Today is the last day of voting for the Scripting News Awards for 2001. Tomorrow I wll announce the winner in the Best Technology Weblog category, and then I will announce a winner in another category every day, culminating with Blogger Of The Year on Friday.
It's 11PM, only one more hour remains to vote. Tune in at midnight for the first winner.

Doc is a nominee for Blogger of the Year. Watching the votes come in on BOTY has been sheer torture. It's a race to the finish between two top bloggers. Quite close. Only 25 minutes remain to vote for your favorite. The future of the world hangs in balance. (Sorry for the sarcasm.)
Survey: Which version of Windows do you use?
I'm watching my Apple piece climb the chart at Daypop. I always wondered why people don't discuss what I write unless it upsets someone. I wrote some (I think) interesting articles about weblogs, but the weblog community seemed to not care. Anyway, I just wanted to acknowledge this. I like it when people pass on pointers to things I write. Thanks!
Diane Reese is waiting for her back to come back. I just went through this. My back is working again. "Life is a game of inches."

IBM: "The present invention is an apparatus, system, and method for providing reservations for restroom use."
John Robb has pics of Microsoft's tablet PC and home station. "Goodbye Dell and Gateway," he says.
I'm likin Dann Sheridan's weblog. Him and Jrobb are good together. Like cream and coffee.
Looks like my very good friend Adam is up to his elbows in wiener boys. It's not a trial by fire exactly, more of a trial by whine.
Paul Boutin: "After surviving the switch to Mac OS X, I decided to risk upgrading my PC, too."
The NY Times is running an excerpt from Lessig's Future of Ideas.
I'm now editing the left-edge links on Scripting News in OPML.
Yesterday I added a new page to the DaveNet site called 2002. I looked at the list of years. 1994. 1995. 1996. 1997. 1998. 1999. 2000. 2001, 2002. In two years it will be the tenth anniversary of DaveNet. Where did the time go?
True father-son communication
A friend with a one-year-old son writes: "A few days ago I was playing with Larry. We were both sitting on the floor. I let a big fart loose. He looked at me thoughtfully and then squeezed out a little fart in response. I was in heaven."
