Ed Cone: "Senator John Edwards has responded to some questions submitted to his office by EdCone.com. Here’s what he has to say in a weblog-exclusive email interview."
Jonathan Zittrain: The Copyright Cage. "Bars can't have TVs bigger than 55 inches. Teddy bears can't include tape decks. Girl Scouts who sing Puff, the Magic Dragon owe royalties."
Jon Udell on relative links in RSS feeds with comments from Brent Simmons and Sam Ruby.
Wes Felter: "One thing you can do with a news aggregator is watch things propagate through the blogosphere."
Tom Daschle: "My driving tour began with a visit to the Community Health Center in Rapid City."
Daschle talks about health care and insurance. This is much on my mind these days. I just signed up for Harvard's health plan yesterday. It's much cheaper than the COBRA plan I was on (it expires next month). Also, I've gotten lots of email after yesterday's News.Com piece, all of it sympathetic. Thanks. I guess most people didn't know how vicious the bashing had gotten. It's pretty bad and it's been going on for years. Yesterday the bad stuff was exposed in a way that lots of good people could see.
Dan Gillmor: "I'm spending several days at the Vermont headquarters of the Howard Dean presidential campaign, studying a breakthrough in American politics."
Okay, if you don't like to think about porn, avert your eyes. There's going to be a big for-pay business around sex movies delivered via RSS, using enclosures and Adam Curry's brilliant idea for time-shifted downloads. The algorithm is implemented in Radio, and probably no other aggregator, at this time. Instead of grainy little postage-stamp-size Quicktimes that take forever to download, you'll get full-screen digital movies and no click-wait. There's real money to be made here.
Still thinking about Art Interludes at BloggerCon. Looking for the intersection between art, weblogs and a face-to-face conference. How can we bring art into BC?
Glenn Fleishman: "The future has finally arrived with Hydra from The Coding Monkeys in Germany."
Howl is Rendezvous for Windows and Linux.
Paolo: "What I would like next? A renderer for Radio which replicates the easy to use 'wiki punctuation' that many wiki apps use."
Doc Searls: "Dean is totally upstaging all the other Democrats by picking fund-raising fights with the Bush campaign. And the press is eating it up."
NY Times: "Lieberman warned that nominating Howard Dean as the Democrat to face President Bush in 2004 would be 'a ticket to nowhere.'"
Essay: Pointers are cheap.
