The Ten Thousand Year Blog
Webjots that pickled my fancy from July 2002 (and maybe deeper into the past) until today, whenever now is, until beyond tomorrow, whenever that may come. Electronic Records and Digital Preservation is now a category. Blogroll Me!

> Peek at the new Ten Thousand Year Blog (Squishdot)
A peek at the, hopefully, new Ten Thousand Year Blog. I'm not sure what version the RSS feed is, but I think it's 1.0. It is valid as you'll see from this link via the RSS Validator (Mark Pilgrim and Sam Ruby)
> RSS feed on The Zen of Portalship

Heck, yeah, that's darned cool! So now at least I know that even though the RDF doesn't validate as RSS 1.0, tacking on the RSS suffix does permit me to syndicate site content, which means others can do so as well. Next experiment is to see if I can Blogroll to The Zen of Portalship. The RSS feed is 0.91 (the Netscape RDF-based one).

Ok, let's see if blogging my own RSS feed from The Zen of Portalship works!
> Thank you from me to you my readers!
A big thank you to those who continue to link to and comment on my wiki article for Searcher magazine (April 2003). Also, thanks to those who've utilized the copy of the resource list I pulled together for a presentation I gave on blogs, RSS and wikis to a handful of librarians and information technologists in and outside the British Columbia government. The list is also available at on my public Zwiki ( I will be integrating the two versions and deleting the one at the Searchers ZWiki (but leave a link pointing to the current version). Thanks to those of you who annotated the Searchers' ZWiki one. It's not intended to be a canonical list, just a few sites that interested me, and some explanatory text based on my very limited knowledge of this stuff.

> Welcome to

My new domain ( is up and running. Not much on the home page. I've installed a public Zwiki and will move content from to The shared hosting service I'm on has some limitations that affect the use of the Zope Content Management Framework as expressed in the default CMF Site and some of the 3rd party tools such as the CMFWeblog Tool. For example, RPCAuth is required to run the CMFWeblog Tool, but the owner is unwilling to install RPCAuth for the shared hosting service.

I've now learned that Zope has XML-RPC built in through a Python library called and xml, so we'll see how successful I'll be at pretending to be a programmer!
