I try not to judge and let people bumble along with their own choices. However, I’m noticing an increase in the number of post sluts and am curious at the incentives behind this new form of self promotion. My entire Internet career has always been based on supporting people and their web projects. There is one area, however, that I can’t walk into with any sort of pride.

Links come and go, but a real good link is one that fits 304 criteria and gets the almighty nod of approval from Google. “Basically, Google realised that it had been naive in considering links to always be citations.

While the Senate has yet to play their hand in this game, the feeling appears to be that Internet freedom as we knew it in the USA is now over. Story: House rejects Net neutrality rules. Already much has changed with the Internet. It’s different than it was in the 1990′s, when it was insanely carefree and everybody was havingRead more…

One of the nagging thoughts that’s been on my mind, especially as a result of beginning to perform blog usability reviews and comments on Blog Usability Interview with Kim Krause Berg is that I wonder how many bloggers even WANT their blogs to be usable?
