Some notes are on Scripting News, including an agenda that is very different than that which is posted below.
- Hank Barry will be at tonight’s meeting
- Attention members of the disbanded Jay McCarthy fan club: Headlining this meeting will be Jay McCarthy as he demonstrates how he blogs. Unlike some of us, he does his blogging by hand and probably has wri tten his own blogging software and stuff. That’s one reason why many of us what to see how he does it. (More of us might want to find out how he reads the 1001+ blogs in his aggregator, but there might not be enough time for that.)
His demo did not happen on 1/15 as planned.
- j still wonders if people can talk about how they decide what to blog/where they get inspiration, as well as showing the technical aspects of what they do.
- j’s notes of Je’s blogging demo
- Perhaps someone will talk about RSS Winterfest, which happens Wednesday and Thursday and features Dave Winer as a guest speaker.
- j wants to talk about her RSS article.
- Blogging Centers
- Michael will demo his Dreamweaver / Manilla blogging
- Dave talks about inclusion in Channel Z
- Talk more about Salons
- Where are we going to eat?
- We ate at the Border Cafe on the 15th.
- Rumor has it Dave’s in the mood for Indian again.
- We’re headed to Cambridge Common, if they can accommodate 15 people.
Some reminders about audio for the Webcast: it’s difficult to hear an yone when music is playing (except Dave ’cause he projects his voice well). Actually, it’s difficult to hear m any people because there’s only one mic. There might be a movement afoot to get more mics. If you’re speaking at the meeting, it’ll help peopl e listening to the Webcast if you can project your voice, especially if you’re the kind of person who talks qui etly normally or you’re sitting far from the mic on the t able. I suppose, if you don’t want to be heard over the Internet, speak softly. (No o ne may see the big stick you carry, either, because there’s no video with the Webcast.) And if you’re giving a URL or visiting a Web site, saying the URL slowly will help those elsewhere follow along.
