I don't understand why everyone is worked up over Konfabulator. It's, uh, an environment for running arbitrary programs. That you DOWNLOAD! If only we had had such a thing before.

Most Konfabulator widgets seem to be repackaging of RSS feeds. Here's a hint: it's much more useful to use a dedicated solution to this instead. Why in the world would I want to click on a bunch of widgets in turn to see what new news is out there, instead of just firing up NetNewsWire and using the space bar to scroll through everything?  10:40:57 AM  (comments []  

This is fascinating: The Irony of Propaganda [via LawMeme]

It's hard to quote from this without going whole hog and quoting the whole thing, but the essence is this: the CIA recently captured the radio frequency of an Iraqi radio station, and is posing as that radio station to spread disinfo. They bring up the interesting point that disinfo is hard to contain, and that some of this will leak into the global coverage, reported as if it was authentic Iraqi transmission.  10:36:13 AM  (comments []  

Speaking of terror, this comes out at the same time as this. Do we LAN party or scare the sh*t out of ourselves that night? Ah, suddenly the true dimensions of the horror unfold! And, and, before you get blown out of the sky, you'll see the... anyway.  10:32:26 AM  (comments []  

I saw this in the grocery store the other day, but I didn't stop to take in the full terror that is the nutritional information. But hey, if you ever need a source for 231% of your daily cholesterol in one convenient package, Swanson's got you covered. [Via Daypop]  10:27:54 AM  (comments []  

The Register just put up this review of the Sony Ericsson P800, and damn yo, I want one. This actually looks like a phone/PDA combo that's actually aesthetically pleasing and ergonomically sensible. Can't wait to see one in person.  10:20:59 AM  (comments []  

This is sad, sad news. I also literally lived in Mr. Roger's neighborhood when I lived in Pittsburgh. This show always had a special place in my heart.
Mister Rogers Dead at 74
PITTSBURGH - Fred Rogers, who gently invited millions of children to be his neighbor as host of the public television show "Mister Rogers' Neighborhood" for more than 30 years, died of cancer early Thursday. He was 74.
I literally lived in Mister Rogers' Neighborhood when I was in Pittsburgh. Sad to hear that he has passed on. I was more of a Captain Kangaroo fan as a child, but I have always had a deep respect for anyone who makes a successful career of playing with kids & toys (without showing up in the tabloids).
