  • Oh, actually it wasn't Ray Ozzie, but my fellow Dane, Thomas Madsen-Mygdal who said: "Why do we take for granted that everything should be closed? What if we started taking for granted that everything should be open? Instead of asking: "why should we be open?" started asking: "why should we be closed?"... This goes for software, information, organizations, etc. I'm not suggesting that everything should be open - just that we considered everything to be open as default and take the discussion from there".

  • I find the idea of doing one's work out in the open very intriguing. "Working Publically" as Andrius Kulikauskas of the Minciu Sodas Laboratory has called it.

  • Love is the Killer App says Tim Sanders, Yahoo Senior Exec. Wow! Chris Corrigan says this about it: "Sanders draws a very solid connection between being motivated by love and structuring your operations in a non-hierarchical way to facilitate those values. In fact the case is so compelling that one could even look at highly structured hierarcies and draw the conclusion that love has no place there." Indeed.

  • Note to self: I need to start committing to using the current web standards for my sites. In particular, structuring the content of pages in XHTML and using CSS to manipulate the look of them. Structure of the Content separate from the Visual Presentation. Wired just did it. I'm embarrassed to notice that my HTML code mostly looks like it did 6 year ago. ..Oh, I discovered Style Master. It is going to be easier than I thought.

  • If you have a lot of bandwidth and want to see some stunning Flash eye candy, check out Who'sWe. Very talented people. I'm very attracted to Flash. I just don't yet know how it really is going to be congruent with consistent, userfriendly websites.

    these improvements on webdesign. LET US KNOW your experience with Style Master. It would be good to have an NCN tutorial how to create web pages. Most of this is really still mumbo- jumbo to me.

    I'm my newslog I'm sometimes tethering between whether I should speak technically about the things I actually do, or I should make it all sort of entry level. I guess I'm sort of in-between.

    I actually wrote a whole program for designing webpages without having to know the actual HTML codes. It is called Merlin's Studio. Maybe I'll integrate it somewhere in NCN so one could make one's own pages from scratch.
