DaveNet: What is a Web Application?
If I don't respond to your emails or postings it's because I'm on my way to Phoenix. Have a great day, see y'all tomorrow!
Last night I put together the schedule for the Distributed Computing Track on Developer's Day at WWW9 in Amsterdam, May 19, 2000. That's quite a mouthful! It was also way late. Sorry to the WWW9 people. Glad it's done now.
I like Esther because she gets silly. She thought I should wear jeans to the soiree in Davos. I didn't. But I will wear jeans at Esther's. The official national dress of the Internet. Yaya.
Great to see the NY Times in a leadership position covering the patent crisis. At least we can document the Internet boom de-constructing. Let's give the candidates something to talk about, leave a trail for historians to follow.
All over the weblogs this morning I'm seeing notes about the SXSW show. I'm sad I'm not there. The energy seems so beautiful! All those digital cameras. A whos-who of the Weblog World. Instead I'm going to Esther's. This is the first one I've been to in close to ten years. I haven't been counting. I stopped going because the group of people I grew up with had become just like the older people we used to hate. To the people at SXSW, who are young, some as young as 21, cherish this experience! And do better than my generation did, keep the optimism, and don't accept the bullshit.
This is the essay I wrote after the last Stewart's I attended. (Same crowd as Esther's.) It was a good goodbye. I sang with Denise Caruso, one of the keynotes at SXSW. "On Tuesday night, in the main lobby of the Phoenician Hotel, about twenty people sang a chorus of Que Sera Sera. Over and over. It was beautiful. No fear. Ye-hi!"
Another friend, Jodi Mardesich, will also be speaking at SXSW. I worked with Jodi when she was at the SJ Merc, on the story of the Steve Jobs' coup that toppled Gil Amelio. Jodi just left Fortune to become part of an Internet startup. Go Jodi!
My love to everyone in Austin. I'm jealous! Have fun!! Be young.
