Cult of Mac joins BackBeat Media

Thursday, November 13th, 2008

I’m very happy to let you all know that Leander Kahney’s Cult Of Mac blog has joined our Mac network here at BackBeat Media. They’ve actually been on board for a couple of weeks, and we’ve already placed early-bird advertisers like Crucial, Bare Bones and Microsoft there. Of course, we’re actively working with other potential […]

Mobile blogging

Tuesday, July 22nd, 2008

For years I’ve complained that the only time I think to blog something is when I’m away from my computer and, hence, nothing gets blogged. My blog frequency certainly supports that. Now that WordPress for the iPhone is out, perhaps that will change and you’ll hear more from me here, as well. Time will tell.

FEC Won’t Regulate Political Blogging

Wednesday, September 5th, 2007

The fact that this is a *headline* today is news in and of itself.I can’t believe this even needed to be considered. Of *course* privately-run blogs unfunded by candidates are exempt from FEC regulations!

Man… time really flies

After all, it was 15 years ago yesterday that Tim Berners-Lee posted this to usenet:The WWW project merges the techniques of information retrieval and hypertext to make an easy but powerful global information system…. It aims to allow information sharing within internationally dispersed teams, and the dissemination of information by support groups.

So how SHOULD we deal with RSS?

Monday, January 2nd, 2006

I was reading Dave Slusher’s site this afternoon, and as one of his new year’s “resolutions”, he said that he would be removing sites from his RSS aggregator that didn’t offer the full text of articles in their RSS feed…. This way people get to peruse the site in their aggregator and, if they find something interesting, come to the site to participate more and, “pay” for the content they’re reading (by “pay” I mean “allow us to show them advertisements of our choice”).

Another joins the fray…

That’s a very dispassionate way of saying that he and I started that business together nearly 6 years ago and Greg has been pouring his blood and sweat into it ever since. Now you, lucky blog-reader, have the opportunity to see first-hand what I’ve been seeing for years: Greg’s got some great ideas, expresses himself in an amazingly focused yet thoughtful way, and is well worth your time to read (heck, I’d read his blog over mine!).

In the flesh…

Well, if you’re a PR person, or simply someone walking around New York on Friday with an extra $600 or $700 and want to pop in, I’ll be speaking on a few Podcasting-related panels at the Bulldog Reporter PR Technology Conference. Feel free to say hi. I’m not a PR guy, but I still don’t […]

The Internet Survives

Saturday, September 3rd, 2005

You’ve all heard about Hurricane Katrina, and if you haven’t done something to help yet, you can easily donate some money to relief efforts. That said, it is interesting to see The Interdictor, a blog from a few guys who run a data center in the French Quarter. They have chosen to stick around (they […]

Catching up from the Mac world

Tuesday, July 19th, 2005

Well, life’s been interesting lately. The podcast has been going amazingly well, to the point where it’s now something I feel like I *should* be doing to service the listeners. Thankfully, John and I are still enjoying the heck out of it, so we have no plans of stopping anytime soon! There was a Marketwatch […]

What is a blog?

Thursday, June 2nd, 2005

This is getting to be an important question and one, it seems, that I might even have some experience from which to concoct an answer. As is public knowledge, one of the companies I co-founded, BackBeat Media, represents Think Secret‘s advertising. As such, we’re very much aware of all the news coverage surrounding Think Secret, […]
