Happy Day. We got the green light on BloggerCon this aft. In the fall, on the Law School campus. Style, scholarship, blogs, Harvard, Uncle Davey. Still diggin!

I am not a lawyer, and I'm not a doctor either, but I learned about infections and hospitals when my Dad was sick late last year. Hospitals are infected places. They often move patients from nursing homes to hospitals at the first sign of infection. So it's unusual for a hospital to close because of an infection. That tells us something about SARS. It's serious.
Griffin: FM for iPod.
Paolo concurs with my conclusion about aggregators that work like Usenet readers or mail apps. "This is why after trying other aggregators I came back to Radio: it's just like reading a very large weblog updated by several people every hour." Exactly so. And Scoble assures us that after May 12 Microsoft will test their RSS feeds with Radio. Thanks!
Adam Curry on Google's invisible RSS strategy.
Karlin Lillington reports that William Gibson is ending his weblog.
I bought lots of new hardware yesterday. A flat-panel screen, an IBM keyboard, a new mouse. I now have two screens, one for writing, one for data (an aid in debugging). I love this setup. I'm back to work on Trackback. Last night was productive. Today I plan to install some new code on the Berkman server for a demo tonight.
Trackback news and essays
I've got 1/2 of Trackback working in Manila. Bing bing bing.
Okay, now that I've implemented 1/2 of Trackback (and I will implement the other half) may I ask "What is it for?" I suppose I'll get flamed for that. But it's a serious question. Help me. I have to explain it in 73 minutes.
Mena and Ben Trott: "TrackBack was designed to provide a method of notification between websites."
