  • RSS 2.0

    The main feed; in a news aggrigator, it's the news items, in a podcast client, it's the media files.

  • iTunes RSS 2.0

    This is the feed for iTunes to load the podcast. Why so difficult and non-standard? Beats me...it's why I use Juice and not iTunes.

  • Comments RSS 2.0

    This is the feed for global comments (any comment made to the board); each entry has a seperate comments feed, too

Web Upgrade HTML 5 May Weaken Privacy

From The New York Times: Web Upgrade HTML 5 May Weaken Privacy

The article suggests that using HTML5, “advertisers and others could, experts say, see weeks or even months of personal data. That could include a user’s location, time zone, photographs, text from blogs, shopping cart contents, e-mails and a history of the Web pages visited.”

And you wonder why I have grown to hate advertisers? The days of my late good friend Carl Weber, someone who would never have dreamed of forcing his work onto anyone, are long gone. Now we have advertising marketers who are so intrusive they border on breaking-and-entering.

Twitter, After Number of Users Surges, Turns to Ads

Filed under: News — Charlie Summers @ 10:16 am

From The New York Times: Twitter, After Number of Users Surges, Turns to Ads

I will never knowingly forward, retweet, or otherwise bring attention to a paid ad on Twitter. Nor will I click on any, nor purchase from anything promoted on Twitter. For a while, it was the only ad-free place on the Net, and I enjoyed the idea. Now it’s just another crass, crude area designed for marketers to pick your pocket.
