Google poisoner tried to murder husband
"The jury was told that Knight used the internet search engine Google to find a method of killing her husband,"
I wonder what google will do when the Judge passes a decesion in which the content clearly mentions "Google" as being the primary instrument/method of planning of a murder !!
Will Google now sue the Judge/Attorney for using the brandname Google in a=legal document without consent of their IP Department ??
Their reply "We will consider it when we are reviewing our web strategy for this year."
Hopefully, their plan efforts for a web strategy does not take too long !
Magda , I'm waiting....
Nice definition. Read more about it there
Con'grats to Chris for being an advocate of OpenID and May we all live in interesting times
Thanks for noticing—we're going to fix it up and have things back to normal soon."
Way to go Twitter !! - Yep we all have noticed. Scalability and incident response of web2.0 is reallly taxing and a near era of response factoring needs to be built. It's not easy

Joel is kinda reserved in passing judgment on this one .
Why is this important, the world is getting smaller and smaller based on Mobile Technologies. I remember a long time ago I was infected with the RFID virus and noted that in Japan the RFID market space is researching ways of directly communicating to user community on the fly. That is to the generic user walking down the street, in terms of beeps - like saying "hey you wanted this article/thing/place, its now - just 3 feet away" - concept.
Now we need to extend that concept and if I scan a google barcode on an ad, glance at it and if I like what I read, I can then store in on my device. This then radiates that info to scanners/readers as I move around my pathway of life. When I get beeped its a scanner that is situated close by that reminds me that I flagged the item. Yep, just like playing a blue tooth game :)- .. so moving the product info to be on the wire and into the ether for the consumer. Well, is it intrusive - yeah it could be. but barcode are barcodes just like Sku number which you see at every darn item that you buy.. see the inter- relation now ??

So a little bit of keyboad exercise and I got his number and gave him a call, just to verify that the number that I had was really him. It was.
So in my idiotic analogy mode;
So what does "xxx" represent - IMHO, thats it's not in private mode anymore when someone obtains's your images. Its like saying I an't listed nowhere, but if think you got me- try giving me call - seemed to be like a challenge ( me bad - sucker for challenges !!) .
Just because customer have put your trust in your application and your service's does not mean that the blackhater out there can't do the obvious. .. Andy Baio already said it best
However, I must say - Don did a remarkable job in his rebuttal post. The Smug Team were very professional and involved within the conversation,as it unfolded. Kudos' to them !!
Update#1: Don's challenge of "a chance to strike it rich: I’ll give $1,000 USD to anyone who can get a copy of this photo" . Both Tony and Philipp crack it. Don is on pin's and needle's.
Tis to cute..
I found a funny bug at Twitter. I reply to a twit of Shel's , yet my replys seems to be displayed below his. How can that be possible ? Am I am working from the future - one minute ahead of real time ??
Their article - Sick Transit Gloria is published at HBS within the annual of the best ideas for 2008 , yep thats the Harvard Business School
"On February 4, 2007, Giambrone and a number of other TTC officials participated in a unique live event dubbed TransitCamp. Created by members of the Toronto blogging community, the grassroots meeting melded citizen activism with crowd-sourcing. About 120 attendees used real-time Web 2.0 collaboration tools to engage one another live and in person."
Way to Go Dude n Dudettes - and for the rest of who don't get it- kindly continue to bang the stones together ... :)-

Advice from a Tree By Ilan Shamir
Stand Tall and Proud
Sink your roots deeply into the Earth
Reflect the light of a greater source
Think long term
Go out on a limb
Remember your place among all living beings
Embrace with joy the changing seasons
For each yields its own abundance:
The Energy and Birth of Spring
The Growth and Contentment of Summer
The Wisdom to let go of leaves in the Fall
The Rest and Quiet Renewal of Winter
Feel the wind and the sun
And delight in their presence
Look up at the moon that shines down upon you
And the mystery of the stars at night.
Seek nourishment from the good things in life
Earth, fresh air, light
Be content with your natural beauty
Drink plenty of water
Let your limbs sway and dance in the breezes
Remember your roots

"hitchhiker's guide to twitter"
"davewiner BTW that's a googlewhack. http://tinyurl.com/2dx2oa 24 minutes ago from web"
So here's the guide

John B , just got his Series A funding in early 2005 with revenues of $4.5 million in 2006, its first year in operation. Projections for 2007 were $30 million in sales and "several million dollars" in profit."
Does not make sense for a firm Offer of $100Million for FM Media. Secondly the network is highly dependent on Blog's . However the blogosphere is actually contracting and not expanding. So its becoming a diminishing market. Maybe FM really did well and YR07 revenue's went thru the roof and they made about $40-50Million. Then John declining would make sense, as he can still milk the blogosphere. His venture can reposition the product and see where the product is positioned and if it is possible to attract new segments. And that could be his strategy . Embedded Ad's in YouTube ???

However MAshable now blogs about this and points to Aviv's post. But should not the mashable crew do a little bit more research to figure out who really cut the vectors ?
For the record , it was Miroslav Lučinskij, of Critical Security in Lithuania who pwned Skype !!
Footnote to Mashable crew : for some reason your comments page hates me "Invalid email/page link or password." :(-
This morning I hear chatter that at Yahoo Inc., 1500-2,500 jobs that may be eliminated in the next two weeks. This works out too about 10-15% of their net net total talent capital. The company has a total of about 12,000 employees.
More info can be found at Silicon Valley Insider. Henry has the scoop !!
So what does this mean for the global economy in terms of talent capital and retention? With a recession looming ahead , I think there is really troubled waters ahead for the IT industry. This is the beginning of a bubble burst of Web2.0 !! Today's trading for ticker YHOO

This is crazy why would a gaming company want to take down a online game of thier's. Should not they be thankful to Jayant and Rajat Agarwalla, who founded Scrabulous.com in 2006. It's brought life back into this game. !!
I am routing that Hasbro actually buys them out and hire's them to keep the program running in the FB envoirnment. Off course they still get their $$ via ad serving !
