The Pulitzer Prizes
"The Who's Who of Pulitzer Prize Winners is more than simply a roster of names and biographical data. It is a list of people in journalism, letters, and music whose accomplishments enable researchers to trace the historical evolution of their respective fields and the development of American society. We are indebted to Joseph Pulitzer for this and an array of other contributions to the quality of our lives."

Person of the Day: Galileo Galilei

"Galileo Galilei (Pisa, February 15, 1564 – Arcetri, January 8, 1642), was an Italian physicist, astronomer, and philosopher who is closely associated with the scientific revolution. His achievements include improvements to the telescope, a variety of astronomical observations, the first law of motion, the second law of motion, and effective support for Copernicanism. He has been referred to as the 'father of modern astronomy,' as the 'father of modern physics,' and as 'father of science.' His experimental work is widely considered complementary to the writings of Francis Bacon in establishing the modern scientific method. Galileo's career coincided with that of Johannes Kepler. The work of Galileo is considered to be a significant break from that of Aristotle. In addition, his conflict with the Roman Catholic Church is taken as a major early example of the conflict of authority and freedom of thought, particularly with science, in Western society."

Question of the Day: Do the A-list bloggers still matter?

Keywords: MySpace, A-list blogger, Digg, Generation Y, Dave Winer

Derrick Oien:
"I was talking to Peter today about some cool marketing stuff he is working on. The topic of influencers came up and I told him that I am not interested in the blogging intelligentsia or the web 2.0 crowd in general as I feel that many (not all) of them ignore the youth market. I told him that case in point to me was that Dave Winer, the inventor of RSS, ignored the rollout of MySpace's implementation of RSS and Podcasting. I told Peter that it was funny to me that this post I wrote is the number one search result for Google for the words Myspace and Podcasting and that the 'blogosphere' said nothing about the fact that 45 million people now see RSS and podcasting on their number one addiction. Hey Dave, What's the deal? THIS IS HUGE. This is way more important than the gazzillion web 2.0 companies that rollout RSS and other stuff that have ZERO customers."

Audio of the Day: Charles Fishman/The Wal-Mart Effect Interview

Keywords: Wal-Mart

"In this interview, we talk with Charles Fishman, author of The Wal-Mart Effect: How the World's Most Powerful Company Really Works--and How It's Transforming the American Economy."

"This book started with a story in the December 2003 issue called The Wal-Mart You Don't Know. You can't have read it without remembering the story of Vlasic pickles. Charles decided to write the book after he found that there was so little available on Wal-Mart. With the effect this company now has on the American economy, he felt it important to find out more about this secretive giant."
