BusinessWeek‘s Matt Vella gives the Nike+iPod five stars as a product, and says it “could be as vital to a runner as a pair of sneakers.” That’s pretty hefty talk for a product. And as accessories go for iPods and such, maybe they’re not a dime a dozen after all?

Robert Scoble lists the 40 things he links to the most as sources. Chris and I stare, blankly, with no surprise. Interesting meme to start, though. (No offense, Robert – I think it’s just that by reading you regularly, it’s not as surprising)
It’s all been about predictions for the new year, blah blah blah, the last week or so. Steve Rubel is calling for a moratorium on cattiness in the blogosphere. Want my prediction? Not gonna happen.

(disclosure: I’m involved as a Navigator for the Netscape property)
