September 2001’s Posts.

    Two unrelated notes today, one was actually meant for yesterday but between grading assignments for the online journalism class I teach, and being interviewed by an reporter for an Israeli newspaper, I never got a chance to post it.

  2. September 25, 2001

    Due to some changes with my web hosting company, the back-end of saila.com will be undergoing some major changes over the next couple of months. So, if anyone knows some good ASP tutorials online, let me know

  3. Musical markers

    Music has a way of creating powerful signposts in people’s lives.

  4. Hackers threaten news sites’ integrity

    Online news sites face risks with Web site defacements.

  13. There’s hype in tech journalism!

    A rant inspired by Steve Gilliard’s NetSlave rant about technology journalism.

  14. canada.com launches

    A new Canadian portal (of sorts) appeared this week even as another faces an uncertain future.

  15. Unplugged

    My wife and I took the weekend off for our anniversary. Not only did we not check email, we only used the computer to play music and the TV to watch movies. And we unplugged the phone.
