The company has everyone in a bit of a stir, as it brings together all of the data the search giant has collected about you across its many online properties.

Brads reaction: With many domain extensions such as .info .mobi and .biz being added, I am not sure why this will make any difference. I like Googles idea better of getting rid of domain names all together.

In a worldwide internet revolution to be announced next month, web addresses will expand beyond dot.com, with governments, businesses and entrepreneurs expected to rush to apply for signature domain names. The move will reduce confusion and cut reliance on search engines like Google, Australian expert Adrian Kinderis says. "Ultimately, this will be a new way we use the internet," said Mr Kinderis, CEO of the domain name registry services provider AusRegistry International.

Brads reaction: Will be keeping an eye on this with interest.

No, the title is not a joke. Microsoft's open-source CMS platform, called Orchard, did hit its first full number release today, meaning that if you are in the market for a CMS there is one more option that you need to check out. In case you are unfamiliar with Orchard, Microsoft first showed off the platform in November of 2009. The company then transferred (gave) the project to the CodePlex Foundation the next month, with a promise of three years support. The team at Microsoft that had been working on the project were gifted along with the software.

Calebs reaction: Interesting take on how the web as a medium compares to more traditional outlets.

The web is not, despite the desires of so many, a publishing medium. The web is a customer service medium. Intense moderation in a customer service medium is what editing was for publishing.

Davids reaction: in the wake of Gerry Harvey smart company article last week http://bit.ly/aCDX9c declaring "online retailing is a waste of time" here are four great examples of 4 big US retailers using social commerce techniques to drive sales as part of a multi channel sales approach.

Brads reaction: With all the argument over Flash v HTML5 for video delivery. What about other aspects of what Flash does? With the difficulties of developing apps in HTML5 maybe its time for Adobe to stop whining, take advantage of the opportunity and build a version of Flash that outputs HTML5?

Item: I got mail from really well-known Web technologist his competence is not in doubt making his first foray into mobile development. He wrote: I m trying to avoid appstore hell by developing rich HTML5 apps, but the performance on iPhone is shoddy whenever network IO is going on, and I seem to be able to crash the browser on our departmental Nexus One with such frequency it's not even funny. I think I've got a lot of optimization to do to my app to dial down network access, but I just wondered what the jungle drums say about HTML5 as a sensible approach for delivering apps in 2010.

For lots of web designers and type lovers, there's much to talk about when it comes to typography and the web. Traditionally, embedding specific fonts into live content (that is, not just using a font to create a text graphic) has been difficult because it means that the end-user needs to have the font installed on their own computer system in order to view the page as designed.

Link building for small ecommerce sites can be amongst the toughest SEO challenges - but also the most common. I'd like to share a few bits of advice for anyone rising to the challenge - whether you're working in-house or as an agency. These are targetted at small companies, probably with limited internal resource or a small SEO agency contract, and who don't have a PR firm able to get them into newspapers or an advertising budget that will put them in magazines, on radio, etc.
