I'll be in San Francisco Thursday through Saturday, for a brief business trip and a visit with a couple of friends. This time I'll be staying in the city. I'll have a car. Maybe a Chinese dinner at Henry's Hunan on Saturday, August 30? Chris, you want to co-host? (Just my luck he'll be in LA.) My email is still not working very well, although Eudora is much better at handling errors than Outlook Express. I may actually be able to start communicating via email again soon. Also I got an incredible fare via hotwire.com, including car and hotel, on American Airlines and Budget car rental. Total price including four nights at a first class hotel, $915. Amazing. I had checked out American Airlines first, and the round trip alone was $2300.
Chris Lydon has three audio excerpts from the Howard Dean presentation on Wednesday night in Manchester. I've included each of the audio excerpts below as enclosures, in today's Scripting News RSS feed. Enclosure-aware aggregators will automatically download them so you don't have to wait for them to download.
1. Dean's 24-minute talk, in its entirety.
2. Q&A with the candidate.
3. Chris's "open ended sampling" of the crowd.
I've started a list of aggregators that understand RSS enclosures. Right now I only know of two, but I hope that changes soon. Enclosures are, imho, a really big part of where RSS will go.
Phil Wolff's "plant requirements" for BloggerCon, in response to Bob Doyle's message that the Pound Hall rooms don't have WiFi. They will, one way or another. I hope Wendy and Robyn can see this, because (per the post below) my email is totally broken.
Email is still broken. I'm trying Eudora, it seems to work a little better than Outlook Express, but of course it's totally strange and all my filters are gone. It doesn't work better enough to use it instead of Outlook. The solution may be switching to Fastmail. In the meantime I'm missing boatloads of email. Thanks for all the great tips in the comments on last night's message. If you're trying to dig out of the quagmire, you may find some good advice here.
Adam Curry: "This is where we get to sneak RSS into the email jet-wash." The only people I can communicate with are people who send and receive over RSS. Adam will probably see my comment on his post in about 40 minutes or so in his aggregator.
Adam reports that the spam-free test worked. Bing. We communicated without seeing a single spam or virus-generated email. Just like the good old days, before email melted and evaporated.
