Among the Open MediaratiGot an email just now telling me I'm on some "honorable mention" list, an addendum to the 100 people who made the "AO Technorati Open Media 100" list.
Here's the announcement. Scroll down to see the 50 Honorable Mentions. While I'm not a fan of these types of lists, I'm certainly honored that EVDB's mentioned among the folks in the honorable mention list.
EVDB is all about open media and open event sharing, and it's exciting to see that it's starting to get recognized.

The Enternet - all babble, all the timeI was doing a search at Technorati and came across a link that seemed promising. Clicked on the link, and thought, cool, a paragraph written about what I was looking for. But then I started reading the paragraph and realized I'd been had.
The word that stood out amidst all this randomness was enternet. So I did a search for "enternet" on Technorati. Hmm. Sure seem to be an awful lot of randomly-generated bot-blogs indexed at Technorati.
How many of the 10 million blogs are bogus, I wonder? 10,400+ postings indexed at Technorati contain "enternet". I suspect 99% are bot-generated random link farms. What other "enternet"-type giveaway words are there out there?

AllMusic to site visitors: go awayI rarely ever go to the allmusic.com site since they ruined it a while back, but I was curious about two bands I've never really listened to and wanted some background information. So I went, I surfed, I read one album review, I read another, and then after clicking through twelve pages over the course of ten minutes, saw a blank page with this stern message:
Just checked my browser history. Twelve pages. Ten minutes. THAT qualifies as "a rate and a speed inconsistent with the noncommercial and personal use permitted by our site's Terms of Service"? I should add that I'm using a static IP address, but one that's going through Time Warner RoadRunner. Did they just ban all RoadRunner users?

WipeoutI am pretty sure I saw this car fly by one day on the way home from work a few weeks ago. I was heading into La Jolla when a silver Porsche Carrera GT (amazing how low and wide these cars are) came up from behind on the 52 freeway and weaved through traffic and then flew by at at least 120 miles per hour, over the hill that is La Jolla Parkway and down the hill towards the intersections below. The car was going so fast I wondered how would the driver ever stop if he had to?
I wonder if this was the same car. News circulating that this car crashed doing over 100 mph at a Southern California racetrack -- driver and passenger both dead. Another story here. One of the victims was Internet marketing whiz Corey Rudl. Both lived in La Jolla. Discussion of the incident going on here.
Reminds me of the
I think this latest Porsche is the same $450,000.00 model that Dick Hardt of SXIP has. Be careful out there!
