2/14/97: "So have a happy Valentine's Day, all you lovers out there in InternetLand!"
Mike Wendland: "I have spent my professional life gathering news and writing and reporting for newspapers, radio and television. These awesome tools and this whole blogging subculture they have created make everybody a reporter. After 30 years in the news business, I have never been more excited to be a journalist."
I listened to the UN report by the inspectors, and reps from all sides, including Iraq. I think the UK and US make good points that the French, Russian and Chinese didn't address. Do I think Hussein is serious about disarming? Come on, give me a break. I wonder what the French think will happen in the next few months that didn't happen in the last twelve years? Iraq tries to get away with whatever it thinks it can get away with. If you're okay with them having the bombs, missiles, biological weapons and gases, why not just say so, because that's what going soft implies. I'm still not sure it's best for the US to invade Iraq, but I don't buy the arguments our supposed allies are providing against going to war.
We started the day with 9 Harvard weblogs in the directory, and we finish the day, largely thanks to Denise Howell, with 21. I've started to note, in parens, what part of Harvard they're from and whether it's staff, faculty, alumnus, or fellow. Eventually we'll break it down into sub-categories, and this classification will help.
Spidie: "Still no chemo."
Redhead in Cambridge seeks fast mover.
Brent Simmons: "Parsing RSS is like walking across a field of broken glass."
This is fascinating. I wonder what it is?
One of the houses I looked at in Cambridge comes with a T3 line. You gotta know I'd run a server or two behind that kind of pipe.
Aaron Swartz thoughtfully responds to the claims made yesterday about Google's privacy issues.
Jon Udell: The Human Face of Microsoft.
Our favorite nude designer, Gnome-Girl, is in the running for best Nudity-in-Design. I voted for her. Disclaimer: I haven't actually seen her naked, yet.
Paolo: "Good people, good tools, good communication. Welcome to the real world." Amen!
Jeremy Blachman, Garrett Moritz and Nathan Oman are Harvard law students with weblogs. Thanks to Denise Howell for the pointers.
The Harvard Law School Federalist Society has a weblog.
The Unofficial West Wing Continuity Guide. Very interesting.
Wow, something changed, and now Jim Romanesko's Media News is either pinging Weblogs.Com, or letting my poller-helper app through when it checks. Not sure which, but now his site is showing up in the list of recently updated weblogs, and I couldn't be happier. Before, Media News was not in my rotation because it wasn't present on Weblogs.Com. Thanks to whoever made this change.
News.Com: "Analysts say it's difficult to measure the extent to which open-source Java application servers, such as Tomcat and JBoss, have eaten into the revenue of commercial providers of Java application servers. But the growing popularity of the open-source application servers is undeniable."
Wired News interviews Netscape founder Marc Andreessen. The intro incorrectly gives him credit for writing the first Web browser. That honor goes to Tim Berners-Lee.
Here's a list of all known weblogs at Harvard. If you know of others, please use the suggest-a-link feature. Today there are nine items in the list. How many will there be a year from now?
Sergeant Red Thomas tells us how to survive chemical, biological, even nuclear attacks.
