Something For Everyone: Buffy, Paid Links, PageRank, and Hakia
Important things first! Joss Whedon, who surely you all know of Buffy fame, is gearing up to do a new show with Eliza Dushku on Fox! Eliza, of course, played Faith the kick ass vampire slayer on Buffy and if you’re saying wasn’t Buffy the slayer then yes, it’s confusing. I’ll loan you the DVDs. Or just come over to Buffy night on Tuesdays. It’ll all make sense. Anyway, this is fantastic news for sci fi fans and Buffy fans and really, anyone who’s a fan of good TV. You do like good TV don’t you?
In other news, I’ve teamed up with my twin potato fan, Greg Niland, for what was previously his show (and now is MY show, er, I mean our show, no evil laugh here, nu uh), GoodKarma, on Webmaster Radio. We’ll do the show live at the same time the show has always aired — Thursdays at 1pm Pacific, and we did the first one today. Check it out if you want to hear us ramble, I mean provide insightful commentary, on the recent very tiny (you may not have even heard of it it was so small) Google paid links controversy, the PageRank deductions, and how I feel about going from a PR 7 to a PR 6. (Toolbar PageRank means nothing! No one should even look at it! But why did I have to go down? *SOB!*) On the plus side, it’s hard to even see that diminishing green bar through the tears.
And in even more news, writing at Search Engine Land continues. Despite my mockery of Hakia’s musical efforts (but the mockery was all in good fun! I love that CD actually. How can you get any better than songs about search?), they let me into their offices a couple of weeks ago when I was in NY for SMX Social Media and we talked natural language processing and semantic indexing and social networking through search.
Told you there was something for everyone. What more could you want than Buffy, PageRank rants, and search? Well, maybe a robot butler who brings you coffee in the mornings.
