Evening Reading: 5/30/07

There’s a new version of Windows Live Writer available for download.  Lots of new features.  Kevin Briody likes it.  Why in the hell does it flash every time I add a link to a post?  It’s User Account Control (which I long ago disabled) all over again.

Mahalo launched today.  Steven Streight has a good write up on it, as does Mashable.  Mahalo says it’s:

the world’s first human-powered search engine powered by an enthusiastic and energetic group of Guides. Our Guides spend their days searching, filtering out spam, and hand-crafting the best search results possible. If they haven’t yet built a search result, you can request that search result. You can also suggest links for any of our search results.

There’s a page for Scoble, one for Guy.  None for Seth.  Or me.  Seems oddly familiar….  Anyway, why does a search for wolves return NOFX (whatever that is), Kevin Costner and Instapundit as 3 of the 4 links?

Scott Karp has a good summary of the CBS/Last.fm business.  It’s about the declining radio ad dollar.  One of these days someone is going to start looking for a return on all this money old media is tossing around trying to become new media.

I was a guest on Dave Wallace and Mike Seyfang‘s The Extraordinary Everyday Lives Show podcast tonight.  It was an absolute blast!  I’ll link to the episode when it’s up.
