Denver Post: What innovations came from Microsoft?

New channel: Hack the Planet. Welcome Wes!

What do you think of A Day Without Weblogs?

I've been playing with weblog search engines this morning, came across some interesting stuff. Linkwatcher apparently searches just the text on the weblogs, doesn't index the stories pointed to by the weblogs. Few weblogs have their own search engines, and those that do don't go deeper either. Our experimental news search engine does go two-levels deep, btw.

Sun: Java and XML.

Costis Dallas is pretty excited about Manila. Me too!

PGPfone is "a software package that turns your desktop or notebook computer into a secure telephone. It uses speech compression and strong cryptography protocols to give you the ability to have a real-time secure telephone conversation. Secure voice calls are supported over the Internet, or through a direct modem-to-modem connection, or even over AppleTalk networks."

Finally, the NY Times solves the Is It Really the Millennium? puzzle. "Celebrate both 2000 and 2001. To be safe, celebrate at both 7 p.m. and midnight. Celebrate early. Celebrate often."

NY Times: An Encyclopedic Mirror of What? "For Britannica, though, the greatest risk may be not in technological excess, but in Internet access. If income depends on e-commerce, will emphases change to court clicks? Will as many resources be devoted to a rarely consulted scholarly entry on, say, Baroque opera as to a popular and commercially supported entry on, say, rock music?"

Red Herring: Drilling Deeper into Transmeta. "With Transmeta's chip technology -- which translates software written for Intel's x86 architecture to Transmeta's native P95 architecture -- a handheld device would be able to run Windows CE applications without using Microsoft's OS or Intel's chips."
