Scobleizer / Microsoft Geek Blogger:
The irritant of the non-credible journalists  —  Last week they went after Microsoft.  —  This week they are going after Apple.  —  You know, I'm seeing a trend here.  Some bloggers don't know who is a credible journalist and who isn't.  Hint: anything the Register writes is NOT credible.

Searching for Dummies  —  Plainsboro, N.J.  —  TALK of decline was old news in academia even in 1898, when traditionalists blasted Harvard for ending its Greek entrance requirement.  But today there's a new twist in the story: Are search engines making today's students dumber?
William C. Taylor / New York Times:
Here's an Idea: Let Everyone Have Ideas  —  LIKE many top executives, James R. Lavoie and Joseph M.

Dave Winer / Scripting News:
You can view the 60-percent-Vista-rewrite story as something of a software development IQ test.  Anyone who believes that it's conceivable is someone who hasn't got the most basic clue about how software development works.  It's akin to believing that all the US troops in Iraq could come home …

James McGovern / Enterprise Architecture:
Ruby and the Struggle of the Perspectives...  Lot of folks have chimed in on a previous posting on Ruby and responded with passion and supplied their own perspectives but zero facts.  One of the reasons I blog is that in my travels, I tend to talk to lots of folks and hear interesting perspectives in which I share here.
Computer Guru / Ramblings of a Computer Guru:
Vista Build 5342 Today!  —  As lame as this may sound, we knew about it first.  To days ago to be exact.. But our host had given us the boot, and we couldn't tell you that we would be getting a midnight build come Friday.... But that is OK, because NeoSmart Technologies has more than a mere build number and date.
Barbara Jepson / New York Times:
