Wired reports that the most read webloggers aren't necessarily the ones with the most original ideas.

There's a good reason for that. A link is a very powerful social gesture. If I link to 50 people, they are very likely to read me, and possibly even link back. So, I'll have 50 readers, while someone who only writes ideas, but doesn't link, will be struggling for readers.

This tendency is why I try to always credit where I found a post.

There are a ton of rumors and allegations flying around the blogosphere about SCO and trying to tie Microsoft in.

A Microsoft exec (Martin Taylor) emailed me last night on this issue.

He categorically told me "Microsoft has no direct or indirect financial relationship with BayStar" and "these allegations are not accurate" and "Microsoft has purchased a license to SCO’s intellectual property, to ensure interoperability and legal indemnification for our customers. The details of this agreement have been widely reported and this is the only financial relationship we have with SCO."

Anand says he isn't visiting Orkut much anymore. I've found the same thing to be true with me too. In fact, so far none of the social software have gotten me to stick around.

Astute chart, er decision tree, of when to blog and when to use other media to communicate online.

John Engler asks "I don't mean to be rude or too inciting here, and I welcome the introduction of Longhorn, but doesn't Mac OS X's Finder already have the equivalent of WinFS, or at least 'fast find'?" Um, no. Read my interview where I talk about search engine technology, including WinFS.
