There’s no theme to this RexLink post other than all of this stuff was found on the internet:
- A personal appeal from Wikipedia author Ellen Feiss. | RexHammock.com – I'm sorry. I usually don’t RexLink my own stuff, but when I saw one of those Wikipedia ads, I had a flashback to 2002.
- Easy to understand cheatsheet of HTML tags | craigslist – In an easy to understand format, some basic tags that you can use whenever you need some bold face or italics or maybe some color type on a Craigslist or eBay post, or maybe in the comments box of a blog. Bookmark this page for future reference. [via: bookofjoe.com – http://re-x.me/xp ]
- Being bad to your customers is bad for business – Google algorithms giveth. Google algorithms taketh away.
- Google Commerce Search is One Year Old Today – The fact that most of you have never heard of Google Commerce may be the reason Google is buying Groupon.
- Pictory Blog – Key quote, on the blog’s anniversary post: “I stubbornly held on to this ad model: big, beautiful photo-based ads with the designer and photographer of the ad credited. I believed if I could pull that off, I could make a home for great advertising on the web.”
- Google Set to Launch E-Book Venture – WSJ.com – Bottomline: Google may have some advantages, but may also have some disadvantages. Thus, we have here, a typical business story.
- The permission gamble: can you send more email safely? – I've officially changed my definition of spam (after reading this). It's not "unsolicited" email. It's unwanted email. And, if there's not a one-click unsubscribe, I have a "report spam" button that I reply with.
- Serious Fun With Numbers (Janet Paskin/CJR) – You know how I sometimes write about how reporters have a lot of trouble with the whole math thing? So, you can probably deduce why I’m linking to this.
