Adding to the pile, Weblogs, Inc. Sells

I’m not one of those bloggers who normally adds to the pile, but this one’s important. Scoble is reporting via various other blogs and Memeorandum that Weblogs, Inc. (maker of Engadget, TUAW, etc) has sold out to AOL. I love Jason Calacanis’ blog. He’s a guy who understands how to run a business. I met him at Gnomedex and he seemed to be a nice, intelligent guy. This one’s important. In other acquisition news, Newsgator bought NetNewsWire. Google the names, I’m tired of typing in links. I really need to switch to Markdown or something…


Jesus Adam, I thought Arkansas had a bunch of wackos…

Boy, those Indiana videos you do are really being put into perspective:

According to a draft of the recommended change in state law, every woman in Indiana seeking to become a mother through assisted reproduction therapy such as in vitro fertilization, sperm donation,and egg donation, must first file for a “petition for parentage” in their local county probate court.

Or, in more real language, from the Pandagon blog:

Indiana’s legislature is considering a law mandating that a man better get laid if a baby is being made. Seriously, that’s pretty much how the bill is worded.

Republican lawmakers are drafting new legislation that will make marriage a requirement for motherhood in the state of Indiana, including specific criminal penalties for unmarried women who do become pregnant “by means other than sexual intercourse.”

Damn those doctors and their playing god in baby making. There’s only one holy way to get the baby juice to the baby juice recepticle, and that’s with the lights off in the missionary position.
