Remains of the Day, 6-01-07

I’ve been asked to participate on a panel that I know is going to intimidate me but if they keep asking, I’ll keep trying to say yes. It also means I have to get to bed.

1. Ideacrossing.com. I don’t need it, but maybe you do, or someone you know? I read about it in the June 2007 Inside Business.

2. “Palestinian Kindergarteners Vow to Die for Allah” Disclaimer: note the source of the article. There are stories about this kind of thing fairly often. But is it any different from Jesus Camp? I don’t know – but I think that question is worth a debate.

3. New gene mutations, connected to breast cancer, have been discovered. But I don’t understand most of what I’ve read so far.

4. Twenty percent of people vacationing take their computers and squeeze in work. Wendy Hoke wrote about this issue not long ago.

5. Two from Editor & Publisher:

AP will track its online content if you use it

Cuts at San Jose Mercury News, same week that its former editor starts at the PD

6. Akron man with concealed carry shoots are robbers

7. Cleveland Clinic tries to civilize kids – the question should be, why aren’t parents teaching the exact same lessons? It shouldn’t take someone having an illness to respect differences.

Shabbat Shalom.

  1. Oh, Jill! You *have* to go! Why would you not want to go? “I’ve been asked to participate on a panel that I know is going to intimidate me but if they keep asking, I’ll keep trying to say yes. It also means I have to get to bed.”Can I go in your place as an (un)suitable sub? I’d LOVE to go. Oh, you should go. You should go, go, go, go, go.Did I say you should go? Go.

  2. They have the first sentence right, anyway:”Right now publishers are in the dark,” said Brock. “They don’t have full visibility with the content once it goes online. The first step is providing that visibility. With that, as we talk to publishers, we find great interest how re-use could be understood.”So I copied your paragraph, AP. Are you going to send me a bill for $1.00?What do you think? What’s left *besides* AP for news? Is their concern $$ or do they want to know who’s reading what to provide better coverage? Yeah. That must be it.
