What Communication Experts Need To Know - Where To Submit My RSS Feeds And Weblog URLs To Get More Exposure, Visibility And Reach
Maintain high visibility and exposure for the online content being generated by closely following the major distribution media.
As a rapidly increasing number of content sources, new and old, migrate or add RSS as a key distribution channel, and as more people utilize RSS newsreaders and aggregators to keep themselves informed, the ability to maintain high exposure and visibility is gradually shifted from a complete attention to major search engines and content optimization techniques to an increasing awareness of RSS feed directories and search tools.

Check out the video greeting of Bryan Singer.
Something I found interesting in the video, is that Singer has Richard Donner's Superman: The Movie screen shots mounted on the set as inspiration.
I see that as a good sign.
More video blogging from the set to follow as production advances.

I can't stress enough the importance of reading this document. It is absolutely amazing how politicos co-opted so much of our language and led us down the path to THEIR agenda.
Unfortunately, the monstrous PDF file previously available for download made that a 'challenging' endeavor. Thus, I thought it was very important to bring to everybody's attention the existence of an online, readable, searchable, text version of Frank Luntz’s Playbook. It is a masterpiece of manipulation and an historic political document.
And besides, it is IMMENSELY ENTERTAINING!!!
This is great news for those millions of us who can’t (or don’t want to) download the massive PDF image file. It is also an invaluable asset to bloggers, site proprietors, writers, and other researchers who wish to search the text (something you cant do with the PDF file because it is an image file…not a text file).
Read it and judge for yourself. You will be outraged at the degree to which you have been hoodwinked by the greatest propagandists since ... well... you know who.

One of the most appealing features of chess is the number of strategies that can be used to default one's opponent. For every strategy, there is a counter strategy, and often times a good strategy in one situation can lead you into trouble in another situation. In every case, you should always know your opponent and tailor your strategies to oust him/her. Of course, this means that in order to be a great chess player, you should adapt your strategies accordingly to your different opponents. Knowledge comes before action. Know thy enemy, then know how to apply strategy to thy enemy.
Lots of people like playing chess, but have no idea how to play well. Stop being a mope. Read and learn some basic strategies so you can compete!
