RSS Feed-Einf

Tuesday, August 3rd, 2004

Hier ist etwas, dass ich im Feedster aber nicht in Technorati gefunden habe. Handakte WebLAWg schreibt über meinem RSS Feed Artikel. Ich frage mich, warum ich das in Technorati nicht gesehen habe. Ist es weil Technorati nicht alle aufbewahrt? Hat Technorati das Blog nicht? (Wie sagt man “blog post” auf Deutsch?) Auf Englisch: RSS Feed-Introduction […]

A Practical Application of Feedster’s Stop Terms

Tuesday, August 3rd, 2004

This post is for the people who puzzle over why a few of us wanted to see Feedster’s list of stop terms. I tried doing something many of us do, but won’t admit: I went to Feedster to search for “j Baumgart.” (It’s okay to admit you search for my name in Feedster. Really, it […]

Date Discrepancy

Tuesday, August 3rd, 2004

Did you notice the dates of the posts in the sidebar don’t match the date they were posted? Utah Digital Newspapers, for example, is dated July 30, but I posted it on Tuesday, August 3. Manila must not use the date something was actually posted for the date in the macro that lists blog post […]

If this scratchpad has around 1,000 a day, I feel incredibly lucky. But, alas, the Dowbrigade now has more than 400,000, compared […]

Use of RFID in Libraries

Tuesday, August 3rd, 2004

This coming Friday’s Chronicle of Higher Education has an article about radio-frequency identification (RFID) in libraries. While the technology might make some tasks, like inventory or self-checkout, much easier, privacy advocates worry that anyone with the proper device can learn what someone’s reading, even through a backpack or book cover. It also might be possible […]

What?!? The Internet Will Take Over Libraries?!?

Tuesday, August 3rd, 2004

Near the beginning of the film I, Robot, which takes place a few years from now, one character remarks that the main character would have shut down the Internet had he known it was going to take over libraries. The cry of shock that came out of my mouth must have alerted everyone in the […]
