Rodrigo A. Sepúlveda Schulz: The stuff I like about video publishing online. Rodrigo is slowly lifting the vail on his upcoming video publishing service.
PodGuide.tv: Mefeedia video podcast directory: “If, as I have, you’ve been discovering the wild and sometimes bizarre world of podcasts with your newly-acquired iPod, you may want to visit Mefeedia, a directory that lists thousands of video podcasts. It’s the place I go to find some of the channels I feature here on the site. The depth of the directory is astounding.“
Official Google Blog: Get News in Portuguese: “We’ve just launched two different editions of Google News: one for Brazil and one for Portugal.”

The problem I have with Yahoo! 360° is that.. somehow, it seems to lack some kind of focus. I go there now and then, and as an IA, I can see the underlying structure, beautifully structured, it’s like a work of art almost. But I look at the first page I land on, and I see.. nothing. Some people I’ve added.. but nothing to grab onto. Nothing of substance. Then I click on some things, and I just see more empty pages. Sure, there are blogs, My Page, you name it, but it all feels like a bit of a wasteland. It’s just not satisfying, and I don’t find myself returning there often. Whenever I go it’s just professional curiosity.
What’s web2.0 about mefeedia? There are no rounded colors, few pastel colors, little AJAX (only when really necessary), … Buzzword compliance no achieved!

But is it web 2.0? (God I hope not!)
