Scripting News, the weblog started in 1997 that bootstrapped the blogging revolution.

My vacation is over. From now until the 18th I'm mainly focused on BloggerCon. Tomorrow and Tuesday I'll be in NY meeting with three of the discussion leaders (also going on a job interview, how about that). We're going to have a dutch treat dinner on Friday night at the Durgin Park. There should be a way to sign up for that later today or tomorrow morning. Lunch on Saturday is extended to 1.5 hours so people have time to wash their hands and do a little schmoozing. Last year the one hour lunch break proved too short by about 15 minutes. There will be a party on Saturday night, Adam and I are splitting the expense. Which brings me to the subject of money. We've priced the conference very reasonably (it's free) but we do need some more money, not much, to buy food for the party and to fly in some people who have important contributions to make, but don't have the money to travel. If you can afford to kick in $50 or even $500 that would be great. Let me know, and if there are enough people who want to participate we'll come up with an easy way to do it. However, I need to be very clear that this is not in any way a money-making enterprise for me, Berkman Center, or Harvard Law School, or anyone else. We'll spend all the money we get on the conference itself, and if there's any left over, we'll give it back with thanks to the people who contribute. We're also looking for volunteers to help welcome people, and monitor sessions and webcasts. Jay McCarthy will post something about that shortly. Many thanks to Bob Doyle, for his help with the video webcast and for providing the projectors for each of the rooms. Bob's generosity and friendship are truly appreciated.  Permanent link to this item in the archive.

Good morning. Spring forward fall back. Gotta love it. These days computers do it all on their own. My wrist watch still needs adjusting. The clock in the kitchen that I never turned back in the fall, all of a sudden is correct again. Ahhh life is good.  Permanent link to this item in the archive.
