Pretty busy today, and I have a board meeting this afternoon, so I'm going low cal today and will be back tomorrow with a full serving.
- buried in the WSJ; Donald Trump is going Chapter 11 again. Yeah, he's being forced into bankruptcy in order to restructure Trump Hotels and get a cash investment from CSFB. The good news is that bond holders are getting .96 cents on the dollar, the bad news - for the Don - is that his ownership is going from 54% to 25%. Do ya think they'll wrap this into the next run of Apprentice?
- will Wal-Mart get into the broadband wireless business by putting WiMax base stations in their stores? It's certainly an interesting question to consider. Starbucks is already a virtual network operator, albeit with help from T-Mobile, but their isn't anything to stop chains from going down this path. Personally, I think it's a grand idea.
- The W3C working group for data access is looking for public comments on what the proposed RDF Query language should look like. Here's your chance to get you .02 cents in.
- thoughts on RSS business models. This was covered at the Blogon event a couple of weeks ago, basically it comes down to delivering advertisements through RSS... yeah, I am sooooo excited. One big reason I like RSS is that I can get away from the ads.
- Ross covers this with more knowledge and depth than I could ever hope to muster.
