Everyone starts of with zero readers so we have all been there. The point remains that sometimes showing those stats can cripple you instead of help you.
I read NxE’s list of the 50 most influential bloggers. By the time I got to #1 I was laughing at the ridiculousness of it. If you read the trackbacks and comments it’s pretty obvious the list is whacked. And let me disclaim – no, I don’t think I should have been on the list. […]
MySpace demanded that GoDaddy pull the plug on Seclists.org, which hosts some 250,000 pages of mailing list archives and other resources, because a list of thousands of MySpace usernames and passwords was archived on the site. GoDaddy complied. In a move that Seclists.org owner Fyodor Vaskovich said happened with no prior notice, the company deleted […]
2007 predictions. The next week or so there will be many entries about it. When I read those, I think: who cares? Really, what shall be shall be. Occasionally I come across one that intrigues me.

Given that definition, that would mean there are “blog networks” not being recognized as such.
Dave Winer poses an interesting question: Wouldn’t it be interesting if every certified A-lister, by convention, didn’t blog during the third week of every month. What if that idea caught on? Yes Dave, that would be interesting…in an amusing but disastrous type of way. Memeorandum wouldn’t update for a week (and sites like them). Many […]
It seems Match.com is being sued by a man who claims Match.com is paying employees to go on fake dates. I have to admit, every time I hear Match.com I think of Chris and Ponzi who I “think” met through Match.com and are happy. I personally don’t see myself using a service like that because, […]
A friend of mine asked me why I don’t “get into” the connect services. You know like Yahoo, Hi5, LinkedIn – those types of services where I am connected to who I know and people can view who I know and contact who I know…those types of services. Nope, not into them. Why…besides it’s none […]
