Guidelines for validating OPML. Preparing to write a validator for OPML, I started taking notes about the conventions of OPML, and it turned into an interesting document.  Permanent link to this item in the archive.

If you have a comment, please post it on your blog, and let's see if Memeorandum picks it up. Maybe we can keep the discussion on the high road that way. Or... maybe not.  Permanent link to this item in the archive.

A picture named pod.jpgI was interviewed yesterday by Mike Vizard and Steve Gillmor (mostly Mike) in a show that's to be aired on Sirius satellite radio, channel 103 at 5PM Pacific. Could someone get me an MP3. Now I'm becoming famous for predicting the demise of the iPod just as it's reaching new peaks -- tune into this one because I predict that it's too late for Microsoft to get RSS, that the train has left the station before they even got on board. I stand by what I said, the only way it makes a difference for MS is if they magically come up with time-travel, and go back to 2001 and put RSS into Windows XP. Heh. Sorry. This show is worth grabbing if only because when asked if I ever expected RSS to achieve all it has, I said Yes I did. Oooops. In the NerdTV interview I said No I didn't. Better not run against Karl Rove anytime soon, eh?  Permanent link to this item in the archive.

Probably the single most aggravating thing about using a Mac after using Windows for so many years is the location of the clock. My eyes are always looking in the lower-right corner to find out the time, and it's not there, it's in the upper-right corner. The other thing that's vexing is the need for forced-restarts. It happened again today. I suspect this is because I am using the El Cheapo model Mac and am probably pushing it too hard. But I still haven't ruled out the possibility that I'm getting trapped in some mode that I don't know how to get out of. Permanent link to this item in the archive.

A picture named buddha.jpgI wasn't at Web 2.0 last week, but I know some of the jargon that developed there. People were walking around saying this is the Flickr of that, and that is the Flickr of this. I got this from Mike Arrington, who says I drive the Flickr of minivans. I suppose that's true. And on the dashboard I have the Flickr of bouncing Buddhas!  Permanent link to this item in the archive.
