Dumb question: What is a home page? Permanent link to this item in the archive.

The Republican Party is podcasting.  Permanent link to this item in the archive.

Four years ago today in the NY Times: "The notion that independent publications could challenge established media concern because it costs very little to publish online has fallen on hard times along with the rest of the Web's early illusions." Wishful thinking. Permanent link to this item in the archive.

The National Hurricane Center has an advisory feed with updates on Tropical Storm Arlene. It could strengthen into a hurricane overnight. Looking at the map of the system, it's clear that the inclement weather we're having on the east coast of Florida are part of the system.  Permanent link to this item in the archive.

NY Times: "Tropical storm warnings have been posted from St. Marks, FL, to Grand Isle, LA, including the city of New Orleans and Lake Pontchartrain." Permanent link to this item in the archive.

A picture named RSSGreenOnWhite.gifFeedburner offers a redirect program if you choose to return to hosting your feed. I agree with Randy Morin, in the comments, they should provide the redirect permanently. I like that they're promoting the content-level redirect I proposed in 2002, all aggregators should support that. But they ought to also offer the same solution that Libsyn offers -- let me direct a domain at their server so that I can predictably redirect no matter what the aggregators do. Charge a reasonable fee for that, maybe even become a registrar. It's the simplest solution. Anyway it's good that they're listening. Let's go all the way, and open the door for more improvements. Permanent link to this item in the archive.

In 1998, Mason Hale wrote a howto on working with me.  Permanent link to this item in the archive.

Unfortunately I didn't have a camera when I saw this on a bumper sticker. Around here it's seagulls not pigeons.  Permanent link to this item in the archive.

Rebecca MacKinnon: "I spoke to Isaac Mao in Shanghai via Skype to get some clarification and detail about how the latest regulations requiring bloggers to register in China are actually being implemented." Permanent link to this item in the archive.

Ed Cone on his father: "I wish he had known his grandchildren." Permanent link to this item in the archive.

Engadget says Yahoo may buy Skype. Oyyyyyy. I use Yahoo, but I really want a new company to start here. Please don't sell out. On the other hand, they are a beast of venture capital, backed by the firm that backed Hotmail when they sold out to Microsoft (made big waves in the valley at the time) so there's a pretty good chance the rumors are right.  Permanent link to this item in the archive.

Per yesterday's post, I unsubbed from Taegan Goddard's political feed. I got stopped again in my scan, the ads are just too intrusive. Further, I've delivered a lot of flow to his site over the years, and I don't appreciate being used in an experiment this way. Readers are people, not guinea pigs, and if we didn't sign up for tests, then we shouldn't be used that way. Time to read the Cluetrain Manifesto, Taegan. Permanent link to this item in the archive.
