DaveNet: Amazon's Market Conversation.
Len MacDonell got a response from Amazon about the patent.
I got a different response. I sent an email back saying "I don't believe that Amazon is an uncaring company. I think you got caught making a bad decision. I could once again be an Amazon customer, but not until this issue is resolved. Let me know if there's anything I can to. Everyone makes mistakes. A company with a strong future acknowledges them quickly."
Raymond Yee posted a message asking if people can contribute to the planning for the March 25 meeting, just as we were getting the new website ready to help us all plan a successful event. The official launch of the site was tomorrow, but there's no reason not to move it up a day.
Faisal Jawdat shows how to respond to Amazon.
Dale Dougherty: Controversial Software Patents.
Luke Tymowski: "To me what Bezos and company are doing is not unlike showing up at an open house party, changing the locks, and selling off the contents, while the owners stand outside in a state of shock. The Web belongs to everyone and no one, not just Amazon."
Rick Segal on Amazon: "Man the folks at my former employer must be loving this. You couldn't script it. Amazon takes the lead in the sore winner derby, film at 11. Amazin."
Opportunity knocks. I'd like to work with two or three designers on new interfaces for Weblogs.Com. It's a just a Manila site with macros. If you like playing with CSS and DHTML, and have maxed out the templates on your Manila site, send me an email and I'll create a playground for you on Weblogs.Com.
Neil McLeish: "How do I serve an ASP page with Frontier as the main web server, IIS as the secondary on port 8080, to serve the ASP page and have the ASP served page appear as an include of some sort within my Manila page?"
Jorn Barger: Hacking URLs for fun and profit.
Hey, I just heard about the Microsoft Alumni Network.
Andrew Wooldridge takes us on a tour of Netscape with his digital camera. Coool!
Cabinet is an excellent weblog.
Another interesting site: Naval Open Source Intelligence.
Note to Dale, O'Reilly Net is looking really good! Are you using the syndication stuff we worked on last year?
Andrea's Weblog: "From then on, it took me six weeks to ponder the question whether I wanted a boyfriend who lived some 400 km away and whom I would only be able to see on weekends and during our vacation. But finally, I couldn't resist him any more.."
***Another Top-100 List!
