Cory Doctorow on ownership of “Web 2.0”
Dave Winer on the Apple decision.
Wired: “The Sixth District Court of Appeals on Friday roundly rejected Apple’s argument that the bloggers weren’t acting as journalists when they posted internal document about future Apple products.“
Warning: geeky stuff ahead. Sometimes I find myself getting prompted for a helper application when I click on weblog “subscribe” buttons. But I’m clicking because I want to look at the XML. Firefox’s dialog box doesn’t anticipate this, only giving me options to Open a helper application or to Save the XML to disk. There’s no “open here” or “view source”. Argh. Well, I found the trick: use Firefox itself as the helper application, and the XML opens up in a new tab. Bingo!
CrunchNotes: “I sense that a lynching is about to occur in the blogosphere.”
I seem to be getting more comment spam lately. Spam that I have to manually intervene on to remove or moderate. Either the blog is more popular or spammers are gaining on WordPress/Akismet.
