Wow.  BlogChat is Just Plain Cool

If you haven't seen Brent Ashley's BlogChat, go to or to  Right now (5:01 est) he has 3 people live chatting right in line with this blog.  Just plain wow. 

Disclaimer: Brent is a friend and we're coding up some cool RSS stuff together but this is still cool.  I've never seen it with more than two people live before and even just three brings a feeling of the blog being a live place, not a static page.  It's a feeling that BlogSpace is where I live not just where I write.

Thanks Brent!  Add yimgoogle as a Instant Messenger Friend in Yahoo IM!

From Brent at "Add yimgoogle to your IM Friends list and send it a query.  It Googles it!"  Here you go:

Brent's #1 for Remote Scripting (his wicked cool JavaScript stuff) and I, Scott Johnson, am, today, the #1 Scott Johnson on the net.

If You Are Writing a Programming Book !

I just bought the PHP Developer's Cookbook by Hughes and Zmievski and, Guys, Where the frack*** do I download the code?  There's no cd and I have been all through the table of contents w/o seeing anything about it.  Bloody well frustrating and as good as this book is I won't recommend it to someone else without that...

Weblog Changes Added Today

Since it's now official that I'm writing chapters on Radio for O'Reilly, I thought it was appropriate for me to upgrade my Radio template wth the following code snippet (new stuff in bold):

          <td align="center" valign="top" width="1"> 
            <%radio.weblog.drawcalendar ()%><BR>
<!-- <CENTER><B>Recent Posts!</B></CENTER> --><BR>
<%radio.macros.recentTitledBlogPosts (maxPosts:50,
maxTitleLength:50, cellSpacing:5)%><BR><BR>
< (searchTerm:"Scott Johnson")%><BR>

Very cool stuff.  I'll add it to the Radio FAQ and such shortly. Please note that all of my Radio writings remain available even though I'm now "commercial".

Radio as a Specification Tool

Well I just wrote my first technical specification for a team development project using Radio for a fast paced project with team members located here:

  • Boston (Me)
  • Boston (Designer)
  • Canada (Algorithms)
  • System Components (Bombay)

It'll be interesting to see how it works.  3 out of 4 of us are bloggers across two different platforms (Radio and Movable Type).

Quick Impressions

  • It's fast and that's good
  • The lack of formatting helps me focus on the content not the look and feel
  • Since it's in a data center already I can just link to it in an email and not worry about sending content which is cool
  • I'm pleased.  Specs always, always, always is about as pleasant as, well, eating dried toads so getting out a simple spec for the application level help system in about 1/2 hour was great.  Not worrying about formatting and emailing out a word file was even better
