I keep thinking about …

I keep thinking about the Microsoft ruling. If the future of home and office computing lies in the hands of software developers, as I said yesterday, I’m curious to hear what the general computer using public thinks. I’ve read dozens upon dozens of articles about what the software industry thinks of the ruling, but haven’t heard a peep out of the general public. Surely, some enterprising newspaper or magazine has taken to the streets and asked the public. Send me links.

Dave Winer has an interesting proposal — get Microsoft to support the Mozilla browser development as part of a settlement with the government. Hmmm, interesting. I think it goes much deeper than that, though. Microsoft has screwed over enough developers in the past that it’s doubtful developers will want to work with Microsoft, even if the project was open source. Microsoft has a bad reputation for a reason. Until they change their fundamental business practices, many developers will probably refuse to work with them.

I’m wearing a bright orange shirt today. Just thought you’d like to know. Taylor sent me a cease and desist letter regarding my unauthorized wearing of “a bright orange shirt.” Heh! My coworkers are going to complain if I’m forced to remove my shirt.

An interesting look at how the NY Times is dealing with the Internet Explorer cookie bug.

I’m addicted to Japanese junk food. I can’t help it. It’s just so different from American junk food, and reminds me of the years I spent as a kid eating British candy. Today I’m eating something called Pocky (made by Glico), which are long biscuit sticks covered with cream fudge. Mmmm, delicious.
