Wow, Zempt is kewl

· Miscellany

I’m posting this entry from Zempt. Slick little interface going on here. I like the xmlrpc autodiscovery. When they port this to OS X it’s going to give kung-log (a very cool tool itself) a run for its money. Well, they’re both free so I don’t know what that means. I did donate some money to Adriaan…
So whence ‘Zempt’ anyway?

Bookmarklets?

· Miscellany

I forget, isn’t there a bookmarklet for this thing?
It seems like it would be safer to link to some other beta blogs to test the trackback process, though I gather it’s more-or-less identical to MT’s.

Photo album mentionization

· Miscellany

So is there some accepted practice for linking new photo albums into the weblog? Do I just post the link here in a new entry.
No wait, while I was fiddling with test blog No. 2 I noticed that photo album(s) is an optional design element, so I’ll hop over there now.
Damn, this is maddeningly addictive!

Hello, world

Just thought I’d kick off this TypePad thingy with the traditional first words of every newborn computer utterance-making system.

Buzzing New York, July 9 – 16

· Miscellany

Hey, I’m headed to New York next week (after the 4th of July holiday). I arrive on Wednesday, July 9 and I’m returning to Oakland late on Wednesday, July 16.
Before then, I have some brutal deadlines. While in New York I’ll do some work (mostly reviewing manuscript for my current book project and meeting with a few publishers) but I’m also trying to take some time off, decompress, and catch up with some old friends.
Speaking of which, for my friends who do have a life, I thought I’d mention the b3ta newsletter that sends out a slate of kooky links every Friday. If you already know about b3ta then you are a geek, which is OK. Don’t send me any “d00d, I’ve been getting my wacky links from b3ta for years now – where have you been?” mail. I am mentioning the b3ta collective for the benefit of my less jacked-in friends and family, who are legion and include Jeff Green.
