Structured Blogging I really don't think this site is about Structured Blogging as much as it is about metadata and archiving RSS feeds. I'll have to look at the code examples some more but it looks close to what I've been doing with HEMS.

Yahoo 360 Invite? Yahoo is in beta with 360. Guess I need an invite. permalink ( Wednesday, March 30, 2005 ) Ray 0 comments links to this post

Master Prognosticators Not just a prognosticator of the Bucknell win, but writer of a great story: Stewart Mandel. Thanks, Judy. permalink ( Saturday, March 19, 2005 ) Ray 0 comments links to this post
Ray Bucknell, Ray for the Orange and the Blue
'Ray Bucknell, 'Ray Bucknell,
Since Bucknell won its first NCAA Basketball Game and since they'll be playing Wisconsin tomorrow, here is some background reading for you.
First, this is a very short piece that appeared in the Bucknell Alumni newsletter by John Feinstein, the well known sports writer. This is about the last game played at Davis Gym where I took boxing in the upper "rafters" and saw the Grateful Dead, et. al. The kicker is who the new Stadium is named after.
Apparently the Bucknell team is not a fluke given not only their conference championship but also this game from earlier in the season. Think you'll enjoy this Feinstein article from the Washington Post. Jan 8, 2005.
Then, if you missed watching the game, like I did, here is the Sports Illustrated reap. "Expect a slugfest in the second round against Wisconsin, another defensive minded club. But if Bucknell plays like it did Friday night, the slipper may be hard to pull off." I'll watch and see if Wisconsin can pull it off tomorrow at 4:50 Eastern.
One final note for you Duke and North Carolina fans who love tradition. "Bucknell began playing basketball in 1896, joining Yale and Minnesota as the nation's oldest Division I programs." - New York Times.permalink ( Saturday, March 19, 2005 ) Ray 0 comments links to this post

start.com I expected to hear the Rolling Stones when I tried this test site of Microsoft. This is a RSS aggregator - at least the start of one. It will get better and we'll see Yahoo! and Google move into this space more. But you might want to take a look at what can be done. I like the displan so far, but adding feeds needs to be easier. permalink ( Monday, March 14, 2005 ) Ray 0 comments links to this post

Review of 2001
I've always like epinions both in concept and execution. However, I've only written on review - all negative - so far. So to start tipping the scales, I wrote a review of 2001 - the best movie ever.
Best film every made. You should see this film, but only under the right conditions. This is two generations talking.
I don't know exactly how many times I've seen 2001, but I did once borrow the projector and the film after being the projectionist. Oh the images!permalink ( Saturday, March 12, 2005 ) Ray 0 comments links to this post

Larry, Moe, and Sergey
Steve Gillmor let Larry, Moe and Sergey have it. Think he is talking about replies like this from Google:
Hope they don't decide my blog is evil because it is Anti-AutoLink.permalink ( Thursday, March 10, 2005 ) Ray 0 comments links to this post

Browser as Operating System A walk on a cold day brings out the minimalist in me. So I was thinking "Why not the browser as operating system." This was after a long day on my laptop writing in my HEMS content management system which runs on a server on my machine. Browser and web server, what else do I need on my machine. I know some Linux consumer version were like this, but with the Google Maps and Gmail, it may soon be a reality. I would not have posted this but the recent move of Mark Lucovsky, an engineer of Windows at Microsoft to work for Google brought this to the front again. I really doubt the he and Google are working on an operating system in the traditional meaning. More like as described above. XML, the Browser and the network are a powerful hybrid of media. permalink ( Thursday, March 03, 2005 ) Ray 0 comments links to this post

Surfing the Laws of Media I've started a new blog for details about a new web site/blog/community called Surfing the Laws of Media. permalink ( Wednesday, March 02, 2005 ) Ray 0 comments links to this post
Google Should Have Guidelines
Dave Winer point out that Google has desktop software principles. Dave is right that Google owes us content modification guidelines.
Cory Doctorow responds to some of the posts about Google's AutoLink feature, calling it a "beloved butler." Something else to consider. In May, Google posted a set of software principles for desktop applications and spyware. It was a curious document, because at the time Google didn't have a desktop app. Six months later, of course, they did, desktop search. Today, Google could allay our concerns by producing similar guidelines for content modification to protect the integrity of the web. Of course such guidelines would make no difference unless Microsoft and Yahoo also agreed to them.
PS. Google, I won't download anything from you now because of this mess you've created. Where do I sign the petition?permalink ( Wednesday, March 02, 2005 ) Ray 0 comments links to this post
