Follow-ups to some earlier articles
A couple of updates to information I posted earlier:
1. In my recent 'Around The Blogs' article, I linked to Greylocke's post about a reported real estate scam. Reader J. d'A. informs me that this information has been questioned by Snopes, which describes it as 'probably false' - although not certainly false. I guess readers will just have to make up their own minds.
2. I reported earlier that Google Reader is shutting down, and linked to a couple of lists of alternative software to replace it. Now comes news that social news Web site Digg is developing its own replacement for Google Reader. I think that's a pretty smart move, and should attract a lot more traffic to Digg's Web site. If you access this blog via its RSS feed, you might want to look into Digg's offering when it becomes available.
