The April Fools Joke That Keeps On Giving [PIC]

Source: Tech Crunch / “The Sacramento Bee mentions our ongoing litigation with Facebook and our next Attorney General, Chris Kelly (which was actually settled later that April Fools Day).

One thing I’m going to do in the future is go back and clearly mark April Fools jokes. I can easily understand how a non-tech reporter could be clicking through links, see that, and add it at the end of a story and create this kind of confusion.”

note: You can post jokes even if you are Michael Arrington, at Tech Crunch.

Excel is hobby of a Microsoft Most Valuable proffessional.  We’re very similar. I climb, sing and create photoshop slide-shows in my spare time.

Owner of Hemmy.net, Katana Disappeared

hemmy.net's owner
Hemmy.net, was one of my favourite entertainment blog.  It was a bit different in the crowd.  The name of the owner was probably Katana. Anyway. I’ve been visiting the site to see new updates in last months but he wrote his last post and stopped blogging.

User of Hemmy.net commented on the last post;

—————————————————–

– this place has a serious lack of updates

– it does. It’s gotten my hopes up a fair few times with a burst of consisant updates, but sometimes it just ends up really annoying me with the lack of them.. but when it does update it’s pretty decent, so i’ll keep looking at it

– hey guys, are you alive?

– come on hemmy.. don’t let more people down =(

– Just starting to wonder if you guys are alive, it’d be kinda sad if we kept on nagging and you guys were dead. . . So if you’re alive, just comment or something so people know whats happening. This site used to be really cool and interesting, until it started getting behind on the updates. Hope you guys are well, and keep up the good work.

– WHAT’S WRONG!!!??? I still have the hope of open the page and see and update… =’(

– This site is one of the inspirations for my site but this is the longest stretch of non-updating I’ve seen. Please carry on giving us entertaining links.

I’ll still be checking Hemmy every now and then in hopes of new content.

– Are you guys ok? making a long worldtrip somewhere? sick?

– hope the owner is all right and well. worried something might have happen to him. wish there’ll be updates soon.

– hey does anyone know that other website that this guy runs?

maybe we could find something about whats going on here, and see if he’s alright????

– it does seem like something’s wrong o.o owner just disappeared like that?

– Are you dead?

—————————————————–

Absolutely we wish that he is fine and just gave a break.  He is good blogger, and he shouldn’t give up internet. There is just “a thing” that makes me think that everything is fine; he removed contact page.

Anyway, Come on Katana

Jeremy Schoemaker and His Incomparable Blogging Style

jeremy schoemaker He Says: This is a great chance to get your brand out there and also support a GREAT CAUSE! All of the winning bidders money will go to the Affiliate Marketers Give Back The short version is this: There is an auction on here for me to wear your company logo during affiliate summit. The winner will send me 3 shirts to wear at Affiliate Summit West. I will wear no other shirt than your shirt during the conference and parties. You will receive a TON of exposure- Video Exposure:

  • At Affiliate Summit this year we have gone through all the background checks, union agreements, and other hoops to be one of very few people allowed to take video inside of Affiliate Summit West. I already have about 15 companies booked to interview them about their services and also will be doing some general video.
  • I also am asked about 10-20 times to be video interviewed (nobody is supposed to shoot video without authorization people will do it outside of conference areas) and your shirt will be shown.
  • I have over 10,000 youtube subscribers and am by far the most subscribed to person in this niche. All of the subscribers get alerted each time I upload a video. Each of my videos also has a chance of being syndicated by techcrunch/mashable or another large HUGE website and giving your company more exposure.
  • I will also put the video on our CDN which will be shoemoney branded and get more exposure on the blog here.

I Say: This is not the first time i’ve heard about Jeremy Schoemaker, the founder of Shoemoney Media Inc . He is an incomparable blogger. He is a search engine marketer but the biggest part of his marketing strategies  is  “sensational marketing”. While he was thinking of this T-Shirt campaign, he already knew that, other bloggers won’t able to stop posting about him easily.  I know you’ve expected that i’ll say give up internet to Shoemoney. No guys, you’re wrong, if you still don’t have a little idea about the rules and shortcuts of internet success, give up, you give up internet.

Digg’s Cost 5 Million / a Year

Spence E.Ante, from Business Week, wrote and article about Digg and the whole Web 2.0 Media Blogs covered that story. The reason behind this business fail is Microsoft and Microsoft really freezed Digg’s advertising strategies with tons of useless banner ads. It’s a three years of contract.  I know that Microsoft paid good money. If not, Microsoft should give up internet, if they paid good money but Digg Guys can’t manage it well, digg guys should give up internet. If there is something secret that we don’t know and we go on talking around rumors, we should give up internet.

The Huffington Post excerpts liberally from third-party sites’ stories and uses this content to drive significant traffic to itself.

The Huffington Post’s news aggregation business drives enormous traffic to the third-party sites its editors link to (including, occasionally, this one). The Huffington Post also often excerpts liberally from third-party sites’ stories and uses this content to drive significant traffic to itself.

As the web journalism business model evolves, aggregation will become more important. The sense of what constitutes “fair use” here is–and should be–still evolving. The first reaction of many content creators is to feel that any large content excerpt taken by another site has been “stolen.” If the excerpt drives significant traffic back to the creator’s site, however, the creators often are–and should be–grateful for the link (we certainly are). If the aggregator takes the entire story without any credit, gratitude, permission, linking, or traffic in return, however, content creators justifiably feel ripped off.

This is not news for nerds because many people know this truth. The -only- relation between HP and “NEWS” is; HP’s name. What do you think hp guys? What about to give up internet? Not now?

Can you believe this? Google is broken. I’ve been talking about these for a month. Google is broken, and this is the reason why we’ve changed our name to Give Up Internet! Hey Google, i can’t say you “give up internet” but at least, take a holiday.
