    Try your OGQ search on — Our results go back a year, search 50,000 sources (including lots of blogs and losts of news), are available via RSS and (if you’re on the website) a clickable histogram of the past year’s results.

    No, it doesn’t look for freshly updated web pages for new mentions of the term, so it’s not precisely what you’re referring to here, but it exists today and works now….

    Looks like they fixed the MacBook shutdown problem.


  3. I’m not grokking the post about Podshow. Is that in reference to the Odeo announcement, or something else that I might have missed?

    I know you have written about “who owns your data” a number of times before, so I thought you might find this post interesting about Basecamp:

  7. On that Democratic spam yesterday… I’m also getting this. In my case, I’m pretty sure I must have gotten signed up for this list by or through MoveOn, since that’s the only politically related email list I’m on. If so, they should have asked first. I don’t mind a few appeals for money, but several every day is getting excessive….

    Some nits about the calendar on the right side.

    When I went to today, 10/27/2006, 10/24 is not selectable on the calendar.

    If I select 10/23, I can’t select any date after 10/23.

    If I select Sep, I can no longer select Oct.

    OK, one last nit.

    I posted my previous comment at 4:28 pm CDT.

    It posted with a time of 1:28 pm PST?
