@hober: RT @othermaciej: I'm observing Victims of Communism day today: http://volokh.com/2010/05/01/victims-of-communism-day-2/
@hober: Is an app a web app? @BenWard's post hits nail on head: http://hbr.me/QR84h Think "hypermedia as the engine of application state," people.
@hober: @nateritter preach it, brother!
@hober: @joehewitt I'm surprised at how much I disagree with you there.
@hober: @joehewitt hence HTML5—taking the "open to interpretation" bit out of HTML. Finally.
@hober: @othermaciej damn straight.
@hober: @TrevorGerzen I don't know what you have in mind long-term, but we need to stay on the same page. You rule, and I'm all about peeps who rule
@hober: RT @mezzoblue: God prefers atheists: http://www.mrwiggleslovesyou.com/comics/rehab477.jpg
@hober: RT @kariek: It took a Boston water contamination for the #redsox to get back to their winning ways. Dirty water indeed.
@hober: @t you picked a great night for it!
@hober: @adactio congrats! Pre-ordered. Looking forward to it.
@hober: @quepol awesome! I first heard of them when @MeganPrelinger gave a great Ignite session at @SpaceUpConf. Good people being awesome!
@hober: @jennyjenjen, what's this about you leaving San Diego? :(
@hober: @enkrates people defended Microsoft?
@hober: Enjoying a Cucapá Obscura on this anniversary of an obscure Mexican-French battle few in Mexico are actually familiar with.
@hober: @aboynamedart I stand corrected.
@hober: @thepegisin Go stay at Hacienda Guadalupe! http://hbr.me/1PsTe8 Like @kirinqueen said, the Guadalupe Valley is awesome.
@hober: No backends survive. The @InternetArchive won't save the DB under your Django app. There are no resources, only representations.
@hober: RT @willwilkinson: Vigorously enforcing unjust statues because they are, after all, on the books is not the rule of law.
@hober: @RitualTavern I'll give it another shot, but Billy P. rules @RitualTavern with an iron @foursquare mayor-fist.
@hober: Does @geoposty use the Geolocation API? http://hbr.me/3WQf8V
@hober: Pembertize(v): publishing on URLs you control, syndicating to URLs you don't. cf. @t's Falcon. HT @adactio: http://adactio.com/journal/1468/
@hober: @kevinmarks I'm reminded of the old Vulcan proverb: only Nixon could go to China.
@hober: @hilahil a request: "Congratulations" by Juliana Hatfield (on Only Everything). JH is awesome, as is @fm949sd.
@hober: RT @RitualTavern There's something about drinking cold beer with warm friends on a sunny patio :-) http://yfrog.com/0cionfj « That's us! :)
@hober: @sogrady don't take this the wrong way, but I blame you.
@hober: @sogrady you'd be surprised.
@hober: Wow, I think @adactio just wrote the blog post I've been working on this week. http://adactio.com/journal/1665
@hober: Hiring movers just may be the smartest thing I've ever done in my whole life.
@hober: @RedTheTrucker it still means pizza and beer, though. :)
@hober: If you're in San Diego and are moving anytime soon, I can't recommend https://sdreliabledelivery.com/ highly enough. They're awesome!
@hober: RT @danwho: im wearing a watch and staring at a laptop with a clock. so when asked for the time, i reached first for my iPhone. kinda ...
@hober: jQuery San Diego is downstairs at the Red Fox Room—upstairs is open only on weekends. #jqsd
@hober: The HTML5 parser is now enabled by default on Firefox trunk: http://hbr.me/16Wb6S Congrats @hsivonen on all your hard work!
@hober: There are countless potential reasons why they didn't respond to your email. Stop freaking out about it. http://hbr.me/51GPKc #efail #psa
@hober: @enkrates congrats!
@hober: @lizadilly you're leaving Boston again?
@hober: @pseudowish you're in town? Come out to @djangosd tomorrow and geek out about @microformats with us!
@hober: @Canthros t minus twenty on inaccuracy there. :) happy birthday!
@hober: RT @zzgavin: wondering how diaspora differs from status.net other than having an nyt article and no shipping code vs http://status.net/d ...
@hober: @micahbrich err, there *is* a <caption> element: http://hbr.me/5Hn3jy #html
@hober: Every time you blather on about the trade "deficit," David Ricardo euthanizes a terminally-ill kitten. Comparative advantage, yo. #econ101
@hober: @micahbrich perhaps you'd like to use <figure> with <figcaption>.
@hober: RT @djangosd: Hey everybody, the May edition of @djangosd is tonight at Station Tavern in South Park. http://djangosd.jottit.com/2010-05 ...
@hober: I should never be allowed to go to Fry's without a chaperone.
