Or at least it has for us for the past eight years. I proposed to Lisa eight years ago after a meal of duck and angel-food cake. This year the variation was in the sauce, and the source of the duck. The duck breasts were from Wilson Farm (I think technically from Maple Leaf Farms), [...]
Joho the Blog: Web of Ideas: Netty Friends. Nothing like free gatherings of Net thinkers at Harvard to really get the ideas flowing. Also see the (perhaps over-dramatically named) Genius Workshop, which on Wednesday debuts exactly as Doc Weinberger’s Web of Ideas session ends.
Five Across, which is headed by the guy that headed the teams that created iPhoto and iMovie, launched a new blogging system today, called bubbler™. It’s available for Mac OS X and Windows. I took it for a spin. You can read my Bubbler test blog to see my discoveries, but the bottom line: No [...]
I’ve been pleased to see Howard Dean step up to the chairmanship of the Democratic National Committee. Like him or laugh at him, he’s espoused some solid stands on things that matter, not centrist waffling, and has proven that he can energize at least some of the base.

As someone whose library is categorized as fiction, graphic novels, poetry, US history, music, business, religion, travel, house stuff, and philosophy, I have a lot of respect for a library that has to be categorized with “country of origin.” So does the [...]
Astronomy Picture of the Day: The Rosette Nebula. Such a cool photo:
Boing Boing: Angry remix of “You can click, but you can’t hide”. This is what happens when you take heavy handed legal action against customers who are doing something that may or may not be illegal—you embolden customers to go out even further on a legal limb. Update: Why do we object so much when [...]
Got a very nice comment from John Roberts at CNet on the last post, responding to a few points I made about NewsSource and pointing out an important omission. First, the easy one: import OPML is in the “Add Source” tab of the application, and it supports importing from a local file or a public [...]
