Restaurant wants to make Yelp unreliable
Matthew Williams, boingboing.net

Botto Bistro in Richmond, California is unconcerned about its Yelp rating. In an effort to undermine the reliability of its Yelp page, Botto Bistro is working to be the worst-rated restaurant in the Bay Area and is encouraging its customers to lea…

Ive been reasonably happy with Tumblr. It is nicely integrated with most of the tools I use, the price is right (free, sort of), and they have a nice community. But like all things the “free” aspect has to come home to roost, i.e. someone has to pay at some point and the ads are piling up while the feature velocity oils slowing down.

I plan to try WordPress for a while, see if I like it before taking the plunge… again. Last time I self-hosted, I don’t think I’ll take that on again just yet.
