MovableBlog: Rather Busy Week
April 11, 2003
It's been busy with a lot of things happening this week. Here's are just someof the things that caught my eye in the RSS aggregator. There are still dozens of good-looking items left in the aggregator to read.
- The public record: "My own weblog is a palimpsest too, a fact which RSS readers plainly reveal when they redisplay edited items. In the case of a substantial update, I'll mark it as such. If I only correct a typo or misspelling, I won't -- but the infrastructure (RSS, Internet Archive) is increasingly likely to notice and version the change."
- Hide CSS from browsers [via Jeffrey Veen]
- Typo Popularity Tracking with Google [via Kottke's remains]: oh yeah? Well, I spell check my site with Google!
- Microsoft Security Bulletin MS03-011: Security Update for Microsoft Virtual Machine - yet another security update
- W3C Work On Semantic Web Sparks Debate by Antone Gonsalves: "In taking the role of inventor, the W3C could eventually alienate companies looking for technology to solve today's integration problems. Emerging Web services standards, for example, are being deployed and are tying systems using modern technology based on extensible markup language (XML)." I've been looking for counterpoints to the W3C in general/principle, and this is the first. There's a general consensus that Standards Are Good, but what happens when the standards process runs amok? [via Semantic World]
- halfHourRedesign: ahhh, orange.
- Trackback to the source: there's been much ado about Trackback lately. I have my own not-fully-thought-out ideas for implementation of Trackback, like a centralized system for notification (notification of "events", defined very generally, and incorporating the so-called "real world") and an application of XML for notifications (PingML? NotifyML?). Feasible or no, it's something that popped into my mind when a pen and paper weren't handy.
- Brad Choate's Mozilla resource page: the only thing I'd consider missing from Blogzilla (the sidebar links are pretty paltry, but that may be a consideration for the redesign).
- On Semantics and Markup by Tim Bray: a rather excellent introduction to the subject.
