Whilst I was on a hiatus for the last year on Twitter, my use of Skype increased dramatically.
It has been announced today that 30M (million) live spaces blogs will soon be migrated over to WordPress.com in a “partnership” between Microsoft (MSFT) and Automattic.

I try to avoid blogosphere discussions unless I have something substantial to add. I don’t have holdings in any of the companies embroiled in the current takeover / acquisition debate, and to be perfectly honest I am not sure if any of the combined entities that eventually emerge will be able to compete with Google on their home turf.
Just 2 weeks ago PayPerPost launched their PayPerPost Direct service and I wrote one of my typical in-depth reviews about why I believe that this new offering really changes the paid review landscape.
