Quick Takes: 8/24/05

  • It’s vitally important that everyone realize that, no matter what Microsoft or Google might want to call it, that influencers use RSS. That’s why it’s so frustrating whenever I come across a website that doesn’t offer it – it’s like they’re willfully ignoring an important segment, which is not a great way to do business.
  • Blogger block” has probably affected us all from time to time (unless you’re Steve Rubel).
  • Jeff Jarvis really lets us know what he thinks of the arguement that power lies in content ownership. I tend to agree with him that it’s the creation of that content that’s the important part. That’s especially true since Mark Cuban decided to pull away the curtain and give us the unedited text of a recent interview.
  • I’ll definitely downloading Google Talk tonight.
  • MediaPost is podcasting. See my points below about the L.A. Times podcast and insert “MediaPost” where I write “L.A. Times”. Oh, and I poked around on the MediaPost site and couldn’t find the link so without Steve Rubel’s announcement I wouldn’t have known about this. Good job, guys.
