- Thanks to a hint from David Sanger, president of the Stock Artists Alliance, I wrote earlier about "Using Google Base For Selling Stock Photography" (Jan. 30, 2006).
Google disclosed yesterday that "we're planning to enable people to buy items on Google Base using their Google Accounts. For buyers, this feature will provide a convenient and secure way to purchase Google Base items by credit card. For sellers, this feature integrates transaction processing with Google Base item management."
More details here: Buying on Google Base.

- This is my last post as the owner of The Blog Herald.
While Kottke recently experienced some problems (see also the NYT: "Full-time blogger Kottke throws in the towel"), Duncan Riley of The Blog Herald, who had been an incredible help back in 2003, today writes "GOOD BUY" after selling his blog for an undisclosed amount: "So, so long and thanks for all the fish, and I’ll see you all on the other side of the galaxy at some time in the future."
A personality with a voice sells, not copying.
