Jason Shellen : Official Google Blog: Here comes Measure Map - Google picks up Measure Map plus co-creator Jeff Veen and crew. Glad to have the deal all sewn up. #

kellan : MeasureMap goes to Google, which means Ruby at Google! - Beginning of a trend? (I'd say this will fix the MeasureMap scalability probs, except G hasn't fixed the ones with Gurchin yet) #

jkottke : Google buys Measure Map, Jeff Veen leaves Adaptive Path to work at Google - Google buys Measure Map, Jeff Veen leaves Adaptive Path to work at Google.

plasticbag : It's official! Google buys Measuremap! - I've chatted to Veen a few times over the last few months but still this is a surprise. It's a lovely piece of work, which I imagine will fit Blogger very well. And I'm looking forward to hearing about Google's culture and swapping notes...

Alt Weeklies, San Francisco, Curiosity, and Bullshit

4/02/2006 @ 06:09 UTC

Linkorama : Alt Weeklies, San Francisco, Curiosity, and Bullshit - And realize that the reason Craig is eating your lunch is not merely because his information is better, or because he cares about being online and you don't, but because he's given people a place to connect with each other, instead of just being preached

Andy Baio : Anil responds to SFBG editor's rant on Craig Newmark - the editorial compared Craig's List to Wal-Mart  [via]

jkottke : Anil on the conservatism of liberalism - Anil on the conservatism of liberalism (by way of explaining why Craigslist is taking away everyone else's classifieds business). "A complete unwillingness to be critical, an almost astoundingly low set of criteria for acceptance -- these aren't the trait

jimray : Anil Dash: Alt Weeklies, San Francisco, Curiosity, and Bullshit - "...a business model predicated on nickel-and-diming for rent ads or charging brokers a premium price for ALL CAPS in a listing, combined with some edge-of-legality back pages full of ads for whores is certainly not contributing to a community."

Douglas Bowman : Alt Weeklies, San Francisco, Curiosity, and Bullshit - When I read the SF Bay Guardian rant that Anil linked in his counter-rant, I was left with a foul taste in my mouth. Anil's qualified and well-written response nails it better than many of us could have. The reason Anil recommended management from his old

IEBlog : A New Look for IE

2/02/2006 @ 10:09 UTC

kayodeok : IEBlog : A New Look for IE - One of the most obvious changes since Beta 1 is in the toolbar area. We focused on building a smaller, more compact UI that exposes only the most commonly used features, saving space for the content and tab areas

Douglas Bowman : A New Look for IE - Stepping through some of the new UI in Internet Explorer. Possibly the most interesting new feature is the ability to zoom the entire page, instead of just the text (following Opera's lead).

deusx : IEBlog : A New Look for IE - Is it just me, or does this look like a GUI widget test demo? 3 different styles of buttons, in various colors, in seemingly random arrangement. Tabs squished in between other semi-related buttons. This is improvement?
