Michael PanzecaWhen people don't ask me if MySpace of Facebook has any value, I don't tell them that it has very little value beyond helping you reconnect with co-workers that you see every day or high school friends you thought you'd shaken decades ago. Which perfectly explains why I have profiles on both.

I'm having to re-evaluate that crack bit of analysis now that I've reconnected with a friend I'd lost touch more than a decade ago, standup comic Michael Panzeca. (His signature bit was his opening line: "So, I'm stabbin' this guy...") As good a standup as he is, he's an even better person.
