Around the block:
- Esta writes about the Baptist Church protesting the Laramie Project and seeks constructive ways of providing opposing images of what Christianity is all about.
- Craig emailed me about a study of RSS statistics in progress over at All Things Distributed. So far they are reviewing data from their own logs, which is a little suspect as far as their market share study (with only 141 unique agents represented) goes. More interesting is the study of polling frequencies; looks like a lot of people leave the frequencies at their defaults.
- Dave points out that Scott Young, UserLand’s new CEO, is now keeping a weblog to discuss the company’s direction.
- Looks like Tara and Matt might be moving out of the neighborhood. Can’t really blame them; I don’t know when “bang for the buck” has applied to any part of Kirkland, except perhaps when talking about Very Large Bucks Indeed.
- Dave Hyatt reports on updates to WebCore, the heart of Safari and other web apps from Apple.
- Oliver Willis points out the hypocrisy of those who argue that 9/11 justifies all the president’s misdeeds, then turn around and slam the victims’ families when they protest the president’s policies. Quoth a Lt. Smash (there’s a moniker crying out “I am the voice of reason!”): “Do these ladies get a free pass because they’re widows? How long does that free pass last?” (scroll down into the comments)
- ALA: Zebra Tables: CSS liberated tables from the burden of being design frameworks; now it helps them display tabular information better.
