Notes for the Thursday meeting. Starts at 7PM. If you're in Cambridge, you can still make it, if you hurry.
CNN: Gregory Peck dies at 87.
NY Times: David Brinkley dies at 82.
Long rambly right on review of Trackback.
It's a long story, but for the next few days I'll only have net connectivity at the office, so updates and responses to email will be sporadic.
It's going to be time, soon, to start leaking news of confirmed speakers for BloggerCon, October 4, Harvard Law School.
One of the ideas I'm toying with for BloggerCon is having a news room, with say 15 networked desktop computers, tables and chairs pretty close together, kind of like the computer room at the O'Reilly Open Source Convention, if you've ever seen that. There can be an incredible energy in such a room, esp at a conference about weblogs. I remember having a great time at an O'Reilly conf one year, I imagine it's how "real" newsrooms feel.
Speaking of which, it looks like I could attend the O'Reilly conf. The Sells Brothers conf, which I'm keynoting, begins the day before the O'Reilly conf ends, in the same city. How about that. Is Nathan Torkington tuned in? Want to try Blogging Without The Screen this year?
InfoWorld announced today that they're starting to run ads in their RSS feeds. They asked my opinion before-hand, and I said I thought it was not a good idea, but of course they're free to do it, and of course we're free to unsubscribe.
Oracle technology news now has an RSS feed.
It was my pleasure to meet Martin Roell at the Jupiter conference, whose weblog was introduced to me as the most popular German blog.
Boston Globe: Schools may post assignments on Web.
ComputerWorld: C&W to exit US, slash jobs. This site is hosted at Exodus, a unit of C&W, in the US.
