Richard Siklos / New York Times:
Waiting for the Dough on the Web  —  NOW and then, an executive whose brain I'm siphoning will turn the tables and pose a question.  And lately, I've been getting a few versions of this: "You talk to a lot of the traditional media companies.  Who do you think has got this Internet thing figured out?"
Carlfish / The Fishbowl:
WE COME TO BURY WINFS...  The first thing to strike me about the blog post announcing the end of WinFS as a Vista feature is how totally un-blog-like it is.  —  Every comment (bar one) got the point.  WinFS is dead.  Its carcass is being split between SQL Server and ADO.NET …
Palfrey / John Palfrey:
"How to Make Money" BloggerCon session  —  We didn't start from scratch this morning in talking about how to make money session at BloggerCon IV, and I think the un-conference group made a lot of progress in exploring the topic.  (Dave had duct tape over his mouth.)

Egokast video belt buckle  —  Oh, decisions, decisions.  What belt shall I wear tonight to set off my new outfit?  Hmm, the traditional leather?  The one with the clamp fastener or the metal buckle?  I guess I'll just settle on the one with the 3" video display where I can insert an SD card …

Gizmodo, The Gadget Blog:
Egokast Video Belt Buckle  —  Bah.  Who needs a LED belt-buckle when you can go balls to the wall with a full color LCD belt buckle like this one from Egokast?  The idea behind this is pretty simple, it is a 3-inch screen mounted on a stainless steel case that can attach to any standard belt.
Robert Scoble / Scobleizer:
Production values debate breaks out during videologger session  —  I just listened to the video blogging session at BloggerCon.  —  In the discussion it was clear that there is a coming conflict between people who "do it for love" and those who are doing video to build an audience …

Digg users spurred to register and contribute  —  My story yesterday, "Digg's 8 million "social freeloaders", in which I discuss the Social Web's very low user contribution ratio, has spurred passive Digg readers to become active Digg contributors!  —  Registered, active Digg user "kazzyD" …

Michael Arrington / TechCrunch:
The Best Widget Ever - Gapingvoid  —  If you don't know Hugh Macleaod and his daily cartoons on Gapingvoid, you aren't in the cool crowd.  His art is clever, insightful and always timely.  It's often strange.  He also doesn't mind pissing people off every once in a while.
Trinity Rubicon:
The jig is up...  I'm going to be honest here: When I posted those Leopard screenshots on Blogger, I was never expecting quite the popularity it ended up acheiving.  For it to get on the front page of digg is one thing, but to have it get commented on 200 times is pretty surprising to me.
