Kate Rhodes: XML-RPC vs SOAP. This is an excellent review, and hopefully will start a thorough, independent and objective evaluation of the two protocols that form the basis of Web Services technology. 

Amy Wohl: "This is my first attempt at blogging. Craig Burton is acting as my mentor. It's easier than I expected." 

I was sad to hear that Paul Boutin was laid off at Wired. 

Zeldman: "Like their colleagues at Opera and Microsoft, the engineers at Netscape have been sweating to produce a browser free of the sins of the past. Itís tragic to see their hard work undercut by suits who seem remarkably unaware of, well, frankly, everything" 

Lisa Rein has a transcript of Hillary Rosen's speech at the P2P Conf in DC last week. 

Survey: "We're thinking of doing a new version of Weblogs.Com for RSS feeds. News sources would ping the centralized server when they've updated. The server verifies the change by reading the source, and then adds it to a public list of changed sources, in XML of course. Now the question. If we created such a service, would you use it?" 

Klaus Schwab: "I look forward to seeing Dan, Abdulla and Jack at our Annual Meeting. I hope to see you there as well." 

In Australia, Microsoft defaces sidewalks with their marketing materials. IBM did the same thing to Chicago and San Francisco. In the UK, local citizens fix a bug in a Microsoft billboard

Tim O'Reilly: "I'm really glad I've been reaching out to Microsoft, and that they're reaching out to the developer communities O'Reilly represents." 

Brandon Wiley, re Tim's article, writes: "It says some things about how I'm cooperating with MS to write Hailstorm for Linux. I have a counter-blog on my own site, where I talk about why I am not in fact writing Hailstorm for Linux." 

John Robb: "Don't get scared and shut down your brain." 

Megnut: "My name isn't Megan." 

Postscript on the cross-blog memewar with Rageboy. It was a demo. I didn't want Locke to write another stupid BigPub piece about blogs. Second. How can a guy who calls himself Rageboy and writes a book about clues complain if I respond with vigor and clues. Right -- he likes it. So happy belated birthday you crufty old bastard, it's good for the flow, so say thanks and shut the expletive up.
