News.Com: Blog censorship gains support.
Google Video Upload "lets you submit videos electronically."
By now a bunch of people have had a chance to review Google Video Upload. What do you think? What were you first experiences?
Richard Bluestein: "These big media guys are going to become the art police."
Kosso: "Spoilers ahoy!"
McD Tracy: "Neat little hack, Dave. Keep 'em coming." Actually I do have another neat little hack to offer Frontier system managers, maybe even later today. It's a Tool that keeps your DGs free of comment spam. It really works. Not sure if they have anything like it in MovableType-Land. In any case, the existing comment spam defenses in Frontier and Manila aren't working, I seek to improve that situation.
BlogHer is a conference about women & blogging, 7/30, Santa Clara.
GoDaddy has a podcast feed.
Oh for the days when political correctness didn't rule public discourse. Consider the Randy Newman song, Short People (1978). "They got little noses and tiny little teeth. They wear platform shoes on their nasty little feet."
The NYC podcasting meetup is on April 20, 701 Seventh Ave.
Cory Doctorow has a picture of unhappy people at Disneyland. He says it's eerie and that's true. I've never understood why people like Disneyland so much. I've always really disliked the place. What nailed it for me was getting stuck in the It's A Small World ride with all the puppets singing for hours, while they tried to figure out how to get us out. When they finally got the ride working, as compensation, they offered us more tickets. That was absolutely the last thing I wanted. Get me outa here.
Doc Searls: "When it's over, you can't help repeating, for the rest of your life, a song that you hate."
A friend confirmed something that I kind-of suspected. There's at least one person who has told at least one conference organizer that he won't come if I'm also invited. The person has name, of course, but I don't think I should say who it is, at this time.
If the conference organizer goes for that, they've done me a favor, because I wouldn't want to support a conference that allowed people to exclude others in this way. Further, people who make such demands should be scared that they'll be outed. That they're not, says a lot about this stupid little thing we call an industry.
Another related item, there was an anonymous posting in the comments on one of my sites recently that called into question the integrity of someone other than myself, in a demeaning way. The person took the challenge seriously, asked for help finding out who the poster was, and we're pretty sure we know who it is. Like 99.9 percent sure. It's that tiny sliver of doubt that makes me not want to expose the person.
Observation -- it's pretty gutless to challenge someone's integrity and not put your name on it. And it's pretty stupid to do so and leave a trail back to your desktop that a moderately skilled programmer could follow.
