Now blogging at diego's weblog. See you over there!

rumour pushback

So the US Media (besides Salon, that is) has finally picked up (more or less) the Private Lynch story: after not reporting the first claim that the rescue was staged, CNN now is publishing the Pentagon's denials (I haven't seen any reports whatsoever on this on any other US media outlet; then again I probably missed it. I can't believe not one of them published anything.

The BBC said that it had proof; now would be a good time to see it no?

mailing list migration and worms

Two seemingly unrelated topics? Yes. Definitely. Anyway... :)

I'm now in the process of migrating the old spaces-info and spaces-dev lists to clevercactus-info and clevercactus-dev respectively... I've found this document that explains how to do it but it's a major pain. It's not necessarily mailman's fault, seamless migration is always an issue (although mailman could make it easier...). Anyway, in the meantime I keep receiving copies of this new outlook worm that is making the rounds, good thing cactus is immune to it :). But it's really annoying, I've received more than a hundred copies of it over the weekend. Hopefully it will die down soon.

from startup to crime... in internet time

A strange story involving the Mafia with those old-fashioned squeezes for "protection" (which sounds really strange for an Internet business, but anyway...) and an entrepreneur that apparently turned to doing the same to other companies through the Internet to solve his problems.

more on social software

An interesting article by Stowe Boyd: Are you ready for social software?:

It's the opposite of project-oriented collaboration tools that places people into groups. Social software supports the desire of individuals to be pulled into groups to achieve goals. And it's coming your way.
