NOTE: I'll be putting notes from my panel appearance at, and other stuff about, the Northern Voice blogging conference onto a page you can find at penmachine.com/voice. Right now that URL links to an older post of mine, but I will update it after the conference itself.
- The Northern Voice conference on February 19, 2005 (at which I'm a panelist) has an events page where anyone can add and edit information about things happening around, but outside, the conference itself (ski trips, walkabouts, dinners, etc.).
- What responsibility do software developers have for their users' data, especially when they charge for software labeled "beta," and the user in question is using the product in an unusual way? (UPDATE: Dori's position is clear on this matter, and Mary, the original poster, follows up along with her readers.)
- Evaluating content management systems (CMSs). Are any open-source or commercial CMSs yet ready for real-world use by non-technical people?
- Also from the same site, the gingerbread CPU. Follow the links for some even crazier stuff.
- "The majority [of weblogs] are written for [...] nanoaudiences of known associates. The 'typical blog is written by a teenage girl who uses it twice a month to update her friends and classmates on happenings in her life.' (She also tends to type everything in lowercase, using capitals FOR EMPHASIS ONLY.)"
