Atom Bank Shot

Atom Bank Shot:

  1. I installed the experimental Atom Publishing Protocol Server in in my local WordPress test install.
  2. Posted a entry using curl to talk to WordPress.
  3. Used hAtom2Atom.xsl to grab the embedded hAtom from the Sandbox themed blog.
  4. Read the posted entry in NetNewsWire.

Round trip.

My colleague Bill is making progress publishing to WordPress with the Atom protocol. Deeje, meet Bill.

Ryoji Ikeda: C4I

Dear Mr. Ryoji Ikeda:

Derek and I saw C^4I at the California Theatre. While I can appreciate your pieces as conceptual existential statements, I wonder if it was necessary to run your exhibit at over 85DB? Is that the major feature of these two pieces? Would your art still be art to you if it weren’t hurting the audience? I know you had some cool data driven visuals and audio, but the volume was loud enough to distract me from all other contemplation and comprehension of your works… it seemed to defeat the purpose for me.

I’ll overlook your attempt to make me deaf this time. If you try to repeat this kind of dangerous shit again in the future, I’ll be storming the theatre with a big box of 30DB foam ear plugs so that everyone can at least have the opportunity to experience your art without needing a hearing aide the next day.

Now that my ears have stopped bleeding and are starting to scab over, I recognize your provocation and accept your challenge. A battle of style, ok? See you in san jose in two years… Bring something other than something painfully loud; I will.

Love,
-steve cooley

P.S. California theatre, you’re not off the hook. I’ll be talking to you in person.

MySQL Camp is Coming

MySQL Camp is Coming:

200608031435Jay scooped me on the news but he’s right – we’re organizing a MySQL camp in the spirit of Barcamp.

One of the great things about living in the bay area is that that there are a lot of smart geeks here. Generally speaking, most of the smart guys in MySQL work either for MySQL AB or one of the big Web 2.0 shops like Facebook or Yahoo. This should give everyone the opportunity to leave their cubicles and share all their tricks with the whole community.

We’re also going to be doing this the right way which means that we’re going to expect people to lead their own sections and contribute in some way shape or form. This isn’t just another top-down conference where sessions are approved by a committee.

One great piece of news is that MySQL AB is really excited about the opportunity to do this and will be sending a number of core MySQL hackers to discuss MySQL internals.

We’re currently trying to shoot for Nov 10 through 12.

If you’re able to hook us up with a venue for around 100 people with individual rooms for about 5 concurrent sessions please send me an email.

I’ll provide a link to the wiki as soon as its setup.

Count me in!

Wordcamp 2006!

Wordcamp’s kind of a mixed bag so far (1/2 way through), but the good stuff’s been pretty good, and the bad stuff’s been mostly humorous, so… thumbs up. :)
