MovableBlog: Archives: Pre-Game 7 Links
May 8th, 2003
With nothing better to do before a big Game 7 for the local sports team, here are some links that need to be cleared from my bookmarks and aggregator.
- Employ Open Source Oversight by Thomas Murphy: "Recognize that although initial acquisitions costs might be low or free, ongoing costs to the organization might be equal or greater than those of commercial software."
- KMPings: How To. Good little mini intro on how to setup a Trackback aggregator. Kind of like the sidebar on this site, although mine uses a post set to 'Draft' as its aggregation point. A category would have been a better idea.
- Joshua Kaufman wonders Could Trackback go bigtime? Tim O'Reilly thinks so.
- Social Climbers by Jack Schofield. I'm on the "It's Just Hype" side of the fence. Still, it's interesting hype.
- Living on a knife edge: explains that it's not enough for a site to validate as XHTML, but that it must serve
application/xhtml+xmlas its Content-Type. I tried the PHP code Mark Pilgrim provides and managed to convince my work's proxy that this weblog was to be downloaded as a file rather than viewed in Internet Explorer. So I went back to a
metatag for the time being.
- Is LazyWeb, I invoke thee an emerging standard for LazyWeb requests? Wouldn't an even lazier approach to the LazyWeb be including an RDF snippet or other metadata in a post or web page, so that a LazyWeb crawler can 'autodiscover' such requests, post them, and automatically link to responses?
- Key security questions that every executive should be able to answer by Eric Cole: " in most situations, reducing the risk [rather than eliminating the risk entirely] is the most practical approach." [via Anton Chuvakin]
- The Great CSS Smackdown: interesting thoughts on not only CSS technology, but technology in general.
- Field Notes: Cool URIs: good resources on designing a URI scheme for your website. See also recent notes on controversies surrounding IRIs.
- Serving XHTML as 'application' or 'text': "'application' on the other hand is made for binary data or data that isn't human readable - or textual data that is marked up with binary or not human readable codes. XHTML is generally not that type of data."
- Bad DB Design Leads To Horrible Code
Okay, almost time for the game.

Who's local for you, Wild or the Canucks? Personally, I'm indifferent with these two teams, I just want to see a good game.
Its currently scoreless with 6 minutes left in the 1st period. (I'm sitting in front of the TV with my wireless laptop ;)
