DaveNet: When to give away the technology.
Survey: "Should I submit a proposal to speak at the O'Reilly Open Source Convention this summer?"
I started a new mail page because I'm getting interesting email that's worth sharing.
Matt Neuburg: AppleScript's Studly Studio. "AppleScript Studio isn't a mere scripting tool; it isn't just AppleScript with some interface widgets wrapped around it. AppleScript Studio is Cocoa."
Talking on the phone with Dave Jacobs, I asked if he has a clue what Apple's going to announce on the 7th. "I don't really know," he says, "but I've heard about the iDock, which is a flat-screen on an 802.11a network that moves your desktop anywhere you want to work in the home." A very thin computer, just a keyboard and screen (maybe just a screen and a pen) and relatively inexpensive. Sweet!
Daniel Berlinger on AOL's spam filters. "I'd bet AOL knows why this happened but doesn't want to discuss it and provide information possibly to help the spammers."
Adam Curry chronicles the Rolling Stones.
We won another award, this time for OPML. They spelled the name correctly. (But why no link?)
Burning Bird: "I got into the Beetle, and we set out to drive from the south end of Seattle near SeaTac to the University district along I5 on a sunny, Saturday afternoon."
Edd Dumbill: Patent threat to W3C's RDF technology.
A decent measure of how back-to-work people are may be the current level of Weblogs.Com. Over the holidays it got quite low, as low as 48 at 4:16AM on 12/25. Now it's starting to rise towards the high of 231. It seems the lights are coming back on for another year of work on the Internet. (Postscript, it hit the high of 231 at 2:59PM and went no higher.)
Doc discovered how insightful Google can be. Not!
The first new verb for 2002, file.synchTableWithFolder, is a dandy. We couldn't do it earlier because the CPUs weren't fast enough. Now we can do callbacks, macros, renderers, etc that live in the file system, not the object database; and make upgrades easier. Should be fun. (Discuss on the Frontier-server list.)
Adam Curry: "Wow, Dave launched a Mind Bomb today."
News.Com speculates on Apple's Expo announcement.
Mike Peterson is writing a Web journal from Durham County jail in NC.
Opine Bovine: "Someone hit my dog. He's dead. My dog is dead. What do I do?"
Five new bit-level verbs for Frontier and Radio.
Apple has a new home page promising something new at the Expo on the 7th. "Beyond the rumor sites, way beyond." OK. I don't read the rumor sites. So what is it?
Apparently the Register got a copy of a Microsoft internal email about competing with Linux.
