- Just An Online Minute... Best Blogs
- Something new from Forbes.com. The ingenious folks at the online magazine, not the print magazine (they want you to know that), came up with a listing of the best blogs as part of the Forbes.com Best of The Web.
Forbes.com-ers came up with their picks for the best blogs in 20 different categories including art, autos, blog tools, careers, marketing, media, music, technology, and video games. Of course they had to winnow their picks down from a mountain of well-known and lesser-known titles.

- Just An Online Minute... The Young and the Wired
- This morning, just one day after the Pew Internet & American Life Project issued a report stating that teenagers' use of the Web has outpaced that of adults, Burst Media released a study concluding that the Internet is well on its way to becoming the entertainment medium of choice for online consumers between the ages of 14 and 24.» 0 Comments
- Just An Online Minute... XM/Napster Join Forces
- XM, the satellite radio service, and Napster, formerly the Web's file-sharing bad boy, are teaming up to introduce an online service that will let XM subscribers purchase music they hear on the radio service.
It's a nifty idea. XM, which now boasts 4.4 million subscribers, says the joint venture dubbed XM + Napster, will launch in the fourth quarter and that it will also market XM/MP3 players that enable music fans to bookmark tracks they hear while they listen to XM for future online purchases. Talk about multitasking! The Minute doesn't know if she can keep up with all ...» 0 Comments

- This morning, when the space shuttle Discovery launched at 10:39, viewers didn't need to park themselves in front of a TV screen to watch the liftoff.

- Just An Online Minute... Yahoo!'s Konfab
- Yahoo! scooped up a company called Konfabulator, which makes software for tracking the weather, stock prices, and other news and information. Konfabulator's software allows users to monitor the information without launching a Web browser.
The application sounds cool, but why would Yahoo! want to steer people away from opening a browser? It doesn't make much sense, unless the Minute is missing something here.

Users will be able to see the content accessed by ...» 0 Comments
- Just An Online Minute... Web Video 24/7
- As we write this, there is breaking news of evacuations at three Tube stations in London and the world is on edge, again.
While news of this nature is always bad, it's good for Web video news operations which get to test their chops and flex their muscles. Most of all, they get to reel in viewers who are at work and want to process what's happening on the other side of the pond. Eyeballs and engagement -- clicking on video, companion stories, sidebars, and the like, matter -- in this medium.» 0 Comments

- Just An Online Minute... Women at the Top
- It started, as most discussions of this kind do, with a common lament: "How do we keep highly skilled, talented women executives from opting out of the workforce?" It ended with the four women charged with commenting on this nagging dilemma talking about the need for more flexible schedules. Yes, we hear that a lot, not only in the executive ranks, but in all walks of the work life. We hear it constantly. We hear it from women and we hear it from men.» 0 Comments

- Just An Online Minute... Minutiae: Tony Ponies, Woody, and the Girls
- Woody, Get a Life Please ...: Live, from the polo grounds in Bridgehampton this weekend, the Minute caught actor Woody Harrelson skirt-chasing his way to get the attention of a young model standing on line to use the ladies room. It was a sight to behold - those piercing, larger-than-life blue eyes; the deranged, insistent gaze; a gaggle of security people; and the confused looks from women in the queue, including this here Minute.
Now what was the 44-year-old actor doing chasing a Barbie doll who was at least half his age? INSERT laugh track here. Woody turned out ...» 0 Comments
