Top Tech Bloggers: #34 + #38 = #8 (Bitchmeme Watch)  —  TechCrunch has taken the Techmeme Leaderboard and extracted the top authors since the beginning of this year.  Not surprisingly, Mike Arrington of TechCrunch is #1 with Erick and Duncan of TechCrunch coming in at #2 and #4 respectively.

Trolling for links: The top tech bloggers  —  As we all know, the number one rule of the blogosphere is that you must write about the blogosphere (it's like the opposite of the Fight Club), and in the absence of a “bitchmeme” for this weekend — although Twitter's intermittent issues come close …
Michael Arrington / TechCrunch:
Sources: Microsoft Signs Letter Of Intent To Acquire Xobni  —  Two independent sources tell us that the Microsoft/Xobni deal is moving along and that Microsoft signed an acquisition LOI in the last week.  I have not yet been able to track down the price, but a previous offer of sub-$20 million was supposedly rejected by Xobni.

Social Networking Advertising - It Will Be Even Harder than we Think  —  I've had a few experiences in the past few weeks that continue to bolster my belief that monetizing social networks and communities will continue to be a lot harder than people think.  —  1. I posted a question on Twitter …

Allen Stern / CenterNetworks:
My Life on Facebook as a Woman and Why Social Network Advertising Doesn't Work  —  Last weekend I joked around on Twitter regarding the ads I see on Facebook on the left menu.  As a single man in my 30s, the ads are always sexual in nature — some examples: “Hot Singles Waiting For You” and “30s Singles Looking for Love”, etc.

Scott Karp / Publishing 2.0:
Join The Web Content Conservation Movement  —  The other day Erick Schonfeld wrote a post about how he's feeling even more overwhelmed by new web content steams like Twitter and FriendFeed, and how he's desperately in need of a better filter.  I certainly agree with Erick's clarion call …

MG Siegler / ParisLemon:
If Twitter Breaks in the Woods and No One Can Tweet About It, Is It Really Broken?  —  I noticed a few people thinking the same thing as me today: is everyone taking a break from Twitter?  People do get burnt out from the web after all and it was a pretty nice weekend day in a lot of cities.

Inside the Eee PC 900  —  I know, we've probably been all Eee'd out for a few months; well, at least until Atom gets here.  But there was this niggling itch to break stuff, and it was sitting there, and this is bit-tech after all...  Where can we find that extra 16GB of SSD storage?
Ionut Alex Chitu / Google Operating System:
Recent Searches To Influence Google's Results  —  Danny Sullivan reported earlier this month that Google will start to personalize search results based on the previous query.  “For example, if someone were to search for [spain] and then [travel] after that, BOTH the ads and the organic results …
Robin Harris / Storage Bits:
Holographic storage ships next month!  —  Even since astronaut Frank Bowman disconnected the HAL 9000's holographic memory in 2001: A Space Odyssey techies have been wondering when we could buy real holographic storage.  Now we know: May, 2008.  —  Promising super-high density …

The Social Map Is All About Me  —  Written by Mark Sigal, a digital media and Internet platform entrepreneur who has done eight startups, four of them as a co-founder.  —  Call me a cynic, but there has to be more to the Web 2.0 story than accessorizing my Facebook page with one-dimensional pseudo applications.
Ryan / Carsonified:
The problem with Web Mission  —  I've noticed that TechCrunch is fully supporting Web Mission '08 and I just can't hold my tongue any longer.  —  Web Mission exemplifies everything that's wrong with the UK and European web start-up scene.  —  The description from their site says:
