around the country in five days
The past five days have involved sleeping in a different city every night, in this order: San Francisco, Minneapolis, Toledo, Ithaca, and New York City. I have only one piece of advice from this experience: don't attempt to drive a Uhaul into Manhattan via the Holland Tunnel. Just trust me on this. But I'm home and safe, and here is where we left off:

For self-publishers: How to Sell Your Book, CD, or DVD on Amazon.
Wired mag profiles Yahoo as the UnGoogle. It's a good comparison the strengths of each company.

Profile of the Vice empire, which is now multi-million dollars strong.
