The new Blogger 'Flag' Button

I just happened to observe the new 'Flag button' on the Blogger navbar. The new feature has been added by Blogger to let users immediately report "objectionable content" to Blogger by clicking the Flag button.

Blogger Navbar Flag Button

How it works from Blogger:
When a person visiting a blog clicks the "Flag?" button in the Blogger Navbar, it means they believe the content of the blog may be potentially offensive or illegal. We track the number of times a blog has been flagged as objectionable and use this information to determine what action is needed. This feature allows the blogging community as a whole to identify content they deem objectionable.

Also, just as I signed in to flickr for posting this image of the Blogger Navbar with Flag button, I learned of the new flickr sign-in with Yahoo! ID. One caution though. If you choose to combine your Yahoo! and flickr logins, then you wont have the persistent flickr login as all Yahoo! services need you to relogin after 24 hours.

Blogger screwed up big time again. This will never work as intended and will only get them into a shitload of trouble.

I couldn't disagree that this may not be the most effective way to tackle splog,or spamblog that so much threatens the medium of blogging. As Mark Cuban says," it is like going after the zombies one at a time with a shovel."

Startups for a stronger Resume?

When the whole web is abuzz with keywords such as Ajax, Web 2.0, Meebo and all, there is some uncertainity about how this new Internet Bubble will shape up.

Mike at Techdirt writes that some of these new startups may be only to actually stand out for the crowd and act as a strong resume.

While the complaint is that so many of these companies are built to flip rather than to be sustainable businesses, some are noticing that this process is really just a better way for some to stand out and get a job. You build a company quickly and cheaply that gets some attention, and a bigger company comes along to scoop up your company, giving you a nice "signing bonus." In effect, the purpose of these companies is to act as a strong resume to stand out from the crowd.

I'll have to admit that the nature of Pottermania is beyond my comprehension capabilities! As more and more fans of all ages and countries immerse themselves in Harry’s adventures, adding fuel to the belief that Pottermania is inescapable, I am purely and simply baffled by its ability to appeal to all ages.

Bored by the inactivity prevailing in this muggle world, I began to read the first one of the series and immediately concluded that reading beyond the tenth leaf was something impossible. Undeterred, I watched the first movie. I Hated it. But with the evil-wizard becoming apple of more and more eyes with every passing moment, around the world, it could only have been something wrong with me and so I watched the second movie. And then it became so easy to establish that I loathed the Potter Kid!

Just a passing thought - "Would it be a bad idea for a Potter special appearance in Oliver Twist? The poor kid could do with some wizardry."

Gmail Chat Disabled

The fact that it happened does not surprise me but that it took so long for our network administrators to figure it out does.

And if you are wondering how do you disable Gmail's chat features on your network, you only need locking DNS lookups to, by returning
