If you run a blog that is nothing but “speedlink” style posts, you will be removed from my feed reader shortly. Linkblogs are great when paired with real content. If you can’t generate any real content of your own, you’re wasting my bandwidth. Bye bye.
FOWA Presentation on Venture Capital
I saw this presentation that Ben Holmes of Index Ventures gave at the FOWA Conference in London “Everything you need to know about Venture Capital“… He put his slides on slideshare so take a look. (BTW, Slideshare rocks) Here is an entrepreneur’s take on the slideshow: Think of this as […]
If you want value, don't listen to dnScoop
There’s an interesting new service out there that everybody’s talking about. Trouble is, Seth Godin is the only one call an apple an apple. The service is dnscoop and it’s respectable enough to be on a shared host that never seems to be up. When you can get to the […]

The Happiest Moment in the RSS and Reader Marriage is in the Engagement
Over the weekend there was a huge buzz over new RSS subscriber numbers that Feedburner was reporting due to a change in how Google Reader was reporting their stats. The bounce was reported as high as 250% by bloggers like Jeremy Shoemaker to more average bounces of around 30% by […]
Second Life Encounters
It’s freaky when you login to Second Life for the first time (Evar!) and within 5 minutes, a reader can ID you. Five minutes and I’m greeted with “Blogger, Baltimore, SXSW… you must be Technosailor?” Insanity. Thanks, Sean for IDing me and giving me a laugh.
