Chris Lydon interviews Jeff Jarvis of Advance Publications.
Michael Feldman: "Among certain Amazonian tribes of my acquaintance Glenn and Eugene would be more likely to wind up on the menu than on the guest list."
AP reports that Clark's campaign manager has quit. "Donnie Fowler told associates he was leaving over widespread concerns that supporters who used the Internet to draft Clark into the race are not being taken seriously by top campaign advisers. Fowler also complained that the campaign's message and methods are focused too much on Washington, not key states and the burgeoning power of the Internet, said two associates who spoke on condition of anonymity."
Thanks for the BloggerCon!

Ed Cone: "Weblogs bring Second Amendment logic to the First Amendment."
Jim Moore: "Without Andrew’s attacks, I’m pretty much an obscure researcher at Harvard Law School."
Jesse Berney at the DNC reviews the new Bush blog.
BTW, the Democrat's RSS is not a mess.
Rogers Cadenhead sent an email asking how I would vote if I were in California today. Good question. I'd vote against the recall and for Bustamente. Here's why. California needs better government, but this isn't the way to get it. And Schwarzenegger is the wrong guy and hasn't explained in anything but superficial terms how he would govern. Let's hope another referendum comes up where voters can express displeasure with the government in more constructive ways.
Paolo and team have localized Radio to German.
Candidate George Bush has a weblog.
The Bush RSS feeds are a total mess. At the Day 2 community session Joi Ito said the usual, "we work together well in the weblog community." It's not true. We work terribly together. I wish someone would explain to me why a user like the President of the United States has to have such a jumble of formats. Does anyone else care how hard it's going to be to move this mess forward? (Impossible, actually.) I've really tried to get people to play together. Didn't happen. At least we can be truthful about our failures, as it gets too late to fix them. I'm afraid, at the technology level, it's business as usual, and not much win-win. Our shame. Blogger, Movable Type, I'll take my share too. Maybe we can have a grown up conversation about this some time, and try to make the best of a very bad situation.
The recent interviews, Curry, Rosen, Apcar and Jarvis are in the special RSS feed with enclosures.
Nine years ago on this day I wrote my first DaveNet essay. This was the first of a rapid string of epiphanies that led to this one: I can publish my own ideas. I don't have to wait for anyone else to get it.
A list of anniversary essays.
Phillip Pearson on high-performance XML-RPC in C. Up to 1000 messages per second. This is super-important. A fast implementation of xmlStorageSystem could really scale.
One of the things I miss most about living on the West Coast is the ability to call people on the East Coast at 5AM.
