Nice Day

Recovered from the Wayback Machine.

I heard a rumor that the weather has been a bit nasty in parts of the country. Since we all know that I’m a sharing person, I thought I would share this absolutely beautiful spring like day in San Fran with those of you who are suffering from cold, snow, biting winds, and various other acts of Mother Nature going “Think you’re hot, huh! Well, take this!”

I went for a walk along my favorite beach, and grabbed a few pics for you all. One’s down below, and the others are Walk pic two and Walk pic three.

No, no. You don’t have to thank me for this act of sharing and generosity. Glad to do it.

Guess what! The Bloggers with Attitude weblog ring now has 28 member weblogs!


Mr. Rogers Evil Twin’s Neighborhood

Recovered from the Wayback Machine.

I asked for and I received. Last week I wondered why someone didn’t create a weblog named “Mr. Roger’s Evil Twin’s Neighborhood”.

Well Chris, affectionately known as Stavros the Wonder Chicken as well as various other things I can’t print in polite company did just that. Not only did he create the weblog, he added me as an editor.

So folks I introduce you to the newest experiment in community publication:

Mr. Roger’s Evil Twin’s Neighborhood. From the Guy in the Red Leather Suit.

I have to jump on to two postings of John Robb’s: one on RSS feeds and one on what he calls the Next Generation P2P Systems. I’ll cover the RSS topic in this posting, the P2P topic in a posting later today. In fact, it will probably be split into a separate page as it’s not going to be small.

Part of the weblogging process to me is visiting each person’s unique site. The words and the surroundings form a unified whole that communicates more than just the words themselves. I like being notified when a person’s weblog is changed, and check regularly. But to strip a person’s thoughts and plunk it into a queue that gets spit out to me on this plain white background — this isn’t a true group forming and communication process, is it?
