A driving coffee notes podcast with music, toll booths, and feeling! Permanent link to this item in the archive.

A picture named jewishPastry.jpgI had lunch yesterday with Cyrus Farivar, freelancer for Wired News and the NY Times, among other pubs, and 23-year old grad student at Columbia University's School of Journalism. We ate at the 2nd Ave Deli, at 10th St, I had matzo ball soup, a kosher hot dog, chopped liver, a Diet Coke, followed by coffee and rugelach. Between wisecracks from the waiter, I pitched him on posting complete notes on his articles and pointers to the blogs of people he interviewed, and he agreed, subject to the approval of his editors. Well, his editor at Wired said yes, and true to his word, he posted his notes for a recent Wired piece he did on car chase technology. Excellent! Permanent link to this item in the archive.

Congrats to Jay Rosen on his new book deal. Permanent link to this item in the archive.

3:30PM Eastern: Arrived safely in DC. Permanent link to this item in the archive.

The discussion about Sunday has settled on an 11AM geek brunch instead of a dinner. Makes sense to me. Permanent link to this item in the archive.

Today's feature is Pictures from the Top 100. As it reads feeds, it adds the pictures it finds to the list on this page, linked to the post. Interesting that gadgets have taken over since I last watched this readout. Permanent link to this item in the archive.

A picture named suffle.jpgAnother idea for free. I want a USB port on my car sound system. Take my flash drive, load it up with some podcasts, and plug it into my car and go for a trip. All the usual controls apply, back, forward, pause, volume control. This is vastly preferable to putting an iPod dock in the car, which is giving way too much power to Apple. Speaking of which, walking in Manhattan yesterday I saw iPods everywhere, even an iPod Shuffle. The guy was wearing it like jewelry, a white pod on a black shirt, with the wires configured as in the TV commercials. Walking through the city is like walking through an Apple ad.  Permanent link to this item in the archive.

eWeek: "The city of Philadelphia will release details of its wireless expansion plan next week. The plan, according to city CIO Dianah Neff, is to cover the entire city from downtown to local neighborhoods with low-cost, wireless broadband access." Permanent link to this item in the archive.

Three years ago today, a remembrance of Davos 2000. Permanent link to this item in the archive.

A picture named bryan.jpgBryan Pietrzak doesn't like my tone and thinks I'm too egotistical. I usually don't point to these posts, because frankly, I don't care. I've been doing this for so many years, there's not much excitement left for me in this kind of personal judgement. But the cool thing about blogging (still) is that you can be yourself and not worry what other people think. That's what you have to do all the time, every day, where ever you go. On your blog you get to say what you want. Bryan, I don't care for your tone, either, and I don't think you're being fair, but I'm glad you have a place to express yourself.  Permanent link to this item in the archive.

Jasperjed: "He doesn't get the kind of recognition that includes gratuitous magazine covers because his ideas are disruptive." Thanks! Permanent link to this item in the archive.

Podcast Tuner is "a podcasting tool that does everything you wish the others did." Mac only. Permanent link to this item in the archive.
