Soundbites & Links

  • Are blogs headed for a slowdown? “Research by Gartner, according to the magazine, found that the number of blogs will top out at about 100 million this summer. But it also noted that some 200 million blogs are no longer being updated–many of them abandoned by their authors.” What a terrible measure of the health of blogging. Lets look at the growth of posts, comments, video content. This is the equivalent of measuring the health of the Internet on the basis of URL registrations. Garbage.
  • I’ve got some Joost beta invites if you’d like one. Still can’t get it to work on Vista though.
  • Interesting: Scribd. Scribd is a free online library where anyone can upload. Use our embeddable PDF player to publish and view documents right in your web browser.
  • Like this from Nick:

“I like to think of the blogosphere as a vast, earth-engirdling digestive track, breaking down the news of the day into ever finer particles of meaning (and ever more concentrated toxins). Another word for “parasitic,” in this context, is “critical.” Blogging is at its essence a critical form, a means of recycling other writings to ensure that every nutritional molecule, whether real or imagined, is fully consumed. To be called a literary parasite is no insult. It’s a compliment.”

    I was involved with Skype pretty early on and it would be great to see first hand what Niklas and Janus are doing this time. If you have any more beta invites, I would love to give it a shot.

    Thank you,
    Josh Morgan

      That was my suspicion! Once i took the searcncep and got a good look at things, i realized it looked more like an upended bottle than a tap.Still, it was quite funny that during this exciting bar sequence what’s Andy doing? Checking out the booze supply. XD

    It’s tough, but you have to remember that it’s a good pernat’s job to make themselves redundant eventually she has to be able to manage without you, and these are the first steps along the way .They suddenly look so tiny in their own room, don’t they?
