Aussie Blog Search Engine Launches

Aussie outfit Gnoos has launched a blog search engine. Haven’t played with it too much yet.

Meanwhile, Ask is doing the same, but as a new feature that better integrates and enhances Bloglines. Richard McManus and TechCrunch have more.

Tragic…

I pondered blogging this through the afternoon after reading it in the Sydney Morning Herald but couldn’t bring myself to write about it – It seemed inappropriate to look as such a tragic event through the lens of blogging. CNet then got me rethinking. This is truly a tragic story but if nothing else it reminds us of how powerful this medium is for telling the story and reaching out to friends and family. And, what amazing courage and strength people have in putting fingers to keyboard and laying tragedy bare for us to read.

My thoughts are with the Van Ryn family.

RSS Readers…

Just got my new Sony notebook. Love the form factor. Keyboard is a little weird to get used to – a tad squishy after the PowerBook. For some reason they shipped me a high-capacity battery – weird.

Anyway – was looking for a list of RSS readers. This one seemed pretty comprehensive. I’ll test a few and let you know. One thing I do suggest looking at is Internet Explorer 7. Has some good capabilities for capturing feeds, storing them in folders and regular updates. The interface is pleasant and it offers tabbed browsing.

On OPML Feeds

PR Week has a short but good piece on OPML in which I’m quoted along with Steve who touts their value in demonstrating that influencers are reading the blogs they are targeting. The assumption of course being that we read the all blogs in our OPML file 🙂 Steve also points to a good peice over at Techcrunch.
