  • Blog Post: Mark is back

    I am glad to see that Mark Jen is back online. For a while I thought he might've actually got in trouble. It's good to see him blogging again. Mark, good luck at Google. I am sure you'll do there just as good (or even better) as you did on the Indigo team.
  • Blog Post: William Gibson has a blog

    That might be old news for people out there, but it was a pleasant surprise for me to discover that William Gibson has a blog ( rss here ). Apparently, it's been up for the last two years or so.

    I just stumbled upon these two posts . Compare them to these two posts . 'Nuf said.

    I was looking around for desktop blog authoring tool. Well, not exactly loooking around; more like I've been pondering the idea for several months.

I guess I have healing..., errr, fixing powers...] [ Update 2 : Exactly 1 hour and 10 minutes after I posted this, Scoble himself showed up for comment. Apparently, there is true to the old wisdom that knowing the name of somebody...
  • Blog Post: Bite the bullet and give us full text

    Blogging was supposed to be that great medium that will help us transition from the web world where the design and the presentation so often dictate what we see and where individuals and companies are judged by how they look to a world where the ideas are the main thing and everybody is earning ranks...
  • Blog Post: Visualizing blogs

    Ever wondered what a blog looks like? Steve Makofsky has implemented small tool to visualize blogs . It would be interesting to add the feature to show a map of the links between the posts in the various blogs. Let's see if I can find the time and play with this in the next week...
