For past three days I have come under a severe comment spam attack, and this has forced me to do what I never wanted to do – go for moderated comments and only for registered users. I hate to do this, but the evil bastards who spam us bloggers are to blame. The scum that they are, they are ruining the whole weblog experience. I think it is time for weblog tool developers to step-up to the plate and come-up with more humane way to over come this problem.

  2. Om Malik’s Broadband Blog » Verizon FIOS insures future monoply Friday, October 14, 2005

    [...] A reader who is a happy Verizon’s FIOS customer left an interesting comment on one of the older posts. He said he loved the service, but decided to save some cash and wanted to switch back to the older technologies. My problem is that Verizon monopolizes your house once FIOS is installed. By removing your copper wire you are now forced to stay with Verizon until other carriers have fiber optic capabilities. I did not find out about this until I wanted to switch back to DSL to save some money. They said “Nope, can’t” I have not heard of this before, and if you have, then drop me a note, or leave a comment. It is understandable given that they are spending a lot of money rolling out the service, but why rip out the copper? In Wired Posted Friday, October 14, 2005 at 1:34 PM PT [...]

    [...] UPDATE: Om says that there are also links to MSN Music and eMusic’s services. There are no links to Yahoo Music, which is curious, since its not like MSN isn’t a competitor as well. There are more links to iTunes than any other store, which may speak to the size of iTunes music library. Posted: December 15, 2005 by Nathan Weinberg in: [...]

  7. Om Malik on Broadband : » Wholesale Blog Plagiarism … Alert Tuesday, December 27, 2005

    [...] Updated: December 27, 2005: The wholesale blog plagiarism is a much wider problem than most of us realize. In the past few days, as we tried to get one site shut down, many more examples have come to light that are simply ripping the content, and repurposing it for making Ad dollars. I can list many a few names here, but why give them the traffic. Some suggest no-more-full feeds, which has sparked off a whole different debate. I am not cutting off the full feeds because of some people are not doing the right thing. That doesn’t mean I am not worried about this whole trend. I turned to Dick Costolo, CEO of Feed Burner and asked him if he could do something. Dick replies… [...]

    […] Via Om Malik’s Broadband Blog, “The New Office Space“: “No office space was rented, communication was primarily through email lists and a private wiki, and meetings were held at cafes with free internet, with notes and ideas quickly disseminated to those who couldn’t attend. When a contact was needed to help out with services such as advertising, sponsorships or donations, cell phones came out and calls were made, and issues were often resolved before the meeting was even over.” […]
