Copy(cue)cats: Remember when I said one of the dumbest ideas I’ve seen lately was a product called PaperClick, a Rube Goldbergish knock-off of the embarassingly stupid CueCat. Well, such a bad idea was certain to generate imitators in the cell-phone camera bar-code photography category. I will note, however, that not everyone seems to agree that my rejection of this concept is valid as the penny stock of the company behind PaperClick has increased by nearly 50% (from 13.5¢ to 19.9¢) since I scoffed at it.

ROI: Certain subscribers to the Journal of the American Medical Association are certainly getting their money’s worth from their subscription.
Still traveling: (I can’t decide if I prefer the one- or two-“L” spelling (speling) of the word travelling/traveling, but in order to save users download time, I’ve decided to opt for the shorter one.) I’m web-free for the rest of the day (unless I stumble into some wi-fi) so you’ll have to find updates on the Rosie trial somewhere else. Enjoy.
“Traditional media” discovers blogging: For the past two years, I’ve tried my best to not comment on the topic of “blogging” as I would rather blog on something I find interesting. However, I’ll link to this Larry Dobrow piece as it does come close to being on-topic of what I do blog about. You can find my “take” on this topic here.
