Robert Scoble: "Merry Christmas to all three people who read this blog." Ditto!

A Christmas baby at Gillmor's. Welcome!

Garret: "my first posts as a weblogger were downright scary. was i going to get flamed for something i said? i would write, rewrite, erase, begin again ... over and over and over until i had watered down my content to the point of making it just plain worthless." Been there too.

Listening to an NPR interview with Wolfgang Puck. He's certainly a businessperson, a restauranteur, but he's also a cook and a teacher. It's generally assumed in the software business that you need a CEO who knows little about the product and users to run your company. I've always thought this was wrong. Software is more like a restaurant. Puck serves hamburgers at Spago in Orlando (kids like them). And macaroni and cheese. But it's Puck-style, not mass-produced, with fresh ingredients and weird spices. Weird is good.

Vintage computer ads. A lost art.

Earth at Night. Visible global warming?
