More Rocketboom Advice

13 Jul ’06

Jeff Jarvis posts some advice to Rocketboom from the pen of Fred Graver, executive producer of VH1’s Best Week Ever, and it’s the smartest commentary yet. One message: move on; nothing to see here, folks. Indeed.

It’s nice to see Andrew moving on with a new ‘cast that’s getting positive critical reviews – this is what I’d hoped would come out of the production delay that (inexplicably, surely) attracted so much criticism. I think it’s a definite improvment, and Alec’s review mirrors my impressions.

But it really is a shame that Congdon is still focussed on publicly spinning her status as a sorrowful victim. How about this as a stock answer: “Andrew and I do have some transition issues to resolve, but for now I’m focussed on the future and my passion: bringing great content to media, old and new. I’m looking at multiple offers with my agent and will make a decision soon”. My sense is that the Time piece reads like dreck, and was a lost opportunity to present herself as talent on a par with the level of the hubbub.
