A Keeper · I forgot who announced this, but KeepMedia (an organization about which I know nothing) now provides a “Featured News” feed. It’s really very good, a handful of stories once a day, from big-name publications (Business Week, The Atlantic, Esquire, USA Today, etc.) all on the same subject, usually one of the day’s hot newsbuzz things, but occasionally a bit further afield. Highly recommended.
 
Welcome Mail.app to the Party · I have on several occasions dissed the Mac OS X email client “Mail.app” fairly heavily in this space. I finally got myself smoothly integrated with the Sun VPN, and I must report that the latest release of Mail.app is now handling both my email lives (Sun and Textuality) smoothly, efficiently, and with no fuss. The spam filtering is failing a bit under the pressure, but is still pretty darn good; and the filtering and styling and threading and so on is really about all you could wish for. Another reason to think about migrating to OS X.
 
Listen To Don · That Don Box, he’s a smart guy. I’m glad to hear I’m not the only one worrying that the profoundly-good Web-Services idea is danger of being discredited by too much theory and not enough practice.
