Jeremy Wright's Blog Marketing Book (chap 1) Online

Story Text:

Jeremy Wright, all round blogging type geezer, has released the first chapter of his blog marketing book online. You do have to skim over the "what are blogs" stuff, this isn't aimed at YOU particularly, but it does get good, and does leave me thinking it could well be worth a read...

SynchroEdit - I was thinking about this just this morning...

Story Text:

This is odd, but very cool. I was thinking this morning about a conf call im on today and wondering if there was an app out there, like TaDaList but that would let several users edit it at the same time. You know, like in real time? Then, just a couple of hours later i read about SynchroEdit that will apparently do exactly that!

Affilipedia, and other Heinous Crimes

Story Text:

A new wiki for the affiliate industry has been launched. It's called Affilipedia, and to me, sounds rather like some dreadful illness or worse, some heinous crime - im not sure why Wikipedia can get away with it and this can't, but that's what the name says to me....

Yahoo! Rolls Blogs into News Search

Story Text:

As expected, Yahoo! have made their blogs move this week, just not in the way we'd imagined. No, no dedicated blog search, not yet at least. What they've done, is rolled blog results into Yahoo! News. They appear as a sidebar to the right, which rather unfortunately makes them look like Search ads. See the results for a Y!News search for WordPress. At the time of writing, you can see Threadwatch as the top result.

This is a very interesting way to use Google Maps with Flash to provides for vector drawing.

VGMap is a new library created by Eyebeam R&D that allows designers, developers, and mapping geeks to overlay data on top of Google Maps in a richer way than is possible using their standard system. It is called VGMap because it adds vector-drawing capability to the already-awesome GMap API.

When a Launch Goes Badly....

Story Text:

I was talking to Duncan Riley earlier this morning, we talked a bit about B5Media, his co-owned blog network that launched the other week and gave us all a lot of enjoyment ripping apart the business model. Apparently they've been inundated with applications from folks wanting to blog with them. The phrase "everyone and his dog has a blognetwork" came up more than once.

Seth's Squidoo - Is it About.com, Wikipedia, or Geocities?

Story Text:

The title is a little harsh, but justified i think. Seth just released his new eBook, "everyone is an expert" [pdf]. Its an ad, a damn good one, stacked with value, and i'd highly recommend it, but an ad nonetheless, for his new project Squidoo.

Master Blog Spam Blacklist Taken Down

Source Title: Master Blacklist is no more Source Url: http://www.jayallen.org/comment_spam/ Story Text:

Jay Allen has taken down his master blacklist. This list was a who's who of blog spammers. Due to its large popularity it became a large burden on the server, averaging over 600,000 requests/day. The newer blogs have better spam protection built in reducing the need for such a list. I tip my hat to Jay Allen for providing this free service for as long as he did in order to help people have a better experience on the Internet.
