Interesting...

Directly below this post you should see a YouTube video embedded as the primary content. I found this video on YouTube and embedded it through the very nice auto-post feature found on every video in that site.

Somehow my "auto posting" this video has somehow flagged me as some sort of spam risk and added a text verification box to nearly every action that I take on blogger. Had I just copied and pasted code, I guess that I would still be trusted as being a human but my hitting submit on another site makes it possible that I'm a robot.

Beep.

Whirr.

I've used the YouTube posting feature a few times on this blog in the past, and this sort of cross-pollenation tool is what I think defines the best of web 2.0 - I can use different services tools together to tell a story. I just wish that I could use these tools without being considered as some sort of slimeball.

Follow up to "I've stopped watching news"

A couple months ago, I wrote that I rarely watch "news" anymore.

I still don't. As I said, I've given them up for Stewart, Colbert and CNBC. Apparently I'm not the only one that thinks this is the best way to go.

This article suggests that in a direct comparison, I get as much news from The John Sterwart Show as I would from other, more "news oriented" sources.

Keep up the good work John!
