Mike Sugarbaker: “It’s very simple: there are some friends you’d trust with your seat at Starbucks, but far fewer you’d trust with your car keys, and even fewer with, say, your sister in a tube top.”
Looks interesitng. Although, I have similary functionality right within this Blog by integrating the Google API with post meta data
From The Guardian: “The idea is that blogs can help a business present information and develop new ideas. They can bring out and spread the expertise within a company. ”

So cool! My wife [Catbird.org] has ported her blog over to B2. She’s such a hot geek :-)
OS-CMS is an informative portal that lists and briefly summarizes many of the Open Source CMS and Blog tools available. However, what makes this portal special is that they also provide demos of each.
Have WiFi, will travel … AT&T Wireless “… announces a pact with a Wi-Fi network provider to give its subscribers wireless access at more than 485 venues around the country.” (via CNET)
dive into mark: “Why canÂ’t I just click an Â“auto-contentÂ” button and have my software automatically generate a list of, say, a dozen interesting links and quotes culled from my aggregator subscriptions, Â“neighboringÂ” sites, sites discussing the hot topics of the day, and mainstream articles reporting on a small hard-coded list of additional topics?”

Jon Udell: “A picture can be worth a thousand words. But a URL can be worth half a dozen pictures.

Ok, everyone is linking to this site, but the flash series that explains Kubrik’s 2001 space odyssey is awesome!

I spent a few minutes today runing throught the product tour of Macromedia’s new light-wieght CMS application Contribute and I have to say that for $99 it seems to be very powerful… I need to test out a demo before I believe the hype, but it certainly has peeked my interest.
Moblogger: “This application runs as a background process that monitors a POP3 email account for new email, then downloads it, detaches any files such as pictures, sound or video, uses the Blogger API to post the text in the email to your blog and uses FTP to post the files to your server. Send the email from a phone and you immediately start “moblogging”. (via Ben)
