A random that should not be taken too seriously and should have been done anonymously...
What's a Vacation Anyway: In theory I am on vacation right now, but all that means while in a connected location is no long blog entries and no social bookmarking.
The Future of TV: Watching people watching TV
Barely Existing: Honestly, if you are going to blog about the virtues of aggregation, offer full text feeds so we can read what you preach.
Social Network Exit Turned Spam: Around the time he left some YASNSs, every time his post is picked up by Topix and other aggregators, instead of content we get this social spam: Stowe Boyd, President/COO of Corante, is a well-known media subversive, and an internationally recognized authority on real-time, collaborative and social technologies.
Flickrcasting: Why can't I subscribe to a photo stream that automagically puts the original photo in iPhoto and my photo-enabled iPod? Or extract enclosures and photos within blog posts the same way?
Keyword: My little test with a spammer verified he is plucking "Keyword" to fodder is fake blogs. Intelliseek did learn to filter him out. My guess is he is a SEO trying to pickup clients for keyword optimization. Anyway, I figured better to raise his noise to the level of signal to let real people calibrate their indexes.
Gas Price Indicatr: Gas is too fucking expensive. Maybe sending a moblog of the pump helps people feel each other's pain. But could be an interesting indicatr if aggregated and visualized.
Why the French Hate Us: Google Maps charts Mountain View and London, but they are off the map.
SmellyBlog: I got wind of a new startup working on an olfactory blog service. If we can share text, pictures and video -- there has to be dollars in scents.
Oh, the Humanity: Getting BoingBoinged, the new /., sure does help you gauge the vast opinions out there on potentially paltry subjects. Also, apparently there are more than geeks in this world.
Drill This In Your Head: Just because you blog as in using a tool, doesn't mean you know how to use it. Look to norms: link, attribute your sources, make quotes distinguishable from your own words, read when others link to you, link back, it's called a conversation, you should know the drill.
Tom DeLay: Once again proves the theory: if you let golf run your life your life will be run over.
Comments Are Worthless: Show me and my readers the linked posts from people who can express a facet of their identity on the web (should be everyone, the big adoption problem), sorted in order of link rank. Technorati should do this after letting people sort keyword searches by Authority.
Calling a Winner: You can't call winners in horizontals. Like Google vs. Yahoo vs. MSN vs. Snap on Search (what is the IN or ON for Snap anyway?). But you can call winners in verticals.And at least not get into trouble. Also, only way to beat Google is a different initial entry point than the command line, they own that.
Double Punctuation: I picked up adding two spaces before periods when writing long papers. Technically, it's acceptable punctuation. Stylistically, it's a horrible habit. And you can thank Steve Gillmor for giving me heck about its (pronounced: heckaboutis). Fuck, it's just words, man, you get my meaning.
On to Him: Brian Dear is on to something about vulture vendors, or rather, they are on to him. My advice: disconnect the phone, leave a message telling them to go through LinkedIn or get a blog.
Speaking of Which: What are your favorite accountant, audit, banker, lawyer, recruiter, insurance agent, office supply, web host blogs? Harder to name than you think. Now think of markets you can turn to. Now think of markets that are spam free. Harder to name than you think.
WYSIWHAA?: Which is worse, debugging HTML you have written or that assisted with a wysiwyg editor?
Blog Revolution: Condy Rice is worried about the centralization of Russian electronic media, with good reason. If only there was affordable decentralized media. The developed and developing world is fine and good -- but the biggest untapped political impact of blogs could be in Cyrllic.
Speaking of Revolutions: They say that France is teetering on a social revolution of 1968 porportions, because they won't sign the EU constitution they helped foster. Leadership requires following through.
Explorer: Tourism is going to places you and the rest of the market pay to know about beforehand. Exploring is purposely going elsewhere. Pros explore to places nobody has gone, Amateurs explore to places they don't know. Somewhere in between going places friends recommend that tourists don't know. Personally, I like getting lost on purpose.
