I’ve gotten two really well written responses to my Amazon question and rant.(See the entries from the 9th and 10th.) I think I understand now why people got upset about it. Amazon is viewed by the Internet community as a better bookstore. A community bookstore that takes our suggestions as well as its own. People didn’t expect them to be taking money for those spots/recommendations without owning up. This method of doing business, while not completely unethical in this day and age, was misleading. I think the people in our community expected better.
Bump made CamWorld’s Weblog listing. CamWorld is one of the real premium Weblogs in my opinion.(There seems to be no shortage of these types of sites and the number is growing every day.) I like the design of the page too, easy to read and well developed. He seems to update on a regular basis too
I think Bump 3.0 might be coming down the pike soon. It’s a great release for me to redesign the site, and I obviously could do better. I have two other independent Web projects lurking, and I hope that I can spin some of them this weekend too.
Clinton Acquitted Decisively: No Majority for Either Charge (New York Times)
I have chosen to not address these proceedings before now on this page for a variety of reasons. I was really angry about the way the business was being conducted. I’m glad that a decision has been made, wish that things hadn’t dragged out so long. Forgetting about President Clinton for the moment, there are some political wounds that need to be addressed. We need to move on.
They moved Scripting News over to Frontier 6.0 today. Userland continues to move forward. I think they have a real solid direction, and it fits with the dynamic way the industry is moving perfectly.
Builder.com has a great forum running What do you love about your job? . I read through a bunch of these. I have to say that, for me, I know I’ll never have it all mastered. It moves faster than anyone can to keep up. There is nothing boring about that.
