NY Times: "Is a blog still a blog if someone else edits it?"
Don Park: "Reading Dave Winer's blog these days is like watching a house being built from the inside." Heh.
Round-trip air fare is $399 from SFO to BOS with enough time to do Day 2. At prices like this, can you afford to miss the show? Dave Sifry, Don Park, Jeremy Zawodny, you won't be sorry. Coming from Seattle? It's even cheaper! Brent Simmons and Robert Scoble, we'd just love to see your smiling faces on Day 2. You know you gotta do it.
Some time in the next 24 hours I expect we'll have yet another BloggerCon announcement. This show has turned into a venue. Lovin it.
Interesting question, a Web question. I'm hearing from my uncle's friends. There was a party for him in Negril on Thursday. There will be pictures, for sure. My mother, his sister, just wrote a story of her trip to Negril with my brother. Sounds like there's going to be a party in Crescent Beach at Ken's old house (it's still there, it turns out) on Oct 11. In other words, there's a flow of news about him, the story isn't over yet. He has a Manila site. I don't think I want to change the home page. I think I want to leave it as he left it. It's a little part of his body that's still alive. If we change it, I reason, it won't be his any more. Maybe that's silly. Should I create a weblog on his site, but keep the home page undisturbed? Hmm. A bit of a puzzle. Give it some thought, don't send email, just think, I'll ask again in a few days, maybe we'll figure this one out. There's certainly plenty of time to decide.
I've started to work on the draft press release announcing the program for BloggerCon. I was looking for the verb. What do bloggers do when they convene? I decided the correct term is flock. The bloggers will flock. It's a nice blog-like word. Flock flock flock flock flock. I like it.
I added the three-part interview with Cluetrain author David Weinberger to the special Lydon RSS feed. He takes us back to the foundation of the Web, the link; it's the idea and the philosophy that all our work builds on.
Here's what it looks like when an enthusiastic supporter of a presidential candidate withdraws. It's not a pretty sight.
RSS News Ticker looks interesting. Windows.
Michael Feldman, the designated teacher of BloggerCon, tackles the What Is A Weblog question.
5/23/03: "At Berkman we're studying weblogs, how they're used, and what they are. Rather than saying 'I know it when I see it' I wanted to list all the known features of weblog software, but more important, get to the heart of what a weblog is, and how a weblog is different from a Wiki, or a news site managed with software like Vignette or Interwoven."
