Undergroundclips: George Bush on Meet the Press.
Congratulations to the Red Sox and their fans. A great game.
I gotta say this -- AOL is running some kickass ads. They'll have a hard time living up to the promise they make, but why not challenge the people who work there to actually listen to customers? It can only make the company stronger. I think that's basically what Jon Stewart was saying to the CNN Crossfire guys. Owned by the same company too. Also getting their ass kicked in the market. Something to think about.
Markoff: "Google's urgency in releasing a desktop search program shows that it knows the fight over search is moving to new ground."
I just listened to my first Dawn & Drew podcast. They're awesome.
If endorsements were votes, Kerry wins Florida in a landslide.
Watching Bill Frist, Senate Majority Leader, blame Kerry and Edwards for the failure of the Congress to pass tort reform. I thought I was hearing Bush do the same thing in the last debate. I wonder how many Americans know that Congress is controlled by the Republicans. They talk as if there were an adversarial relationship between the legislative and executive branches, which would lead people to draw the incorrect conclusion that the Democrats are responsible. I think today we got a preview of the final onslaught of ads the Republicans are going to run, and there won't be an opportunity to explain that the Democrats don't run Congress. Like the lie that Saddam Hussein was in league with Osama bin Laden, the Republicans don't mind if you draw the wrong conclusion, in fact, they'll help you do it.
NY Times Magazine, quoting a senior White House official, in 2002: "We're an empire now, and when we act, we create our own reality."
Adam Curry: "A lot of people have been questioning the use of licensed music in Podcasts and I too feel that the time has come to face any legal ramifications of this audio wave we're riding now, and not let it take us by surprise."
Mitch Kapor: "We were never meant to have a highly centralized government."
Emailing with Larry Lessig today, he said something surprising about Creative Commons. "No author gives up his copyright when putting content under a CC license. A CC license is just permissions given up front. It rests upon a copyright (without the copyright, you couldn't impose the permissions). But the copyright owner holds the copyright, and just says, 'here's how you're free to use my work.'"
Doug Kaye interview with Adam Curry.
RSS news feeds from South Africa.
This is a test. For the next sixty seconds this station will conduct a test of the Emergency Podcast System.
I got another test blog post. An audio test blog post. Pay no attention to the man behind the curtain.
Editor & Publisher has a list of presidential endorsements.
Undergroundclips has the 60 Minutes interview with Richard Clark.
Frank Rich: "Like the Nixon administration before it, the current White House has kneecapped with impunity any news organization that challenges its message."
The Boston Globe profiles Jack Meyer, the investment banker who's in charge of Harvard's $22 billion endowment.
In a speech yesterday Bush said we will not have an all-volunteer army. A few in the audience shouted, and he flipped it around. They chuckle when Bush makes a mistake, but what if Kerry had said it? Do you think the Republicans would have mocked him? Yeah, I think so. I think the Dems should run that flip-flop as an ad. Fair is fair. And unfair is fair in this election.
