Allright - read about Dooce's ordeal
and then come back here... I'll wait... tick.. tock...
OK - what a bunch of bullshit. How can an amorphous company terminate an employee for weblogging about their feelings? Especially when said company and it's employees were never named? What's the difference between Dooce bitching to her fiancee' regarding how much her job sucks and her bitching into her weblog about it? Sounds to me like she was fired for bitching. If so, I've got to be next - I bitch about my job all the time...
Creative design community resources
Stumbled upon CreativePublic

A Trillian patch
was released this afternoon. Could it be the result of yesterdays post? Anyway, I'm switching back and plan to use Odigo
in emergency IM situations.

, but I've been caught in the crossfire (being a Trillian
user and all). If you use Trillian, are sick of waiting for the next AIM patch and don't want to succumb to AOL, give Odigo
a try. It doesn't act as stable as Trillian, but has some unique features. I've been using it for a few days now and it's working.

Very cool satellite picture of the Earth

Old news for some, but Hivelogic has a handy e-mail address encoder
Creating thorough IA deliverables
Two information architects describe how to focus on creating thorough IA deliverables
that lead to better products.
New design of co][nz.org released
The new 'design' is finally live, and the time that I spent focusing on it accounts for the lack of insightful posts over the last few weeks (my apologies to all two of you). There are still a couple of areas to finalize and post content for, but I couldn't bear waiting so I went live with what I'd completed so far. I've enjoyed building it and I hope that you enjoy using it.
