It's been a busy few weeks, and not just in my life. I've done an emergency website that went predictably: from a quick can-you-just-get-me-something-up to a touchy when-or-will-we-be-paid-for-this because the clients kept adding content as they saw and thought about what they wanted (read: needed). -- Can we say "scope creep" three times?
Then when the website was looking about finished, the friend bribed me with food to come help him move his furniture. It felt pretty good to get all sweaty and stuff.
I wrote a quick book taking Internet marketing from the grand old days when search engines were the rage to the new world of blogs, RSS, and beyond. Predictably, the reviews were great. However, it didn't accomplish its purpose of putting a whole project on the same page. I went mumbling off, frustrated.
RSS has come a long way since being the playtoy of financial institutions and other active traders trying to keep up with the latest in commodity, inventory and stock prices; and another of the obscure "MLs" -- SGML, OPML, XML and all its variants with the accompanying XLSTs, and HTML. How did CSS not end up being an "ML"? I suppose it's because of XLST's.
