What kind of silly blog is this? Finding time.

It seems the real bloggers of the world -- well, at least the ones that get read or have their URLs forwarded from friend to friend to colleague to associate -- post something new nearly every day. Too few postings and people aren't interested. Too many, and the quality clearly suffers. So there is a sweet spot in there someplace.

But where do they find the time?

Web service vertical integration

I was chatting with Allie, the mad genius behind pajunas interactive the other evening, and she mentioned her search for a second network operations center for her business. Not that the current data center where her servers are located is bad (they're ISO-9000 and ex-military perfectionists, really), but rather nobody is perfect and contingencies are always good to plan for. I got to thinking about the whole end to end business of providing web content to end users.


I don't know if the lack of comments up to this point was because nobody cared, or because of a software problem. I found the software problem myself when I tried to leave my own comment. I guess that's what happens when one uses the tip of the development branch of software just before the 4.7 release of Drupal. I've now upgraded to 4.7, and all appears well, including the comments.

So perhaps someone will do that. Or not. :-) This is admittedly among the least exciting blogs on the planet.

More Scientific Truth in Product Warning Labels

by Susan Hewitt and Edward Subitzky, from The Journal of Irreproducible Results, vol. 36, #1. Reproduced with permission.

As scientists and concerned citizens, we applaud the recent trend towards legislation that requires the prominent placing of warnings on products that present hazards to the general public. Yet we must also offer the the cautionary thought that such warnings, however well-intentioned, merely scratch the surface of what is really necessary in this important area. This is especially true in light of the findings of 20th century physics.
