Dan Bricklin just sent me email about his inclusion of Gillmor Gang and Gillmor Daily on his Top Ten Sources page. Dan talks about this here.

A few nights ago a few of us were gathered together by Yahoo to preview some new RSS tools. As is customary at these events, the Yahoo executives chatted us up.
Just posted the latest Gillmor Gang with Riya's Munjal Shah, with whom Doc Searls the Attention Bunny and I had a spirited conversation at 1AM several weeks ago in Mike Arrington's TechCrunch kitchen. The Gang was interrupted after an hour by a crash of TimeWarner's 800 servers, and by the time we restored the connection, the Gang had evaporated into the woods.
John Roberts is beating the dead horse slowly once more on full text feeds. Yet his most compelling argument against his position is his own blog.
Gillmor Gang member and AttentionTech co-host Mike Vizard gets new day job, reports Sam Whitmore: * Former CRN editor-in-chief Michael Vizard has joined Ziff Davis Media as senior vice-president and editorial director for the company’s Enterprise Group, comprising eWeek, Baseline, CIO Insight, Microsoft Watch and eWeek.com.
When Dare Obasanjo and Jason McCabe Calacanis come out swinging against forward motion in attention, you know something important is happening. Both are important figures in this reboot we're calling Web 2.
Audible's proffer of a proprietary format for podcasting generated a lot of heat and light, including some from Doc Searls that reverberated through a Gillmor Daily conversation we had that I'm now releasing in two parts, the first of which I just posted. At about the same time, Nick Bradbury and I released a joint post about attention, OPML, and namespaces.
For the last four days my family and I have been in hell. Those who don't have pets can skip to another feed.
Nick Carr: Amateurs should, and will, be able to disseminate their creations, whether podcasts or songs or blogs or films, over the Internet. But those who hope to make a career of writing or talking or making music or shooting video should be able to protect their work and try to earn a living from it.
I've been waiting for someone to notice the last edition of the Gillmor Gang, and now this guy has. Nice job.
Alex Barnett has an interesting post suggesting that OPML is a great format for attention data. OPML is already supported by every RSS aggregator, so it seems a natural format for storing feed-specific attention information.
They spent a whole year telling me that the Web was broken.Jon UdellIt wasn't me telling you that.
As president of the Attention Trust, here's our initial response to Robert Scoble's post regarding Google's patent applications: It is great that Google is making productive use of attention data. We invite them (and everyone) to join AttentionTrust and work together to understand attention in an open, transparent way.
As Mike Vizard calls it at the end of today's AttentionTech with Barb Darrow, whether it's Office Live or Office Dead is for the jury, I mean the audience, to decide. That's because the reboot here is about the users being in charge.
Jeff Clavier of Software Only joins AttentionTech for Part I of a discussion about innovation, faux attention, and rebooting the Valley.Part II is up now too.
