The New Yorker article on Blogger is on Geocities. "You know, to make him coffee and get him stuff. I'd do it. For free, even!"

Reuters: CBS radio news pioneer Robert Trout dies at 91.
The newest member of the Democrat legal team is David Boies, the US government's attorney in the Microsoft anti-trust case, and Napster's defense attorney. It's total World Series time. Who's next?
Daniel Schorr says "No matter how this turns out 1/2 of the American electorate will feel that they have been robbed." This is a bug. I think most Americans don't really care if it's Gore or Bush.

DominoPower on UserLand
Russ Lipton is a Lotus Notes developer. A few months ago he discovered Manila and then dug into Frontier and Radio UserLand. And he did something wonderful, he wrote an explanation of what we do at UserLand from the point of view of a Notes developer. His two pieces, linked below, are the top stories on DominoPower.
DominoPower: How UserLand's Frontier can revolutionize content management.
DominoPower: A closer look at Manila and Radio UserLand.
I hope people in the Notes community read these articles.
And to IBM people who read Scripting News -- we want to build bridges between your software and ours. We're working on a complete SOAP 1.1 interface for Manila, it will be the broadest SOAPable Web app when it's ready (early December). We're a small company focused on making the Web a great writing environment. We like working with big companies with large installed bases and strong marketing and distribution. We have good software, but we can't do it all, and we know it.
Tim Bray, is one of the editors of XML 1.0, and a friend.
Late last year he started a new company to create a new kind of Web directory, a visual one, where sites are grouped geographically, on a visual map of a continent most of us never think about -- Antarctica.
Today is their launch day. Here's the press release.
And here's the new website.
Tell me what you think. I'm starting a new Mail Page right now.
And thanks to Tim for having the guts to start something new.
