Daou Report

Apparently the Daou Report has been incorporated by Salon. In principle, I don't really mind the move. What I do mind is that in order to read more than one of the blog highlights you have to jump through Salon's advertisement hoops. In fact, I don't even mind Salon's advertisements--usually if I'm going to read one of their articles, I don't mind viewing a few ads. But the thing I found so great about the Daou Report was that you could quickly skim through dozens of blogs without clicking on anything. For me, this was the essence of it's coolness, and sadly it's missing in the new format. Oh well, maybe they'll fix it. Update: I just realized that if you use an RSS reader, you can still read the highlights sans advertisements. I recommend Newsfire.
