NY Times: What if It's All Been a Big Fat Lie? A must-read article for people controlling their weight or cholesterol through diet. The advice doctors have been giving since the 70s may have been totally wrong.  

Steven Levy: Labels to Net Radio: Die Now

Another NY Times piece worth pointing to. If you're shocked by scandals, consider this question from Daniel Akst. "Did investors just a short time ago not fight for the opportunity to throw their money at companies with no plausible business plans except to do something anything on the Internet? Exactly what part of this is shocking? And to whom?" What's coming to light now is that not only did the stupid little startups lie wildly about their businesses, but bigger ones like WorldCom and Enron did it too. Why is everyone so shocked? It was documented. And hardly without precedent. It's been going on for centuries. Businesses lie to inflate their stock prices. So what else is new?? 

Thanks to Rogers to the pointer to Brent's tip sheet for Frontier/Radio users.  

DJ Adams is doing something innovative with Weblogs.Com and Jabber. "Rather than reproduce a blogToaster-like mechanism, I thought I'd have a go at putting together a mini-infrastructure on top of which lots of different blogToaster-like mechanisms could be built." 

On this day last year Sean McGrath posted the canonical How many XML gurus does it take to change a light bulb joke. 

On this day in 1999: "It's fun to watch the Microsoft machine rumble into position for a battle that ain't gonna happen. They post bug reports about Linux in the Wall Street Journal and PC WEEK. After a bit of hand-wringing and groveling, what does Linus's community do? They fix the damned bugs." 

Cory Cory Cory, I did not have a heart attack. I had surgery to prevent a heart attack. My heart feels happy now. I've been an exerciser most of my life. It has its benefits. Now the blood flow to my heart is solid too. Health status is basically pretty good, but I'm still healing from the surgery and will be for a few more weeks. And I'm a recovering nicotine addict. Some people say this is the wrong attitude, but sheez, that's what I am. "My name is Dave and I'm a nicotine addict."
