Yahoo TV gets... um... 0.2-ified?Paul Kedrosky complains that Yahoo! TV has been Web 2.0-ified:
That's not what I see. What I see when I go to tv.yahoo.com is this:
I had to shrink the screen shot way way way down (and then show a magnified portion of it) as it is so long a page. I've tried reloading the page, even shift-reloading, but it just don't work. (This is with Safari on a Mac).

What I'm Listening ToLots of musical discoveries over the past month.
During a recent trip to the Bay Area, I had a few minutes to spare between meetings so I stopped by Streetlight Records (Amoeba was too far of a drive) in Campbell . . . three-quarters expecting that the store would have gone the way of Tower Records. I was surprised to see it was still there, right near the crazy Zorba the Greek restaurant on Bascom.
I love these kinds of stores because the employees go to great lengths to explain why some albums by bands I've never heard of are worth listening to. And usually, they're right. I wind up buying a bunch of such CDs particularly when I see not only did one employee post a long, painstakingly detailed review on a tiny piece of construction paper, but a whole bunch of other employees taped stickers with their names to the CD jewelcase, giving their thumbs up as well. How can I lose?
So, here are the discoveries, not just from the Streetlight experience, but from the Hype Machine and other MP3 blogs:
Is This Progress?I am seeing more and more sites with an array of bookmark-sharing icons that's beginning to resemble an array of United Nations flags:
[Idea: start a service that auto-submits to ALL of these services with one click. Note I said start a service. As opposed to business.]

San Diego Needs a Real NewspaperI wish San Diego had a real newspaper, with its own staff, who wrote their own stories, dug up real scandals, exposed corruption and crime, and dealt with local issues in a way that was a benefit to the citizens of the local community.
The San Diego Union-Tribune is not that newspaper.
Ever notice that most of this excuse for a paper is actually wire stories from other sources? Here's today's front page:
Only thing missing is a New York Times wire story. Have no fear, i'm sure there will be one tomorrow or the next day.
