People are still focusing, imho incorrectly, on the big lies in the Kelly press conference, and missing the fact that the man doesn't know his job or his place, and at least doesn't have the Constitution frontmost in his mind, at worst -- knows what it means and has no intention of abiding by it. I'm not a lawyer, but I know we can question generals, and that whether or not you have a Gold Star family in your circle of friends has no bearing on your ability to ask questions of the government. It could be that it just hasn't sunk in yet with Mr Kelly that he is the government now, and that gives him special responsibilities. It would be one thing if he were a retired general spouting off in his dotage, but that's not who Kelly is. He's the Chief of Staff in the White House and his view of the world is much like the general played by Jack Nicholson in A Few Good Men. Unlike Trump he is trained to control. And so far there hasn't been much pushback from others in the military. In their silence, confirmation that the Constitution and our form of government, is in question.

I could see Kelly launching a first strike at N Korea because they weren't properly respecting some insane thing he's clutching for security.

10/21/2017 8:32:39 AM


Thank you. I needed that slap in the face. I was starting to beginning to almost thinking about possibly someday maybe under some circumstances rooting for them. Not gonna happen.

14 - The thing about impeachment

It's just like the Electoral College, and the RNC before it. Letting the process go forward is always easier and safer than standing in its way. Maybe someone else will do it. But each time we don't do the hard thing, it'll be harder the next time. We'll look back and say "if only we had.." This isn't the first time. We will look back on this moment too as a time when it would have been much easier to put a stop to Trump.

10/21/2017 11:00:36 AM

15 - The military is split

We found out something pretty horrifying in the last couple of days, and it's important to absorb it before it passes in whatever controversy comes up next.

We saw the actual personality of the White House Chief of Staff for the first time. He's a general. And he's one of the most powerful people in civilian oversight of the military. Maybe second only to the president. And he doesn't believe in the Constitution.

He walked all over the First Amendment in his presser. There must be others in the military that see this (they watch TV too). So now we have two factions, one that believes in the Constitution and civilian oversight, and the other that doesn't. And it appears that the one that doesn't has vastly more power than the others. It's in the White House.

Kelly is not a stupid man. He couldn't be where he is if he was. He knows what he said and did, and the message not only went out to the public, it went out to the military. It signaled in ways that can't be signaled through the chain of command, how the country is now being governed. So there's a pretty good chance we're on the other side of a military takeover. Seems almost tautological. It's visible now, if you believe what you saw on TV, and is likely to become more visible.

BTW, I also don't think it's a coincidence that both Obama and Bush spoke yesterday, saying basically the same thing. We are not a fascist country. I suspect they were also talking to the military.

10/21/2017 10:37:17 AM


Good morning. I'm back in NY. Gorgeous fall weather. Starting to fill in my to-do list.

10/20/2017 10:53:50 AM


Tom Steyer is funding a $10 million campaign to impeach Trump.

10/20/2017 10:20:56 PM


Trump claims his administration has accomplished more in its first nine months than any previous presidency. How foolish, he hasn't passed any laws. But there's an argument to be made that it's true. Read about the dismantling of the EPA and the State Department, and realize how long it will take to bring them back. Some people feel it's for the best that the US not have any controls on pollution or have any foreign presence. For them these are accomplishments. Trump may not know or care about what they're doing, that doesn't mean it's not part of a plan, that the Kochs and Mercers aren't intelligently looting the government. Things are happening faster than people may realize.

10/20/2017 2:33:50 PM


How you know what the "Marine general" said is indefensible. And they're all violating their oath to uphold and defend the Constitution.

20 - Mr Mercedes is very good

I finished binge-watching the Mr Mercedes TV series on the flight back from Denver yesterday, and man it was good. At the same level as Breaking Bad, only more bizarre. The acting was great. I thought the story from Stephen King they had to work with was so-so, that's why I expected the TV series to drift and get sappy, because that's what happened (imho) in the novel. But it didn't happen and I think I know why. The writer of the teleplay was Dennis Lehane who himself is a fine novelist, author of Mystic River and Shutter Island, two great movies. He also wrote for The Wire.

In Mr Mercedes Lehane developed King's story into a 10-hour movie that would have been fine without the gore and violence, but it made it better, because it was delivered with humor and was outrageous and thrilling, on the same level as The Shining or Carrie.

Even the computer stuff mostly made sense (in the novel it didn't, King doesn't really understand computers imho). There was even some good Mac humor in the story! How about that.

Lehane found the thread in the King novel that worked, he changed a couple of things, and let the plot develop at a good pace, and the characters were fun, entertaining, cute, motivated, lovely and brave, and most important, believable. I loved it. Highly recommended if you like this kind of thing.

Update: The NYT review says there were three great writers working on the show.

