Yahoo! MyBlogLog Gets Updated

Yahoo! MyBlogLog has included a couple of updates since the last time I took a close look at the service.

For one, sorting through “followers” and considering reciprocal “friend adding” is easier because you can filter through the list of friends in a pretty speedy fashion (especially if you have a hundred or more pending followers).

CNN Brings Twitter Mainstream

You might say we’ve developed a bit of a fascination with Twitter, what with all the coverage and launching our own Twitter people directory, Twellow. Now that even CNN’s talking about Twitter, we’re reminded we were once fascinated by another upstart before it went mainstream: Google.

A Russian blogger who referred to local police as "scum" in a post received a suspended jail sentence on Monday for extremism, leading other bloggers to express concern over online free speech.

Traditional Media vs. Bloggers

OK, so the headline is admittedly a bit sensational, but it got you reading, didn’t it? I’ve been meaning to share some observations and thoughts on the changing media landscape for a while, but just haven’t gotten around to it. Until now.

China, Google Share Top 10 Most Infected List
· 1

If you go down StopBadware.org’s top ten most malware infected network list, you’ll notice a pattern: the first four are Chinese. While the critic may find that unsurprising, number five on the list, Google, Inc., is worth a double take.

Google isn’t just one of the founders of StopBadware.org, it’s also a member. The company, in a weird twist, is also its own target. Google has its free blogging service Blogger to thank for all that junk gumming up its own network. Out of over 200,000 websites discovered to be infected, Blogger returned 4,261 infections.

WARNING: This is the Internet, not TV, where seven words people aren’t allowed to say on TV are permitted. In honor of that, and of recently, well, dead1 "counter-culture" comedian George Carlin, the seven words you can’t say on TV will be said because mincing words would be anathema to Carlin’s life. Plus it gives us an excuse. If dirty words in general offend you, better click out now, because these seven are top shelf, man.

Billionaire investor Carl Icahn is launching his much-anticipated blog today, called the Icahn Report.

Icahn first announced that he would launch a blog in February focused on the desultory state of corporate governance in America.

Since the announcement, the blog, icahnreport.com, has remained vacant of content, leading the New York Post Web site to launch a daily "Carl I Can’t Blog Counter," tracking how many days, hours, minutes and seconds the blog has been idle.

Who Owns Blog Comments?
· 45

Here’s a head-scratcher with a deceptively obvious answer: When a person comments on a blog or website, who owns, or owns the rights to, that comment? Is it the commenter or the blog/website publisher? It’s a trickier question than you might think.

Metallica Now Master of Puppet Bloggers

This may or not be taught in PR 101, perhaps because the general tenet is obvious: Don’t screw up good PR with bad PR. We’ll chalk this one up to Metallica’s management and not to the band itself, just to be fair.

Be Careful While Blogging In Other Countries

I’m all for freedom of speech, but does it seem to you that us "bloggers" are getting just a little too big for our boots?
