I am jealous of your ability to work from home! That said, the comment war going on over at the Blogging, Journalism & Credibility" conference is sort of old news. Dave Winer was posting about the problem on Scripting News on Saturday, if memory serves. Here is the first post he made about it: http://archive.scripting.com/2005/01/08#aNewHarvardBloggingConference.
(Yes, I am a big friggin' geek.) Dave makes a very good point, though.

You are the other person who has said del.icio.us is the proverbial bomb. I have not played with it yet, but I am a slave to my aggregator at this point. I might have to play with it soon, though.

"...the comment war going on over at the Blogging, Journalism & Credibility" conference is sort of old news."

Yeah, I know. But I've been following it and people are still posting to it, though it looks like The One True b!X has truly given it up now. I know... time for me to move on though, right? Do you know of any good updates about the conference, or are they sticking to the list of invitees that they posted?

"...del.icio.us is the proverbial bomb. I have not played with it yet, but I am a slave to my aggregator at this point."

Well, you can subscribe to tags if that makes it any more appealing to you.

I've been using del.icio.us for several months now, hoping it will totally replace my unorganized bookmark system. I subscribe to a few del.icio.us feeds of other bloggers too...great for getting some useful links.

Well, Dave Winer over at Scripting News would be a good person to follow. Rebecca MacKinnon--one of the organizers as well--would be a good person to follow for the conference--if memory serves, she used to work for CNN and is now a blogger. Chris Lydon and Dave Sifry (of Technorati) would be good ones to follow, too. I think it is important to read the bloggers for their input on this one, as some of the journalists do not tend to have blogs.

If the conference is somewhat like Bloggercon, it should have a blog (which it sort of has now). I am trying to get Dave Winer to stop in Baltimore on his drive north to Harvard. We will see how that goes, though. No response yet.

But are you blogging in pajamas? That's the question we all want answered.

Hey, if Dave you correspond with Dave again, lostgirl (or anyone else), tell him I'd be happy to organize something. Dave wrote a column for a magazine I once ran, and he's vaguely aware of my existance as a blog-for-food person.

Malnutured Snay - Nope, I wasn't blogging in pajamas. That's why you were supposed to be proud of me. :)

Well, you could have showered and then gotten into clean pajamas. We still would've been proud of you -- how many people shower and then blog in PJs? HMM?

I have been working from home 3 days a week since may, and 2 days a week previous to that for 4 years. Now I have the added bonus of being a full time dad the 3 days I work from home, so basicly im the dad until 6 or so, taking conference calls durring naps and then at 6, i head to the basement office to work till oh say 2 - 3 am. so here is some advice

1) get outside every so offten, take advantage the wonders of a cell phone and get out, or you will go batty

2) get dressed in the morning and shower, not only will this prep you like your working, but its not so depressing.

3) set some boundries on when you will work and when you wont, at first it was hard doing this and I felt like I was working constantly and could never relax.

4) stay in contact w/ the outside world, make regular calls

5) do not turn on the tv, this was my scurge for a while... now I just keep the radio on

did i mention the cell phone and getting outside
