Guest DaveNet: The Big Lie, by Adam Curry.
Lance Knobel: "This is idiosyncratic, reactionary politics."
And Lance's pushback begets more.
Pros-with-blogs: Katherine Derbyshire, Ed Cone, Jules Allen.
Press release: "Adobe was found to infringe all three Macromedia patents."
Must-read News.Com piece on MS's Web services strategy.
What's going on in these windows?
Or put another way. What if your browser had a built-in Web server, content management system, and outliner.
Matt Drudge: "More than a week before the movie's release, unauthorized copies of the next Star Wars episode have hit the Internet!"
Eugene Volokh: Cheap Speech and What it Will Do.
Denise Howell: Law Meets Blog.
Jack Schofield: "The Internet replaces the us-and-them relationship (creative people broadcasting to couch potatoes) with a network of conversations, which is all markets are."
Scott Rosenberg on weblogs. His initial premise that there isn't an editorial process for weblogs is incorrect. Yesterday's Scripting News was a collaboration with Ben Hammersley. And today's was a collaboration with Adam Curry. There are so few general statements you can make about weblogs. Basically it's a new technology for public writing. It does yield to a process, if you want it to. However the process may not be one that a professional writer is comfortable with. But the Web was never about comfort, imho.
Fast Company has an insightful blogging article, but how about pointing to Radio and not just Blogger.
Steve Pilgrim: "Regardless of religious background or persuasion, people need a plan, a place and a purpose. More often than not those are found in some area of service. I find that the periods in my life where I have not been serving others are the most miserable periods I've faced."
Progress on tcp.im
I had separate phone talks today with Eric Soroos and Jeremy Bowers about the instant messaging framework for Radio and Frontier. Eric has been working on a module for AIM, and Jeremy on an implementation of Jabber. I spent a couple of days this week building a shell that theoretically either IM protocol could be connected to. Working with Eric and Jeremy over the next few days I hope to get this toolkit in shape to adapt the Instant Outliner to use it. Eric is working on a way to post to a weblog through IM using the Blogger API. Between the three of us there are lots of ideas for chatbots.
