Google, now will you admit 302 hijacking is a problem?

I’m not even going to attempt to put it better than Danny does. He takes Google to task for ignoring the 302 problem and taking two days to fix their own instance of hijacking. Funny, this type of inattention is exactly what made people get turned off from the portals of the past, when they […]

It’s a direct challenge to Google’s newly renamed Google Earth (formerly Keyhole) and integrates Yahoo-like layers with satellite pictures. Or so the demo suggests. Here’s the problem. We don’t actually have anything from Microsoft yet beyond promises of how much better […]

Learn to work smarter

Search Engine Roundtable reported this morning that the ODP announced that they would be closing the site status check part of the Resource Zone forums. As always, Danny had an excellent perspective and an even more interesting suggestion. Make the OPD a wiki. Wikipedia, of course, is the enormously successful community authored encyclopedia project.
