Blogosphere Highlights for January 22, 2012

  • Hugh MacLeod at Gaping Void was ready for the most recent "Blogging is Dead" meme and he will be ready again the next time the blogosphere dies.
  • Former TechCrunch reporter Sarah Lacy recently launched a blog covering tech startups. The blog is called PandoDaily. She has $2.5 million in funding.
  • Get ready to continue to fight again and again and ignore David Pogue's incredibly incorrect and lame SOPA/PIPA article that tells you to put your pitchforks down. Clay Shirky explains why this is wrong here. Consider taking Pogue off your reading list.

  • Justin Timberlake helped MySpace launch MySpace TV at CES.
  • Social network consolidation: Tagged bought Hi5.
  • BuzzFeed raised $15.5 million in funding. Congrats, BuzzFeed.
  • Finally, here is a video of Microsoft's Tweet Choir from the 2012 CES. Take a look:
