Atom feeds for all Blogger users

Months of hard work to get the next generation blog API and syndication to our users. Yay!

My child speaks the truth

It has become a daily ritual to ask my 1 1/2 year old son Drew, to define the color of everyday objects. This weekend I asked Drew, 'What color are Mommy's eyes?' and received back an enthusiastic 'GREEN'. When I asked him what color my eyes were, he said 'RED'. Sadly, he was correct. No pain, no gain right? My red eyes were brought on by late nights leading up to today's announcement that Blogger has turned on syndication for ALL free users. I need to take a nap now.

I'm using this logic if ever confronted with a 'No Camphone' policy

Professor Experiments With Life As Cyborg: For example, Mann has created performance art by shooting video in stores that prohibit it, using handheld cameras more noticeable than the "EyeTap" ocular computing system he normally wears. When employees tell him filming is not allowed, Mann points to the stores' own surveillance cameras behind darkened domes in the ceiling. Then he tells the employees that "HIS manager" makes him film public places for HIS security -- how does he know, he tells them, that the fire exits aren't chained shut? -- and that they'll have to talk to HIS manager.His behavior in such showdowns generally provokes hostility, confusion or resigned shrugs. Brilliant!

A big day in music history

After years of prodding, my youngest brother Grant has finally released some of his music on his blog. This is significant for a few reasons. One, as anyone who has ever heard him play live before, you know that he is damn good performer and has an amazing voice. Two, for those of you unfamiliar with us Shellens, we are perfectionists and agonize about releasing anything into the world (this Shellen included). I'm not sure quite why but as Grant explains his hard drive is full of half-song snippets, mine is full of code, photos and designs I may never have the guts to put up here. This is gutsy either way. Three, this is a sign that my pestering works and what big brother doesn't love to hear that? Do yourself a favor and download his work in progress here and let him know what you think. I think it sounds great even in it's rough state, but I can't wait to hear it with a drum track. Go little bro!

New song from Grant Shellen

I love it! Even without a drum track.

SprintPCS blogging fix

For some users, Blogger's beta camblog posting via SprintPCS has been flaky. The SprintPCS email being sent to Blogger changed and made things look really strange. This has now been corrected and SprintPCS blog posts should now look much better. Here are my instructions from a few months ago on trying this from your PCS phone.

Macworld SF 2004 - bloggers lunch

Rumors, Jobs Keynote, that guy who wants to talk about his Mac SE, schwag and lots of titanium and translucent plastic are coming to town as part of Macworld SF 2004. What better excuse to have lunch with fellow bloggers? It's become an annual tradition for Mac and PC lovers alike. Let's meet at 1pm on Tuesday the 6th at the top of the South Hall stairs at Moscone Center. Everyone is welcome (you don't even need a Macworld pass). Bring a friend and if you live in the Bay Area come out for the event and link this invite. If the weather is good, we will probably walk to the nearest Specialty's for sandwiches and fresh baked goodies and then head back to Yerba Buena Gardens to eat. If you miss us at 1PM, YBG is where you can probably catch us. Are you gonna make it? update: Help, I don't have a pass to the Keynote! Do you have an extra???
