Wendy Seltzer explains why Madonna should be especially careful with her trademark.
A new version of Blogger is on the way. Hey they have a changes.xml. 4566 items. Impressive. Go Blogger!
New script for a Manila site, lists all the pages on the site, makes it easier for us to review a site, perhaps easier for others too. Source included.
Imagine my shock when Slashdot banned my RSS reader. "I swear officer all I did was read once too often."
Gregor Rothfuss wrote a "quick & dirty xslt" to convert an OPML file into an Apache forrest file. Not sure what that is, but it sounds interesting.
Hossein Derskhahan: "Sina Motallebi, well-known blogger and journalist was arrested this morning."
One year ago: Google Outline Browser.
Other Google applications, including four G.O.B.s.
On this day in 1998, Bob Atkinson, one of the designers of XML-RPC, reasoned that HTTP-POST "is completely and totally 100% isomorphic to a procedure call." That ought to get the REST folk agitated.
In 1999, Jakob Nielsen said we would be stuck with old browsers till 2003. Back then that seemed like a long time away. Today it.. uhhh, wait a minute.

Jake Savin is here in Cambridge for a couple of weeks, while we incorporate into Manila lots of what I'm learning by working with newbies here. Jake says he has a list a yard long. But more important, we're working on a process that will better incorporate lessons learned from working with users face to face. One step at a time. Today I'm reviewing how membership works in Manila and will make some changes in my server, and make some recommendations for the base product.
Interesting to watch Robert Scoble turn his jets on Microsoft, his new employer, as of May 12. Yes, it would be great to have Microsoft embrace OPML. But sell softly. And review the canons of conduct of the Linux Advocacy Mini-Howto. OPML is not a standard, it's format. On good days a popular one. By implementing OPML in OneNote they would gain compatibility with network applications that generate and consume OPML, and of course encourage more applications, for which we would be grateful.
