Photobucket's MySpace Refill, DoubleClick's Nerve

Apparently, we can.
Mashable is reporting that Photobucket and MySpace have now kissed and made up, with Photobucket video embeds once again working on MySpace pages after being forced to stand in a virtual corner for the past two weeks.
But Mike Arrington wants to know "who blinked first and why," explaining that Alexa data suggests Photobucket got a PR boost from the controversy as opposed to what many would have expected to be a significant traffic decline.
Bad news is apparently better than no news at all.
Speaking of PR, DoubleClick is going on a rebranding offensive with an excellent example of new media communications online via a site called "Nervecenter," complete with chic video interviews with CEO David Rosenblatt, who speaks about the new new DoubleClick and the opportunity ahead for "redefining the digital space."
Alas, the redefinition does not seem to have been redefined prior to the announcement of Google's intended acquisition of DoubleClick, which means there's no lipstick to be found anywhere on the "Nervecenter" site about the looming privacy pig...or was that an elephant???
In any case, the "Nerve Center" is (mostly) very well executed -- long on style, shorter on substance -- but struck a nerve with me by not having any RSS feeds in sight?
What does one have to do to get a subscription around here? Drop a cookie?
