I just set up a blog for Cathy.
Firefox UI design mockups. That’s how Matthew Thomas did them for WordPress. ASCIIIIIIII.

Just saw the Manchurian Candidate and it was really excellent. The end got away from me though. Does anyone know what happened there?
In a language war, don’t be so quick to push the button. A little Friday fun.
One day left in the contest, there have been some really great entries so far. There are going to be multiple winners of the smaller prizes and one grand prize winner, and you can win multiple times, so keep the entries coming.
MediaWiki looks pretty amazing, and I think it will be replacing phpWiki for my personal use and for WordPress. There is a lot that can be learned from their extensive history and documentation of the development of the Mediawiki project. This is open source at its best.
I’m running the latest nightly build of WordPress 1.3 now. Living on the edge! Seems to be working well, and it’s a good stress-test of the system.
Using Ping-o-Matic with FeedBurner, 3 methods, all easy. Lots of synergy there, both services abstracting details of a fragmented market.
This has got to be the worst error message with the worst instructions ever. I want to see the video (Barack Obama) but I’m afraid about what will happen to my computer if I fire up IE.
Met with the charming Cathy Matusow from the Houston Press earlier today and we chatted for a while about blogs and blogging and blogbloginess. We’re going to meet again this Saturday to talk some more, and maybe even set her up a blog. Yesterday I talked with Farhad from Salon.com for a good while, but that chat was a lot more technical, things like comment spam, emergent communities, and business-oriented topics. Farhad asked some very challenging questions that I had lots of thoughts on but my replies were scattered, so I’m not sure if I communicated what I wanted to say.
Boxes and Arrows: Natural Selections: Colors Found in Nature and Interface Design. A fantastic article that may give you some inspiration in the contest. All the colors schemes I like that I’ve done have been directly inspired and lifted from photographs I like.
