It's hard to imagine it getting much worse than this.
Rick Heller's scoop on George Steinbrenner's contribution to kill the Howard Dean candidacy in Iowa made it to Judy Woodruff and onto CNN. Candy Crowley on hearing the connection said "Wow," and John Mercurio said "I don't think Howard Dean is going to be a season ticket holder for the Yankees."
David Weinberger on echo chambers.

Four years ago today, an essay on how to win the Presidency on the Internet. McCain had just won Michigan even though Bush was the presumed nominee. In hindsight, we would have had a much more meaningful election had the Republicans nominated McCain. He had a kind of integrity that neither Bush or Gore do. BTW, I just heard a Gore aide accuse Nader of lying. Reminds me why I hated Gore as I voted for him. He stood for absolutely nothing. The perfect television candidate. Might as well vote for Bugs Bunny.
Joshua Marshall says Bush campaign manager Marc Racicot lied on NPR this morning about whether Bush volunteered for Vietnam. I heard the interview too. Marshall asked who's going to call them on this. Answer: we are.
Slate: Forget Nader. Draft Moore. "Moore refused to remove his famous monument to the Ten Commandments from his courtroom."
Andrew Grumet: "If you use AOLserver, give it a hug today."

What's wrong with April 17? Could we schedule BloggerCon for that date, to avoid being one day before Easter and in the middle of Passover? The quickest way to find out is to ask everyone to look at their calendars. (Mike Walsh says April 19 is the Boston Marathon, meaning hotel rooms will be hard to get that weekend.)
Dare Obasanjo: "After we got back on the train from the winery tour the unexpected happened."
An important Lessig post on certifying non-control. "For most of the history of copyright law in the US, there were a million ways to forfeit your copyright. Today, itís not even clear that it is possible."
Dowbrigade had dinner with Julio in Columbia in 1975.
Mike Walsh: "The only drawback on this device is that it's so small and light I just know it will wind up in the washing machine one of these days."
A measure of how ineffective the interop work in SOAP was. "We have 3 dozen beta testers testing a new set of SOAP-based APIs and exactly one has made a successful call after 5 weeks." That's failure.
