Wow. Today’s been a busy day for me, and it’s raining interesting topics. Here’s just a very short list in no particular order; hopefully at least one of them is still news to you.

The folks at Movable Type announce TypePad, a Blogger competitor. Initial comments are very positive.

O’Reilly’s Emerging Technology Conference 2003 has started… wish I were there!

Cory Doctorow of Boing Boing fame is collaborating on a short story called “Unwirer” with Charlie Stross; they’re blogging chapter by chapter and accepting comments. No time as yet to do more than glance through it, but it’s an interesting experiment.

Must find time to glance through the Internation String Figures Association‘s website. String figures have fascinated me since early childhood.
