In April I visited Microsoft to hear about some interesting ideas they had about RSS. On Friday they will explain these ideas publicly. Today, with their permission, I have a preview of part of what they will talk about. I hope everyone who's interested in RSS listens carefully. I know I will.
Dave Luebbert: "Outlines can model the flow of time."
Lots of ideas for songs to sing in the opening session of Gnomedex on the long cross-country flight. One of them was on my list and on Julie Leung's -- and that's (envelope please) -- Louie, Louie by the Kingsmen. It's a favorite frat song, and was sung by lots of rock and rollers, and the lyrics sure are simple. Other candidates on my list are (in no special order): Yellow Submarine, Happy Trails, Dixie, Yummy Yummy Yummy I've got Love in My Tummy, MacArthur Park, Kodachrome, The Candyman. Some would be great to play but would be hard to singalong, like Steppenwolf's Born To Be Wild. A bunch of good ideas in the comments. I like Alice's Restaurant. That might have to be it.

Good morning from Orlando. I'm adjusting my clock for Pacific time and waking up at the single most awkward time of the day -- just after midnight. How about that. Got a voice mail from Scoble, but he didn't answer the Big Question of the Day posed by Kosso, the one we're going to labor over at Gnomedex. The question of The Middle Initial. Come on Scoble, give up the goods. Is it an S? Or not. Is it yet another evil plot of world domination for Scoble and his so-called bosses. We're not fooled. Oh no. We know what the real issue is. It pays to start thinking about it. The big question, the one that will determine the fate of all of us is (please quiet in the back)... click here.
Phillip Torrone: "Odeo, the podcast service is launching as we speak, I've been using it for a couple weeks and really like it."
Also from Phil comes news that iPodder 2.1 is out.
Three years ago an incredible outpouring of support. Truth be told I haven't had the guts to read these posts until today. Tears streaming down my face. Thank you.
