Who do you believe Pauly Shore on the video or Pauly Shore on his blog? I donâ€™t know Ashton has gotten us all pretty good in the recent weeks, that I think we punkâ€™d by him again on this one. Because as Pauly Shore said he is stupid but not that ttthaattt stupid.
BTW we were punkâ€™d good, but I donâ€™t find that joke funny.
Melissa Joan Hart’s sister posted on her MJH’s MySpace blog that she gave birth to her second son today. Braydon Hart Wilkerson came into the world today at 3p and he weighed 7 pounds 3 ounces. I bet Mason can’t for his little brother to come home form the hospital!
The Library of Congress has announced a pilot project with Flickr. They are placing 3,000 photos from two of their most popular collections on Flickr for the public to use. The project is being called The Commons. You can read the Flickr announcement here and below is an excerpt from the LOC’s blog announcement.
That’s why it is so exciting to let people know about the launch of a brand-new pilot project the Library of Congress is undertaking with Flickr, the enormously popular photo-sharing site that has been a Web 2.0 innovator. If all goes according to plan, the project will help address at least two major challenges: how to ensure better and better access to our collections, and how to ensure that we have the best possible information about those collections for the benefit of researchers and posterity. In many senses, we are looking to enhance our metadata (one of those Web 2.0 buzzwords that 90 percent of our readers could probably explain better than me).
The project is beginning somewhat modestly, but we hope to learn a lot from it. Out of some 14 million prints, photographs and other visual materials at the Library of Congress, more than 3,000 photos from two of our most popular collections are being made available on our new Flickr page, to include only images for which no copyright restrictions are known to exist.
The real magic comes when the power of the Flickr community takes over. We want people to tag, comment and make notes on the images, just like any other Flickr photo, which will benefit not only the community but also the collections themselves. For instance, many photos are missing key caption information such as where the photo was taken and who is pictured. If such information is collected via Flickr members, it can potentially enhance the quality of the bibliographic records for the images.
The Library of Congress has 4 million prints, photographs and other visual materials so there is much more they could make available to social media sites like Flickr in the future.
Silicon Alley Insider is reporting that Yahoo may be on the verge of cutting 1,500 to 2,500 jobs.
A tipster believes Yahoo has created a list of 1,500-2,500 jobs that may be eliminated in the next two weeks. CEO Jerry Yang will reportedly make the decision to go forward with these layoffs–or not–next week. Jerry reportedly wants to announce the cuts with or before earnings (January 29th), but may not make them if the stock price recovers.
Yahoo has been one of the companies acquiring social media websites over the past few years including Del.icio.us, Flickr and MyBlogLog. If the economy continues to tank this year then there will likely be many more layoffs at various tech companies to come this year. Those who saw the fallout after 2000 have been through this before. The companies with the highest burn rates are often the first to cut jobs.
Will geeks become an endangered species? Investor and prankster Yossi Vardi delivers this lecture on the dangers of blogging. Men especially should not ignore the risks of “local warming.” This is the laptop local warming research the video is referring to. You may not want to keep your cellphone in your pocket either. The presentation includes one of Zoli’s posts from 2006.

A new website called Politweets is displaying the political tweets posted on Twitter. The tweets are seperated into by party with tweets mentioning Democratic candidates on the left side and tweets mentioning Republican candidates on the right. It’s a fun way to track news and people’s opinions of the candidates as we watch to see who is going to get the nomination for each party. Politweets was created by Character140, the people who created Twittertale.com.
An article on WriteNews.com lists some of the political news Twitters such as @politics and @RedState. The article also lists Twitter accounts that are for the Democratic and Republican candidates themselves. Here’s a list of some of the candidates’ Twitter accounts and how many followers they each have.
Mitt Romney and Rudy Giuliani don’t appear to be active on Twitter.

Writer and photographer Shreve Stockton has been blogging about a wild coyote she adopted for several months now on her blog called the Daily Coyote. She adopted the coyote after both his parents were shot for killing sheep. Shreve named the coyote Charlie. Charlie has been staying with Shreve and her cat Eli at her home in Wyoming - she lives in rural small town with a popular of just 300.
Shreve does have a coyote expert named MC who has been helping her with Charlie. If you a get a chance read the blog from the beginning. It’s a fascinating story and there are terrific photographs of Charlie. There are few videos here on YouTube as well.
