100 days no smoking Dave. Ta-dahh!
Dan Gillmor: Valenti presents Hollywood's side of the technology story.
Tara Sue got Slashdotted yesterday. I could see the secondary effects, I was linked to from the article that they linked to. They are still the flow machine. Good for Tara Sue. Coble got Slashdotted too. And the link to his bio is still broken.
What incentivizes Xian? Orgasms, praise and money. Sounds about right to me.
My next project, Murphy-willing, is to finish the Weblog Outliner tool. It lets you use Radio as an outliner to write for Blogger, Movable Type, Manila and/or Radio, or all at once. Screen shot. I had almost completed the project in June and then Murphy put me in the hospital. That's why I always say "Murphy-willing" and remember His first commandment. Anything that can go wrong will go wrong. Second commandment. It's even worse than it appears.
Next problem. I have two free days in Colorado after the Digital Identity conference. Looking for a place to go with scenic beauty, hot tub, fall colors, nice accomodations, not too far from Denver, maybe near a river or a lake but probably near a ski area. Where is that great place for rest really nearby Denver??
Howard Greenstein and son pay a visit to the baseball team that's steeped in deep philosophy, the NY Mets.
10/21/00: "We all must know that the world will go on even if the team we love loses. That's the Mets philosophy, we're steeped in love that's not conditional on defeating the other guys. The Mets in the early 1960s were very futuristic in that way."
Adam Curry: "Ever since the Osbournes' mega-success in the states (now world-wide) we'd been receiving offers to do a similar show in Europe."
Ed Cone: "And how was the food?"
It's interesting to watch Phillip Pearson, a Python programmer, learn how to program in Radio. The two languages are quite close.
An email from a reader who is offended. Maybe you should just stop reading my site. Or maybe being offended isn't such a bad thing. God knows I find your complaint offensive. What would you be willing to do about that?
What's next for Dave?
I've given a lot of thought lately to the question of whether I will return to UserLand full-time at some point in the future. I still don't have a final decision, but I'm leaning towards not going back. It's a tough job even for people with strong bodies, and that's not me, now, and maybe not for quite some time. I haven't been involved in the company since mid-June and it seems to be doing fine. I'd like to try some different things out, perhaps teaching, maybe I'll write a book, travel, spend some time pondering what's next. I'm still not sure what I'll do, but like I said, I'm doing a lot of thinking about this.
