  • There’s more where that came from

    Head on over to Demotivational Posters for a full gallery of these as well as a link to a site where you can make your own.

  • For the Prankster’s Toolkit

    How would you like to edit any web page as if it were a wiki? Here’s a little Javascript trick that has helped me mock up prototypes as well as spice up the odd presentation with improbable news headlines for dramatic effect. Copy and paste the following line into the address bar of your browser, […]

  • $100 off Blog Business Summit in Chicago

    Robyn reminded me that MyBlogLog is sponsoring the Blog Business Summit in Chicago in mid-September. I attended one a few years ago when I was first getting into blogging and it was a great place to meet other corporate bloggers and swap best practices. If you’re a blogging for your company or thinking about starting […]

  • Eric leaving MyBlogLog

    I’m really sorry to see Eric go. Being the "Tom of MyBlogLog" he was not only your first friend after signing up for MyBlogLog, his personality defined the community as only a co-founder can. I’ve only worked with Eric for a couple of months but it’s been a blast. Some things I’ll miss: whiteboard sessions, […]

  • Anybody want a Pownce invite?

    I have some Pownce invites left over. If anybody wants them, drop me a comment. First come, first served.

  • Andrew Keen as Linkbait?

    Unusually passionate post on the YPN Blog about Andrew Keen’s book, “The Cult of the Amateur,” which represents the latest backlash against the internet and social media in particular. Today’s internet is certainly changing our culture. But killing it? Hardly. In fact, I’d argue that the Gutenberg press, which ushered in a new era of […]

  • Nielsen/NetRatings Total Minutes metric. Sounds nice, how does it work?

In all the breathless, “the pageview is dead” stories that came out last week surrounding Nielsen/NetRatings’ press release that they will include “Total Minutes” as part of their ranking methodology, I couldn’t find any information on how the measurement would work. Don’t get me wrong, I’m all in favor of trying […]

  • Identity Management , it’s a public service

    I met Jeremiah Owyang last night and he sent me a link to a post he did a couple weeks ago on the future of Facebook. It’s an excellent post which maps out a future that may very well come to pass. To sum it up, he predicts that the current Facebook platform will eventually […]

  • Ethan Haas? 1-18-08? Let the scavenger hunt begin!

    I’m a total sucker for this kind of stuff. Can anyone tell me what this is about? Scott Beale posts a note that says it has nothing to do with JJ Abrams mysterious new trailer for 1-18-08 – this is going to be fun!

  • MyBlogLog: DNS for People

    Many moons ago I took a job managing the Sun Sparc workstations on the Fixed Income trading floor at the Tokyo branch of Lehman Brothers. TIt was a time when a 486 Compaq computer cost $5,000 (just the CPU!) and a 28.8 Supra modem would run you a couple hundred bucks. With these economics in […]
