Catching Up With Blogs

I'm catching up on a few days of blog reading while I switched to a new machine. Here's a few things that jumped out at me:

  • Goodbye TechTV. Leo writes about the last day of Call for Help and leaves some thoughts on the merger. Personally, I have no idea what kind of crack Comcast/G4 is smoking. From all I can see they're doing their best to alienate most of the TechTV audience. One thing I always liked about TechTV was that they had stuff for everyone. G4 feels like it is targetted towards the 15-25 year old crowd. At first I thought it was kind of charming, but it quickly got on my nerves. Biggest missed opportunity? Not bringing over a Call for Help and not bringing over a Tech Live, a daily tech news show. Rumor has it their own weekly news show will be going daily, but not until July. I dunno, I'd think if you suddenly owned a network like TechTV, which has been experiencing strong growth in the past year, you'd want to keep some of that audience.
  • Kasia talks about The Day After Tomorrow. This is one I kind of want to see just for the special effects. From everything I've heard the movie itself was pretty lame beyond that.
  • Neil Gaiman talks about Fred the Unlucky Black Cat being sick and inspires a small poem.
  • Derek has found that Alpha-Bits may be no more. Dammit, I used to love those (even though I'm more of a Special K guy myself these days).

That's it for now, time to get out and get some fresh air.
