Howard Greenstein: "You want to put a Best-Buy and Sheryl Crow 10 Minute piece on my Tivo, fine, as long as I can delete it. Once you start taking up space I paid for, it's war."
MacWorld: Turn your LPs or Cassettes into CDs.
Press release: MSNBC Launches Weblogs. Pros-with-blogs.
The MSNBC weblogs. Eric Alterman, Chris Matthews, Michael Moran, Alan Boyle, Jan Herman. No calendars or permalinks, so they can't really network. The URLs redirect to pages on the MSNBC site, which makes it difficult to point to them or to have them participate in weblogs.com (we had the same problem with Fortune's weblog, btw). Are those page numbers permanent or will they change? I wonder how they write these weblogs. Is that really Chris Matthews writing? How many levels of editing does it go through. Curious about the process. Do posts flow through email to an editorial person, or do they have a browser-based editing tool for the authors. Looks like they use a home-brewed CMS. I often forget that the MS in MSNBC stands for Microsoft. The press release was issued from Redmond. I guess weblogs are in the air there too.
Ed Bilodeau confirms that the MSNBC weblogs do not have archives. They won't get many pointers from other weblogs.
Real-time weblogs: "Professional journalists are learning about and adopting the new technology."
Paul Boutin: "The open-source programmers and testers behind Mozilla are happy."
Paul, Matt and Meg: Publishing Online with Weblogs.
Keith Devens did an RSS Auto-Discovery script in PHP. Aaron Cope did one for Perl.
East Broadway Ron takes us to Nathan's for hot dogs. "Went to Coney Island this afternoon for my pre-summer hot dogs. I like Nathan's dogs, but only at Nathan's. I do not think they travel well, they must be eaten within on block of the Nathan's mothership." Amen.
Masukomi writes to say that Zoe is going open source.
On this day two years ago I learned that one of my heroes had died. I still think about him all the time. Just the other day, in the dumps, I listened to one of his talks, and was reminded that it's all happening now, there is no past, there is no future. Now is very scary. But fear is frozen fun, as some wise person once said.
New links for Radio
Radio: Links for Blogroll, RSS and Subscriptions.
Good morning. We just released three new parts for Radio to enable the new radio.macros.headLinks macro that adds links to the head of each HTML page for RSS feeds, blogrolls and subscriptions. This is the completion of the content-side of the support for the new futuristic crawlers, harvesters and directories that we dreamed about over the weekend. There is a corner-turn in there, a change in the format for the RSS link. Oy. Anyway, glad that's over. These things are often a lot more work than they appear to be at first.
