*Polls: One of the most important questions of our time – Are beards metal? (I voted “not metal.” The results may shock the fuck out of you.)
*Feed readers: Two very good posts about the future of RSS feeders and idea recommendation. I obviously have a lot to say about these matters and not a lot of free time to say it. The interesting thing about my previous statements that I considered twitter a recommendation engine for ideas is that the people I follow don’t ever link to anything.
*The Future: You can’t throw a neon disc without hitting a blog talking about upcoming Tron-themed Daft Punk events. Or maybe that’s just among the blogs I read. Hmf.
*Green: Carrotmobbing is gimmicky. It’s also been one of my favorite ideas since I first saw it for the day job way back.
*Discovery: I used to cover a lot more Web 2.0 music discovery recommendation engine shit on this blog. Then I got bored with it. Still, Ghostly (for the iPhone) looks pretty cool. Well. It has a ghost. [notcot]
*Prose: Sexist, maybe. Boner Party, though? Yes.
*Editorial: Vanity Fair marks up Sarah Palin’s resignation speech. To be fair, if an editor went through a transcript of me talking for 20 minutes, it would be an enormous red knot.
*Apology: Late to so much. The dude won’t sleep.
