A picture named halloween.gifFirst, thanks to Jeff Pulver for a fantastic conference earlier this week and thanks for letting me keynote it. Putting it in L.A., away from the distortion field of Silicon Valley, made it a lot more interesting and less of a festival of wiener-boys. I fell in love at least five times in 24 hours, that's pretty good. First time I spoke at a tech conference since LeWeb in 2007. Permalink to this paragraph

Technorati rolled out a new version and completely lost track of Scripting News, so I took its icon off the home page of the site. I used to check it every couple of days to see if it found anyone talking about something I wrote here. Nowadays it comes up with nothing. So goodbye Technorati.  Permalink to this paragraph

I added links to my newest projects in the right sidebar. Makes them easier for us to find and of course adds juice to them in the search engines. A picture named sidesmiley.gif Permalink to this paragraph

Happy Halloween! (And Let's go Phillies. Teach the Yankees about philosophy.) Permalink to this paragraph
