Technorati has a great new "current events" page, sort of a Google News of blogging. Check it out! This seems like a great way to follow the war online. Of course now we have one more index to check - alongside Daypop, Popdex, and Blogdex... I love this comment by Ken Layne - "CNN is so Gulf War I". It is so true.
CBS really messed up. They posted this picture with the caption "In a photo taken using infrared night photography, B-52s fly over Baghdad during the raid Friday". Well, it is a fake - look at the grayscale/invert picture and you can easily tell the same plane has been duplicated three times. B-52s don't fly that close together anyway, and they don't fly "over" anything - they get close, then their bombs fly the rest of the way. Sheesh. CBS is so World War II.
If you want a blow-by-blow of war news as it happens, check out The Command Post. All sorts of people are tracking all sorts of media, and posting excerpts. Really good.
I don't care if you think this war is a mistake, but it totally pisses me off if you don't support our troops "over there". These people need help.
LGF is outdoing themselves today, I particularly like this one...
Here's a fascinating site - Uruklink.net, the home page of the one and only Iraqi Internet Service Provider. According to their site meter, 40% of their hits come from the U.S., despite the fact that the site is in Arabic. What is especially interesting is that this site is still on the air - the U.S. is doing everything it can to convince Iraqi civilians that it is not at war with them.

Please check out Day by Day, a great comic strip in the tradition of Doonesbury. I'm finding myself there every day...
Are you as exasperated by spam as I am? Here's an interesting idea - "e-stamps" which would charge a tiny fee for each email sent. Of course regular stamps haven't prevented junk mail, but it could definitely help,
And then there was one? SonicBlue has filed for bankruptcy; they are (or were) Tivo's closest competitor...
Here's a great name for a blog: Interrobang. Pretty nice blog, don't you think]
