Various and Sundry

:: It’s one of those days where it’s hard to keep up. I read a post on Geoff’s site that led to comments from Lucas about Textile – A Humane Web Generator, and my brain exploded. It’s like, my brain couldn’t handle one more piece of new, state-of-the-art, cutting-edge blogging/HTML/coding technology today.

:: Tonight I need to rehearse for a Saturday, May 3rd, concert, and refresh my memory about Blogger for an upcoming presentation in May. I’ve done neither yet.

:: Read this post mortem on Napster.

:: Karlin Lillington follows up her interview with William Gibson with this incredible post that links to a 1967 CBC broadcast called Yorkville: Hippie Haven – Yorkville was Canada’s equivalent to Haight-Ashbury in San Francisco at the time. It’s a 14-minute clip, but worth watching. A 19-year old Bill Gibson appears at the beginning and the end of the broadcast – he speaks over top of scenes of him walking about Yorkville. The CBC page notes that the show’s featured hippie, Bill Gibson, is none other than the author of the classic 1984 cyberpunk novel Neuromancer, and the man who coined the term “cyberspace.”

:: Dear Dirtbag in St Louis: Please stop making intrusion attempts to my machine. Thank you.
