Steve Ballmer: “I’ve got my kids brainwashed: You don’t use Google, and you don’t use an iPod.” 

Lifehacker: “FeedBlendr is a web based RSS feed aggregator that pulls all of your favorite RSS feeds into one aggregate feed.” 

Podfeed does something similar, for podcasts. 

HotelChatter: Worst Wifi Hotels for 2006

There was lots of pickup on the idea of an unconference on unconferences.  

I was surprised to find that the podcasting page on Wikipedia now more or less tells an accurate story of the development of the technology. What they mostly omit, however, is the development of the art, and the key roles of Steve Gillmor’s, Doug Kaye’s and my own early podcasts. But I’m glad to see Chris Lydon get the credt he deserves. He really was the first one to do a series of podcasts, with his 2003 blogger interviews.

    Alertbear ( does the river of news style on your desktop. Not really for those with 500 feeds, but if you’re new to RSS, or really don’t care if you miss some stories, you might find it a great alternative to dealing with email-style readers.
