  • SiteDigger 2.0

    Foundstone, a subsidiary of McAffe publishes software called SiteDigger. The publishers describes it’s purpose: SiteDigger 2.0 searches Google’s cache to look for vulnerabilities, errors, configuration issues, proprietary information, and interesting security nuggets on web sites. The package is free for the download and all you need is a Google API key to run it. Obviously, […]

  • Jupiter Blogs & ROI

    Closest thing I’ve see so far to a statement on the ROI of a corporate blog can be found on Alan Meckler’s JupiterResearch blog.

  • A9 Yellow Pages, teaching an old dog new tricks

    I would be remiss if I didn’t pile on to the hubub about Amazon’s new Yellow Pages search over on the A9 site. John Battelle’s got the scoop on how it was put together. In short, Manber and co. (urged on by Jeff Bezos, who Manber says was "very involved") strapped GPS-enabled digital video camera-cum-terabyte […]

  • Up on two wheels

    It was a big weekend for Tyler. He finally got the hang of riding his bicycle without training wheels. If you look closely at the picture to the left, you can see that both training wheels are off the ground. He was besides himself when he started to get rolling – laughing to himself like […]

  • Napa

    I was up in Napa for two days at the New Communications Forum, a conference about bloggers for PR professionals. While up there I learned from someone that the place to go is not the French Laundry ("overrated") but the Greystone which is the West Coast campus for the Culinary Institute of America. One of […]

  • Andy Lark

    Ok. Last post about the NewComm conference. Andy Lark, formally a VP of Marketing at Sun, is now out on his own as a speaker, evangelist, and consultant for firms that are looking for someone to help them with their blogging strategy. Shameless plug: Andy is on TypePad on an account that he started while […]

  • New Communications Forum

    Just got back from two days at the New Communications Forum which was an interesting mix of old hand bloggers meeting with PR professionals to talk about the impact of blogging on the art of Public Relations. Lots of interest as everyone understands the potential of this new medium but we all realize that we’re […]

  • Taquitos.net

    No lie here, click the screen shot on the left – the 12th most popular RSS feed on My Yahoo is Taquitos.net Let’s see, Techbargins.com. . . check, CNET News.com, ok, that seems right. Wired News, yes, I’ll take that. Braingle brain teasers – yep that might be fun . . . and – Taquitos.net? […]

  • Krap Dance

    I consider myself pretty culturally sensitive but this one’s too good to pass up. At a local Cambodian restaurant which we frequent I spotted this poster up on the wall. This is absolutely no comment on the quality of their food nor what it may do to you as you digest it but one has […]

  • GM Blogs

    I’m here at the New Communications Forum conference up in Napa, now in the second session on "Corporate Blogging" and so far Bob Lutz’s General Motors Blog, Fast Lane has been mentioned at least five times as a blog that’s been done right and an example to study and follow.     – it has […]
