Session description: Visions from Users.
RSS version history. After reading this well-intentioned history at Microsoft, I wanted to get an accurate timeline on the Web so people could find it when they search. I imagine some people will want to debate this, but I don't. I've included pointers that substantiate this timeline. If you click on the links, and think about the dates, you'll see the sequence is in order, and the notes about the formats are accurate.
Skrenta: "Google has built their own distributed, fault-tolerant, petabyte filesystem, the Google Filesystem."
Nick Wetegrove: "Amid all the outcries of the horror privacy violations Google is committing, I have a starkly different opinion."
What is Windows XP Media Center? Apparently it's a TiVO-like box, that runs Windows XP apps, that you can access over your LAN, without hacking. In other words, it's a software platform.

One for the wish-list, if the Internet Archive RSS feed used enclosures my aggregator would automatically download the audio. They've been collecting quite an archive of Grateful Dead concerts. Huge files. A perfect application for enclosures.
Jeremy Zawodny: "I have a sick mind."
Blogging a meeting at Berkman with Rebecca MacKinnon, Ethan Zuckerman, Colin Maclay, David Weinberger. New meme: Blog Jay. Like a DJ but for blogs. Ethan Z says Turkmenistan is going to hell. Rebecca found a German couple working out of the German embassy in Pyongyang, sending emails and having them posted to a weblog. A friend of Ethan's is blogging from Zimbabwe. Ethan just told us about the African Oil Politics weblog, whose author is coming to the conference.
Jay Rosen's notes opening a fantastic discussion for the BloggerCon What Is Journalism? session. I've posted a bunch of comments in the thread that Jay started on his weblog.
A proposed answer to the core question: What is Journalism?

Jay McCarthy: "We are looking for volunteers for BloggerCon."
Political Wire: Kerry sees McCain as perfect running mate.
Tom Mangan: "I think it's entirely possible that bloggers could produce Pulitzer-quality work."
