Mike Graves: "Word is out, and itís true: VeriSign has acquired the assets of Dave Winerís weblogs.com." Permanent link to this item in the archive.

The three sub-domains of weblogs.com that are run by other people are not part of the deal: 1. scoble.weblogs.com, 2. doc.weblogs.com and 3. radio.weblogs.com. VeriSign will continue to map them to the places the currenty point. None of these sites are actually on my servers (they were at one time). In other words, no changes.  Permanent link to this item in the archive.

audio.weblogs.com is part of the deal. So VeriSign becomes part of the infrastructure of the podcasting community.  Permanent link to this item in the archive.

I wrote notes on the philosophy of the deal and the events of the day from my point of view. I'll be posting them shortly.  Permanent link to this item in the archive.

10:53PM Eastern: Arrived safely in Greenboro, NC; where it is raining like a mofo. And there was some interesting voicemail for me when my plane from San Francisco landed in Cincinnati.  Permanent link to this item in the archive.

Greetings from near Gate 40, Terminal 1 at SFO. Excellent TMobile connection. Permanent link to this item in the archive.

Interesting -- they have a deal that gives free access to the Wall Street Journal if you're connected through TMobile. I've never seen the for-pay version of the WSJ on the web before. Don't really have much time to read here, my breakfast is coming shortly. Western omelette without tomatos, coffee, ice water. Yummy! Permanent link to this item in the archive.

A picture named surfwagon.gifToday's a travel day, heading from SFO to GSO, for the ConvergeSouth conference, where I'll lead a discussion on Saturday about tools for blogging. Greensboro is about as far away as you can get from Silicon Valley and still be in the US. I doubt if we'll see a bubble, no business models, scams, pundits, carpetbaggers. We will talk about what users want from technology.  Permanent link to this item in the archive.

Somehow it seems appropriate that NerdTV taped interviews with Tim O'Reilly and myself on the same day last week. Tim's interview is on the site now, mine will be up next Tuesday. About me they say: "Though best known these days as the father of RSS and weblogging, Dave Winer has been in the software industry since the days he worked with Mitch Kapor before Lotus 1-2-3." I did say what's on my mind (as they explain on the site) but no need to watch out, I said nice things about everyone. Well, almost everyone. ;-> Permanent link to this item in the archive.

Wired: "What are the best methods for getting your tag taxonomy in order?" Permanent link to this item in the archive.

A heads-up from Chris Pirillo about a new web app he's ready to roll out any hour. I've been following its development, it's very sweet.  Permanent link to this item in the archive.

At 1AM Pacific, listening to Chris Lydon on KQED.  Permanent link to this item in the archive.

Catching up on reports from the Web 2.0 conference.  Permanent link to this item in the archive.

Five years ago I had dinner with Doug Engelbart. Permanent link to this item in the archive.
