LOTD: 12/25/07

  • Anyone else giving the new beta of Firefox a whirl? I’d heard of it from a Twitter pal, an have got to say it’s super light and is cruising along for me. (TB)
  • Lifehacker’s got the goods on setting up the new computer your kids got you for Christmas. (TB)
  • An interesting (though scary?) look at how many more people in our society are viewing the value of intellectual property. (TB)
  • Over at John Arnold’s blog, an interesting question about whether or not Facebook is “killing blogs.” I’d say no, but interesting nonetheless. (TB)
  • Marshall Kirkpatrick writes up 2007 as “The Year in RSS,” and I can’t say I disagree. While “the masses” may have RSS powering a lot of their efforts online, most people have no idea how to use it, and until people start using IE7 (especially at work) and Firefox, they’re clicking on icons and then sending notes to Webmasters saying “this link is broken.” Howabout maybe we make something (a link) work like ALL the other links on the entire Internet, and have it do what it’s supposed to first, then we’ll have a REAL year OF RSS. (TB)
  • Valleywag points to the “updating” of the NORAD Santa Tracking that has been floating around for awhile. (TB)
