A picture named ohRudyIsntThisAFunPlace.jpgAt the end of a long productive and satisfying day, I sat down in front of the tube with some Chinese food to catch up on the news. On Paula Zahn they're talking about Martha Stewart. Same with Larry King an hour later. Aaron Brown has been pre-empted for a special about Martha Stewart. Then I read on Halley's Comment that the mainstream media wants our respect for all the in-depth reporting they do. Hey, when they respect their Chinese-food-eating "audience" and give us some interesting and meaty news from around the world, and not some blather about the kind of device Martha is going to have to sleep with, and about how her friends will think she's somehow less of a person because she went to jail. Okay we now resume our regularly scheduled broadcast.  Permanent link to this item in the archive.

Martha Stewart is in prison, hard to do a Newsweek photo shoot, but that didn't stop Newsweek from putting her on the cover, with a model's body and Marth's head, a Photoshop marvel. Permanent link to this item in the archive.

A picture named bloggerLogo.gifLukovsky's blog is back up at 5:15PM Eastern.  Lucovsky's blog has gone 404. Editorial: Lucovsky shouldn't have trashed his former employer in a Google-owned space. But you don't pull the site because of that. You learn, grow, show your mistakes, do it better next time. Mark L's former employer gets it, Google does not. The company that owns Blogger has not one clue what blogging is about.  Permanent link to this item in the archive.

Mary Jo Foley reports on Lucovsky's move to Google.  Permanent link to this item in the archive.

Kosso gave me a sneak peek at something very very cool he's working on. It's a Flash-based podcast browser. It's so funny, I was laughing out loud while playing with it. Wowowo! Permanent link to this item in the archive.

A picture named capsule.gifDavid Weinberger: "Starting in April, is going to publish thousands of topic pages, each aggregating the content from the 10 million articles in its archive, going back to 1851, including graphics and multimedia resources. Topics that get their own page might include Boston, Terrorism, Cloning, the Cuban Missile Crisis and Condoleezza Rice. News stories will link to these topic pages. And -- the Times must hope -- these pages, with their big fat permanent addresses, may start rising in Google's rankings." Permanent link to this item in the archive.

A picture named lucoThumb.jpgI've gotten a lot of email from reporters asking how I know that Mark Lucovsky, Microsoft's distinguished operating system architect, is now working at Google. Well, I have good sources. And you could always read his blog, about life at Google. He says: "Microsoft used to know how to ship software, but the world has changed. The companies that 'know how to ship software' are the ones to watch. They have embraced the network, deeply understand the concept of 'software as a service,' and know how to deliver incredible value to their customers efficiently and quickly." Permanent link to this item in the archive.

Gizmodo: "We just wanted them to suck less, not die." Permanent link to this item in the archive.
