Hurricane Katrina Blog , Wiki and Communications
Didn't want to re-invent this announcement, so picked it off Zigzackly:
"http://www.katrinahelp.info is the URL for a wiki started by some members of the TsunamiHelp Blog and Wiki team. The group has put together a page that aggregates several blog feeds, and a set of links to individual blogs.
The Katrinahelp blog's up too ... volunteers and those with information please do contact email@example.com.

Today is ...... .
Nir Ofir, an Israeli Blogger thought it up:
"Have you ever noticed that the date 3108 (August 31st) looks like the word "Blog"? I have noticed it when I was in the first Blog conference that was held in Israel and I doodled it on a paper. On that day I started to roll an idea that I hope would become a global tradition."
I wish I could read blogs in different languages - Korean, Chinese, Japanese, other Asian languages, and European languages, but since I am illiterate in that respect, here are five blogs written in English that I've recently come across that I found interesting :
- Jelena Selin, a citizen of Europe, has an evocative blog, Thinking Garden. She doesn't blog very often, yet when she does, I catch myself spending time mulling over many of her posts.
- Aparna Ray, from Kolkatta, India who is a friend and has started a limerick blog, News in Limerick, one if not more for each day around news and current events in India and around the world. Fun !
- Jeremy Wagstaff's Loose Wire - a blog about all things technology and more. Jeremy's a British journalist with the WSJ, based in Jakarta and would-be author of a non-fiction book on the fall of President Suharto.
Happy BlogDay2005 !
