Outgoing: WorldCat Wiki
“The idea is to have a Wiki that complements WorldCat. People could add reviews, cover art, comments, etc. and relate these to bibliographic records (maybe at the FRBR work-level too). We hope the system is flexible enough so that people do (good) things we’re not expecting. We’d like the Wiki to be available anywhere WorldCat records are.“
Picked this up via Library Stuff. Sounds like a great idea. Something to keep in mind for my FoLL article.
Wired News: Watch for Roadcasting Rage
“Researchers at Carnegie Mellon University are developing an ad hoc networking system for cars that would allow any driver to broadcast music to any other vehicle within a 30-mile radius.“
Hmm, neat concept. I think Cory Doctorow came up with it in “Eastern Standard Tribe“, at least that’s where I ran across it. He even notes, back in October 2004, that enterprising iPodders where starting to do this sort of thing. Anyhow, I think it’s cool and I hope Cory gets the credit.

This I will have to try. Once its on the console, you know it must be serious:)
BetaNews | Microsoft: No IE7 for Windows 2000
“With Internet Explorer 7 Beta 1 set to debut next month, Microsoft has quietly closed the door on Windows 2000 users planning to adopt the new Web browser. IE7 will require Windows XP Service Pack 2 due to internal security changes that rely on Microsoft’s latest operating system release.“
They really do want to drive those upgrade dollars.
IEBlog : IE7 Tabbed Browsing Implementation
“My role has been to re-architect IE to support tabbed browsing. This work began last year and includes building a new frame (top-level window and chrome), sorting out how to host and switch between multiple instances of the browser, and managing communication between the various internal components“
Good insight on how tabs are being architected in IE7.
