  1. feeds to emails?

    So, the reality is that most people still aren’t clued in to this RSS thing. Feedburner and others have tried to make this easier by offering these gigantic lists of ‘subscribe here’ buttons, but one I haven’t seen (and that really should be there) is a ‘subscribe by email’ link, that would take you to…

  2. LWE, basketball, english, books and other miscellany

    If anyone wants to help out at LWE Boston from Tuesday to Thursday, please drop me a note; currently we’re still quite understaffed :) I have tickets to the women’s Final Four on Sunday night- I’m pretty psyched. Perhaps I’ll consult with Bryan as sports-geek-in-residence. Dave: I’m curious about the entire ‘business english’ phenomenon that…

  3. columbia

    Columbia Law School just emailed their acceptance letter. Yay! Still waiting to hear from most of the other schools I applied to, but still really great to hear from one of them and not have the possibility of getting rejected by all of them hanging over my head :)

  4. weinberger thoughts and book software

    I’m at a talk by David Weinberger, whose upcoming book is about categorization and knowledge. You could think of it (as far as I can tell) as the book that tries to put a finger on why tags (despite their shortcomings) often feel as good or better than the heirarchical, outline-based view of data that…

  5. server issues; chihuly pictures

    Am having bizarre server issues tonight. Have a bad feeling it may just be the server getting pounded by search engines and not being able to cope. Blah. So if you click on the next link, and it isn’t there… well, I’m working on it :) A couple weeks ago, I went home for a…

  6. well, blah

    So I finally redirected tieguy.org to my new host at rimuhosting. Mostly I’m happy, though my blog looks like butt and I need to fix the theme. (Does it really matter? Who reads blogs from the web anyway?) Apologies to any planets the new feed spammed. Mostly pretty psyched- still can’t get over how cool…

    One of the primary reasons I’m in the process of moving from my old hosting (with no SQL) to my new hosting (the so-far excellent rimuhosting) was to set up gallery 2. Has been a bit of a PITA, but has had some nice payoffs- coolest toy so far is the Google Map Module. Hopefully…

    Because I know many of my readers were up late last night, thinking ‘how could dogtail get any cooler’, the answer is ‘dogtail would get cooler if it were mentioned positively in this week’s ntk.’ Et voila.

    Link-ification Whoa. Stormy Peters is blogging. For those who don’t know, Stormy was with the open source group at HP, and on the GNOME advisory board. Very cool, very sharp. Work Spent a big chunk of yesterday at the JOLT symposium. My panel went well, I thought, though turnout was slightly disappointing given the great…

    Most Bizarre Technological Thing I’ve Been Involved In This Week. Still have no idea how the feed is both being served and generating a 404. On the occasion of the release of GNOME 2.14, I hope everyone in GNOME steps back and takes a moment to appreciate each other. We snipe sometimes, we’re immature sometimes,…
