Ross Mayfield / Ross Mayfield's Weblog:
There is no Web 3.0, part, uh, 2  —  John Markoff writes in the NY Times that Web 3.0 is coming.  Apparently he missed my post last week, for There is no Web 3.0.  The funny thing about my summation last year (Web 2.0 is Made of People!) is the web has always been that way — and always will.
Peter Rip / EarlyStageVC:
Web 2.0 + 1  —  I spent three days this past week at the Web 2.0 Conference in SF.  For the most part I felt like it was a waste of time (and $2500).  The time spent in the halls was great, seeing people I know and connecting with interesting people.  I didn't need the conference to figure out that Video is the new Black.
Discussion: flashpoint and Ramesh Jain's Blog
Greg Linden / Geeking with Greg:
AI and "Web 3.0"  —  When I was John Markoff's article, "Entrepreneurs See a Web Guided by Common Sense", on the front page of the NYT today, I did not know whether to feel excited or dismayed.  —  On the one hand, the distant goals of many working on information retrieval were nicely laid out in the article:

Drew / Dembot:
Zune  —  I just sent this letter to Microsoft.  It was a very difficult thing to do:  —  Sunday November 11, 2006  —  Hey Paul, we are going to back out of the Zune.net promo that is supposed to launch [deleted date].  —  I have been losing sleep over it and decided this is just not going to be right for Rocketboom.

Kyle Orland / Joystiq:
Wii console manual reveals its secrets  —  Since all four of us can't play Zelda at the same time, we passed the Wii-less hours by poring over the 69 page "systems and settings" manual that came with the Wii (not to be confused with the 105-page, trilingual "system setup" manual that's also included).

Garett Rogers / Googling Google:
Google Earth in 4D  —  Google skipped right past the third dimension and landed directly in the fourth (time) by offering historical maps on Google Earth.  Now you can travel back in time — for example, I am looking at the globe of 1790.  Don't expect detailed high resolution photography from days gone by …
Google Blogoscoped:
How to Increase the Gmail Font Size  —  I always found Gmail's font size for mails a bit too small for comfortable reading - and since I read a lot in Gmail, I wanted to optimize it.  While I can adjust the font size in Firefox using View -> Text size -> Increase, I don't like to change all web pages.
William Slawski / SEO by the SEA:
Looking for a Library on Google Local  —  Back in July, I wrote about a patent application from Google that may have described how Google attempts to find the web pages that should be shown with local search results, Authority Documents for Google's Local Search.
