So Jason Kottke is blogging full time, having quit his day job. His plan is to accept contributions, and not go for the “easy” money of ads. A laudable goal; I for one would like to work in my underwear and not have to answer to The Man at some point. But out of nowhere, Penny Arcade puts the whole thing into something approaching perspective. Unexpected, this is.
This time in, of all places, GQ. Fairly interesting, if only to find out Larry Page sat in his breakfast before going through the opening NASDAQ ceremony the day Google went public.
In years gone by, I used to get together with fellow TV flacks and watch the Oscars, jeering and cheering all the while. Cirrcumstance and geography don’t make that a possibility anymore, but the Intarweb (it’s not just for the buying and selling of wood!) will allow us to prognosticate before, during and after this year’s hoo-ha. Get commenting, people!
Flickr has a new logo, which looks like a amalgam of Google, AOL, Kodak and Apple, all mushed together in a big pile of ugly. I guess said companies poured some money into the site, which is an excellent resource for not only uploading photos but also searching through their innovative “tag” structure. But man…that logo ain’t pretty.
