Link roundup

1. The song from that Nike commercial I posted this morning was Ellie Goulding's Under The Sheets (Jakwob remix). Here's more than a dozen remixes of Goulding's songs (including the one from the video). So far I like the Jakwob remix of Starry Eyes.

2. The guns in Terra Nova are apparently Nerf guns painted black.

3. Google News apparently won't index sites written by one person:

We currently only include articles from sources that could be considered organizations, generally characterized by multiple writers and editors, availability of organizational information, and accessible contact information.


  1. A) Thanks for the follow-up on the Ellie Goulding music.
    B) Ok, I don't blog so let me see if I understand what you're saying: Google News won't list things on your site or Matt Drudge's site (no big loss there...) or any other blog that doesn't id itself as an organization?
    Is someone new in charge of google now? I feel like with this and the "Plus" fiascoes, they're doing things they would never have done a few years ago.
    I'm assuming you want to be indexed by them?

  2. I don't do any reporting, so wouldn't expect to see my stuff show up on Google News, but I've seen other very competent solo bloggers complain about being rejected. I don't think they realized their rejection was due to this policy.
