Went to Seattle with Sierra this weekend. Hung out with her parents and brother and went hiking with her dad and recorded it with the "My Tracks" Android app, which let me upload it to Google Maps: the 7.6 mile Hansville hike. Good hike & good app.

Back to SF tonight.

Brett and I made a bunch of progress on PubSubHubbub today. Bunch of new docs, two Perl modules, protocol clarifications & spec cleanup, hub server updates, etc.

If you haven't read about it, or it's been awhile, I encourage you to go check it out.

We're looking for help with client libraries and general involvement if you have any time! Join the list and claim a language / CMS.

Newspaper Death

When I read blogs, I'm more tolerant to grammatical mistakes. But the AP? C'mon:



At his news conference Obama said he didn't think he did much damage to U.S. security or interests by shaking the hand of Chavez, whose country has a defense budget about one-six hundredth the size of the United States, and depends upon it's oil reserves for solvency.

(emphasisze mine)

Seriously, AP editors? Seriously, Steven R. Hurst?

Maybe the newspapers should die.

After 5 nights in lovely Barcelona and a night in Casablanca, Sierra and I are currently in Marrakesh at the most ridiculous hotel I've ever seen.

Marrakesh is ridiculous(ly awesome) from what I've seen. Time to go see more. And get foods. Foooood.

P.S. Everything is in Arabic and French. I speak neither of these languages, but I understand the French letters and a lot of the words. I know like 5 French phrases. They don't get me very far.

Tessa liked my proposal for birthday bar hopping beginning by meeting at my house with some drunken Pictionary, which she calls "Pictiondrunkery".

But yeah --- if I know you and/or you've ever been over to my house, come by tonight. We'll be drinking and playing board games while people arrive between 7 and 9 or so, and then head out after that.
