Computerworld Tech Blogs Network With Ad Revenue Sharing

Technology Blogs Network
ComputerWorld, the web and print magazine from the publishers of PCWorld and MacWorld, will launch a new technology blog network and news aggregator service later this month called Tech Dispenser (in partnership with Adify).

Unlike the existing tech news aggregators, Tech Dispenser editors will pick and choose technology blogs to be included and indexed by their service. The editors will also review and highlight selected posts from these blogs.

Content from selected bloggers will be displayed on the main aggregator website. Like Techmeme, Tailrank or Megite, only the blog post title and short excerpts will be shown and visitors will have to visit the underlying blog to read the full post.

Tech Dispenser will ask participating blogs to insert an ad snippet (from Adify) on their site and the net advertising revenue generated from these online ads will be spilt 50/50 between Computerworld and the blogger. [Adify ads are generally CPM based]

Tech Dispenser is currently accepting applications from all English-language blogs regardless of location. Payments for advertising can be made in US Dollars, Euros, or Pounds Sterling.

Text and image ads will appear in a standard 160x600 "skyscraper" unit in the location of your choice. When there are no ads in our system, you can set a default through Adify (i.e. your Google Adsense ads) to run in this spot.

The service is still few weeks away from a full-scale launch but is sure to create buzz among the technology blogs community. Thanks Tom Pimental for the details.

Submit your blog for inclusion in Tech Dispenser program here.

There's no "official" way to export your Facebook friends email addresses or contact phone numbers out as a CSV file so that you can sync the contacts data with Outlook, GMail or your BlackBerry. Some third-party Facebook hacks like "Facebook Sync" (for Mac) and "Facebook Downloader" (for Windows) did allow you to download your Facebook friends' names, emails, mobile phone number and profile photo to the desktop but they were quickly removed for violation of Facebook Terms of Use. How to Download Contacts from Facebook There are still some options to take Friends data outside the walls of Facebook wall. Facebook offers the Takeout option allowing you to download all Facebook data locally to the disk (include
