New Radio 8 feature. Now you can post to categories without posting to the home page. If you have categories enabled, there's a new checkbox, the first one, called Home Page (it effectively becomes a category). By default it's checked. Now you can easily publish multiple weblogs, going to lots of different locations, from one edit box. Screen shot.
Yesterday I read on one of the blogs about a feature of Google. On a random basis it returns pages with redirects for links. Most of the time they don't do redirects, just once in a while, so they can add data to their ranking database. So as an experiment we programmed Weblogs.Com that way. Approx once an hour, at a random time, it generates a page of redirected links, and tallies up the click-throughs. I have no idea if it will generate useful data, if it does we'll publish it.
Thanks to Masukomi for the tricky puzzle.
One more time. How to tell if your ass is too small.
Adam gets a radio show. And guess what, we're going to integrate his show with our Radio show. This is so cool. The Netherlands is leading the way. They're going to participate in one of the most interesting connections between broadcast radio and the Web.

John Robb: "Many, if not all companies have knowledge workers. Some, are composed entirely of knowledge workers. These people are domain experts. They keep up to-date (or should) with the evolution of knowledge within their chosen domain. They have thinking skills that have been developed to process data within that domain. Everything they think about within the envelope of that domain has value. Unfortunately, most companies don't capture, package, and distribute that insight. "

AP: "A former Enron Corp. executive who challenged the company's questionable financial practices and resigned last May was found shot to death in a car Friday, an apparent suicide, authorities said."
Zeldman: "The redirect sometimes works and sometimes times out with a meaningless ODBC Drivers error message, certain to send web users fleeing to Apple, Real, or the liquor cabinet."
Sean Gallagher: "So, with this post, I officially resurrect the dot.communist, my original weblog."

Jake's in his 30's, I'm in my 40's. I think of Jake as a kid. Last night he told me that "the kids these days" have a saying -- TMI, dude. (Too Much Information.) The kids these days are smart.
Speaking of kids, the Mac was 18 yesterday. I was at the 0th birthday party. It might have been one of the most important events of my life. Probably was. Hey Jim Roepcke's son, born yesterday, has the same birthday as the Mac. Nice. Maybe they should name him Mac?
