A tabs dump is when I have so many tabs left open in Safari because I thought I might blog about a page, that I can't see the new ones opening. Here it is, telegraphic style:
- The Death of the Webmaster (via Ron Lusk) -- some good points and many wrong ones. For one, the webmaster is far from being dead (am I?), only those who rely on being the technical bottleneck to keep their job will disappear. But contrary to what the author claims, things such as usability, information architecture and how to purpose content towards the web and search engines require skills (e.g. those of a webmaster) and are not taken care of by technologies. We obviously have not the same definition of a webmaster (who, to me, is not reduced to the HTML techie this guy is depicting.)
- Linked from the previous article, Personal knowledge publishing and its uses in research by Sebastien Paquet -- way less simplistic, isn't it?
- Linux Style: Geeks on the Half Shell 2.0: Cruising the New Dominion with Linus and Friends -- geeky indeed.
- MT-Blacklist 1.5 -- I haven't got any spam since a few weeks ago but, er, I haven't installed MT-Blacklist yet!
- Roland Piquepaille, Write Once, Publish Anywhere -- from HP's vision of multi-channels publishing Write Once, Publish Often. If you're interested in everything XML/XSLT, don't miss HP's Formatting Objects Authoring code.
- CNet, Group lobbies for domain buyers' privacy -- Why do I feel they are wrong? You wouldn't believe how many times I had to resort to WHOIS to find out who is behind a domain when tracking spammers or domain squatters. I strongly believe that no one should be permitted to buy an Internet domain anonymously nor hide their details from public scrutiny.
- Nvu, A complete Web Authoring System for Linux -- backed up by Lindows.com and starting from the code of Mozilla Composer, why do I feel that Daniel Glazman has something to do with this? He does! Have fun Daniel, keep up the good work. And since it's open source, may be one could compile a Mac OS X version ;-)
