End of World of Ends?

He said pass it on, so I’m outting him big time.

My friend Mr. David (HM) Spector has nicely taken to the blogging medium with a scathing discussion of why the FCC’s ruling on Media Ownership trumps “World of Ends.” Not that I wasn’t impressed before, but this is really, really good.

Dean is back

From Dean Landsman’s weblog: DeanLand.WebLogs.Com : Give Us Today Our Daily Blog

This blogging business is really quite odd. The more often I write, the fewer page views it seems I get. The less often I post something new, the more traffic, page views, and response it seems the blog inspires.

Dean and I had coffee the other night at Starbucks, but alas, neither one of us had a digital camera with us to take a picture of the event. But I’m glad to see he’s back and blogging.

Direct TV has a perception problem

According to this web site, DIRECTV Privacy Sucks.

DIRECTV will give out their customer’s account number to anybody who calls their 800-number (1-800-DIRECTV) and asks.

The site lists all sorts of nasty things you could do, like cancelling your neighbor’s DirectTV, etc. He doesn’t advocate it. He is just making a point- they don’t require any sort of security to give our your information.

When I saw the site, it reminded me of a Cluetrain moment – someone’s trying to have a conversation with DirectTV, and, failing that, is conversing with other customers. Fascinating.

How cool is this

Looking for some downloadable music, I went to visit Emusic. And guess who I found on the rock and pop page?

Bari Koral totally rocks! I’m so psyched for you, girl! Great description to go with the front-page placement!

a New Blogging Tool

   I’ve discovered w.bloggar, a new blogging tool that’s a Windows client. I’ve yet to strech it’s limits – this is my first post. I’ll let you know how I like it.
It has an interesting feature: it takes what’s playing in the WM Player 9 and shows it in the post at the end. Or at least it is supposed to.
Update:
Duh. I had to install WM Player 9. I was using v.8.
So let’s see if it works now.
