From the Pipeline – 8.1.08

Another weekend is upon us and everything is quiet on the blogosphere front. It’s almost like the bitchmeme has decided to take a summer vacation. Oh well at least I found a few things of interest in today’s FriendFeed pipeline.

13 Billboards (I laughed, I cried, I posted.) [nw] :: One Man’s Blog – these are just plain fun to find and share

Definitely No Smiling at Crocosaurus Cove [nw] :: jaunted – I don’t care how thick the plastic is you wouldn’t catch me doing this

US data centers consuming as much power as 5 million houses [nw] :: Pingdom – and this was from the 2005 figures

Taking Stock – Can Social Media Do What It Claims? [nw] :: POP! PR Jots – an interesting post that challenges social media to prove that it actually works

Dell tries to trademark “cloud computing” [nw] :: Industry Standard – another fine example of trademark stupidity
