Adding A Blogroll Can Be Detrimental To Your Site Ranking
Navigational elements on a blog or any website are an important feature, but you should be careful not to take things to extremes which can hurt the progress of your site, both from a SEO perspective and for website conversion.

Checking Out The My Book Essential External Hard Drive

Covering All Aspects Of Enterprise CRM
We've talked about a lot of topics around the Social CRM and Enterprise 2.0 space and I think it's about time we get a bit deeper into both of these areas and explore how they fit together. I get a bit frustrated when I hear people talking about SCRM and E2.0 from the same high level point of view all the time (I'm also guilty of this). So, what I want to do moving forward is really push the envelope. I'm not saying I'm going to be right or wrong but I am hoping that what I write and talk about will make you think differently about both E2.0 and SCRM. Let's take a look at some of the important and interesting things we've covered so far and then build some sort of a future roadmap for what we should cover in the future.

The Gender Divide in Social Networks
Influence is a controversial topic and its measurement and definition are increasingly scrutinized as social media democratizes one's ability to earn stature and prominence in new online societies. There's a clear delineation between influence and popularity and it's important to understand that in social networks, influence is not derived by the quantity of followers, friends, clicks, or "likes." Nor is it discernible by the frequency of which one participates in their respective communities. While these serve as indicators of influence, they are not necessarily constant factors in its quantification.

Recovery Act and USDA Boosts US Broadband
The USDA released information concerning 126 new fundings for broadband across the US via the Recovery Act. An encouraging, yet surprising, trend among the various projects being funded is the creation of high-speed, high-bandwidth, fiber-optic networks. These funds given by the USDA are targeted in rural areas, and thus it is interesting that many rural areas will have better broadband in the next few years than many metropolitan areas currently do or will have.

University Establishes Supply Chain Management Major
Not all college degrees were created equal. Someone with a kinesiology major will have trouble being thought of as anything other than a jock, for example, while law students are respected. But wherever it winds up in that hierarchy, it seems important to report that a university has begun letting students major in supply chain management.

Personal Branding Has A Branding Problem
If most people in business today were asked to describe someone who had a personal brand, the first image that often comes to mind is of the often-ridiculed "social media guru" persona - someone who talks endlessly about social media and is well known online for it, but has little real experience at anything beyond talking about themselves. Others might think of someone with a big personality who has used social media expertly to amplify their success. Earlier today a journalist for CNN/Fortune ignited this debate about the value (or lack of value) in a personal brand through an article that featured Scott Monty from Ford*.

Statsr.net Adds A Flickr New Stats Package
I tested out Statsr.net this morning, a new free stats package that uses the Flickr API and was pretty impressed. Developer Guillaume Le Roy developed the app that offers in many ways more complete and robust statistics than Flickr offers natively. At present Flickr only offers Flickr Stats natively to paid Pro accounts.

Disclosing White Paper Sponsorships
Most people can agree that there's nothing inherently bad about one entity sponsoring another; in terms of research, many expensive studies could never have been conducted without this practice. Think of charity runs and patrons of the arts, too, if you like. But recent events have highlighted the benefits of identifying sponsored white papers.

Critical MS Security Update Leaves XP SP2 and Windows 2000 Systems Out of Luck
Earlier this week, on a Monday and a week before this month's Patch Tuesday, Microsoft uncharacteristically felt compelled to push a security update to remedy a severe system threat that allows remote code execution on all versions of Windows. Security advisories began appearing in mid-July, and Microsoft could not wait a week longer for the second Tuesday of the month, when system administrators expect and plan for system updates and patches, to release the fix.

Custom VIM settings in a multi-user Environment
Vim is handy text editor, which improves upon the included editor in Unix, vi. With so many plugins and scripts available for VIM, many developers consider this application their number one source for editing and developing code. With all the available customization, vim can be finely tuned to exactly what you need. The ability to finely tune, however, can become a problem when you are sharing a vim instance with other developers.

Taking An In-depth Look At Ubuntu For Business
Well, let's face the fact that most of the populace on the web actually works on Windows. The rationale of their doing so in verity differs from individual to individual. Sometimes, it's the way how a kid is brought up at schools, and for others, it's the ease of working or may be the sheer ignorance of trying to explore and use something which can be termed as "better".

How The Creative Commons Relates To WordPress Theme Licenses
I thought for completeness I would throw out some quick notes on the creative commons and how it relates to both GPL and proprietary WordPress theme licenses. I am not a lawyer, this isn't legal advice, and I am trying to make this "non-specific" to any particular theme because it affects users of themes, not just the theme authors.
