Today’s Tidbits

Ask the Bloke a Question:

TODAY I’VE IMPLEMENTED a new feature where you can ask me a question - any question (so long as it’s not too personal :). If I don’t already know the answer I might know where to find it. Stuff like conflict resolution, advocacy, computers, RSS, security, internet, web programming, spiritual, politics, news, suggest a topic or discuss the weather. Kind of like a dear Bloke newsletter. Whatever, so go ahead and ask away because who knows what you may find. Check it out at the top menu or side bar.

Google’s Personalized Search (Beta)

GOOGLE LABS has a new personalized search tool. When I first search I generally don’t want to narrow the focus too much because I may miss something. But then again if I’m certain I know what I want, (and if it saves me wading through pages of results), then it would be worth it. But then again, Google is so doggoned intuitive that I rarely find what I want beyond the first page or two . But then again… oh what heck, just try it.

What a Tale they’ve Woven

THE AUSTRALIAN RECORDING INDUSTRY is no more honest than their American (RIAA) counterparts. Despite record sales the ARIA is taking on Kazaa and suing university students, and American record companies have sued nearly 2000 file-sharers in the past six months.
