Now you put your ideas in the infospace by posting to a blog or to a mailing list. Of course the problem is that the reader must know which blogs and mailing lists match her interests. I subscribe to many feeds, blogs and lists but I am sure I don't see even a 0.1% of all the posts I would wish to read. Instead of posting your thoughts to a list, you should be able to just post it and rely on the ability of the global infospace to direct the reader to everything that match her interests.
The Bratz are now Baby Mommaz. Yes, the hooker-in-training dolls have children. Bratz are the main reason I do not keep a supply of bricks around the house, because everytime the commercials come on I wish to pitch something kiln-fired through the screen so hard it beans the toy exec who greenlighted these hootchie toys. The Baby Bratz are as bad as you can imagine: “Bottles with Bling.”Insanity planet. What do you do when your kids get to the age where they see these things on TV, want them, ask for them, and chuck all manner of fits if they don't get them? Shouldn't the message underpinning the toys be socially responsible & positive even if the toys aren't?
RFIDs are placed beside works in the gallery, and visitors use a pen-shaped tag reader in combination with a Dell Axim handheld to read a piece’s unique ID number and call up its information....gallery owners hope to convert more visitors into customers by removing the often uncomfortable act of having to ask curators or staff about pricing.via Engadget
Visit Ted's tagging post. Click his bookmarklet link in the post, & you'll be taken to a second (non-blogger hosted) page that allowed the script to be posted as a link. The URL for that page is:
On that page is a link called
"technorati del.icio.us bookmarklet"
& that's the link you want to drag to your links bar.
So...Once the script-link from the second page is on the bar in your browser, you should see a different set of properties? Right-click the bookmarklet, select properties and scroll through the code 'til you find Ted's del.icio.us signon at the end of the del.icio.us URL. http://del.icio.us/******
You don't want your posts to appear on his del.icio.us page, so change the signon (in asterisks above) to match yours. Then exit the properties window, & you'll be able to click the bookmarklet to generate tag-code when you're writing a post.
I have added a comment to this post to clarify the installation and use of the tag-generating bookmarklet that I'm using. As Melly points out in the comments, I wasn't as clear as I could have been. I hope the new addition helps.
I have also discovered a spectacular add-on and side benefit of this process. Extisp.icio.us is a service that provides a graphical representation, or map, of a user's del.icio.us tags. A del.icio.us signon is all that's needed to get a page that maps your tags. Check out my extisp.icio.us page, and my recent post explaining what the map is and what it is good for.Update 6/23/05:

there are two different axes which are important in describing British people's political views.Interesting to separate these things out this way. I, for instance, am an internationalist / rehabilitationist with centrist economic views, whatever that means...
The first and much more important axis descibe's people's views on crime and punishment, Europe, and other transnational issues including immigration and international law. This is an identifiably left-right axis, but it is not the traditional left-right scale of economic views.
The second axis, which is much less important is about economics — among other things. People who believe in free markets are also likely to support the war in Iraq and prefer an American to a European model of government. This too might be called left-right, but questions about international relations and other issues are mixed in with the economic issues.
Here are a baker's dozen of [lost architectural treasures] - all in Manhattan, which has suffered the greatest loss of architectural treasures - that are forever etched in the city's collective memory. All have disappeared since the demise of Penn Station, and most were subjects of controversy at the time of their destruction. They are just a sample of what has vanished.
Taken together, these lost buildings and rooms form a kind of ghost city, an island of memory that hovers above the real, evolving Manhattan. It is a shadow New York that once was and might have continued to be, had the economic and political forces that shape the city been different. It is also the only New York that is a perfect New York, for as Marcel Proust wrote in "Remembrance of Things Past," "the true paradises are the paradises we have lost..."
Here's the thing. Teri Hatcher isn't in the center of the picture, but she's in the center of the cover once you fold the picture. Anyway. Funny how TV drama needs real-life drama to keep us all interested, isn't it?
ABC News: NEW YORK Apr 5, 2005 — They may appear sultry and ready for summer on the May cover of Vanity Fair, but according to the magazine, the stars of ABC's "Desperate Housewives" were actually steaming angry.
Vanity Fair's cover proclaims: "You wouldn't believe what it took just to get this photo!" The article acknowledges that the poolside photo-shoot, in which the five women appear in different colored bathing suits, was manned by an ABC representative who was to make sure that certain demands were met including that Teri Hatcher didn't select her wardrobe first or appear in the center of any group photo.
"Whatever you do," the ABC rep, who wasn't identified by name, said when he arrived on the set, "do not let Teri go to wardrobe first."
