My Son in Iraq: I Know That it Happened Because I Heard It

What the hell are we doing in Iraq? I'm calling my congressperson now - I suggest you do the same.

The Morning Drive

Grant and I have been commuting in to work together and have decided to inflict audio pain on our friends and readers in the form of a podcast. Enticing, no? Let us know what you think about The Morning Drive. Of course you can listen to this via Odeo, iTunes or even Google Reader.

Taking a couple of days on

Yes on. Sure I'm not going into the office but doing chores I have been dodging for months doesn't really seem like I'm taking a day off. I'm just taking my day elsewhere. Since I embarked on the Reader project I haven't had a vacation so I'm treating myself to a trip to the pumpkin patch tomorrow with Drew's preschool class. Drew is pretty pumped about Halloween in general and we had a brief chat about it before he went to bed. You can listen to our chat on Odeo.

Our project launched

I've been telling friends for a little while that I haven't really been full time on Blogger for a while, that I am going full bore on something new we dreamt up. Finally, our project launched today and I can't believe I'm still awake - so tired. I'm going to bed now but I thought a quick chronology of today was in order: Announced Google Reader now on Labs at Web 2.0Slashdot, Metafilter and everyone and their brother visited and tried to upload all their subscriptionsServers became not happy (one bad seed I suspect!) Servers became happy shortly thereafterLots of blog posts complain that the service is slow but it's BETTER. We swear!Lots of folks say nice things about it Reader in generalProblem with some OPML imports reported Fix patched in to address issueKeep making it better for the foreseeable future What can I say, we are flattered at the turn out.

Haze of love

It’s three o’clock in the morning, Or maybe it’s four. I am thinking of you, Wondering what I should do, But I’m finally cutting through this haze. Lyrics from Haze of Love by CakeIt's early, or late. Depending on how you look at it. I'm going to bed now so I'm calling it late.Furthermore, I'll be at Web 2.0 tomorrow this morning. If we are friends, I recommend the 9:45am panel. See you there.
