Sorry for the lack of posts today, been in various hardware hells trying to get all kinds of new stuff working, and then there's the Thursday evening meeting in a few hours.
Doc Searls got a link from the NY Times today. Nice article. Says a hit from Doc delivers lots of flow. It's true. So I wondered how many hits the Times delivered to Doc. About 67 as of this writing. Not as many as Doc.
Lance Knobel: "Twenty years ago, when I used to write about architecture and design, I recall someone criticising a chair that had been designed by a Danish duo. 'No one person could come up with something so awful. There had to be at least two of them.'"
Chris Sells: "Win a free seat at the Applied XML Developer's Conference in greater Portland, OR, July 10-11."

Verizon already sucks
I've been a Verizon customer for less than three hours and they have already hacked my system.
My browser now says "Microsoft Internet Explorer provided by Verizon Online." Funny it didn't used to say that.
My email accounts were all hacked, so now my client checks with their server, not my server.
My home page is on verizon.net.
I called up their support number (I had to, it took three long calls to get the DSL service working) and asked where they thought they got the right to do this. Read the service agreement, the support guy said.
What about the personal information they ask for (gender, age, occupation). He said "You don't have to tell the truth." You're telling me to lie? He said he didn't say that.
Of course I lied. I'm a female government employee born on this day in 1980.
