Friday frissons

Don't forget to check out the events listed in the IPKat's superbly-updated 'Forthcoming Events' feature, which occupies a large slice of space on the left-hand side-bar of this weblog's front page. The number of events currently listed is 34. FREE events are listed in an environmentally friendly green.

That Google Book Agreement? The IPKat mentioned it in brief, but American scholar, gentleman and fellow-blogger C. E. Petit is keeping a far closer eye on it via his weblog, Scrivener's Error.

News has been brought to the IPKat's sensitive ears that Yahoo!, the somewhat-left-behind US online search engine, is engaged in “meaningful” due diligence about a possible combination with Time Warner internet unit AOL, but that a deal is not imminent. The Kat is overjoyed to see the words "meaningful" and "due diligence" in such close proximity, but wonders what other sort there is.

  1. 'Meaningful' is a filler word: it is semantically null.



All comments must be moderated by a member of the IPKat team before they appear on the blog. Comments will not be allowed if the contravene the IPKat policy that readers' comments should not be obscene or defamatory; they should not consist of ad hominem attacks on members of the blog team or other comment-posters and they should make a constructive contribution to the discussion of the post on which they purport to comment.

It is also the IPKat policy that comments should not be made completely anonymously, and users should use a consistent name or pseudonym (which should not itself be defamatory or obscene, or that of another real person), either in the "identity" field, or at the beginning of the comment. Current practice is to, however, allow a limited number of comments that contravene this policy, provided that the comment has a high degree of relevance and the comment chain does not become too difficult to follow.
