Dan Gillmor's Sunday column is about news syndication via RSS. Seems he uses the pro version of the same reader I use on the PowerBook: NetNewsWire (from Ranchero). I use the lite version cuz, well, I don't need all the features of the full version. But over on the Win2K box I use the news aggregator on Radio, my blogging tool.

Scoble points to Cringely via my previous post, which pointed to Cringeley via Guy. So Guy can complete the circle by remarking on Scoble's pointer to me. Tee hee.

Take a look at the comment to Scoble's post for more insight. Frank Ruscica sums it up thusly:

So, while the longer-term benefits of ageism to the bottom line may be a factor, near-term considerations likely dominate senior managements' thinking re: wanting/continuing to cut and outsource jobs ASAP.

In other words, quarterly reports and their impact on stock prices (and options values) are still the biggest factor in C-level execs' decision-making. Save a little, profit a lot.
