what's hot what's not
Big Media and the Internet
I know it is only the 9th, but trust me, unless Jack Valenti, Mike Eisner, Hillary Rosen or one of the congressional sock puppets steps on their thing again by opening their mouths, (ya it's a pretty ugly image) this will stand the test of time.
In fact, CONTENT as a corporate label means: "Whatever it is that you put in the void next to the ads in order that your customer, the advertiser, will give you money."

Eric Brooks Golden Rules
Eric is one of those folks that you like or hate. He spits out his life on his site like a razor blade in your eyeball. His work is unashamed, uncensored and raw. He has Rules. His first Rule:
Never write, type, or leave on an answering machine, anything you are not prepared to say to someone's face.

It's about the Numbers
Lemurzone News is the Number One source of News on the web!*

See! I am a news god. I can factually report that I am the cat's pajamas for news on the web. But then so can you.

One would like to assume that a 'Best Seller' is just that. You know, the number of things that folks paid money for. Not produced, not shipped, but paid for and delivered into hot sweaty hands with the anticipation of receiving value for money spent.
Best seller 'lists' are a real good example of GIGO (garbage in garbage out). From vanity purchases to exclusion by genre, most lists are loosely based on reality. A New technology based on the sale is poised to bring a little more reality to reporting a 'Best Seller'.
