DaveNet: Chapter 5 in which Dave goes to Harvard.
Ooops. Reading Jim Roepcke's weblog, I just realized that Apple crushed a couple of small developers by shipping their own Web browser. I fell into the same trap so many other people do -- thinking only of Microsoft. Users may not worry, but they should. It's in their interest to have small innovative developers trying out new ideas. No matter how they spin it, it's bad news for a developer when Apple bundles a competitor to your product.
David Weinberger: The Problem with Metadata.
Kevin Werbach: "With the announcement this week of Microsoft's SPOT devices and Apples 802.11g/Bluetooth laptop, the battle is joined. But where is the technical community?"
A new mail list for the MetaWeblog API
I removed the caveat from metaWeblog.newMediaObject, freezing the entry-point, and permitting deployment. I still owe you an RFC for using namespaces in structs in the MetaWeblog API.
Dan Bricklin: SMBmeta Introduction.
News.Com: FM gets strong reception at CES.
Dan Gillmor's spin on the Two-Way-Web: "Many journalists have yet to discover: in an emerging era of multidirectional, digital communications, the audience can be an integral part of the process." I'm a bit more radical. The idea of "audience" is obsolete. The new medium is read-write. Low-low barrier to entry.
Jon Udell: "Ultimately, it's not about RSS any more than it was about NNTP. It's about the evolution of our species toward shared consciousness."
Hamburger Blogger Dinner in SF on Saturday nite. Scoble, Pirillo and me. And Tara Sue? Could be.
Last year on this day: "If you knew you were going to be stranded on a deserted island and could only take one website with you, which would it be?"
Three years ago: "That's AOL Folks!"
Halley: "Dave, the Boston bloggers will miss you today at lunch, but we now reserve an honorary chair for you at all Boston blogging events." Nice!
People are really excited about the Harvard thing. That is so cool. Me too. I woke up in the middle of the night, my head buzzing with ideas. Can we do this? How about that? Etc etc. I need to start a website. And a directory.
