Trusting that "thanks" is not bad form in weblogging, ...

I'll say thanks to Dave for the Scripting News link. I appreciate it.

I'm also interested in where the music business is headed, although for slightly different reasons. Smarter folk than I will figure out the business issues and the technology issues that reward creative people for developing great art, music, books, plays, movies, etc.

I'm interested in the pace of change and the types of changes that will allow my selections of music to play through a serious stereo system. iPods, Walkmen and assorted PC speaker systems aren't what I have in mind. I want to use a fairly high-end audio system without taking every MP3 to a CD burner. We should be able to feed a stereo system from a server.

What's the RSS story at Movable Type?

I've been prowling the weblog world today. As I've mentioned before, I find a lot of consistency in the design and look-and-feel of Blogger sites, Movable Type sites and Radio sites. I'm sure a lot of this has to do with available themes/templates.

I'm also noticing that few Movable Type sites have xml icons or 'rss syndication links.' Can anyone explain this? Does Movable Type offer any type of aggregator for reading weblogs or keeping up with news sources? These questions are NOT about Movable Type so much as they are about being able to keep up with/subscribe to a cross-section of weblogs.

Can any teleco thrive again?

WorldCom shares plunge, drag down telecoms [IDG InfoWorld]

This could get interesting sooner rather than later. At 11:00a.m. ET tomorrow, Level 3 Communications, Inc. will hold its conference call to cover 1Q2002. Shareholders expect to get the company's press release prior to the conference call. Revenue is on everyone's minds. We'll see whether or not a small company like Level 3 is able to pick up market share.

Audiophiles that blog?

In the distant past I was an audiophile. If reading about the latest tweaks, gear and notions about what sounds good counts, I'm still an audiophile. I've never used the internet to look for audiophile sites or to look at the popular magazine sites - stereophilethe absolute sound, etc.

My interest today is in building a nice sounding system around MP3 files and a server that could behave like a jukebox. The server as a member of a component stereo system is fairly new. Anyone doing this? Any clues, tips or weblogs out there?

Andy's Directory of Radio Userland Resources is pretty inclusive!

Study Guide. I have added a little text to the Study Guide, explaining the purpose. Still more work to do there. Also, Jeremy Bowers has posted another directory of resources - check it out! I will be working with his material as well. [Ruminations News]

All Radio documentation is welcome!

After some discussion on the Radio UserLand discussion group yesterday, I have started a new category in the directory called Study Guide. This subdirectory contains the current listings for the following categories: Developer Information, Frequently Asked Questions, Getting Started with Radio UserLand, Tips, and Tutorials. I am going to take a shot at organizing this and other material that I find to provide an easier-to-use guide to learning Radio UserLand, based on the current web-based documentation available. Any suggestions for content or organization are welcome. [Andy Sylvester's Radio Weblog]

Another term to learn - deep linking!