21 - RSS and podcasting

While I was vacationing in Taos, with a very slow Internet connection and a slowed-down mind, I wrote a Twitter thread saying I was happy about podcasting, proud of how far it had come, and how many people's lives it was enriching, and because it was open and had no limits it didn't have the problems of platforms that were created roughly at the same time, platforms that are corporate and silo'd, like Twitter and Facebook.

I had just driven a full day from Denver to Taos and had listened to a bunch of podcasts, more than I had in one day since my cross-country drives in the mid-2000s. Back then there wasn't very much podcasting and since then it has boomed, several times.

My thread drew a comment from Jason Rowley, a writer at Crunchbase. "It’s almost like the RSS protocol finally found its killer app. Not in distributing text, but mp3s." I know he was being positive, but the comment was wrong from a couple of perspectives.

I promised an explanation, so here goes.

  • First, people focus on the connection between RSS and podcasting, but it's deep technology, most people, users and creators, aren't aware of the connection. That part of the bootstrap, writing the spec, implementing an authoring tool and adding the feature to my RSS reader, took a couple of days at most. The hard part was figuring out how to get people to do it! It wasn't a matter of "build it and they will come." It was a totally different story, like Tom Sawyer and the whitewashed fence.
  • Second, RSS was already well on its way when we started up podasting, and would have thrived even if it had not come about. In hindsight the killer app for RSS was the New York Times. Once we had them on board, in April 2002, with daily updates to their feeds, it built out to a news network that to this day is delivering far better results for news consumers than anything else, even Twitter or Facebook. True, most people don't get their news directly from RSS feeds. But the people who really care about news do.

RSS didn't need a killer app, it already had one. And RSS as a basis for podcasting, was essential to the bootstrap, but it was not the hard part. For that, we needed a bit of yeast to get the bread to rise. That came, as far as I'm concerned, from Chris Lydon, myself and then Adam Curry. At that point, we had enough examples for people to get the idea that they could do it too.

Jason's well-intentioned understanding of how podcasting came to be, and what role RSS plays in today's news ecosystem is the one many people have, but it is wrong. Every time I see it I try to correct it. It's important because people who want to follow in the footsteps of RSS and podcasting, and develop open technologies, should know that there's more to it than technology. Without compelling content, that gets other people to do it, you don't even have a good demo.

I did a podcast about this in 2015, if you want more of the background.

10/20/2017 11:04:51 AM


Checking in from Colorado. My stay in New Mexico was very refreshing. Tomorrow, back to NYC to complete my next product ship. This one has nothing to do with web publishing, it's something new that imho shouldn't be. 🚀

Got a notice from NY State that I've been automatically re-enrolled in my ACA-based health insurance. Some parts of the system are working.

Suggestion: Choose to not be offended, at least once a day.

10/17/2017 4:55:49 PM


What if we lose the First Amendment? It's a serious question that deserves serious thought. All the reporting about stamping out fake news on Facebook amounts to suppressing speech. It can't be done without suppressing the First Amendment. And since the current govt is run by this fascist, you should expect that news would omit stories about Puerto Rico, govt sabotage of health care, even the Harvey Weinstein story might not have come out considering how much El Presidenté has to hide.

10/17/2017 9:53:09 AM


Sometimes serendipity is worth noting. I was posting a link to this fantastic piece by Jon Chait about the last act of John McCain's political career. The software I use, a linkblogging tool I wrote called Radio3, presents a random slogan above the edit box. The slogan was especially appropriate to the piece. Finally, hopefully before it's too late, McCain-the-Maverick is showing up.

10/17/2017 10:51:02 AM


I am a non-conformist. If you tell me I have to conform to your way of thinking I say no. And not with respect.

10/16/2017 7:06:25 PM


I've been trying to write this morning, but everything I write comes down to this. Humans have made a total mess of everything. I could write more, but it would amount to the same thing.

10/16/2017 10:24:09 AM


Took a long drive from Denver to Taos today. On the map it's supposed to take five hours, but I took nine. Lots of stops. Listened to a bunch of podcasts including two Sunday news shows. Conclusion: the best Republican liar is Tillerson. That guy is slick. I didn't hate his lies. But Lindsey Graham and Netanyahu, they just plain out lie, no spin. Insulting to the intelligence of the listener. I can see why Trump likes them.

10/15/2017 7:06:34 PM


When I was driving cross-country in the mid-2000s, I remember wishing that I could ask the maps app to tell me what Starbucks were on my route, not nearby. I wasn't going to backtrack to get coffee. They have it now. I wanted to pick up groceries before checking in. I searched for groceries, it gave me a chance to search on my route. It presented a list of choices along with how much time they'd add to my trip. A button next to each one offered to add it as a stop. Smooth as silk. Another bonus, Google Maps says "Welcome to New Mexico" a mile or so before you see the official sign. It was a surprise and made me laugh. I guess what's next is the Google Home interface for the Maps app.

