My Web 2.0

Flickr just announced Yahoo’s new My Web 2.0. This is Yahoo’s first shot at Social Search. The relevancy of the results is somehow determined by a combination of the standard relevancy algorithms and the preferences of your friends. It should be interesting to see how this develops over the coming weeks.

There’s a blog, too.

Update: Jeremy, Andy, and Matt weighed in with their comments.

Ripoffs Abound

Exhibit A:

  1. Contact Sheet
  2. Pitchfork
  3. Kottke
Now, at least Kottke gave credit to Pitchfork, but I find it to be quite the coincidence that each of the images that these articles are centered around is 200 pixels tall. It seems to me that these articles about Nike ripping off Dischord have themselves ripped off some imagery. Please note that I’m not condoning Nike’s acts; I actually agree with these articles. I just really doubt that they have asked for permission to use these images.

Update: Nike has apologized. I’m impressed.
