  • Congratulations to digg, which has found yet another way to honk off its user base, this time with the introduction of threaded comments. User complaints have, of course, been dugg, completing today’s meta requirement. (CT)
  • Kevin Dugan is, of course, being completely serious with this list of ten reasons you should join a social network. (CT)
  • Google has been busy creating a whole series of new blogs. First there was their Public Policy blog and now come official journals for Google News and Google Finance. Both of the latter two have as their stated goal a more instant, direct communication of product happenings with users and readers, which of course is the whole blogging point, so good on them. (CT)
  • Todd Anderlik is great at finding fun videos and this one featuring a bunch of agency type folk lip syncing Harvey Danger’s “Flagpole Sitta” might be the best ever. For some reason watching this while I had Twitbin, Socialtext, WordPress, Google Reader and Trillian open at the same time made me think about how different my life is than how I thought it would be when I was six.
