: What the hell happened to Elizabeth Spiers blog? I go to capitalinflux.blogspot.com and I get some “rated r” thing. Blogspotitis?
Has she been kidnapped? Nick, Rick, somebody, rescue her!
: Now she’s back. It was a brief nightmare. I’m going to bed now. The world is safe again.
: If newbie blogger Steven Johnson can invent a Google game already, then so can I:
I am always impressed that Google can predict what I meant to say (as the old Mayor Daley’s press secretary used to say: “Quote what he meant to say, not what he said”).
So I wondered whether Google would recognize variations on my name and then ask: “Did you mean Jeff Jarvis?”
I’m up to a half-dozen variations so far.
Oh, those Scandinavians
: My favorite Scandy site, Buzz, is out of commission (as near as I can translate, its computer is sick) so we’ll have to make due with Aftenposten’s most-read news:
: Mother (human) breastfeeds babies (canine).
: Not to be outdone, here’s cruel news on human animal contact from the cruel state, New Jersey: Man tortures hamster.
: I’ve been gone from blogging for a few days and this is the quality of what I give you on my return? It has been a long few days.
: Maybe I’m just bitter. I’ve been gone a few days and nobody reported me kidnapped. Nobody. I’m so hurt.
Style over substance
: An amazing presentation of type with music. Forget what it says. It’s hypnotizing.
: Steven (Berlin) Johnson finally has a weblog. Nick Denton and I listed him among those who should have blogs but don’t. Now he does.
Next: Denton’s working on Hitchens.
And I say Shirky is long overdue (and, no, guest blogging does not count).
A billion served
: Drudgeburgers, that is.
And I thought JeffJarvis.com was cool
: From an ad on Bill Quick’s site, I see that I can buy myself an even better title: Lord Jarvis, Baron Jarvis, Viscount Jarvis, Count Jarvis. Even better than owning a .com. Much better than that stupid star registry sham thing. And not bad for a guy with hillbilly roots.
: Rick Bruner and company have started a good new weblog on media and marketing. With Romenesko, IWantMedia, Corante, AdAge, ContentBiz, and more (I’m too lazy to link), weblogs are turning into a valuable media resource.
