Tim O'Reilly / O'Reilly Radar:
Draft Blogger's Code of Conduct  —  When I wrote my Call for a Blogging Code of Conduct last week, I suggested some ideas of what such a code might contain, but didn't actually put forth a draft that people could subscribe to.  We're not quite there yet, but we have a plan.

Jeff Jarvis / BuzzMachine:
No twinkie badges here.  —  I was doing my best to ignore Tim O'Reilly's misguided effort to play hall monitor to the blogosphere, wishing it would just go away.  But unfortunately the New York Times did not ignore it.  How could it pass up a juicy opportunity to make us all look like the louts they all too often think we are?
Mike / CrunchNotes:
My Thoughts On O'Reilly's Code of Conduct  —  Tim O'Reilly has posted a draft code of conduct that bloggers would voluntarily accept and promote.  This all stems from the Kathy Sierra/Chris Locke issue from a couple of weeks ago.  The New York Times is all over this as well.
Discussion: Glass House and Newsome.Org
Tony / Deep Jive Interests:
Why Are We *Still* Confusing "Blogging Code of Conduct" With "Having a Comments Policy"?  —  I always get a chuckle out of reading things in newspapers that I read around the blogosphere days, if not weeks earlier.  Case in point: the Kathy Sierra hubaloo has finally got a bit of a footnote …
Robert Scoble / Scobleizer:
Code of conduct or not?  —  Tim O'Reilly just posted the draft of a Blogger's Code of Conduct that he's hoping we all adopt.  I instantly asked the mob hanging out on Twitter what they thought.  Brett Nordquist had this funny thought:  —  "Something tells me the sites with the 'Anything Goes' logo will be more interesting."
Andy Beal / Andy Beal's Marketing Pilgrim:
Why O'Reilly's Blogger's Code of Conduct Must Die  —  If you're a long time reader of Marketing Pilgrim, you'll know my unease with anyone trying to define blogging; who should and shouldn't blog; and, especially, talk of a "bloggers code of conduct."  So, you can imagine that my Monday morning …

Wifi-Enabled SanDisk Sansa Connect Features Yahoo! Music Unlimited, LAUNCHcast, Messenger, and Flickr  —  It's with great pride I announce the release of the SanDisk Sansa Connect, the new Wifi-enabled portable MP3 player set to free you from the USB cable chaining you to your PC …

Xbox 360 QWERTY thumb keyboard is official  —  The years old rumors of a QWERTY Xbox controller are true.  Microsoft is finally launching a QWERTY thumb keyboard for the Xbox 360, a welcome addition for those of us who don't want yet another keyboard sitting around in our living room.

Google China: We Thought We Were Slick  —  Google China today apologize for stealing rival Sohu's data for their Pinyin IME that was released a few days ago.  The suspicion started when Sohu's employees discovered that both of the input method editors share a similar thesaurus and have the same bugs.

Clive Thompson / Wired News:
You Grew Up Playing Shoot'em-Up Games.  Why Can't Your Kids?  —  I was playing a round of Gears of War, trying to redo a level on "insane" mode, and the walls were painted with guts.  I slaughtered my way to the boss, revved up my chainsaw, and sliced into his chest — releasing a fractal fountain of gore.
Discussion: Kotaku, GamePolitics.com and Slashdot
Nik / HavanaLion:
iPod tells soldier he was shot - the real story  —  I talked to Kevin Garrad this afternoon and here's the story firsthand:  —  The armor stopped the bullet.  —  The iPod was how Kevin Garrad found out he was shot.  This is the real story.  —  Kevin said he got into the fight …
Mike / Techdirt:
Why Google Isn't Stealing Newspaper Content  —  from the make-it-stop dept  —  This is just getting ridiculous.  Google may have signaled its willingness to pay up with its deal with AFP, and now it seems that newspaper publishers are interested in taking them up on the offer.
Kim Hart / Washington Post:
Wave of Widgets Spreads on the Web  —  Entrepreneurs Experiment With Ways to Profit From Web Site, Desktop Gizmos  —  The standard Internet advertisement is so familiar that most people tune it out: a billboard stripped across the top of a Web site, waiting for consumers to surf by and maybe click on it.
