I work at the IBM Austin Research Lab on various things vaguely related to power-aware system software. When I was there as an intern in summer 2000 I learned much about the Linux kernel and -EHUBRIS. I wish I had more time to work on free software, but life is like that.

You won't find many diary entries here, because I already have a weblog. I don't attempt to read every journal entry posted on Advogato looking for replies to my journal entries (which in fact seems like a ridiculous idea), so use more direct means if you want to make me aware of a reply.

Syndication: RSS 2.0

Re the latest article:

I think the ideas of a single, globally-replicated Usenet and massive multi-server IRC networks are out of touch with today's Internet. Both Usenet and IRC could be massively simplified if there were a lot of independent servers hosting disjoint groups/channels, just like the Web. (This isn't my idea, but I don't remember where it came from.) Sure you have the occasional slashdottings and outages, but you avoid a lot of complexity and waste.

So what should be done about RSS? The existing Web proxy infrastructure should help, but maybe for some people it isn't helping enough. (Consider this: My RSS channel probably gets about 2x as many hits/day as all the other pages on my weblog combined. Granted, the RSS hits don't use much bandwidth thanks to ETags.) I'm tempted to suggest Astrolabe/NewsWire, but it looks even more complex than NNTP. UserLand defined a notification system for RSS, but it's probably useless for the 99.9999999% of the Internet that's now behind NATs.

I didn't post this as a comment on the article since it's mostly just uninformed ranting. :-)

I am not seeing any interface to rate diaries, but I am logged in. Update: Oh, silly me; it's in the last place I would look fir it.

pkiforum is not a person, or at least doesn't claim to be. It's not even a cat. It seems weird.
