Here are my weekly notes:
- I sort of already do this when I post my “Sleeping” update at night – Yawnlog is a social sleep tracker. There really is an app for everything!
- FriendFeed posted a really interesting entry about how they use MySQL to store schema-less data. They currently have over 250 million entries in their database, not counting metadata!
- Computerworld’s Mike Elgan called podcasting “the most underappreciated, underutilized media ever” in a new opinion piece this last week.
- What did the Internet look like in 1996? Slate took a peek this week. AOL is mentioned six times in the article, Netscape four times.
- I’m going to write about my new Netbook soon, but in the meantime, check out this article from Wired: The Netbook Effect: How Cheap Little Laptops Hit the Big Time.
- Another great essay from Paul Graham: Can You Buy a Silicon Valley? Maybe. Don Dodge has some good discussion of the idea here.
- Looks like I need to have a blogging evening/day – my backlog of posts is getting awfully long!
