Jonathon Delacour: "Our 'blogs' run on Userland’s Manila software but other tools, such as Pyra’s Blogger are equally popular. Their remarkable ease-of-use is possible because you, the user, are shielded from the back-end intricacies."
Dan Lyke says that GUI people (like me) don't get pipes. Well I gotta say I was doing Unix pipes in the 1970s, and pipes are great, they're kind of like HTTP, they get you from point A to point B in a reliable way. The subject of Unix pipes even came up in the discussion I had with Udell. The next layer-up would be something like Windows Scripting Host, or Apple's Open Scripting Architecture, which would allow a common set of interfaces for embedding any scripting language/environment in a host app, like a Web server, or a paint program.
I added a new section to the What is Scripting News? page.

Adam Curry: "For inter-city travel I fortunately can use my helicopter, but in the city I now use my Smart Convertible."
NY Times: "Judging by comments Mr. Gates has made recently, the man who created the world's richest foundation may have learned more about the real world by trying to give away his wealth than he did while making it."
Sunday morning guy-chat
This one's for the guys. After "doing it" with your girlfriend, you're blissing out, not quite asleep, in a very private place.
She scratches your back or kicks you in the butt. She wants to cuddle and "talk." This is the last thing you want to do.
I wonder if all other guys have this experience? Perhaps women aren't built for this kind of bliss. The scratching and kicking and talking spoil the whole thing. If only women would listen. But us guys never want to talk about it, right?
(This is one of those times when I'm glad the discussion group is taking a holiday.)
