Welcome to the real-time Trade Secrets debate spin-room!
7PM Pacific: No doubt, Kerry is cleaning Dubya's clock.
After tonight's debate, if the US re-elects Bush, we totally deserve whatever happens to us. Kerry will make an excellent President.
Russell Beattie: "I donated another $50 today to the DNC (and I'm unemployed) and volunteered to work a phone bank for Kerry."
Dowbrigade: "That Dowbrigade slug hasn't posted in over two weeks!"
The USGS is blogging Mt St Helens. (Sort of.)

The open source release of Frontier didn't shake the world, or boil the ocean, but it is steadily climbing the Daypop Top 40, indicating there is some interest.
Nelson Minar takes a contrary position on XML as a wire format.
I bought the new laptop. Over 7 hour battery life. Easy to carry.
Howard Dean: "Somebody has to take responsibility for being on the school board, on the city council."
Lance Knobel, in London, will be up at 2AM to watch tonight's 90-minute debate, at 7PM Eastern, 4PM Pacific. Adam Curry and I will do a live Trade Secrets, with Adam in Belgium, watching and commenting on the debate, blow by blow (we hope). Unfortunately the candidates are not allowed to talk to each other. Supposedly the cameras have to stay on the person speaking, but thankfully they say No Way.
It's great to see collaboration among people I really admire, working to make Frontier a better HTTP server. Dave Luebbert was a developer at Microsoft, for years, working on Word. He's roughly my age. Being a good developer is more than knowing how the computer works, it's also about knowing how to get the best work out of yourself and others on the team.
News.Com: IE--embraced, extended, extinct?
Rebecca MacKinnon: "The American School in Shanghai turned a bunch of North Korean asylum-seekers over to the Chinese police, who will send them back to North Korea and thus to jail/torture. The media is totally not reporting this. It would be great if the blogosphere raised a stink over the questionable actions of our fellow Americans overseas."

Mary Hodder: "This is an RSS love letter."
