Still saying Yahoo!

Yahoo! followers, please read this from Ken Doctor, then read this from Bob Benz.

I'm on the inside of the Newspaper Consortium deal, so I will say no more than this: I agree with the latter more than the former.

Individuate me!

My friend Steve Outing wrote about attending the Global Individuated Newspaper Conference in Denver yesterday.

In sum, the conference title muddles the theme: personal news. (Really, isn't "Global Individuated" somewhat like "Jumbo Shrimp"? Hat tip to the late George Carlin.)

Steve saw the event as full of messages and rally cries for the news business; in effect, "get off our cans and start offering personalized news services on our sites."
