Why Feedburner is trouble  —  When Feedburner first came online I warned that there was danger in giving so much power to one company.  They argued that they were just a little company, struggling to make a go of it, and no one should fear them.  Some of them even took the predictable political tactic …

Dear Facebook Friends, If you add this application to your account, you're no friend of mine  —  One of the worst things I believe to ever to happen to blogging, Pay-Per-Post, has created a beach-head application on Facebook.  My complaint with pay-per-post schemes (and not just the company of that name) …

School conducts anti-phishing research  —  EVANSVILLE, Ind. - The e-mail appeared to be a routine correspondence between two friends.  "Check this out!" it read, then listed a Web address.  —  But the note was fake, part of an online ruse called phishing that has become a scammer's favorite …
