I saw this on TV last weekend. The Pew Center on Global Climate Change is a non-profit, non-partisan and independent organization dedicated to providing credible information, straight answers and innovative solutions in the effort to address global climate change. (...) Thirty-two major companies, with most included in the Fortune 500, are working together through the Center to educate the public on the risks, challenges and solutions to climate change.

I've added a message board to the site
01/04/27 I need to wake up (journal)
The Free Trade Area of Americas (FTAA) is an international business deal, disguised as a proposed treaty, that would create the world's largest free market zone - affecting 650 million people and $9 trillion in capital.
Stop the FTAA
A coalition of cyber-protesters plan to flood 28 websites associated with this weekend's free trade negotiations at the Summit of the Americas with page requests and e-mail messages.
Hacktivists target trade summit
Black-clad protesters hurled rocks and Molotov cocktails at police defending the perimeter fence of the Summit of the Americas in Quebec City on Saturday in a violent sideshow to a rally against free trade. (...) At least 20,000 peaceful protesters held a separate march further away from the violence near the fence. They say the Summit's aims of free trade and open borders help big business and hurt the poor.

I don't use Blogger. Still, it's a fascinating story and I hope it will all turn out well.
This week's news...
As a believer in web logging, and an admirer of the product, I didn't like the idea of Blogger being lost in the dotCom crash. Personal web sites were growing and important. Losing the most well known system used by many of the most visible people would be a blow to the industry
How the Blogger deal happened
I met Dan in person at PC Forum 2000, where we had a couple nice visits and were both on the web-apps panel that Dave Winer moderated. Dan demoed Trellix, I demoed Blogger, and Dave demoed Manila. Three quite different approaches to maintaining web sites. Blogger was the only one specifically focused on weblogs - but Dave and Dan kept blogs with their tools, as did many others. Despite what could have been a somewhat competitive situation, it was clear Dan didn't really see us as competitors. Or, if he did, that certainly wasn't stopping him from being the extremely nice guy that he was

Last February's news...
First of all, the company (Pyra) is not dead, and the service (Blogger) is not going away. However: We are out of money, and I have lost my team.
And then there was one
When you build something great, and most everyone that uses it loves it, you expect everything else to fall into place. I kept thinking the business side of things would come together on its own
Behind the website: Blogger
If you knowingly offer a free product, you cannot possibly hope to return your investment. While Pyra itself was a small company, in a message thread on Metafilter, no one has considered the four souls who lost control of the reins behind their noble thoroughbred
The new false prophets
I practice a religion that I usually describe, for lack of a better term, as modern witchcraft. Although I'm the first in my family to practice this way of life, its beliefs and outlook on life come very close to the values my parents taught me when I was a child.
Being a Wiccan makes you feel Special, eh? Well shove your pride back down your throat, kids! This is your wake-up call.
Why Wiccans Suck
Historically speaking, the "ancient" rituals of the Goddess movement are almost certainly bunk
The Scholars and the Goddess
The purpose of this exercise is to dispel the notion that Wicca is Celtic, or derived from Celtic religion. It is by no means to be taken as an in depth survey of either religion. There are a great many questions that could be answered for people if they would visit with the elderly people in the rural areas of the Old Countries, or at least read books written by solid academians instead of profit oriented, new age writers.

One of this year's more succesful pranks.
We've developed a unique client-side nozzle (CSN), which functions just like a conventional modem. It connects an ordinary PC to a regular household water faucet, providing an always-on Internet connection...
Worse things are happening elsewhere, I know. But still it's sad, and quite possibly unnecessary.
Foot-and-mouth crisis timetable
I've been busy setting up my new domain. I'll start updating the weblog again later this week.
