Springtime comes to Queens and The Bronx.
Happy 41st to Don Park. "The other day, I saw a swan eat a duckling," says Don.
NY Times: "Another program under development, called 'silence,' scans a computer's hard drive for pirated music files and attempts to delete them. One of the executives briefed on the silence program said that it did not work properly and was being reworked because it was deleting legitimate music files, too."
Rogers Cadenhead looked into how RSS came to be, and concludes I'm on solid ground when I claim co-authorship.
JY Stervinou offers some CSS flamer jokes. Don't tell Mark Pilgrim I pointed to this.
I'm geeking out with Radio and Manila and pictures this afternoon. I have it uploading a folder of pictures from Radio to Manila, but it's still a little glitchy. I want to make another pass before releasing it. In progress.
I went out to breakfast at a local diner this morning and had one of those cathartic experiences. I am of New York. I clicked in conversation with everyone I came in contact with. I could say things as I naturally would say them, they didn't get offended. There's a directness to the NY dialect that's in my soul. Here is where I feel real.
Morality spokesmodel William Bennett has a bad gambling addiction, according to the Washington Monthly.
Wired: "Gary Hart is trying to muster some political clout by blogging his way into visibility."
NY Times: "Forget Iowa and New Hampshire. South Carolina has become the hot new early primary state for the Democratic Party."
Two years ago today: "Murphy is my best friend and colleague. He's with me where ever I go."
Jamie Zawinsky rants about CSS. I love the way he writes. No sarcasm. He's an engineer, like me, who has trouble making CSS work. If you know the technology, try to help him out, but do it with respect. The usual advocates are flaming him. Let's get Jamie going, turn him around if possible. The statements he made about CSS advocacy are exactly right. It is arrogant. But the arrogance doesn't have to own the technology.
Alireza explains why he's keeping a weblog about the Persian blogs. It's part of his work at Harvard's Graduate School of Education. Fascinating article because I'm looking for people who I can do formal research with. Sounds like Ali and perhaps his teacher are already doing that.
Second interesting item to report, we're starting a group weblog for all LL.M students at Harvard Law School. About 350 people will use the site. Nandan Kamath, the grad student who is leading the effort says "It will be interesting to see the interactions on Harvard's first multimember blog of this magnitude." Totally. I can't wait to see what they come up with. Our job is to help with the technology.
