He's just posted a mammoth post about the evolution of the internet, and different modes of communication: messaging, request/response and publish/subscribe. I expect he'll have more to say about the third mode in due course :-)
I remember a widely-linked mail from Mark Pilgrim about a project he was working on to produce a personal database based on everything you do in Firefox. What happened to this? I don't remember hearing anything about it.
My 2005 list is a bit shorter than Kottke's:
- Christchurch, New Zealand
- San Francisco, CA, USA
- Kanazawa, Japan
- Tokyo, Japan
- Wellington, New Zealand
Here's a guess at 2006:
- Christchurch, New Zealand (of course)
- Nelson, New Zealand (definitely)
- New Delhi, India (very likely)
- San Francisco, CA, USA (if we do another company offsite)
- Tokyo, Japan (less likely)
- Sydney, Australia (if it gets too cold in winter...)
Interesting to see that the front page of identity.toptensources.com, written by Irina Slutsky, includes a high-res scan of her passport front page.
(Yep - the image looks small when you see it on the page, but it hasn't actually been scaled down; click here for the full version.)
I notice that the passport number has been scratched out, at least. Hmm.
