lots of notes

pretty good panel, all the way around. I’m glad we went up to Seattle, even if the Mercer exit is it’s own mini-hell, and even if Rebecca wasn’t there. interesting discussion – lots of the usual weblog philosophy questions came up: what is a weblog, exactly; does anybody make money with them, what does it […]

tonight I’m going to this…

– Invasion of the Bloggers – which I found through Rebecca Blood. fyi, here are the actual weblogs of the panel members, since they’re so thoughtfully listed in the notice (not!): – Rebecca Blood (who apparently won’t be there. bummer!) – Gael Fashingbauer Cooper – Glenn Fleishman – Clark Humphrey

(another person who I wish was blogging) – evil clown generator

early morning blogging

actually, early morning coding, because I can. I’ve also got a ton of house/yardwork to do, but I’ll get to that later.


(and yes, I know things are still wonky. I’m getting to it.) – The Voynich Manuscript – drove a man insane. dude. (I gotta remember to send this to Lance, as the page is at the University of California Riverside’s site, which is where he’s teaching.)
