: User to User Support in Web Techniques. I’ve just about given up on “official” support for anything I’ll buy now. If I can’t find a good discussion group about a product or family of products, it’s unlikely that I’ll buy it. I learned how much I liked User to User support a long time ago through Apple’s and MacFixIt’s sites. But it really sunk in when I went by IBM’s site to find something out about my work-supplied ThinkPad. Uh, no. It’s practically impossible to find actual information about anything in particular. Specs? Sure. Trying to figure something out? Never.

: A site called webArchivist.org is spearheading an effort to properly archive sites that featured commentary or links about the attacks of September 11.
We are asking for volunteers to help us identify any web sites or pages that have information or content about the Sep11 Attack. We are especially interested in finding sites by individuals — that record their feelings, experiences or opinions. We are also especially interested in finding non-American sites.
to support the new Weblogs.Com XML-RPC interface? I’m sure some will ask the question, “why should I have to support this system. Shouldn’t it be supporting me?” I’m not asking that question, because for me the give and take on both ends is perfectly fine, I give to it, it gives back to me. But there’s a leap here that many won’t really see the point in making. Will that break a system that, above all, is fundamentally about engaging the network effects that come from being able to join easily?
posting an excellent series of links to first hand, personal accounts of the events of yesterday (and going forward). As he wrote, “the Personal Web certainly shined” yesterday. And today.
