1.5































Nick Denton: "Weblogs are a testament to capitalism, and the importance of clear property rights." Amen.



Sean Nolan: Amazon RSS. "Wouldn't it be nice to have an RSS feed for all weblog-related books at Amazon, so that when new books became available you'd know about them? Thanks to the magic of web pipelines, it's become a pretty trivial thing to put together." Excellent!



NY Times: "Much weaker than expected job growth in July and some disappointing earnings reports sent stocks sharply lower today."






(image) On this day in 1999, the NY Times ran its first piece on weblogs. Some have claimed that weblogs didn't get started until late 1999, a few months after Blogger was first deployed. This is contradicted by the Times article and an earlier one by Scott Rosenberg at Salon, in May 1999. Both pieces reported on a weblog world that was already established and growing. The first note of Blogger on Scripting News was 8/23/99. It's possible that was not its release date, but I think it was close. BTW, it's really cool that the Times and Salon both keep archives back that far. Most pubs don't.



Bryan Hoch, the man behind the MetsOnline site, shut down by Major League Baseball, now has a column at FoxSports.



Kevin Werbach: "Starbucks lost the chance to sell me an over-priced doppio, while I got my email al fresco."



Perhaps HP has some honor after all.






(image) NY Times: "There is a lot of hand-wringing at AOL about whether it's a media company or a technology company," said John Squires, president of Entertainment Weekly and Time Inc Interactive. "I think the question is sort of irrelevant. Of course, they are going to be a big media company. Don Logan knows how to run a media company."



Phil Hewitt, who is working on connecting Visual Basic to Blogger says: "The Blogger API server seems to be down at the moment, therefore I can't test it." Phil, you can use our test server to verify that your code works. It's been pretty reliable. And you can download a 30-day free trial of Radio, and test it on your own machine.



Sjoerd offers a theory why Dave Rand is the #1 Dave on Google.



























BTW, there's some controversy about whether nicotine is okay or not. My GP says go ahead and use the patches if the urge gets too bad. So far I've not done this, because I don't want to have to withdraw at a physical level again. I asked if nicotine isn't bad for the heart, and (get this) she said it isn't. But I think it must be. It constricts the arteries. When you have blockages in the arteries, the last thing you want to do is constrict them. Another reason I'm not using the patches.
