Some Sunday morning reading to share.
Twitter is going to do ads, and in some cases already is. Folks are making money from this. I’ll put up another post about my thoughts on this, but the sum is, end of an era. Robert Scoble chimes in here with a good post on the subject.
The Senate passes a procedural vote to allow debate on health care reform. All this means is that we’ll be subjected to more of the same nonsense as they do everything but debate, until other votes are taken. The circus continues. I love this headline: Bruising Debate Awaits Health Bill in the Senate. We won’t hear much new. There won’t be anything resembling debate, (more like infomercials full of bunk from both sides) and the only bruises will be the ones on our foreheads from slapping ourselves for voting for these idiots on all sides.
So, Sarah Palin’s book is out. The tour is on. Frank Rich has a good piece on the hullabaloo. Now, it appears that phenomenon has created another small controversy. The AP, you know the folks who don’t believe in Fair Use, got hold of her book, ripped it from its spine and scanned it so it could be searchable for its reporters. Hey, it’s fair use for us. Not for you.
Hands on winner for dumbest Apple Tablet rumor post of the year goes to PCWorld for this.
Speaking of Fair Use hypocrisy. Rupert Murdoch doesn’t believe in it either, especially when it comes to Google and the internet. That doesn’t stop his papers from ripping of entire blog posts and publishing them. Ask Edgar Wright. Hey, it’s fair use for us. Not for you.
Roger Ebert on how he gave Oprah her start.
So, a cop tases a 10 year-old girl who is throwing a tantrum at home. Sounds bad right? Well, the idiot mother asked them to do it. Yowsa.
