The test group can't be that small if "stewart" and "butterfield" were already taken. I was going to try and test it for spam filtering as well, but I decided to just forward mail into it (so far the filter is 0 for 2).

My Breedster profile
I dig Breedster, which Caroline invited me to (thanks!). I am now an adult, but my first fornication attempt failed (same gender) so I have no eggs to invite with. Hilarious.

I am in love with the word 'neta'. Caterina quoted the following in the post where I learned the word:

In Japanese, "material" for news and stories is called "neta." The term has strong journalistic associations, but also gets used to describe material that can become the topic of conversation among friends or family: a new store seen on the way to work; a cousin who just dropped out of high school; a funny story heard on the radio. Camera phones provide a new tool for making these everyday neta not just verbally but also visually shareable. (source)

I've had a startling number of conversations over the last few months which were essentially about "what do we call this stuff?", and in the last few days it has been natural to call it neta, (don't know how much it helps, but Cal pointed out straight away that it sounds meta and differs from meta in the way that an endash differs from an emdash, which is presumed to be significant).

Congrats to the Kinja team on launching. I finally understand it now ;)

InfoWorld: SOAP author says enough specs already which reminds me a little of 'Fuck the Bullshit, it's Time to Throw Down'. (Cf., Interoperability, Not Standards.)

Lack of standards is rarely the problem. The problems are lack of imagination, lack of a willingness to experiment, lack of time or feedom or will or inclination. And the biggest problem is the the constraints of each business's self interest.

CEO Blogging!

Mena's Corner: Where did those 22 other people come from?
is, in my opinion, a job well done.

I should have put a title here

Jew or jew and here's why. Come on blogosphere.

UPDATE: OK, never mind. An IM with Cory cured me of the googlebomb desire. Except, while we are at it: photo sharing, and, er ... fun web game!

... back!

Wow, it is hard to keep up the blogging. I think part of it is the fact that every time I think about posting and coming to this site, I remember that I will have to deal with deleting the spam comments. Once I have a chance I am going to have to switch to something running on my server. And do taxes. Oy.

I can't imagine anything I'd want to read about less if I was a reader of this site than reading about how it is not being posted to ... but.

I ran into Robert and Maryam Scoble parking their car in Yaletown while Caterina and I were looking for parking this morning and ending up going to a geek lunch. I like Scoble - I didn't get him when I first read his site, but he grew on me over the last few years and now that I've had a few chances to talk to him I understand that he is pretty much a "what you see is what you get" kind of guy, open and straightforward, calls it like he sees it, and that is good. I should be more like that.

He told me that Flickr has been demo'd to Bill Gates which is pretty fucking cool (and scary!) —I also got to give a one on one demo to Jeff Bezos at PC Forum— and apologized for me not getting an invite to the MS social computing shindig which was actually just fine since I am headed to Tokyo at the end of this week and will be in the bay area right after and then Maui all before the end of the month (and I have already been on 10 plane rides or something this year which is too much). But of course, I would have rather got an invite anyway (and there are a few people on the list who I've wanted to meet for a long time). I am oddly comforted by the fact that Marc Canter will be there trying to bring it back to products.
