Sometimes I try to explain to others that blog without a feed is not a blog at all. Sometimes I turnd down submission for si.blogs And sometimes I try to explain why trackbacks are so cool.

Scoble has a nice list of five things that make blog better that “ordinary” web page.

What made blogging better than Web sites? Five things.

1) Ease of publishing.
2) Discoverability. (Pings weblogs.com or technorati or another ping server).
3) Conversationality. (Trackbacks or as-they-happen referer logs, or now being part of Technorati and other blog search engines).
4) Linkability. (All posts should have permalinks).
5) Syndicatability. (All content should be available in RSS feeds).

If you don't have those five, you shouldn't call your stuff a blog. Especially if I can't link to it from here.

I couldn’t agree more.

Perhaps: could NOT agree more?

:)

I also agree.

Not that a sentence without NOT does not mean anything!
It does, and it's interesting to think what does it mean. So you see, it's I who could've been mistaken.

I have a (not so-related) question:
- I am using Canon IXUS 750 digi cam. It's quite nice. What are the main advantages of using your GetCanon over the Windows' built-in, plug and play, Get Pictures application? (Becaused I tried yours, but I didn't quite get it, perhaps I would like it better for the second time? I don't know.)
