You Got Stale! (AOL Reboots Itself)

In February, AOL acquired the Huffington Post for $315 million. (Previously) The formation of The Huffington Post Media Group was announced, to integrate content for a new combined, claimed audience of "117 Million Americans and 270 Million Globally." Then, AOL fired 200 US employees (leaving many sites without editorial staff) and began restructuring. Today, they announced that 30 brands, including popular site Slashfood, will be closed or folded into existing Huffington Post sections. [more inside]

What's the deal with restaurant websites? Devra First, the Boston Globe's restaurant critic, wonders too. Previous discussion on the blue (tangential to discussion of OpenTable).

Fate: 1 Internets: 0

Newsfilter: 30,000 customers in the San Francisco area lost power today at about 1:50pm PDT, in a series of power failures which knocked out a major datacenter hub: 365 Main. The hub controls servers for many social media sites, including Technorati, Netflix, Yelp, Craigslist and all Six Apart properties, including TypePad, LiveJournal and Vox. (6A's twitter stream has updates.) More here and here. Amusingly enough, 365 Main tempted fate and released a press release today patting themselves on the back for "two years of 100-percent uptime".

Google Spreadsheets is just the coolest

The 50 coolest websites : according to Time Magazine, at least. Who cares if they changed the world or not: as long as they're cool, that's all that really matters! Unsurprisingly, Digg's in there, as is MySpace (!), but they somehow seem to have neglected Metafilter, deciding that Cute Overload is way more hip instead. And no, Flickr's not in this one either.

Gone Black?

Web sites protest by going black. A little over 100 web sites have bandied together to go black on this international day of protest. Some with interesting art, some with personal notes and others with strong words. Are there other web protests going on that you've heard of? Links?

GeoURL

Forget BlogChalking. Go by the globe. A (slightly) simpler cousin of the GeoTags search engine (which I could never get useful information from anyway), the GeoURL ICBM Address Server (by Joshua Schachter of Memepool) pegs sites to specific points on the planet via good old-fashioned coordinates and META tags. While the web supposedly has no borders, many sites - like blogs - have a place at their heart, a virtual (if not physical) home. Now you can see if your site has neighbors.

Web

Web Hosting prices must be at an all time low for this sort of thing to be going on. What's the deal? Must be a good deal though. Quite nice though.

Disassembled.

Disassembled. Assembler.org ("making art with machine code") is no more. Quoth the Zeldman: "Lately we feel like Smokey the Bear - and the forest fires are winning."

Windows XP inserts its own links into any page on the Web.

Windows XP inserts its own links into any page on the Web. I especially like the part about their fear that some pages are "underlinked". The implications behind this are huge.

5k site debuts

5k site debuts...and it's awesome. Stewart, Eric and Matt have obviously collaborated well on this project.
It really whets my appetite for the TicketStubs site, which I'm really looking forward to, aren't you?

Overpaid, anal-retentive web usability expert

Overpaid, anal-retentive web usability expert puts himself out of a job? Or perhaps engages in second-round of funding to maintain astonishing levels of frankly unfathomable self-publicity? You might think so, but I couldn't possibly comment.

The finalists for the SXSW web competition have been announced.

The finalists for the SXSW web competition have been announced. I'm sad to see that a site I urged the owner to enter, evolt.org, did not make the cut in the online community category. I'll be pulling for a couple cool sites I like and read regularly when I'm at SXSW next month. Do you see any favorites on the finalist list?
