Talk about a slow newsday

Filed as General on July 8, 2006 7:28 pm

There is hardly anything entertaining or interesting happening in the blogosphere today unless one wants to talk about the Rocketboom mess. And I’m tired of talking about it.

Instead, let’s take a look at some interesting posts and blogs out there:

Over at Another Blogger, Aaron Hockley writes about 9 Things Every Blogger Should Understand. Number 9 is some sage advice:

Not having your blog hosted on your own domain is setting yourself up for failure when you need to move it or your web host (goes away / is no longer free / changes its policies / pick your own fate).

Jeff Zeldman writes about his experience in seeing a copy of the Declaration of Independence in New York:

Standing in the presence of these yellowing pages is like glimpsing the face of God, for they are the foundation of American democracy, and their core idea underlies all human rights struggles, liberation movements, and emergent democracies around the world.

For the Apple users out there, Phillip Ryu has created a list of the ten most beautiful Mac OS X applications.

And fianlly Techcrunch highlights a competitior to Basecamp. Buddy of mine has tried it out and likes what he sees so far.

Enjoy your weekend —
