Bootleg RSS: TV Edition. Wowowow!
Okay Matt, here goes: Kerry 51%, Bush 46%, Nader 3%.
Tenth anniversary Morning Coffee Notes. A new innovation, a ratio that tells how hated a tech leader is, and suggests how both Google and Microsoft can be as loved as Apple; and George Bush's equivalent of "it depends on what is is, means." Maybe we can start to value integrity in our political leaders? We'll find out on November 2.
Tod Maffin's CBC report on Podcasting.
Yesterday I did a MCN but there was a glitch. The beginning was quite good, so I thought, so here it is. Dedicated to Bruce Springsteen, Huey Lewis and Jonathan Schwartz. It ends quite abruptly. Sorry!

Why you should give money to support BloggerCon III.
Adam Curry is the first donor, with his customary $1000. Thanks!
Britt Blaser, who was at the first BloggerCon, just donated $100 for the third. Very cool. Thanks Britt!
David Czarnecki donated $100. He says: "I don't make money off of blojsom or blogging, but I'm happy to support BloggerCon. Best of luck with the conference. Sorry I'll miss it this year." Thanks David!
BTW, please send an email if it's okay to thank you publicly on Scripting News, and let me know what link I should use for your name. I will mention the amount you gave unless you tell me not to. And thanks to everyone who is giving so generously. I think this might just work.
Jay Rosen will lead a discussion about blogging in academia.
And Julie Leung will lead the emotional life of weblogs.
The schedule is filling out nicely. I put the Academia session (above) in the first time slot, and moved the Newbies session into that time as well. This will allow us to increase the number of people who can participate.
Ten years ago today I sent an email to the software industry, about a Marc Canter product rollout. That was followed by a series of emails, many hundred of them, most written by me, but some written by others. In 1997, the email flow spawned what I called a news site which eventually became known as a weblog, and then shortened to blog. That first email, as sloppy and weird as it was, pointed in the direction of free publishing for the people. If I could do it, so could you. In hindsight, it seems so obvious, but nothing really is until it exists. It was a bootstrap then, even more raw than the podcasts of today. But it led to many coooool things, and hopefully many more! Thanks to everyone for the support and encouragement, and most important, thanks for doing your own blogs, that was always the goal, Billions of Websites, a chain of cooperation, working together in cyberspace, exploring with our minds and bodies. Here's a toast to another decade of fun, risks and learning. Namaste y'all!
