CBS Marketwatch reviewer says iPodder ain't ready for real users.
Lance Knobel feels a Kerry victory, but EVP has swung back to Bush. Adam and I recorded a Gillmor Gang episode today with three surprise guests, childhood heroes of mine, who got the podcast concept, totally, in less than an hour. Dit dit dit. This just in. More rain in California. The lunch on November 6 is still scheduled outdoors. When planning the event we thought luck would be on our side, the rains don't really start until December, right? Hmmm. Don't bet on it, especially in a year when the Boston Red Sox beat the New York Yankees in the post-season. Huh? Did that really happen?

CBS: "Will Google reach $200 in a month?"
Check this out. There's a new aggregated blog page where the leaders of Microsoft's developer division post. That's interesting in its own right, but there's something else that caught my eye, an OPML file listing all the execs blogs. What's cool about this is that Adam could include a link to this in his directory and it would automatically recalc when Microsoft added or removed a blog from their OPML doc. And his directory would reflect any hierarchy in the Microsoft OPML document (it doesn't have any now). Finally, I can comment on other people's use of OPML, and show how it can be used to create a distributed directory with multiple authors and no bottlenecks. Folks, this is the way directories will become useful, we just have to get the MSN guys to tune into this. (And Google.)
The third $1000 donor for BloggerCon III is Bloglines. They run an excellent centralized aggregator that combines the feeds of the weblog world with the feeds of the pros, allowing users to create a customized news flow. They've grown quite a bit in the last few years, and it's great that Mark Fletcher, the creator of Bloglines will be at the conference, and has been so generous, along with the AP and Google, in supporting it. Thanks!
Enoch Choi will lead the Medical Bloggers discussion at BloggerCon.

Microsoft PC enthusiasts are rebuilding their cars with Windows XP computers in their dash. Scoble has a video report on the Channel 9 website. DVD player, wifi, GPS, hooked up to the car sound system, all digital until the sound comes out the speakers. A microphone on the steering wheel. No aggregator, yet. Touch screen.
The Channel 9 report reminded me that I wanted Microsoft Streets & Trips with GPS, so I ordered it today. It'll go well with my new ultralite laptop. I'm driving to BloggerCon, the day after the election.
