Doc Searls suggests that Google do something with Blogger. “Have a real market relationship with its most serious bloggers — and not just with advertisers,” says the Doc.
I gotta hand it to Evan Williams. He gets a hand job from the NY Times when he starts an ill-conceived podcasting company with millions of VC dollars (“We’re going to let people do what they do and we’ll see what they do and hope they do it a lot.”), and after the company fails, another hand job from the Times.

Joel Spolsky: “In the early nineties Microsoft looked at IBM, especially the bloated OS/2 team, as a case study of what not to do; somehow in the fifteen year period from 1991 – 2006 they became the bloated monster that takes five years to ship an incoherent upgrade to their flagship product.”
The secret to a juicy turkey: Cook it upside down. The breasts are the part you have to keep moist, and if you cook the turkey with the breasts up, they get the most heat, and cook faster than the legs (which have to get hotter to get fully cooked) and gravity works against you (the juices go down, on to the back, which doesn’t have much meat). But putting the breasts down, they cook more slowly and the juices sink down into the breasts, keeping them moist. Works every time, producing a deliciously juicy turkey.
