ARTS & FARCES internet : Radio community subversion "Personal computers infiltrated organizations through the back door. Someone brought one in to make his or her job easier and the notion spread, like a virus. RCS is going to infiltrate organizations the same way." Ran across this in Dave Winer's "Scripting News" and had to read the whole thing...

I mentioned something very similar in a conversation with a fellow blogger earlier today -- "This is viral software...two people will start using it, a few more will notice and try it, and pretty soon you've got 1,000 users blogging..."

RCS taps an unmet need in large corporations by hitting a "sweet spot" of features for knowledge capture, organization, and sharing at a price point that avoids the typical capital process (and dramatically undercuts traditional content management products, though RCS is about different things than something like Interwoven or Vignette). Thanks, Dave, for starting another revolution...

Date Night! On those seemingly rare occasions when everything falls into place and events proceed as though following the script of a romantic classic, it's good to savor the moment. I've been savoring now for 28 hours... My wife and I escaped our home last Saturday night to enjoy an evening of unfettered relaxation. We'd engaged the kids' favorite babysitter, and left the house with a simple plan, only 3 generally-defined destinations. We arrived for Catholic Mass at the Basilica of St. Mary in Minneapolis at about 4:30. We were early, and discovered a wedding party just departing. As we entered the church, I was drawn back to my childhood attendance of Mass at St. Mary's Catholic Church in Sleepy Eye . Though the church of my childhood is somewhat less grand than the Basilica, the notable similarities helped inaugurate our evening with pleasant reminiscence. Once Mass had concluded, we returned to the car and drove the 3 blocks to the Walker Art Center
GullFOSS - Sun Microsystems joins porting effort for OpenOffice.org for Mac We can only hope that there'll be some excellent cross-pollination between Sun's team and the folks at NeoOffice . NeoOffice has done a good job of delivering added value to OOo, and it would be a shame to see that good work fall by the wayside as the OOo core evolves to include its own Mac-native UX. I'm sure mine is not the only voice encouraging the teams to find ways to cooperate and bring the best of both to OpenOffice's Mac user community.
