Today's puzzling cacaphonic screen shot. WTF?
6/14/05: "The blogging world is growing up fast."
Thomas Penfield Jackson: "Microsoft has won the browser war in the United States. Netscape Navigator, if it is still available at all, has only a small fraction of the browser market."
Kevin Schofield: "In six days, a research project went from some algorithms in a paper to Microsoft's competitive answer to BitTorrent, to 'vaporware' to an evil conspiracy."
Arrived safely at a random hotel adjacent to Orlando International Airport. Wifi is free and good. Got a smoking room (it stank, and had an ashtray with matches) so I called down and asked "Is this really a non-smoking room," and got an instant upgrade to a suite. Tomorrow morning at the crack of dawn (sorry Drew) I fly to Seattle on Alaska Airlines, and then have my first meeting at 2PM. It's going to be a very sexy trip.
Seattle weather: "Mostly cloudy. 66°F."
Look at all the Gnomedex giveaways. You know this feels like the West Coast Computer Faire in 1979. So much low-budget excitement!
Tim Broeker: "If I were a betting man I’d probably put a bundle down on Dave Winer and OPML."
Rogers Cadenhead: "Check out the entry on the mercury-based vaccine additive thimerosal and the ongoing nine-month flamewar among people removing each other's edits."
Kosso raises an important issue we should discuss in great detail at Gnomedex. "Does Robert Scoble's middle name begin with an S, and if not, why?"
Dan Gillmor: "The trolls of this world are happiest doing damage. I wish the newspaper had gone ahead with its experiment, however, because in the end there are more good people than bad -- and eventually the good folks would have made the vandalism a pointless exercise."
Jeff Jarvis: "This is like hearing Kathy Lee Gifford try to rap and then, upon hearing the results, declaring hip hop dead."
Old Koss did a badge for me too. Nice!
Scoble: "After Gnomedex these kinds of lame sites will look even lamer!"
