  • Alameda Antique Fair

    On Sunday we went to see the Alameda Antique Fair which must be seen to be believed. There must be over 400 vendors spread out over the tarmac of the old naval airfield in Alamdeda. All sorts of weird and wonderful stuff, interesting people too. Pictures here.

  • The Mind of a Link Spammer

    The Register interviews a link spammer and we see just what we expected; a selfish brat who has no regard or sympathy for the community that allows him to thrive.

Unfortunately, there are no hard facts on the ROI which is something the industry lacks in order to move most corporate blogging projects forward.

  • Farking Google

    This one’s my favorite but there’s a whole bunch more photoshop fun over on

  • Yahoo cuts to the chase

    We’ve seen it played out over and over again. The internet has enabled consumers to go directly to the production plant for disintermediated product. Covered in detail in Michael Lewis’ book, Next, the internet has upset age old business models, putting raw materials within reach of the everyman and providing a platform for a thousand […]
