Roller Redux · Which is to say, Roller 2.0 has shipped. Lots of new stuff, and any­thing that can hold up un­der the blogs.­sun.­com load is pret­ty well battle-tested. I won­der if there are any oth­er freely-downloadable blog­ging en­gines (WordPress may­be?) get­ting as much full-time ded­i­cat­ed at­ten­tion.
 
Giving Thanks · This is the day where those of us around the world who are in the US-centric high tech busi­ness, but not Amer­i­can­s, give thanks for the fact that our phones are silent and for the cer­tain­ty that no ma­jor high-tech an­nounce­ments or ini­tia­tives will oc­cur. Face­tious­ness aside, this is, as Dan Gill­mor says, America’s best hol­i­day. There’s a lot to be said for a ma­jor civic cel­e­bra­tion that has noth­ing to do with theologically-significant births or deaths that hap­pened mil­len­nia ago in the Mid­dle East. Here’s a charm­ing, very per­son­al, small-scale nar­ra­tive about remembering—and, im­plic­it­ly, giv­ing thanks.
