- When Google disowns you | Software as Services | ZDNet.com - This may apply less to Google, but most Web 2.0 companies are very lightly staffed for their transaction volume. My observation is that many are not really prepared to deal well with issues that require a human to individually resolve.
- 451 CAOS Theory » LinuxWorld 2008 - nobody cares - I didn't even seriously consider attending LinuxWorld this year and I have seen a real downturn in the LinuxWorld-related briefing requests, etc. And the comments are unintentionally hilarious--the Linux Hater's blog couldn't have done it better.
- John Beardsworth Photography News/Blog - Using Lightroom 2 smart collections for workflow.
- The Reality Club: ON "IS GOOGLE MAKING US STUPID" By Nicholas Carr - Lots of interesting discussion by smart people here.
- Rackable Shares Slide After Earnings Miss - Data Center Knowledge - I wouldn't read too much into this but does at least suggest the bargaining power held by large-scale computing providers.
- Your honor, he didn't mean to poison readers! - Dishing - Boston.com - Oopsie.
- Scott Rosenberg’s Wordyard » Blog Archive » Sarah Lacy’s Once You’re Lucky: Money doesn’t change everything - Good succinct thoughts on some of the threads that went tinto Web 2.o.
- tecosystems » Big Brother is Watching You. On Twitter. - No easy answer here. I guess that one could have two accounts and keep the personal one invitation only. And make those invitations strictly for "real friends" as opposed to professional acquaintances that I more or less like. I felt similarly when I got my first professional friend-request on facebook. I'm more or less resigned to it but mostly because I don't really have an active network of friends on facebook. I might feel differently if I did.
- Inside Lightroom - Lots of presets.
- Flagstaff Lake - Going to try doing this in a couple of weeks, weather permitting.
- Experience Backpacking in Restructured Iraq - Umm... Words elude me. via @guykawasaki
