Jon Stewart and Stephen Colbert on Blogging
Funny funny funny funny segment on the Daily Show about the recent blogging hoo-haws. Warning: Salty Language.

Blockbuster busted

Saturday, February 19th, 2005

New Jersey’s attorney general has brought suit against Blockbuster for consumer fraud, complaining about Blockbuster’s intelligence-insulting “No more late fees” bull.

We’ve been complaining about this lie since Blockbuster started trumpeting this crap a couple of months ago. Dear Blockbuster: we’re not as stupid as you think we are.

Netflix!

Endlessly entertaining legal threats
I’m not sure I would have the courage to send these types of responses, but I admire his pluck (and Sweden’s laws).

Blogs and libel
He talks to Counsel for The New York Times Co., getting his perspective on how bloggers can get sued. Truth is still always the best defense.

IE7 is coming
For now, still using Firefox when required to use a PC.

Think twice before sending that Valentine at work
Interesting BostonWorks article about the perils of declaring your love to a co-worker.

How to read a business book
Interesting tips. I read the same “Love is the Killer App” book, and I highly recommend it. It may be the first of the book reviews I should write for the site.

The Basics of Search Engine Optimization
A nice writeup of concepts I often explain to clients.

How to make a “life poster”
Fabulous use of iPhoto. Now I just need to convince A. to let me put posters up in the new house…

Russell Neufeld
Friend and former Abuzz CTO starts blogging.

C|Net puts out a branded RSS Aggregator
It won’t be long before all the media companies have branded RSS readers featuring their own content plus articles from competitors and weblogs. And yes, LTV will soon have RSS for all the sections (it’s done, but it’s bundled with a couple of other things that aren’t done yet.)

Google Maps
I wrote about this before, but it’s really really neat.

Nifty name viewer

Thursday, February 10th, 2005

This is a really neat graphical interface that tells you the popularity of names over the past 100 years. A few minutes of fun playing with it.

And boy, Jason was a popular name in the ’70s.

Back in action

Yay, I’m finally back online.

A couple of months ago, I transferred all my domains to a new server setup to scale Life Times Voice, and in the process I broke my installation of Movable Type. I finally got a chance to look at it this morning, and I’ve spent the past few hours wrestling with it. Grr.

It’s funny, you really start to miss blogging when you aren’t able to do it for a while. Now, I can use my Life Times Voice blog just for business things, while using this one for my regular thoughts and musings.
