Beside the fact that a friend of mine just reminded me that we are due for 25 to 30cm of snow over night (thanks a lot Larry) the rest of my day has done no better but I think I’m beginning to see the upside coming my way in the distance. I the meantime here’s a few things I managed to snag from the pipeline when I wasn’t thinking about cowering in a corner somewhere.
Digg CEO To TechCrunch Editor: Rumors Are “Completely Inaccurate” :: Allen Stern – here’s how the story breaks down – TechCrunch reports Digg.com pimping itself for the sum of $200 million which is suppose to have Google and Microsoft sniffing around Rose’s butt. Digg comes back with yer all nuts Digg isn’t for sale. TechCrunch lobs back with the ol’ “Let’s see how this plays out” … In other words it’s Friday and everyone utters a big *YAWN*
louisgray.com: A Brief History of the Site :: Louis Gray – Louis is one of my favorite bloggers even if he does have a weak spot for Apple products. In a post today he gives a brief synopsis of how his blog has grown over the last couple of years. It was nice to see my name be mixed in with some of who I consider some of the best bloggers around – Thanks bud.
Transparency Isn’t A Substitute For Privacy :: Techdirt – an excellent post by Timothy Lee that succinctly leaves a gaping rip in the supposition that transparency is our greatest protection and suggests instead that this in fact leads the average citizen wide open to abuse.
[Retro FriendFeed] Check out AltaVista.com, a new hypertext search engine, this beats Yahoo!! :: Paul Buchheit via FriendFeed – first it was Ask.com going all girlie on us now it’s AltaVista bringing simplicity back to the search engine.
Calacanis Fires People Who Have A Life :: TechCrunch – nothing like making Jason Calacanis look like the Internet version of Scrooge.
