Private Label Custom Domains - seriously, what the hell?

I've seen my share of bad web products. Some are bad because they are poorly implemented, others are bad because they are ill-conceived. The new Private Label Custom Domains product from FeedBlitz definitely falls into the latter category. To be honest, I'm not even sure where to start here. From what I can gather, FeedBlitz wants me to pay them for the privilege of syndicating my content onto...

Beating news plagiarism online: a business plan

In the early days of the web, before high-fallutin' content-management systems, document control, and database-driven blogs, web authors were for the most part forced to stage their content in a clumsy, time-consuming way.

The Atomibulator: Atom feeds for feedless sites

RSS and Atom feeds have become ubiquitous to the point that we've begun to take them for granted, but there are still some sites stuck in the stone age. For those sites there's Atomibulator, a service that watches feed-less web sites and provides an Atom feed that's updated whenever they are. It's a bit crufty at this point--adding a feed to the service requires editing a Wikipedia page--but...
