Kottke says a tumblelog is a quick and dirty stream of consciousness… with more than just links. Anarchaia was the first, but there are many copies. And they have a plan.

  1. Ironic: IEEE's new web site isn't standards-compliant.

  2. The history of Comic Sans MS

  3. Trader Joe's 2005 Vintage Ale (by Unibroue) is ridiculously yummy and, at $4.99 a pop, it's easily worth every penny.

  4. Mark Nottingham's announced an utterly fantastic set of tests of XMLHttpRequest's HTTP behavior.

  5. Looking for a beautiful typeface? Fontin.

  6. Two years ago, Bill Gates said that two years from now, spam will be solved.

  7. Kevin Burton rightly thinks stealth mode doesn't work (emphasis mine):

    If you think your idea is valuable you're wrong… Good entrepreneurs don't create ideas — they execute. It's all about execution…

    Here's the important part. One major component of your execution strategy is going to be convincing the blogosphere that your company is the next big thing and will change their lives. You can't do this when you're in stealth.

    Stealth mode also prevents you from hiring engineers, finding investors, and partners. There may still be a few small reasons why going stealth is a good idea but I think for 95% of new Internet companies it just won't work.

  8. I Am Alpha is AOL's new ambiguous Web 2.0 project. Read all about it over at yardley.

  9. As everyone else has pointed out already, Google Talk now supports XMPP s2s. Unfortunately, the current release of Adium doesn't allow it. Fortunately, the next version will.

  10. Andy Budd wants a parent selector in CSS3. Sounds good to me! I prefer the syntax given in one of his comments:

    #child < .parent {…}

    Update: Dylan Schiemann proposed this syntax back in 2000.

    Update, May 2008: This sort of thing has popped up again, this time in Shaun Inman’s CSS Qualified Selectors. John Resig even implemented it for jQuery.

  11. Story of my life: My data is organized. My life is not.Eric Meyer

  12. supr.c.ilio.us mashes up Chuck Norris facts with Web 2.0. My favorites:

    • Chuck Norris does not build to flip. He builds to roundhouse kick to the face.
    • Chuck Norris has more friends on MySpace than Tom.

    These are especially amsuing for me, since I work at a Web 2.0 company and my boss (our CTO) is named Chuck Norris.

  13. Here's an amusing comparison of Joel Spolsky and Paul Graham.

  14. Using SVG for web stats graphs. Drool.

  15. News flash: successful software is actually useful. Go figure.

  16. Tag Soup: Crazy parsing adventures

  17. Don't start a business if you can't explain what pain it solves, for whom, and why your product will eliminate this pain, and how the customer will pay to solve this pain.

    Joel Spolsky

  18. Unsurprisingly enough, it seems the vast majority of Afgans have a favorable view of U.S.-led forces. Via normblog.

  19. NYC says all your A1c are belong to us, the Liberty Belles object. Film at 11.

  20. Scientists have discovered something everybody already knew: meetings suck. Via 37signals.
