Google Blog Search

OK, OK I'm a Google fanboi. But this blog search looks pretty nice indeed - certainly feels better than Technorati ever has:

And an ego search reports a link to this blog - and damn fast too! Kudos Google.

Doppler and NPR feeds

I use Doppler to manage my podcasts. Recently I added a bunch of NPR feeds to Doppler (highly recommended BTW!) but found that they wouldn't download. Turned out that Doppler has an issue with the URL that NPR supply, the solution was found in the Doppler Forums.

Hopefully this'll help someone else!

eBay Buys Skype for $4.1 Billion - Web News News - Designtechnica

eBay buys Skype - works for me, I like both services! If eBay do pay close to four billion then I suspect they've paid a few billion too much...

But it's still big news. :)

Seeing what Katrina has wrought

Hurricane Katrina has caused so much damage. Frightening. My thoughts go out to the people affected by the disaster.

If you can please donate to the relevant relief funds (and check whether your company can help out - ours matches employee donations).

The Google Earth community has extended Google Earth so that you can visualize what's going on - it helps put things in perspective. Seeing what Katrina has wrought.

Dave Winer is, as always, covering the issue well and posting useful links as is Scoble.

All the best to those folk living in Katrina's wake.
