2004/02/12 Proposed Agenda


Proposed agenda:

  • Will Dave report about his trip to Microsoft?
  • Will Jay report about his radio interview?
  • j can talk about a presentation she gave to a journalism class last night that ended up spending a good bit of time on weblogs and how professional journalists can use
  • Talk more about Salons
  • What’s the difference between the count on the rankings page and the hourly hits page? One is page reads and the other is … ?
  • Is there some way to address the problem that’s caused by RSS feeds without titles not appearing in the subscription list?
  • j’s RSS article is out. Her pointer
  • Eat
    • Border Cafe last week
    • Cambridge Common at 8:45

Post Notes:

  • Recordings
    • RealAudio Recording
      • The Webcast did not go well. Someone who tried listening to the audio file reports that it’s mostly buzzing.
  • Notes
  • Music
    • Reason #5 to go to dinners with the group: Joey, aka Accordion Guy (yes, the rumors about him carrying his accordion on his back wherever he goes seem to be true), stood at the end of the long table seating the 18-20 of us who went to dinner to play his accordion and sing. Some people at Cambridge Common knew the words and sang along. I saw a few bloggers photographing or filming the event, so images may be out there somewhere. Rumor has it Joey will attempt a rendition of Outkast’s Hey Ya for the first time soon.

Like past and future agendas, if you have an item you’d like on the agenda, comment, get blogging privileges from Jay , or contact him or the other j.

    Dave, this morning…. Shimon a month ago. Do we need to bring Dave up to speed on Share Your OPML?

    Topics for Salons: blog platforms; aggregators

    I would like to champion a Salon presenting live demos with Blogger, Radio, Manila, MoveableType, Traction, other off-the-shelf, and home brew. I would also like to champion a Salon presenting live demos with integrated aggregators (e.g. Radio, Manila, Traction), web-based aggregators (myFeedster), off-the-shelf (FeedDemon), and home brew.

    Next in the series: “How I use/would like to use Share Your OPML”

    Make sure to save two seats at dinner for Joey and me. He arrives too late for the meeting but right on time for us to meet you all after.
