DaveNet: The Crazy Bar Scene in Star Wars.
Survey: I'm thinking of going to the Builder.Com conference in New Orleans in December. I love the city and I can feel the need for a break coming. Reviewing the schedule I see a bunch of Scripting News readers are speaking there. I was wondering how many people are going to the conference?
Conference website. (Opens in a separate window. Yuck!)
Dan Gillmor: "So. It's no decision today in the Microsoft antitrust case. That means I and another zillion journalists, lawyers and tech industry folks will be speculating for at least another week over what Judge Jackson will actually say."
Wired: IPO Eyes on Cobalt. Buy some of this if you can. A great company with a revolutionary product.
MSNBC: Akamai Soars on IPO. "In afternoon trading, the new issue is up about 460 percent from its $26 offering price. It shouldn’t be a surprise. After all, the company has a mix of positive factors going for it that are as potent as rocket fuel: technology that makes the Internet work more efficiently, the hottest IPO underwriter around and a soaring broader market." (Red Herring has a report too.)
ZDNet: Who is the Open Source Community? "Jones says he believes that there's 'no great expectation of recognition ... but people give to share.' (Believe it or not, oh children of the Reagan Era.)"
Michael Swaine: Click and Sniff. "The stench of your email box, filled with multiple spam smells. Musk-enhanced chat rooms. Cool. What a time to be alive."
Economist: Nerd World War. "Especially in Asia, computer nerds have nudged their way to the front line this year, arguing that the Internet is a potent weapon. Are they right?"
Webreview: Why would you use RSS?
New channel: Webreview. Recursive!
Andre Radke: "I am tempted to conclude that HTTP Digest Authentication is currently useless for practical purposes."
Washington Post: "I'm keenly aware every day of the fact that I'm competing with such a competent, paranoid, ruthless company," Gassee said. "But justice will prevail."
Tony Perkins: "Perhaps somewhere amidst the fad and hype of the Internet, we are all actually doing something that is important."
