BloggerCon for Newbies. "No panels, no PowerPoints, no speakers."
The Bush spinners wonder why Richard Clarke waited till now to publish his book. Interesting timing, they say, right in the middle of an election. Anyway Clarke was asked that question on The News Hour today, and he said the White House put a security hold on the book for several months, otherwise it would have come out sooner. He also said he wouldn't serve in a Kerry administration, which takes care of another objection. Anyway, we now have triangulation, between Paul O'Neill and Richard Clarke, there are two ex-Bush insiders with consistent stories on the nature of the Bush organization. One or two more and even the staunchest Bush supporters are going to wonder if we wouldn't be better off with Kerry.

I want to do some C programming on Windows.
To Mr Coates at Plastic Bag, yes, UserLand plays very fair and open. Why do you think there are so many aggregators, feeds and blogging tools. We invented XML-RPC and SOAP so that anyone could plug into our services no matter what platform their code is running on. I've never filed for a patent. I can't speak for UserLand, I haven't worked there for almost two years. I am a fellow at Berkman Center. Not sure what I'm going to do next term. If you have any great ideas, let me know, I'm kind of nervous about that.

What do you think of the new Scripting News header graphic?
5/11/03: Glue for Technorati API.
Wolverhampton Grammar School publishes a RSS feed.
I gave my annual $120 to the local NPR station, but I still want to know how they spend the money. And they still lie during the pledge drive. All my money goes for the news? A more accurate statement would be all the money that doesn't pay for executives and other overhead. And I wish they'd come up with a new way to distribute the content so I can download MP3s into my portable player and skip the pledge drive because I always pay and I don't need to hear how great they are (I find it offensive).
1/20/03: The "You Know Me" Button.
7/14/01: Distributed membership and preferences.
9/19/99: Prefs Distribution thru XML-RPC.
Congrats to Technorati on shipping their beta.
Can you still hate your enemy when she has a voice. "I want the Fifth Amendment right not to testify against Sarah, and to protect our private correspondence from subpoena, the same as other spouses."
Adam Curry says he says he disagrees with me about Iraq, but I'm not entirely sure we do. $100+ billion can go a long way to making people happy, even if some of their friends and relatives are dead, injured or homeless, and their country is occupied. We're spending money we don't have. At some point our creditors will tell us we've been living too rich and that Iraq is something we can't afford. I'd be surprised if they like us very much after we leave.
