Lynsey, I remain unconvinced about 2000

Lynsey, I remain unconvinced about that "Women don't make passes...". Maybe that's 'cause I'm just a grrrl.

(Hey, didja notice how Derek worked the curve of back of the P in Powazek into the curve of his glasses? Attention to detail, baby. That's what it's all about).

I am reminded by Meg 2000

I am reminded by Meg and pb's new entries how wonderful Jezebel's Mirror is. Hmm, I think I need to start using my digital camera a lot more...

I have a question. Does 2000

I have a question. Does anyone know the technical name for those little cards that have an image which changes when you tilt the card? They are made with the same method as some fancy CD jewel cases (e.g. Tool's Aenima). I found a vendor for the jewel cases, but I need to find some for making other changing image cards.

Another excellent reference from Peter: 2000

Another excellent reference from Peter:

Marc Rettig's presentation on ethnography & information architecture from the asis summit on information architecture. This is a great overview of what experience architects (or information architects or interaction designers...) do and need to think about.

At Web 99, I attended an excellent all-day session on web process & project management given by Marc and Dick Costolo. It was probably the most useful seminar I've ever attended. [and because Marc is really really good at what he does, I just found the notes in two, count 'em, two clicks!] Here are the slides from that tutorial. If you ever get the chance at a conference to see these guys, I highly recommend you do.

Ok, so Ben explains it 2000

Ok, so Ben explains it all for you, but even if you aren't interested in being an Internet Rockstar (like Ben), you should scroll on down to the bottom of that page and check out the great little Ben icon. Now that's cool.

Peter's right; the Arcata Eye 2000

Peter's right; the Arcata Eye Newspaper : Police log index makes some darn fine reading. Favorite headlines: "Person's leg attacks dog's jaws in Redwood Park", "'Yaaaaaaarrrrrgh!' reasoned the man on the Plaza" and "Suddenly, everything went so very wrong". Fine, fine journalism.

I love Hurricane Electric, those 2000

I love Hurricane Electric, those fine folks who host my sites. Why? Because their prices are great, their servers reliable and their customer service attitude supurb.

About 10 minutes ago I just noticed the new domain I bought for my grandfather for his 85th birthday present wasn't pointing to the right page. I called Hurricane. A live human answered. A nice live human. Who figured out the problem and fixed it. And I didn't hear any stupid hold music or "Your call is important to us" or stupid things they force this guy to say, just "Hello, Hurricane, this is Eric." [um, I think the name was Eric] "Oh, hmm. Ok, let me walk in here, hang on, I'll turn down this music. What was the domain name again? Ah, yes, I see, it was spelled wrong. Ok, should be updated out to the web after 5a.m. You're all set."

I love them.

This study of the effects 2000

This study of the effects of celery on loose elastic is still as wondeful as it was a year ago when I first recommended it.

I went out with friends 2000

I went out with friends and saw Shanghai Noon last night. It's the latest Jackie Chan movie and it was delightfully silly fun. Slapstick and good fight scenes and great banter. Owen Wilson does a really good job as an outlaw who thinks (and talks) too much. Once again I have the sensation that some screenwriter sat on a plane with my friend Chris Hudak and wrote him into a script.

O bliss! O joy! It's 2000

O bliss! O joy! It's the weekend. I am going to do a lot of things at home (yes! Feels like home at last) some might seem like chores, but even dusting & vacuuming sounds like a nice project this morning. Away from this silly box! I've had my oatmeal and my psuedo coffee while reading my lovely friends weblogs and I'm ready for my Saturday. Hope yours is grand too!

I like people. I like where I live. I like my new shoes. But I don't like meetings. Yippee! Another all day meeting is over at last! Recess!!!

Read what Denise had to 2000

Read what Denise had to say about people and identity and weblogs and the world - it's good good good. (Fred: "Like Brigitte Bardot")

Taylor has some very intelligent 2000

Taylor has some very intelligent things to say about the great weblog debate. His point that the tools many of us use to write weblogs steer us to shorter posts is very well taken. Think about the size of the Blog This! window (now more than half full with this current post). Clever lad he is.

I am proud to know 2000

I am proud to know these fine human beings. (No offense to Derek, Jason & Meg, but I think Heather has the most scrumptious tongue).

I just went for a 2000

I just went for a walk up Sonoma Mountain with pb & skp. It was lovely! We missed them at the Norwegian Independence Day party up at Edgewood, but it's easy to see why they spent the day hiking. Thanks for the pictures, pb!

Scene: Dinah's room, a typical 2000

Scene: Dinah's room, a typical teenager's room - walls covered with posters, books & CD's & magazines stacked all over and the radio blaring. She is sitting in her open window, talking on the phone with Ev who is in a similar setting. It's a beautiful day.

Dinah: "I really enjoyed listening to you, Brad and Rebecca on that radio show. You were all really well spoken."

Ev: "Thanks. I felt like a big nervous dork. Brad has a better voice and he sounds so calm and collected. But the callers were good."

Dinah: "Yeah! They really plugged Blogger. So, that's really exciting news about Derek. He is so good."

Ev: "We are all so glad to be working with him. Oh, funny thing: you know how a bunch of folks went to see Aimee Mann & Michael Penn?"

Dinah: "Yeah, Meg said Derek took some really nice pictures."

Ev: "Right. Well, Matt (Haughey, not Hamer) turned out to be yet another person who thinks Michael Penn looks just like Lane Becker and..."

Suddenly The Authority Figures rush across the lawn and begin a tirade:
AF: "What are you doing sitting here saying NOTHING?! You should be inside making something of yourself! Don't you know you're wasting your potential!! Anyone could just walk by and hear you and you aren't teaching them anything! You're not adding to the wealth of human achievement!!! Stop talking with each other and start saying something! NOW! And get a haircut!"

Ev and Dinah stare in stunned amazement.

Ev: "Uh, ok. So, anyway, the thing about the concert reminds me about this show I went to..."

This is not a link 2000

This is not a link to Ben Brown. He's whining about how everyone else isn't up to his standards again. How can you have the balls to say "So I get linked because I'm telling my stories when nobody else is" to people like Denise? I could come up with more examples, but I'm too cranky right now.

Ah, heh, and I just got to the part which Matt was talking about it footnote #1.

Why I love Hurricane Electric: 2000

Why I love Hurricane Electric: Almost 11pm at night, and Carlos picks up the phone & answers my question. And he's friendly! Love them.

Blog (noun) A weblog or similar brief journal usually containing links and commentary thereon. Term coined by Peter Merholz.

Visit Typepad or Blogger to start your own. (I began with hand coding, then switched to Blogger when it first became available, then to Movable Type when I wanted more control over my weblog and to have it hosted at a place of my choosing (Hurricane Electric). Since 06/2003 I've used Typepad, a hosted service built by the same folks who made Movable Type, which I love because I don't have to maintain the underlying system).
