I think we can all sleep a little sounder tonight, thanks to this long overdue news.
Today's Media Nugget by Michael Sippey is an interesting take on wireless connection via cell phone. We'll have to see if WAP and web-clipping really catch on...
Today's featured album: Mock Tudor by Richard Thompson. It's touted as a "concept album" about suburban life in London, but I have to confess that I haven't yet managed to get my mind around the entire arc of the story; I've been too caught up in the beauty of the individual songs. Nevertheless, it's good on first listen and only gets better. Highlights: "Cooksferry Queen" and "Dry My Tears and Move On."

Well, sxsw was a trip. I wish I could have stayed for the music. Next year, no question, I'm going to stay. In any case, it was good to meet the people behind the pages. [Obligatory blogrolling: pb, dp, jk, cb, ma.]
