Meg Whitman Campaign Shows How Not To Use Twitter 147

tsamsoniw writes "California gubernatorial candidate Meg Whitman's campaign team attempted to share with her Twitter followers an endorsement from a police association. Unfortunately, the campaign press secretary entered an incorrect or incomplete Bit.ly URL in the Tweet, which took clickers to a YouTube video featuring a bespectacled, long-haired Japanese man in a tutu and leggings rocking out on a bass guitar. And for whatever reason, the Tweet, which went out on the 18th, has remained active through today."

Submission + - Can Ubuntu reach over 16,000 anime lovers in April (thesilentnumber.me)

shadowmage13 writes: "After months of planning, i am happy to finally announce that the Ubuntu Massachusetts Local Community Team will be preparing a booth at the upcoming 2010 Anime Boston convention. We need support from the community to secure a booth and print materials including copies of the Ubunchu! manga. I really believe the Anime fandom is a perfect match for Ubuntu, and they are by nature very much in line with open source and remix culture."

I tried 1and1 as well. Bad news. The service I found to be pretty bad, slow responses to emails and difficult to cancel an account. Granted, nothing can be as difficult as transferring a domain out of go-daddy's hosting, but it was still hard none-the-less.
