Today's pictures: Niagara Falls.
And a movie of the smaller American Falls.
The reports from NASA about the space shuttle are starting to make me nervous. How would you feel if you were the astronaut who had to make the repairs? What if something goes wrong? What if he realizes at some point that it can't be repaired? I wouldn't want to be up there right now.
6PM Eastern: Arrived safely in Toronto.
Here's a surprise, the OPML Roadshow will make a stop in Toronto, tomorrow night, 7PM. Spread the word!
Version 0.59 of the OPML editor is out, with three weblog appearance features. 1. You can control the number of days on your home page. 2. There are month links on the calendar. 3. The Last Updated readout is now expressed in the author's time zone.
Kosso: "No one reads this do they?"
Doc Searls: "Most conferences happen out here, where Silicon Valley is the center of things."
Mac Net Journal: "As always, the learning curve may hold me back from jumping on this new bandwagon - especially when I am buried in my work for the city, writing a history book, serving as president of the local Audubon chapter and organizing an art auction." An outliner can help you organize the work you're buried under.
Kevin Howarth: "A bloggers conference in Upstate New York in the summer or fall would delight the senses on multiple levels."
I just finished the history of the Johnstown flood, by David McCullough. I was only peripherally aware of the event, but it was the biggest news in the US since the assassination of Abraham Lincoln. More people died in the flood than on 9-11, and it was caused by human arrogance, the very richest Americans, including Andrew Carnegie.
There's a national memorial where the dam failed.
Sylvia Paull: "The blog might do more for the emancipation of women than the invention of the birth control pill almost 50 years ago."
Rick Segal went through the archives of DaveNet, the predecessor to this site, and found some embarassing stuff from 1994 and 1995. Embarassing only because I blamed the VCs for greed. I think I was really just taunting them, trying to get them to see that the Internet had great potential as a human connection tool. For example, consider Billions of Websites, where I went contrary to the belief that there would be only three websites, like there were, at the time, only three TV networks. Or the Great Women of DaveNet or Holding Hands in Cyberspace. BTW, Sylvia Paull, quoted above talking about the milestone BlogHer conference, was one of the Great Women.
