Like all the cool kids, I’ll be at Web 2.2, November 9-10 in San Francisco. Like the web, it’s open to everyone.
Google now has a ping service. It appears to be weblogs.com compatible. Kudos to Google for not re-inventing.
I think I’m going to play hookie tomorrow and see Departed here in Berkeley. Sounds like an awesome movie, and what a cast. Wow.
A note to those of us who have been out of power for six years. Now is the time to attack the Republicans for plotting war against Iran, for raping the Constitution. It’s time to stop complaining and moralizing. It is time to take control. BTW, the reason the press jumped on this one, imho, and not the others, is that it fits the template of previous political catastrophes. “Who knew what when?” Just like Watergate and Lewinsky. The war with Iran and the raping of the Constitution don’t fit. That doesn’t make them right, or wrong.
Hastert sees a vast left-wing conspiracy.
Good to see the source of the OPML Editor C-based kernel is in Google’s code search engine. I have to do something about getting the source to the scripts in various root files available in text format (as opposed to outlines) so they could be included as well. So much of the functionality of the OPML Editor is implemented in script.
Kottke is accumulating a list of embarassing queries in Google’s code search.
Some correspondents read this post to say I replaced my defective and as yet unrepaired MacBook with a Mac Mini. Not true. How could you replace a laptop with something with a power cord? I bought the mini for my new TV set, which arrives (knock wood) later today.
Pretty sure I’ve got all the Trade Secrets podcasts, thanks to Raymond Poort. I’ve cleaned up the file names, set the dates correctly (according to the archive.org backup) and put them into one zip file. Uploading now. I haven’t listened to them all to be sure they are what they say they are, hopefully we can do that together. 🙂
