Whoa. I’m late to the game on this one. I just surfed over to the Matt Cutts blog. Low and behold, there is a 302 redirect from mattcutts.com to www.dullest.com. Matt posted about this change here, and it looks like he made this change on April 26. Apparently, he is changing things one at a [...]
Anyone ever seen anything like this: WordPress Failue Notice. You know your Friday is going by very slowly when you get a failure message when trying to sign out of WordPress. Goodness. Logout Fail.

Apparently, the White House has invited a bunch of young business leaders. Twitter’s co-founder, Evan Williams, was one of those people invited to discuss the current economic crisis.
