Announcement: "The public review of OPML 2.0 begins." Permanent link to this item in the archive.

OPML 2.0 is easy to understand if you're intelligent, have common sense and are patient. I explain, in this podcast, why the improvements in OPML 2.0 will help users.  Permanent link to this item in the archive.

Here's what the CIO Insight interview with me looks like. Pretty funny! Do I really look like that?  Permanent link to this item in the archive.

When Joan Crawford saw a picture of herself at age 69 or so, she said "If that's what I look like you'll never see me again." They told her that's what she looks like and she was never seen in public again. Permanent link to this item in the archive.

Nicholas Carr: "Edgeio enters a crowded market with a ton of pizzazz and a gram of strategy." Permanent link to this item in the archive.

This can't possibly be true, but if it is, I'm going to rename my podcast the Morning Coffee Notes Podcast Show, and find out whose lawyer is doing this.  Permanent link to this item in the archive.

I love the way people are not buying Apple's horse crap this time. For crying out loud, it's a g-d stereo. I had one of those when I was 15 and that was 35 years ago! Permanent link to this item in the archive.

A picture named meter.gifMeanwhile, the mini-crisis in RSS appears to be over, as the group that was proposing to be the authority on the evolution of RSS has turned, and is now producing a best practices document, which is totally consistent with the roadmap because anyone can produce a best practices doc, Uncle Juan in Beirut can produce one, so can Aunt Alice in Bucharest. You can pick your plan, they can compete in the market, and everyone gets a choice. We live with the imperfections of RSS 2.0, because that's the way life is. Nothing and no one is exactly as we'd like them to be. Whew! That was hard work. Glad it's over.  Permanent link to this item in the archive.

A picture named guy.gifRick Segal and I go to lunch, and he gets an email from the CEO of a blogging tools company asking why Rick is "sucking up." That is so ridiculous, and beneath comment, if it weren't so common. Have the guts to put your name on a dumb comment like that. It leads to other people being openly rude just to prove they're not sucking up, and that's totally not constructive. Let's deal with each other as mature adults, let's get out of the mode where civilized behavior is considered cowardly. In fact it's cowardly to make personal attacks like that, anonymously. Permanent link to this item in the archive.

Gabe rolls out a new esthetic for M-O-R. "A general reduction in rate of eye injury," he says. First impression: Nice! Permanent link to this item in the archive.

Sam Ruby responds to yesterday's post here.  Permanent link to this item in the archive.

A bunch of people want to know what Marc Canter's picture is doing here on Scripting News. Easy. It's a cool picture. And when you click on it, a bigger story is revealed. More coolness! Still mysterious. That's what I like.  Permanent link to this item in the archive.
