He’s Back! · Mr. Safe, I mean. I in­tro­duced him in 2003 (scroll down to “Houston, We Have a Problem”) and lots of oth­ers seemed to en­joy invit­ing him to their blogs for a chat about syn­di­ca­tion pol­i­tic­s. For those for­tu­nate enough not to have no­ticed, there’s a sil­ly brouha­ha go­ing on in the RSS world. Check out Rogers Caden­head, Shel­ley Pow­ers, and Dave Win­er. Sam Ru­by had al­ready pub­lished Toss­ing Ros­es, which I thought was kind of po­lite and help­ful but re­al­ly ir­ri­tat­ed Steve Gill­mor. What a mess... clear­ly, the man for the job is Mr. Safe, so Sam brought him back.
5✭♫: Plutonian Nights · This is a track by Sun Ra from his al­bum The Lady With The Gold­en Stock­ings, record­ed around 1958 and re­leased in 1966. Sun Ra, full le­gal name “Le Sony’r Ra”, born Her­man Bloun­t, said a lot of crazy stuff and played some crazy mu­sic, some of which I like. But this isn’t crazy, it’s 4:22 of low-voiced cool funk per­fec­tion. (“5✭♫” se­ries in­tro­duc­tion here; with an ex­pla­na­tion of why the ti­tle may look bro­ken.) ...
Rails in Vancouver · It turns out they’re hold­ing what’s ad­ver­tised as “the first ev­er 100% Ru­by on Rails event in the world” right here in Van­cou­ver, April 13-14: Cana­da on Rails. I’ll go for sure. Giv­en the en­thu­si­asm that built up around that PHP piece, I’m think­ing that a com­ment sys­tem for on­go­ing is in­evitable, and maybe RoR is just the tick­et. [Snick­er... the URI of the reg­is­tra­tion page ends in .php].
