Ev, what's even funnier is 2000

Ev, what's even funnier is that Jakob Nielsen is basically a weblogger himself. What is Alertbox but short content, released over time, on an irregular schedule, containing personal opinion, frequently containing links to the topic discussed or further resources?

Wait, wait, this is definitely 2000

Wait, wait, this is definitely truer to the inner Meg and Jason (and John too). :)

Walk There 2000

When you need to get something, ask yourself
1. Do I really need this?
and if the answer is yes,
2. Can I walk (or bike) to where I can get it?

Today I walked to the Orchard Supply Hardware near my home. Every other time I've gone there, even when I only needed little, lightweight things, I've driven. It's 1.3 miles away and it was a nice walk. I saw lots of squirrels and smiled at people who smiled back and met the identical twins who work at OSH. Very pleasant!

Now I'm curious about what else is within a mile and a half of home where I might want to go...

I should have said hi 2000

I should have said hi to and traded stickers with Dori at Fray Day, but I was too busy trying to figure out if maybe she was that cartoonist/artist from Santa Cruz that I really like whose name I thought was "Dori", but now I recall is actually "Nina Paley". Silly moi.

Allow me to state for 2000

Allow me to state for the public record that ratbastard is hella cute.

What a terrible shame that I'm two years too old and almost 53 driving hours away.

Makes perfect sense to me 2000

Witness Behind the Curtain 2000 at the Bradlands, picture 25:
about which Brad says:

Time to water the orchid. I inherited the orchid when I took this office. It was originally given to the marketing department by one of the actors in last season's Into the Woods, who himself received it as an opening night gift. Surprisingly, although my thumbs are anything but green, it seems to be surviving under my ministrations pretty well.

Well, Brad, of course it's doing fine. Will ya just look at the upper left corner of this picture? It's clearly well-motivated.

I've started a new blog 2000

I've started a new blog within a blog. Of late, I've been simplifying my life and it is definitely making me happier. I thought other folks might be interesting in hearing how I'm living more simply.

The mindset for writing 2000

If you like to keep a presence on the web, do yourself a favor and recognize that:
- you don't have to put out masterpieces every week.
- you don't have to update every day.
- you don't have to enlighten your audience with every post.
- you don't have to hand-code to maintain your street cred.
Set yourself up with Blogger [or TypePad] and cut yourself some slack.

And when you've visited Lilly, 2000

And when you've visited Lilly, do what I did and stroll on down to metascene. Good stuff.

Edmond told me about and Fred gave me the link to MC Hawking. Yes, gentlemen, you know The Shit.

I saw brig at Fray 2000

I saw brig at Fray Day last night too. Here are her thoughts on the evening. I had some of the same reactions, but a different problem. Rather than being uncomfortable with the pressure to make small talk, my challenge was being surrounded by a sea of familar faces to which I could only tentatively put names. It was just awful to look at people who I knew I should know, whose deeply personal sites I read, whose work I've praised, and not be sure that if any name came to mind it was the right one. So I mostly just talked to the ones I was sure of. I realized on the way home that, while it was nice to see friends, I missed the opportunity to make new ones.

{Casey, you were so sweet and came up and said you liked my open mic piece and we traded stickers*, but I didn't get your email or URL or phone number. I'm a dummy. Drop me a note, ok?}

The other thing that I found nagged at the back of my mind was that I felt I was there to bear witness to people's stories, so it was annoying that there were so many people in the room chattering loudly. But then again it was a party, a community gathering, so that was an appropriate activity too. I just thought, while I listened, that it was rude. Then when I was on stage, in front of the mic, under the bright lights, I didn't hear them at all and felt I had the full attention of my audience. So that was all right. I'd been worrying on behalf of the storytellers and it was all unnecessary, as worrying for others usually is.

*Heather's contribution of the photo sticker booth was absolutely dead brilliant. I'm thinking that some kind of sticker action for SXSW next year is in order. Perhaps little passports where we can trade stickers with each other's names & URLs & fun slogans/images? Wouldn't that be a nice souvenir? And a way to remember all the blur of new acquaintances?

If you are concerned about 2000

If you are concerned about the effect dotcommies are having on San Francisco, you should know about The Digital Workers' Alliance. Their basic position is that while there has to be a place for the computer industry in San Francisco, it can't come at the price of the neighborhood-centered, arts-friendly, sexually, ethnically and economically diverse character of the city. [link thanks to Judith (who it was very nice to see at Fray Day last night)]

Habits die hard. Ev is 2000

Habits die hard. Ev is in New York. He is not updating his website several times a day. There is no new content since Monday. I know this, yet it does not stop me from visiting his site several times a day. It hasn't stopped me all week.

Ok, now you you know 2000

Ok, now you you know I'm not a baby person. In fact, most of the derogatory terms for children in Strafe's Guide came from me. But I'm damned if Brad wasn't right and even I was unable to look at Baby Natalie and Jasper Dog without going "aww, so cute!". Nice sheets too, James. (Note that my true nature is revealed by the fact that I did not look through the rest of the Natalie pictures but instead viewed every lovely shot in the Jasper Dog gallery. Jasper is my new pin-up).

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).
