Google Buzz is the Web’s latest Twitter-like tool, launched on February 9th. At this point in the game, it’s not the features of these sites (among them being Facebook and FriendFeed) that developers are focusing on, but the built-in user base; Megan Berry on HuffPost agrees.

What more can you say about Led Zeppelin?

First of all, let me apologize to my subscribers for the flood of entries this week. I’ll likely return to my post-a-week-or-two instead of three posts in as many days.
