I absolutely respect Lane. Great site, great writing, and he seemed like a really nice intelligent guy in my too limited contact with him at SXSW.(Truth be known I was a little intimidated by the Deep Leap posse. They are a really talented bunch.) I do not, however, think that this site could be quantified as “the bare minimum of creativity.” I, however, have been wrong about these things before.

So I bought a Palm VII yesterday. I know what you are thinking: “But that has the same amount of RAM as your Palm V.” I know, but I couldn’t help myself. I charged up the transmitter last night and activated it. There are a lot more apps for it than I had originally thought, and there are ways to view live Web content despite the constricting “Web clipping” setup.
I’ll let you know how I make out.
I can already tell after just using it on a live site for about an hour that Blogger is only going to feed my blogging addiction. I can pound away and not worry about uploading and editing the raw HTML every time I want to add something to my site. I can tell that they have lots of other features to deploy that they haven’t yet.
I haven’t forgoteen about my SXSW pictures. I just got pulled away by the need to redesign here.
