The producers of "Gilligan's Island" are teaming with the producers of the "The Bachelor" and "The Bachelorette" to bring you The Real Gilligan's Island.

This all-new version of the classic sitcom will feature real life versions of the original show's characters: a real-life skipper, first mate, millionaire couple, movie star, professor and Kansas farm girl. And one of them could be you!

Life imitates art imitates life.

I was surprised to find that a new aggregator Dave pointed to is also available for the mac, albeit in beta and lacking some of the cool features just announced in the latest windows update.

It's concept is simple and efficient. A single-pane aggregator that displays the information in an outline.

It feels reasonably responsive and easy to navigate, it has some keyboard support for users like me, who reach for the mouse as little as possible.

The interface forces you to create collections of weblogs and other RSS sources, so each node (represented by a folder icon) can contain any number of feeds. Upon first use, the program asks if you want it to auto configure several feeds. Each folder keeps track of the number of updated feeds within and displays that number.

It would be nice to have new feeds hoisted to the top of the outline, bumping the previous #1 story down a notch, just like weblog posts.

I couldn't find a way to import my OPML subscription file, but the subscription wizard does autodiscovery and offers several options for detecting new content.

Watch Lists allow for filtering new items based on keywords. Nifty!

The mac version recognizes enclosures, which is great, but there's now download button. ofcourse I'd really like the program to download these in the backgound, preferrably overnight. Would be nice in combination with a Watch List.

This may look like a review, but it isn't, it's an excited user's request list :)

In an interview broadcast on BBC radio, Janis Karpinski, the U.S. general in charge of Abu Ghraib prison in Iraq was told by a military intelligence commander that detainees should be treated like dogs. You can hear parts of the interview here.

Je kan altijd op Jaggle rekenen voor een leuke link, zoals deze video van de training van Die Mannshaft.

Nora is een nederlandse, en zoekt de koopjes op. Ze is tevreden over de LaPaay service en dat vinden we mooi!

Gast vanmorgen was Peter van Der Vorst, productent, presentator en de man die ooit eens Maxima stalkte in NY achter een vuilnis bak :)

The BBC is running a story about weblogs in schools. Nice to see Peter Ford and I influenced a few folks when we started at the British School of Amsterdam 3 years ago.
