Wireless switches rely on finger power. Light switches that need no power supply or wiring are unveiled by a German company [New Scientist]

Piezioelectric crystals are a very cool technology. Using them to power items that would normally have to be hard wired is a brilliant sollution.

IBM hints at taking Wi-Fi access national. Big Blue, others eye creation of a single, virtual WLAN with seamless coverage [InfoWorld: Top News]

Will it be 802.11a? Nope, they are calling for it to be 802.11x, which means that they will eventually flip over to a. Interesting that they are eyeing this as a VoIP issue as well, almost as a challenge to cellular carriers. Interesting.

Dave makes an excellent point on the nature of weblogs. (BTW- I love the ctrl-k, ctrl-v, Enter keyboard combo for doing hyperlinks. so darned fast, there is no excuse for not linking.) New bloggers do not effect the signal to noise ratio, as the older hands can literally ignore them, and their feeds, if they so choose. It's the old, "Don't like our show? Then change the channel" argument, only this time, the channel in question isn't even on set in the first place.

So how do people find out about hot new blogs? You can check out the RCS homepage for one.  See who is posting right now, and check out what they have to say. Check and see what the people you like are reading as well. I have learned more since I started this page in February than I have in the past two years, simply because I'm getting information that experts are posting about delivered to me every hour, on the hour. Business, science, technology, politics, engineering, internet tools, the information is all out there, and quite easily harvested and served to you. Again, no secrets.

I haven't answered the question of how one gets people to notice your blog. I don't have the answer to that, if I did, I'd have more readers :) Seriously though, write well, update consistently, and link like mad. If another blogger has a comments section, use it when you have something to say that relates.

Bowie "Gets It".

David Bowie, 21st-Century Entrepreneur

"His deal with Sony is a short-term one while he gets his label started and watches the Internet's effect on careers. 'I don't even know why I would want to be on a label in a few years, because I don't think it's going to work by labels and by distribution systems in the same way,' he said. 'The absolute transformation of everything that we ever thought about music will take place within 10 years, and nothing is going to be able to stop it. I see absolutely no point in pretending that it's not going to happen. I'm fully confident that copyright, for instance, will no longer exist in 10 years, and authorship and intellectual property is in for such a bashing.'

'Music itself is going to become like running water or electricity,' he added. 'So it's like, just take advantage of these last few years because none of this is ever going to happen again. You'd better be prepared for doing a lot of touring because that's really the only unique situation that's going to be left. It's terribly exciting. But on the other hand it doesn't matter if you think it's exciting or not; it's what's going to happen.' " [NY Times, via Slashdot]
