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. Unlike the 8,700 awful political movies to come out in the last few years, this doesn’t treat either side as evil or moronic. So the only people it will offend are those who like good movies.

  2. So liek the Ceiling Cat lieks the ppl lots and he sez 'Oh hai I givez u me only kitteh and ifs u beleevs in him u wont evr diez no moar, k?'

    John 3:16, LOLCat Bible. Via Bryan.

  3. When data is gathered and used for the people as part of civic processes (voting is a good example), processing it using secret software, especially if it’s a private-sector secret, should be totally out of bounds.

    Tim Bray, describing Christine Peterson’s notion of No Secret Software.

  4. Perhaps there is a disconnect between the European institution and its people that we need to reflect on.

  5. It’s not that it’s so amazing that we’ve collectively ‘forgiven’ him—that, in fact, is only proper, a return to reality from a clearly insane injustice of the past. What had me in such awe is that he’s forgiven us.

    Cursed to First, on Bill Buckner’s first pitch

  6. Why should small indie web developers trust Google when the first example app is a Google rip-off of a small indie web app?

    John Gruber, on Google App Engine and Huddle Chat

  7. Give me a plate of fried clams and a Corona and a sunset (or, in the absence of a sunset, a Red Sox game on the TV) and I am happy as a pig in shit.

  8. Stevey’s released a new JavaScript major mode for Emacs. I hope to update my comparison of the various JavaScript major modes to include a review of js2-mode in the near future, but I’m not going to make any promises.

    My initial impression: so far so good, though the default indentation behavior and syntax highlighting leave something to be desired. I’ve updated color-theme-hober2 to include js2’s faces.

  9. After the microformats dinner Friday night, a bunch of us went to The Lamplighter for karaoke. Unbeknownst to Jeremy, however, a plan had been hatched over dinner. The ultimate revenge for rickrolls past. It was awesome.

  10. Just read (in last week’s Mariner) that the Irish Air Corpspipe band was in Scituate’s Paddy’s Day parade this year. Had I been in town for it, I’d have worn the hat Erin made for me.

    Yes, I get my (Massachusetts) hometown newspaper in the mail, about a week late. I wonder how many other west coast subscribers there are.

  11. I had a Sun Type 6 USB keyboard from April 2001 until yesterday, when I spilled coffee on it.

  13. There is very little moral high ground on this planet. What little there is can be occupied by a small number of individuals, and precious few organizations of any size.

  14. Since I switched to using Markdown to write my articles in, I have lost the facility to easily distinguish italicized book titles from italicized anything else—but after years of careful, pedantic mark-up with no reward I find I don’t care any more.
