Steve Gillmor: Groove's Rubber Soul.  

Scoble: "Only at a tech conference can you trade cards with four people at once with Palm devices." 

Mike Donnelan is running a caption contest. 

AP: "Macromedia Inc. is claiming it owns the patent to Adobe Systems Inc.'s popular Photoshop program, according to a suit filed in federal court Friday." 

Adam also found Wired's article on Apple's new music device confusing, and specs out his dream device.  

This cartoon perfectly illustrates why the Mariners can't beat the Yankees. "I love NY but I don't love the Yankees." Oy yoy yoy. 

I warned about angering The Baseball God in 1995. "'Isn't it great Pete! No matter who wins, *we* win!' Imagine her putting both of her index fingers to her cheeks, twisting them slightly and swaying her head from side to side. I groaned when I heard her say it. 'This is not good.'" 

This is why east coast teams have a geographic advantage over west coast teams. On the east coast they don't give a fuck about the other guy's skyscrapers. On the west coast we try to let "everyone" win. Now in software that's admirable, in baseball, it's a prescription for earthquakes, or worse

Lispmeralda is "a client-side implementation of the XML-RPC protocol using ELisp for Emacs" 

Aaron Cope has a bunch of tools for Weblogs.Com including an XSL stylesheet, a bookmarklet for pings, and a Mozilla sidebar. Reminder, the next step in the corner-turn happens on Tuesday. 

Oh my god, it's Don Norman and Marc Canter, on stage, at the same time. I guess this proves once and for all that they're not the same person.  

O'Reilly's Dave Sims reviews the USA Act which has now passed both houses of Congress. 

News.Com: "The U.S. Department of Justice is growing suspicious of the labels' increasing power, and antitrust investigators are beginning to invite start-ups to closed-door discussions in Washington, D.C., to determine whether the labels are violating antitrust laws." 

NY Times: "One of the signal pleasures of living in a democracy is the privilege of point of view. You can love New York and feel compassion for all the suffering that has happened here and still deplore those smug Yankees."  

One year ago today I made a list of my mission-critical software. Not much has changed there.
