Ok, Wired, Let's Do This.  —  A week ago Wired Magazine voiced its displeasure over our syndication partnership with the Washington Post. … When I read this I thought “WTF?” (with an emphasis on the “F").  Wired is a competitor to TechCrunch, but we've been on friendly terms with them for years now.

Post, TechCrunch Mum on Syndication Deal  —  Last week we ran a short news item about a syndication deal for a little blog called TechCrunch.  —  We pointed out how odd it seemed that the Washington Post, one of the nation's most trusted and revered newspapers, would run stories written …

Friend Connect, Open Social, Ning, and the web  —  First, I'm very happy to say that Ning will be rolling out our formal production support for Open Social in June.  —  In case you missed the news at the time, Open Social is a standard way, sponsored by Google, to build new features ("gadgets" …

Danny Sullivan / Search Engine Land:
Summize Gains “Local” Twitter Search Option  —  Summize has already turned into my preferred tool to search for what people are saying on Twitter.  Now it's gained a way to see what people are twittering about near a local area.  —  Say I want to see what's been happening in Newport Beach, California, in terms of Twitter activity.

Using real-time news tools  —  So rumour has it that Twitter ‘beat’ even the US Geological Survey in reporting the earthquakes in China.  —  This was flagged up by tweet-a-second obsessive Robert Scoble, who said he saw a tweet from Twitter's dtan in Beijing before news outlets had picked up on the story …
Fred / A VC:
Disqus and Seesmic Pair Up For Video Comments  —  First, let me say that I am not sure about the utility of video comments.  I've seen them and even viewed them on Techcrunch and I think they slow down and break up the conversation more than they contribute to it.
Jeremy Toeman / Jeremy Toeman's LIVEdigitally:
MacBooks will take 50% of notebook market share within a year  —  I saw an interesting blog post this week regarding how Apple is immune to the innovator's dilemma (for those unfamiliar with the term).  First, I don't think the company is immune at all, I think that OS X and MacBooks …

Semantic Travel Search Engine UpTake Launches  —  According to a comScore study done last year, booking travel over the Internet has become something of a nightmare for people.  It's not that using any of the booking engines is difficult, it's just that there is so much information out there that planning a vacation is overwhelming.