10/15/2017 7:52:43 PM


Very slow Internet at the place I'm staying. Barely faster than a 1990s dialup. I guess it's via satellite. I may have to use the Google Fi Nexus phone, if it's faster. Or find a Starbuck's.

10/15/2017 7:08:59 PM


Best podcast I listened to was the Longform interview of Michael Barbaro of the NYT Daily podcast. It has become the Visicalc of podcasts. I think everyone is listening to it. I don't miss an episode. He of course talked about the famous interview with the coal miner, but left out the best part, the thing he got dinged for the most (at least of what I heard) -- not challenging the guy on his opinion that coal didn't cause climate change. I totally supported that. I wanted to hear the guy's story and have the interviewer just let him say his piece. We know the arguments. It wouldn't have added anything to the story. Also, he defines the Daily as a podcast about the reporters who report the news. And the Longform interview was a podcsat about the podcast about the reporters who report the news. I wondered if another level is possible, but for now I couldn't imagine it.

10/15/2017 7:10:00 PM


I get a lot of ideas when I do long drives in the western US.

10/15/2017 7:13:54 PM


Someone should do an interview with Hoder about life in Iran for young bright entrepreneurial people. The deal Obama did with Iran wasn't just about the military, it opened up Iran to the rest of the world, and as you might expect from an intelligent population of an ancient civilization, they are rebooting. The theory is that the hardliners will have more trouble being jerks internationally if their citizens are bringing home lots of money trading with the rest of the world. It's a theory that works. It's why what Trump is doing is so wasteful and sets us back. It's not just about nukes.

10/15/2017 7:20:16 PM


CBS had an interview with the Iranian chief diplomat, who speaks good English and repped his case well. The snotty Repub they interviewed to balance it of course lied, bigtime. Iran is not on the UN Security Council. DIckerson is performing a service, by clearly stating reality knowing (probably) the Repubs will just lie. He's telling the listeners the truth. They should have an alternated channel with narration, sort of a translation. What he really means is.. That kind of thing.

10/15/2017 7:25:00 PM


Did you ever wonder where North Korea got the money for their nuclear program? Planet Money has the answer. Kim Jong Un has let an entrepreneurial class develop. They say he's funding it with tax money. How about that.

10/15/2017 7:22:54 PM


Watched the first two episodes of Mr Mercedes, expecting it to be drek, and was surprised at how good it is. I knew the story because I read the book. The book started great and then like a lot of late Stephen King books got bogged down in smarmy bullshit. Most Stephen King movies/shows are crap, like the recent It. Some of them make great movies like The Shining, Carrie, Shawshank Redemption. This one is promising.

A Twitter thread I wrote without benefit of Electric Pork. Freestyle. I think it's pretty good. It starts out like this: "Twitter users who think you are a customer. You are not a customer. You are the product."

I knew when I saw the web that's what I had been born to do. Just because people want to use Facebook doesn't change that simple fact.

Yes indeed NYT, Silicon Valley is not your friend but the open web is. As often is the case, corporate media has trouble seeing anything but corporate tech. But before there were tech companies, there was the web, which sprung from academia. It instantly wiped out the business models the tech industry had for networking, all of which were designed to lock users in. It took a couple of decades for Silicon Valley to re-establish lock-in, at least partially because news let them take over their distribution system. It may not be too late for the open web, but it needs a lot of help.

Michelle Goldberg writes about sexual harassment. She has only experienced it once, in college. Her theory, she has only worked in organizations with women at the top. That fosters an environment of respect.

47 - Why I empathize with Twitter

In 2003, almost by accident, the company that I founded but had left, surprised me by directing requests to a popular domain to one of my colocated servers. I tried to keep it running but there was too much traffic. I couldn't do the work required to stabilize the service, i had a new job and my health was still iffy after heart surgery, and I would have had to buy a bunch more servers, and there was no revenue to support it. So I had to turn the service off. Really the only choice was to risk my health, and spend a lot of money.

A few of the users went on a campaign aimed at punishing me personally. Many of them had empty sites on the service, they had never published anything, so they didn't have anything at stake. I completely disclosed what happened. None of the bloggers referred to my post or the podcast I did explaining. They kept right on attacking. I appealed to blogging friends but they wouldn't say anything in my defense.

Eventually the story was covered by mainstream journalists, and guess what -- they listened, and told my side of the story too. The ranters wanted something else, certainly not the truth. Most of the users just wanted their sites back. Quietly I worked with them, and got every one who wanted one a backup of their sites, personally, on my own time.

I waited it out, they got tired I guess, but never forgot how awful they were. That's why I empathize with Twitter.

Little Outliner tip: If you keep LO2 open all day every day, when you start work in the morning, reload the page. There's some kind of performance issue in the app that causes it to get slow if you leave it running too long. Reloading the page is the same as quitting and relaunching an app. Fargo didn't have this issue. I must be doing something differently, but I don't know what it is. Still diggin!
