A picture named archos.jpgEvery Thursday morning a group of between 20 and 50 Berkeley nerds gets together for breakfast at Saul's. It's open to everyone, so if you're in the area please come. Today I brought my Archos and recorded a bunch of conversations. It's an hour-long podcast.  Permanent link to this item in the archive.

Tagcamp is tomorrow and Saturday in Palo Alto. I think I'll book a room in Palo Alto and go hang out with the campers. Maybe I'll provide the music. "Go to the mirror boy!" For 18 points, guess the significance of the location.  Permanent link to this item in the archive.

Kevin Burton: "Here's one of the things that bothers me about AJAX." Permanent link to this item in the archive.

1/4/01: "In the centralized model for the Internet, your browser makes requests of a server that could be very far away, or slow for other reasons. Now imagine that the server is very close and you don't have to share it with anyone, it's yours and yours alone. It would be fast!" Permanent link to this item in the archive.

BBC: "People are underestimating what Microsoft is doing with search technology, says Bill Gates." Permanent link to this item in the archive.

Harriet Miers withdraws Permanent link to this item in the archive.

Just heard this on NPR. Harriet Miers has withdrawn as a Supreme Court nominee. Fascinating. Can't wait to see how Bush moves. AP story on MSNBC.

Science, art, voodoo and luck Permanent link to this item in the archive.

Ben and Mena Trott explain why they're having performance trouble on their Typepad service. Maybe our theory about putting the content management on the workstation wasn't so bad after all. That's the approach Radio took in 2002. After a while it became clear people preferred to have someone else manage the content management for them.

I'm sure SixApart will get the problems sorted out, but no one should underestimate how hard it is to keep a service like TypePad running as it's growing. I sure don't, having lived with and Scaling is a science, an art, voodoo, and more than a little luck, as Ben's story reveals.

Perfect OPML Permanent link to this item in the archive.

I've been working with John Roberts at CNET to make his OPML perfect. All the attributes conform to the validation guidelines, and work perfectly with the OPML Editor.

Faster Mac Permanent link to this item in the archive.

In yesterday's thread where I explored buying a new Mac with a dozen awesome Mac experts. Brian Criscuolo found a way to make my current Mac perform as it was designed to. Here's what I did that made the difference:

1. Create a new user with full Administrator priviledges.

2. Log off. Log on as the new user.

3. Do some stuff.

4. Log off. Log on as the old user.

Voila. Fast Mac! Zzzzzip.


I kind of thought this was an easy to use computer?

Oh well.

Verdens beste blogger Permanent link to this item in the archive.

Okay I have no idea what this means, but a big site in Norway thinks Scripting News belongs on a list of ten blogs (pretty good company).

Jack Foster Mancilla translates: "The Worlds best blogs. Blogs have taken over the net, and many of them are among the worlds largest websites. See are all the best here, and make your own."

About Scripting News: "This blog is written by Dave Winer, an is one of the most influential tech-blogs in the world. Dave Winer is some times a controversia figure, but at the same time he is deeply respected."

I asked Jack for context. "This particular article is using the blogs mentioned as examples, for a purpose. TV2 has just launched Nettblogg. That will give everyone who wants one, a free blog space. The good articles from these blogs will be published on the NetAvisen website as real articles."
