As nearly everyone in the world has noticed, Google has a blog now. It’s too bad they didn’t go with the /blog/ URI because this one has extra redundant redundancy, and that doesn’t seem very Google-like. The new blog is very generic, it barely seems like a Blogger blog. On the same day Blogger releases […]
Announcing the launch of Ping-O-Matic, the coolest ping thing around.
The XHTML Friends Network has been getting interesting coverage lately.
My first article for Digital Web has been published.
Assorted links from all over.
Just a few links and excerpts I’ve come across lately. Use absentee voting ballots so there will be a paper trail: Michaan said, “I consider this to be the greatest threat to our democracy of anything we have ever faced in this country. There is so much possibility of fraud that there has to be […]
What can I say, I like it. Orkut is a new social networking site funded by Google that takes the best of all the other sites out there and rolls it into one fast system. Let me emphasize fast. I gave up on Friendster because I’m not patient enough to wait minutes for every screen […]
Jacques Distler was flooded by random comments using a script specially designed for MovableType called FloodMT. Terrato.org seems to be down however the scripts are still widely available. We are working hard to address this sort of problem, for example comment throttling has been in WordPress from the beginning, but it is not a trivial […]
From Jeffrey Zeldman, A Little Death: To avoid pain, we began to feel less. The price is a wall you build around yourself. At first the wall protects you; then it merely shuts you off from the light of experience and the warmth of love.
50 Miler Panorama is one of the coolest panoramas I’ve seen. Zach’s dad sent me an email detailing a little of the process: Dan Hale here – Zach’s dad, and the guy who created the panorama. I did this one entirely by hand in Photoshop. I made nine shots that day, placing the people in […]
Proudly announcing the launch of XFN, the XHTML Friends Network, a standardized method for leveraging the HTML rel attribute to describe relationships between people.
It is always sad to see someone lose their job due to blogging. Shurely this matter could have been resolved amicable manner.
A little of what’s going on in the corner of the world wide web I frequent: It’s too rare someone bares their soul in grieving to the world. Kevin does it too in a toast for his brother’s wedding. Cody’s Bad Art Night is this evening. I’m going to be there, will you? Zeldman: web […]
While the rest of Ontario was running around in the dark Joe Clark dialed into Compuserve and blogged. His observations cracked me up.
Anyone feeling generous toward SCO today? Questions? Hat tip: filtrs.
FTP to SFTP bridge. Hat tip: Matt who is ahead of me on Google. Urchin, best web tracking software I’ve used. Now installed and running for about 70 domains. CVS Version Control for Web Site Projects. I like the sound of this. Logrep Logging stuff
I have a new favorite website.
Sometimes these things just build up, here are a few links worth browsing. Thesis paper in Portuguese that includes some quotes from me and looks at photomatt.net Don’t Cell and Refuel Decent place to compare PDAs Bad PDA, cool watch Hat tip: Eli. I like Jane’s new (to me) look. Fly all over the US, […]
Richard Allen, a member of the British Parliment, now has a WordPress-powered blog. How cool is that? Politician blogs in general are a great idea and I wish more mainstream politicians in the US would pick it up. (What if the President had a blog?) Look for more politician’s blogs in the future, as I’m […]
The Art of the Pun—apparently the worse it is the better it is, which I’ve been saying all along but people just groan. Or at PVA they would do the classic “chop” to show their distaste. Philistines. 😉
