Jake Ludington: Podcasting with Windows Media Player.
Washington Post reviews MSN's new music store. "...for this store to start winning market share from iTunes, Microsoft has more work to do."
Problems with PayPal today. Please hold the thought.
Murphy's Law in action. PayPal is working "furiously" to fix the problem.
They have a RSS feed for system announcements, which is chock full of updates about the outage.
And then I blogged for an hour while waiting for my flight. This is a first. I have a laptop that's both comfortable in the lap and has the battery life to support such casual away-from-desktop writing. Not bad. However the flight is completely full and I have (arrgh) a middle seat. It's reasonable to assume my back will ache for a full 24 hours starting tomorrow morning.
I was listening to Adam Curry's latest Daily Source Code as I was getting off the tram into San Francisco Airport. As I got on the escalator he announced the song, a Frank Sinatra oldie, that was exactly the right song at exactly the right moment.
Frank Sinatra: Come Fly With Me.
Steve Hoffman: Medscape tries Podcasting.
Bob Herbert: "If Mr. Bush has a plan to clean up the mess in Iraq, he should say so. If he has a strategy -- besides more tax cuts -- to bolster employment in the U.S., he should tell us. If he's in touch with the real world in which these and other very serious problems exist, he might consider letting us know."

Last Thursday we put up a Paypal page asking for donations to help buy food, refreshments, pay for cleanup, networking, webcasts, and other expenses. The response was fantastic. Many thanks to the following people who gave generously: Scott Loftesness, Dan Gillmor, John Rhodes, RDS Strategies LLC, Craig Cline, Jason Cosper, James McGee, Fred Ballard, ES Designs, Henk Doornbos, Pito Salas, Bret Fausett, Roland Tanglao, Gene Becker, Lawrence Bouchie, Todd Sattersten and Danny Sullivan. And the first people to give: Adam Curry, Britt Blaser and David Czarnecki. We could still use more help, we've cut corners putting together BloggerCon, so every dime we spend will really help make the conference better.
Here's the final list of people participating in BloggerCon III at Stanford Law School on November 6. Basically we were able to accomodate everyone on the wait list. Looking forward to seeing you all in just 25 days!
Please, if you can't make it, that's okay, we appreciate the heads-up. It's much more useful if you enter that into the database yourself, by clicking on the checkbox on this page (after logging on) and click on Submit. That way everything automatically recomputes, without any extra administrative work.
