Send an internal bill with the sticky! It certainly wakes up some managers ...
They completly loose for having some ugly floating 'join now' on their home page. I'm looking at their page for data and might well join if I could see the page! Amateurs. It requires a windows (only) download. There's three strikes right there. It looks like a 6-degrees chat with blogs outsourced. It also looks like they just created one for each user, stuffed them into google and then tried to make it buzzy.
Their out of here!
Searching around Blogchalking turned up the odd SocialGrid dating service which generates an extremely ugly barcode that one can google. Odd that no one made a good run with the idea. We certainly saw plenty of Geek Code and there has been Blogger Code floating around recently.
They point to RSScache (feed caching proxy) and KnowNow
(even-driven syndication) as solutions when just getting off of the desktop and onto a nice server-side application like bloglines works great. Heck, they'll even store and forward for you!
Bloglines | News: "We also announced that several leading
desktop aggregators,including FeedDemon, NetNewsWire and
BlogBot, will be supporting
the new functions, which will allow their users to synchronize their
desktop accounts with Bloglines."
The rejection blog as an rss feed.
You can create a Blogdigger Group using any blogs that have RSS feeds. Once you specify the feeds that comprise your Blogdigger Group you will be able to view the posts from those feeds, sorted by date, and even export your group in OPML or OCS, or subscribe to your Blogdigger Group as an RSS feed."

Information Overload, RSS & Feed Envy: "Over cocktails last night with Jenny and Steve and lots of other bloggers, it became apparent that the new challenge is how many feeds you can subscribe to in order to keep up with the changing material on the Web"
I've been on a tear seeking good data sources and am peaking at 444 feeds. And still, there is envy, I might miss something!

Yet Another News Agitator, not unlike Blogging as breathing or how to find time for blogging?: "Asking me how much time I spend blogging, is treating blogging as an additional activity in my life (which it was at first), and feels to me like asking how much of my time I spend breathing.
My answers to this question are pretty similar: I can afford spending quite a lot of time blogging only because it's so integrated with my regular activities that it's not an add-on anymore."
searching revealed too much ...
I have no idea what this is.
They tell me I should put this in my blog:
Blogchalking has been superseded by other, more effective markup techniques. Thus, I am officially abandoning what I had de facto abandoned quite some time ago.

in the blogsnow index. below every topic you will find a link called 'track this ...'. On those pages you will find weblogs that discuss the topic in question."
If you already use a different site just add blogsnow for a few days. You will be surprised how many of those 'emerging topics' on other sites will be visited links for you.
Attention.XML is an open standard, built on open source that helps you keep track of what you've read, what you're spending time on, and what you should be paying attention to.
Attention.XML is an XML file that contains an outline of feeds/blogs, where each feed itself is an outline, and each post is also an outline under the feed. This hierarchical outline structure is then annotated with per-feed and per-post information which captures such information as, the last time the feed/post was accessed, the duration of time spent on the feed/post, recent times of feed/post access, user set (dis)approval of posts, etc.
