LA Times: Weblogs Put a Face on a Faraway Disaster.
Milestone: Stories work in Radio 7.1.
Jakob Nielsen: End of Homemade Websites. "Most small websites are probably better off with Yahoo's default set-up than anything they could design themselves."
Esther Dyson on yesterday's survey: "I'd do that for free. Isn't that what being open-minded means?" Yes.
Mozilla 0.9.5 was released on Friday.
Is this how they think of Silicon Valley in the rest of the world? The Land of Hyperbole. Hey that's a bug in New York, I think. They listen only to the hypemasters in Silicon Valley and then complain that we're all about hype.
There is a lot of substance in Silicon Valley. We make systems for connecting wires between human beings to foster communication. We lost our way, and thought we did what NY does (publishing and financial services) and retail (all the pet food websites). Nah, that's not what we do. We do user interfaces and infrastructure, and at that, we're the best. And it's terrible that our firemen, policemen and teachers can't afford to live here. We must do something about that!
We're the best, but it's not like we don't have competition. Seattle, Utah and Boston are all in our game too. NY thought they could have a high-tech industry, but it seems that didn't work very well.
Tim Paustian has a FAQ on anthrax. He's a microbiologist at the University of Wisconsin (my alma mater) and a highly credible person. In other words, I trust Tim, I trust UW, and I believe what they say.
Mark Aldritt: "I feel that one of the most significant new scripting features of Mac OS X 10.1 is its native support for the XML-RPC and SOAP protocols. XML-RPC allows you to invoke code running in any virtually and programming language and operating system. To try and illustrate how cool this is, I've put together a simple XML-RPC server written in a few lines of Java that you can run on Mac OS X, Windows or Unix and which you can invoke using AppleScript."
Peggy Noonan: "It is not only that God is back, but that men are back."
Guardian: "FBI investigators have officially concluded that 11 of the 19 terrorists who hijacked the aircraft on 11 September did not know they were on a suicide mission."
