Exclusive: LinkedIn Kill LinkedIn Fast Widget Functionality

LinkedIn FastIt was good while it lasted, and provided needed functionality to LinkedIn, and was widely supported by open networkers on the social networking platform.

During a routine check of functionality I discovered that the “get” method of form completion which was used by the fast connection solution is now being blocked, and thus have made a notification post on the LinkedIn Answers service within “Using LinkedIn”, and have also changed the graphic that was being served to a number of sites to hopefully notify them of the change.

WOOT Creating Twitter Splogs

Twitter | Google Toolbar ButtonIf an affiliate created a blog and fed a datafeed to that blog, a large proportion of the blogosphere would regard that blog as a splog, especially if it was on blogspot.

Kathy – Just Linking To Something Meaningful

Sometimes you just link to something because you should, as a sign of condolence or just some level of connection of thoughts and this is such a time. Kathy Sierra’s post is distressing just reading it, I have no idea how distressed she is writing it. Hang in there.
I am not taking time off, but then I am not being threatened, but I think even like a blogging machine like Robert needs a break once in a while (without Twittering too)

PayPerPost | Ted Murphy vs Jason Calacanis The Ultimate Showdown?

For some this will already be old news, but I feel I have to include this video just to show impartiality when discussing disclosure, paid posts and Jason Calacanis.

I first started to watch on Sunday morning, and as was typical with my connection, even at Podtech’s lowest quality setting, it was watch 10 seconds of video, wait 30 seconds for it to cache some more.
Then for some reason the stream connection broke and didn’t restart. The payer insisted that I start watching from the beginning again – no chance.
