I've arrived at Ritchie for tonight's OPML roadshow, and a special guest (a surprise) got here before me. We posed for a picture. For ten points, who's the special guest? Permanent link to this item in the archive.

Jason Calacanis asks if you delete someone's feed when they die? I think you do. I also delete cell phone listings. I did it a couple of years ago when my uncle died. It was a sad moment. But I'm never going to call that number. His last girlfriend got his cellphone. He was a neat person. I left his blog where it was when he died. Added a note saying he was gone. I'll keep it going as long as I can.  Permanent link to this item in the archive.

The BBC learns what we learned on 9/11, blogs are incredibly useful tools when trying to make sense out of chaos. Permanent link to this item in the archive.

On this day two years ago, Chris Lydon's "spoken word tour" of the blogosphere continued with an interview of poet Jim Behrle.  Permanent link to this item in the archive.

Doc on Technorati. "Technorati's failings have done a lot to cost some users faith in the service. There are still outages and breakdowns." Permanent link to this item in the archive.

Fortune: "Podcasting combines the best aspects of TiVo and blogging." Permanent link to this item in the archive.

A picture named williams.jpgRussell Holliman started what became a fascinating thread on the Podcasters mail list. Apparently Odeo is repurposing feeds and they make casters jump through hoops to "claim" their feeds. Holliman says: "I didn't ask to be there." Yup. And Odeo isn't on the community mail list to participate in the conversation. At some point these companies will realize that their plan to suck the podcasting community into their gated world didn't work, and the smart ones will come be part of the community, or better yet, spawn from the community. Evan should know this, that's how blogging took root. Where's his podcast? And why isn't he on the podcasting mail list? Permanent link to this item in the archive.

BlogCritics: "The White House Press Corps came roaring back today, discovering the Is Karl Rove Guilty of Leaking a CIA Operative's Name story -- just nine days after most other media began reporting it." Permanent link to this item in the archive.

WSJ: Should Newspapers Sponsor Blogs Written by Reporters? Permanent link to this item in the archive.

I just listened to an hour of Morning Edition on WNYC, the NPR station in NY, and there was no mention of the scandal brewing with Karl Rove. They did mention the First Lady's trip to Africa, and the Senate decision to reinstate funding to the Corporation for Public Broadcasting, which was in jeopardy because of their supposed "liberal bias."  Permanent link to this item in the archive.

Cunning Realist: "In the unlikely event that Bush did not know until now that Rove was involved, isn't the fact that Rove did not admit to this before now --- despite the publicly-stated desire of his boss for the leaker to come forward --- itself gross insubordination worthy of immediate termination?" Permanent link to this item in the archive.
