Last night at 2AM, Maryam Scoble gave birth to a healthy 9 pound boy named Milan.

Scoble being Scoble, of course there's a Twittergram marking the moment, and some Flickr pics. And Maryam's seemingly endless labor was lovingly chronicled on Twitter itself.

Oh happy day!

Much love and a hearty mazel tov to the proud parents, his big bro Patrick and the newborn baby boy.

Networked Journalism Summit, Oct 10, in NYC.

A picture named bowser.gifJeff Jarvis: "The premise of all this is that even as journalistic organizations may shrink, along with their revenue bases, journalism itself can and must expand and it will do that through collaborative work. The internet makes that collaboration possible and we’ve barely begun to explore the opportunities it affords. A year or two ago, the point of such a meeting might have been evangelizing this idea. But in that time, a number of great projects in collaborative, networked journalism have taken off. So now is the time to share the lessons -- success and failures -- from these efforts and to determine what’s needed to move on to the next goals. By bringing together about 150 practitioners from all sides, we hope that the meeting itself can spark new partnerships and projects."

"RSS was born in 1997 out of the confluence of Dave Winer's 'Really Simple Syndication' technology, used to push out blog updates, and Netscape's 'Rich Site Summary', which allowed users to create custom Netscape home pages with regularly updated data flows." - Tim O'Reilly.
