  • 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

Why reining in Google is good for us

From CNN: Why reining in Google is good for us

From the opinion piece: “I don’t like feeling stuck in a particular operating system, social network or piece of software. It’s not that I won’t commit to a product or company — it’s that I don’t trust any of them enough to get married to one of them. Once they own me, they’ll start either selling my data to other companies, limiting my Web experiences to the ones that help sell their clients’ products or otherwise screwing with me as a consumer and person.”

This is what I have been saying for quite a while now; surrendering our privacy to any company, be it Google, Apple, Microsoft, or any other, is a really bad idea. Really bad.
