Against the Browser's Will: Make Mashups Talk Across Domains: "There are essentially two approaches to get data on a map. The most common way is to manipulate the data dynamically; all mapping solutions allow the user to manipulate the overlays dynamically. However, Yahoo's Maps API supports an additional method: you can create a GeoRSS file and refer to it when the map loads.

Official Google Reader Blog: Square is the new round.: "Feed bundles are small sets of feeds related to a topic that you can subscribe to all at once. Historically, these were done 'by hand' by the Reader team, but this just wasn't working out. So we've written a program to make 'bundles' for us – no more manual editing of bundles, and a much richer and interesting set of subscriptions for you to choose from.

Now, you can learn more than you ever wanted to about NASCAR, yoga or knitting."
