Links: 2009-01-29

Here it is, my daily smörgåsbord of links from around the web. As usual, these links spathe world of economics, finance and politics. But, I will also start inserting a few links on technology as well because I am a bit of a technophile. You can see some of my Tech blog links in the blogroll.

Before I finish, I want to sound off about Google. The company has become a bit of a 9,000 lb. elephant on the Internet (much bigger than the 800 lb. gorilla). They have way too much control for my tastes. I have found this out in particular because there is no substitute for FeedBurner, which has been syndicating my feeds. Basically, FeedBurner blows and I am sick of my feed being down and screwing up my site. So, I have unlinked my primary feed from FeedBurner. If you are getting my feed via FeedBurner, don’t. The best feed is https://pro.creditwritedowns.com/feed. Please use this feed going forward if you want any measure of reliability.

Whew. I am glad I got that off my chest.
