The full 9/11 report is available as a 585-page PDF.
Jason Kottke created an HTML version of the executive summary of the 9/11 report, with permalinks for each paragraph.
In development: Subscription list for authors of convention blogs.
Note to aggregator developers: I'm doing a special aggregator for these feeds. But the list is open and will be maintained, so you can use it. It's a subtly different kind of subscription list, because it will change, you should subscribe to the OPML not to the feeds contained in the OPML. It's a chance to do a little upgrade among the aggregators for the DNC. I did it this way on purpose. It's the "neat net tricks" part of the barn-raising. There should always be a developer angle, imho.
BBC: America braced for 9/11 report.
Yesterday, flying into NYC from Dallas, I saw Ground Zero for the first time, from the sky as we were heading up the Hudson River on the approach to La Guardia. The view is immense, and the signs of healing, very clear. There's new construction all around the site, and it's paved over, and the smoke is long gone, of course. Then as the view of the city unfolds, you realize how much of NY remains exactly as it was before 9/11. Yes, it's harder to get in and out of buildings in NY than in any other American city. And I'm sure everyone who was here that day, has special memories (I was in Palo Alto). But life is moving on, the human hive seems to be doing okay.
Mary Jo Foley on a leaked HP memo about Microsoft plans, two years ago, to sue open source products such as Samba and Apache out of existence for patent infringement. No guesswork is required as to Microsoft's plans, Craig Mundie, a MS vice-president, clearly and publicly said they would sue developers who infringed, in 2001. As far as I know, they've never retracted the statement.
Wired: "Critics say the bill is the biggest threat to innovation in 20 years, letting Hollywood dictate what consumer electronics companies can do."
BBC: "A report predicts that people will buy more than 10 million players this year to listen to music while on the move."
Dan Bricklin: "Bloggers are different to me. They have a name and a history." I see it the same way. Put myself in a strange situation with a laptop, WiFi, digital camera, microphone, server, aggregator and umpteen thousand weird people. My job is to find something interesting.
Jay Rosen shows he "can blog like a normal person." Lots good insight and good links. Jay's going to do audio blog posts. Good move.
ElectionPhotos04 makes it "easier for convention bloggers to do some of the things that professional journalists' companies do for them: index and archive images and retrieve them quickly for publication."
Feels like 24 Hours of Democracy. "A Celebration of Free Speech on the Internet. A Demonstration of Web Energy. And Neat Net Tricks!"
George Burns: "Too bad all the people who know how to run the country are busy driving taxi cabs or cutting hair." It's still true, to this day.
Scoop: "If you don't like the news, go out and make some of your own."
Today's song: "I know you're working for the CIA."
In a comment on a late post yesterday, Scott Fraer points to a Microsoft article that explains: "When you start Internet Information Services (IIS) 6.0 on Microsoft Windows Server 2003, IIS binds to all IP addresses on the server, not just the IP addresses that are assigned to Web sites."
This, clearly, is the problem I'm encountering.
Now I'm running Windows 2000, and IIS 5.0, but the article says, midway down the page, that it has the same problem. A cure is suggested, but I have no idea how to implement.
So if you can illuminate, how do I get Win2K to let me use all the IP addresses on my machine? Any help would be much appreciated.
Postcript: The fix that worked.
Today there's a new header graphic. It was taken out the front window of a moving car on Interstate 25 just past Santa Fe going north, in the foothills of the Sangre de Cristo mountains, in late afternoon during monsoon season. You can see the day's thunderstorm forming behind the hills.
The previous graphic was a picture of my grandfather, Rudy Kiesler, taken (probably) in the 1950s, in a small Georgia town where he had a schmatte factory. He's the good looking guy on the left. About the other guys, one is a pilot of an Eastern airlines plane, the other goyisha is a local cop, and we think the other Jew is one of my grandfather's associates. My grandfather died in 1995. Eastern Airlines went out of business in 1991.
A list of previous graphics is here.
