potential is undeniable, as well as his work ethic and perseverance. Jaylin himself states that "I never feel pressure to play...I want to play basketball. I just stay humble and keep working hard." Regarding his burgeoning basketball career, he states only that "I'm a humble kid who's trying to achieve a goal."3
Fleming has garnered positive reviews from many coaches outside his own school. "You can tell by his passion for the game, how much he loves the game of basketball," says Morgan Park coach Nick Irving. "You can see that he has the desire for it. Jaylin has a look in his eyes that he won't be denied."4
"I've never actually seen a kid like this," says Knicks head athletic trainer Roger Hinds. "As far as his age, he's the best that I've seen," says Refiloe Lethunya, a former Division I player, coach and NBA scout.5
Perhaps the most significant accolade comes from Derrick Rose, himself a relatively young basketball star with the hometown Bulls. "He's better than me -- that's what's crazy about it," Rose says. "His talent is one of a kind. Kids his age rarely do the stuff he does....He does moves that a grown-up does."6
