AP: "Thousands of spectators, mostly women, filled the Tehran University stadium for the ceremony, singing and waving flags as five young Iranian athletes dressed in white-and-pink robes and black Islamic head scarves took a lap around the grounds in horse-drawn chariots."
I wish Zeldman would learn Manila. He rules out content management for designers because it's too expensive or difficult to use. Oy. We've been working on the inbetween sweet spot for years. At this point there's no excuse for an expert like Zeldman to not present Manila as an option for his readers.
This is so cool. Archive.Org has a version of this page from 1996 and most of the links are archived too. Thank you. What a trip down memory lane. Here's Scripting News from July 1997. What a funky header graphic. Here's what DaveNet looked like in 1996.
My name is Dave and I'm a Microsoft addict. Help me.
CmdrTaco: "Now flame me if you feel it necessary."
Afghanistan. Afghanistan. Afghanistan. I'm so tired of Afghanistan.
What is News Industry Text Format?
Flangy: "Unemployment: great, but not the wave of the future."
Sue me if you want, but I find Lawrence's Notebook more interesting than his other weblog.
News.Com: Developers -- What .Net will cost you.
I've gotten a bunch of email pointing to that article, people seem to assume I'd be outraged that Microsoft is charging for services to developers. Well, as Gomer Pyle said, surprise surprise, I know how much money it costs to provide "free" services. We're still unwinding from the lunacy of the dotcom period. There's not much of a business model in giving away things that cost money. Now, sometimes platform vendors give away services to developers to build a market. The more Microsoft charges for theirs the better, as far as I'm concerned. Makes it easier to compete, profitably. Nice.
Abraham Lincoln: "It is true that you may fool all the people some of the time; you can even fool some of the people all the time; but you cannot fool all of the people all the time."
Dan Gillmor: "The government wants to be able to track pretty much everything that moves digitally. It may find allies in the entertainment industry, which would be delighted to have the same capability for songs and movies."
John Van Dyk: "Is anyone else noticing the parallel between the slowdown of snail mail and the slowdown of email?"
Craig Burton: "iFolder is a personal Internet storage system."
Last year on this day I was in NY, getting ready to go to the World Series, and attending the launch of Groove. This year the Mets aren't in it. Of course that doesn't mean they aren't the philosophical World Champions.
Proof that NYers indulge in wishful thinking.
Weblogs.Com corner-turn continues
Evan Williams: "For those who have wondered, Blogger will support the new Weblogs.Com." Right on.
Dan Lyke: "Okay, I kludged in a hack to make the Flutterby CMS notify the new Weblogs.com when the front page has changed."
Rafe Colburn: "I've updated my weblogging application so that it notifies weblogs.com whenever I add or update an item."
Adam Curry is working on a blogrolling macro.
I broke the home page at 9AM for about an hour. It stopped updating. Silly mistake. It's back up now.
Matt Bean has a PHP interface to Weblogs.Com.
There are just four implementations. We need one for Slashcode, AppleScript, Tcl, Rebol, Java, you name it.
Moveable Type is supporting the Weblogs.Com XML-RPC interface.
Trained Monkey shows just how simply it can be done.
It's being discussed in Greymatter-land.
People are complaining about the Weblogs.Com corner-turn on MetaTalk. "No good deed goes unpunished."
BTW, one of the benefits of the corner-turn is that a bunch of UserLand-hosted Manila sites are now much faster. They will get even faster on Nov 3 when we turn off the scanner.
