I bought a house in Berkeley this morning. It’s a real beauty, an 80 year-old stucco, built on a hillside, with a view of downtown SF and the Golden Gate Bridge. I spent six months looking, it was by far the best house I saw. As with my first house in Woodside, there was a moment when I knew I’d own it. In this case, it happened as I walked in the front door. The place has a magic feel to it. What does it feel like? Home. :-)
I got a couple of reports that McAfee’s anti-virus software doesn’t like one of my links on 12/12/03. Go figure.
My first review of Deadwood, back in April 2004. I called Wild Bill Hickock the “Wild West’s equivalent of an A-List blogger.”
Three years ago: “Not only do I make mistakes, but sometimes as I’m making them, I know I’m doing it.”
I just got a pointer to the BitTorrent site of the Edwards campaign, I clicked on a couple of the downloads, my BT client, Azureus, launched, the movies downloaded (really fast!) and I laughed out loud.
Download the movies yourself, and participate in a little bit of history. Now, there’s nothing particularly interesting about the movies, they’re the usual campaign stuff, Edwards being introduced by an actor (Danny Glover), talking to a union group.
The production values are very good, which is too bad (see Friday’s Ze Frank), but the whole package is very cool, of course.
ThinkSecret has a scoop, Apple will offer movie rentals via the iTunes Music Store, to be announced in three weeks at the WWDC.
Rex Hammock: “Placating the movie studios with some easy to work-around DRM scheme is, perhaps, Apple’s role in moving things forward.”
It was hot here, just like everywhere else in the northern hemisphere, but the great thing about the Bay Area, and Berkeley specifically, is how nicely it cooooools down at night. It’s only 10PM and it’s already 67 degrees. Gotta love it.
