- Link by Link - Delaying News in the Era of the Internet - NYTimes.com - "In the case of Wikipedia, this is emphatically not what the site was meant to do. One of the principles of the site is No Original Research — every fact must have appeared somewhere reputable before it can be repeated...Yet, time and again Wikipedia has been the place where news has broken, usually from anonymous writers who report a death on a person’s article page, like that of the feminist writer Andrea Dworkin in 2005, or, a year later, the killing of the film director and actress Adrienne Shelley in Greenwich Village."
- Cody's, landmark Berkeley bookstore, closes - Sad. Harvard Square is pretty slim pickings these days too with the Coop the only major store left. (Though it was good to see the Globe Corner Bookstore reopen in a new location much tomy pleasant surprise.)

- Mad Men - Very Short List - "...[last season] watching TV became a depressing exercise. The saving grace? AMC’s gleaming 1960’s-era drama Mad Men." Fully agree. It tries a bit too hard at times to look and act period but well worth watching.
- Delicious founder leaves Yahoo | Tech news blog - CNET News.com - "Yahoo believes there are plenty other folks to keep Delicious healthy" Seems rather optimistic presumption on the part of Yahoo to presume that there was anything about del.icio.us especially helthy to begin with--other than healthy share of mind in a product category that they've helped to make a backwater.
