At a meeting on radio and the Web at Berkman. Not exactly sure where we're going. I'm sitting next to Roger Kennedy, former White House correspondent for NBC. Lots of really interesting people around the table. Bob Doyle is on my right, with a fantastic new Sony Vaio TR3A notebook. Bill Buzenberg from Minnesota Public Radio speaks. They want to do a national news show cross the country with the Web at the center of it. "It isn't just Talk of the Nation." Chris Lydon is speaking, then we got into a chaotic discussion, the best kind. John Palfrey is blogging this too.
Jay McCarthy update on the big fire.
John Kerry has a new campaign plane.

Scoble, who works at Microsoft, says that internal weblogs are boring. Now there's something I didn't know. We did group outlining at UserLand behind the firewall, and that worked great when we had a project that required a lot of collaboration, but I've never done a private weblog (or if I did I don't remember it).
In comments on Scoble's site, Firas explains why so many programmers are troubled by the XML icon (and probably a lot of other things about RSS). "They hate being told to use it." I know how that feels, I felt the same way about the Macintosh user interface guidelines, but then gave in. That made users happy, because while programmers hate being told what to do, users love consistency among apps. If you don't believe me, ask a user. (These days apps are websites.)
Adam did his first Live-From-Las-Vegas radio show. Since it was live, they had to do it between 9PM and midnight Pacific time, to catch the morning rush in Amsterdam.
