is on the move..
I've moved <CONTENT /> to new digs.  After a number years of using Radio as an aggragator and blogging tool (and outliner), I've decided to switch to something that is less resource intensive and more mobile.  I've moved <CONTENT /> v.4 to WordPress and setup the server-based Feed-on-Feeds as an aggregator.  This blog will remain where it's at for archival purposes.  On 2/24/05 I'll redirect the feed links from my categories here to the new version of the blog, so if anyone is listening they can keep up.

Also, sorry for the blackout on the purpose of my stay in Atlanta. The people I'm visiting don't want publicity for what they're doing, and I of course am respecting that. [Scripting News]

OK, so Dave is poking around Atlanta and something is up.  Tha is interesting, lots of things are going on around this town these days, but unlike during .com bubble alot of it is being closely held.

podcasting - the experiment. So because I only understand things by tinkering with them, I've decided to tinker with podcasting. I am convinced from an intellectual perspective that this one of the most important net-related developments in a long time. But I need to understand it more than intellectually. Thus, with thanks to Dave Winer and Adam Curry for start-up advice, an experiment in podcasting begins. I have started, however, exactly where they said I should not -- reading written texts. Wired has encouraged me to podcast readings of my columns, and as that was an easy and deadline-related reason to get going, I've made that the beginning. The best of podcasting, I am told and have seen, is not read, but written. Writing in mp3 is something I hope to experiment with soon. Until then, here is 050201 (the first, maybe the only, podcast from February, 2005): A reading of my March column in Wired, read with a very bad cold. (Geeknote: I'm using Brandon Fuller's very cool MT-enclosures, I hope properly.) [Lessig Blog]

LDAP Admin
LDAP Admin:"LDAP Admin is Win32 application for managing LDAP directories. Initially I planned it to be LDAP Browser and Editor which I could use to manage Samba accounts from my Windows machine. Later, it was extended to support some more common LDAP objects. You can use it to manage Posix groups and accounts, Samba accounts and it even includes support for Postfix MTA."

Report: City-run Wi-Fi plans could have 'grave flaws' - Computerworld

Report: City-run Wi-Fi plans could have 'grave flaws' - Computerworld - "City-run wireless broadband networks such as those now under discussion in a number of places, including Chicago, Philadelphia, Las Vegas, New York and San Francisco, haven't been fully studied and are being touted with dubious claims about their benefits, according to a report issued by the New Millennium Research Council.
The Washington-based NMRC is an independent subsidiary of Issue Dynamics Inc., a "consulting firm specializing in public affairs and relationship-management services." Its clients include SBC and Verizon, companies that municipalities would be competing with if their plans to provide Wi-Fi service are realized.
The six authors who worked on the report (download PDF), which was released yesterday, warn that if the proposals aren't studied fully, taxpayers could be left to pay for what could soon be outdated technology. "

OK, let's review.  A consulting outfit that count Verizon and SBC as clients commissions a study that says that local gov'ts are making bad decsions by deploying community wide WiFi nets.  This comes after Verizon lobbies the PA legislature to make Philly's plans to turn the city into a giant hotspot illegal.  The baby bells need to wake up and realize that their time is over.

Slashdot | Shmoo Group Finds Exploit For non-IE Browsers
Slashdot | Shmoo Group Finds Exploit For non-IE Browsers:" Shmoo Group Finds Exploit For non-IE Browsers Posted by Hemos on Monday February 07, @10:30AM from the even-mozilla-is-guilty dept. shut_up_man writes "Saw this on Boing Boing: East coast hacker con Shmoocon ended today and they had a nasty browser exploit to show off... using International Domain Name (IDN) character support to display fake domain names in links and the address bar. Their examples use Paypal (with SSL too) and this looks very useful for phishing attacks. Interesting note that it works in every browser *except* IE (which makes this exploit a lot less dangerous in the end, I suppose)."v The reason IE isn't vulnerable is because it doesn't natively support IDN; with the right plug-in, it too is vulnerable.

Yahoo Builds Search into Web Pages

Yahoo Builds Search into Web Pages - "In its latest move to expand the reach of its search results, Yahoo Inc. released a service late Wednesday that provides related search results within the context of a Web page.
Yahoo launched a beta test of the service called Y!Q in an attempt to automatically provide users with relevant search results without requiring them to initiate a query, a Yahoo spokeswoman said. By analyzing the content on a Web page, the service is able to display related results within a dynamic box on the page itself.

This is quite cool and needsto be seen to be appreciated.  You can try it out here or here.