@hober: En route to @djangosd on bike—may be a few minutes late. Save me a seat! :)
@hober: @cramforce see also XOXO http://hbr.me/27oT9a #microformats
@hober: @SamanthaZeitlin wait, you know @gtmcknight? I think my brain just exploded.
@hober: @kirinqueen my sanity hangs by the slightest of threads. Internet, Internet, lamâ šabaqtanî?
@hober: So which recentish netbook is best, given I'll run either FreeBSD or Ubuntu on it? Eyeing the Lenovo S10-3, Dell Mini 10. All ears on others
@hober: @aeppert are there any netbooks with a nub and no trackpad at all? I miss my Fujitsu LifeBook P-2120.
@hober: @rohitkhare that's why you should have gone to #RHIT, a great place in practice! :)
@hober: @trochee did you have a hand in @wordnik's transition to #mongodb? Good stuff!
@hober: @rafuzo it was very sad even out here on the west coast.
@hober: @joelpage and the genre. Don't get me started about ID3 tags and the metacrap problem.
@hober: @markng products of the federal government are PD. State governments differ as to copyright on their products. Federalism=inconsistency. :)
@hober: I wonder how many λf·(λx·f (x x)) (λx·f (x x)) tattoos there are in the world.
@hober: Trying @thelinkery's baklava with @kirinqueen. Jesus Christ in a handbasket, that's some tasty shit.
@hober: @djcapelis I kind of hope they all have mismatched parens.
@hober: @sogrady seriously, they're awesome.
@hober: @RedTheTrucker don't we all!
@hober: RT @t: Sorry @chrismessina @jsmarr I'm calling bullshit on #OpenID Connect. Still too complex, unnecessary vocab renaming, ... http://tt ...
@hober: RT @lemonodor: In 2010, for the first time, the U. S. Air Force will train more UAV pilots than manned-aircraft pilots.
@hober: @kirinqueen I like that our icons match now. :)
@hober: Enjoying a homemade raspberry lime rickey while installing a WinXP imsge under VirtualBox for @kirinqueen. #newenglandftw
@hober: While I think WebM sounds great, I doubt Apple or Microsoft will get behind it, given the patent doubt cloud surrounding vp8.
@hober: @miketaylr re-read that MSFT post. They're not shipping the VP8 codec.
@hober: @miketaylr sure, but how many users install custom video codecs? I bet it'll play Ogg if you've got that installed too.
@hober: @tweetie so far so good, except what did you do with all of my @twitter accounts? Do I really need to re-add them?
@hober: @miketaylr hahaha. Safari is in exactly the same boat: it'll play any video QT supports, and you can install QT plugins. Not common.
@hober: IE9 supports VP8 in the same way that Safari supports Ogg: it doesn't. Users don't install QT plugins; why would they install WM plugins?
@hober: That said, I think Google's WebM move is a net positive for the open web stack. But it doesn't get us to one, universally-supported codec.
@hober: What <video> needs is one, high-quality codec that works *out of the box* in the browsers from Apple, Google, Microsoft, Mozilla, and Opera.
@hober: @greenideas Of course it does—Raph had a hand in it: http://hbr.me/9c3Aj6 :) (sorry for the resend—fixing the link)
@hober: Is HTML5 ready yet? Yes. Yes, and welcome to @zombocom. http://html5zombo.com/ #svg
@hober: @antifuchs indeed.
@hober: @heycam "web em"? "webbum"? yeah, ick.
@hober: @chris_radcliff Neither Apple nor Microsoft will implement it, for (semi-reasonable) fear of submarine patents.
@hober: I disapprove of what you draft, but I defend to the death your right to publish to meet the WG's heartbeat requirement. Sorry Voltaire. #w3c
@hober: @inkedmn srsly people.
@hober: Hanging out at @stoutsd with @kirinqueen and her horde of knitters.
@hober: @diveintomark righteous interrobang.
@hober: @dols sadly, I dropped #rhit's old news server off at the @scituate dump several years ago.
@hober: RT @gtmcknight: Words With Friends has been dled 4.5 million times, with the avg player jacked into the game 1.5hrs a day. http://bit.l ...
@hober: Contemplating Vancouver in July, for @kirinqueen & my 5th anniversary. Where to stay/eat/drink/enjoy?
@hober: Hanging out with some Synthetic Genomics peeps. They're pretty chuffed, and rightly so.
@hober: @textfiles indeed, he's a big jerk. That said, I wish the event the best.
@hober: I know about the holograms.
@hober: RT @willwilkinson: The Rand Paul debacle spotlights the way the link to populist conservatism sullies libertarianism while obscuring it' ...
@hober: @hsivonen IIRC Safari unconditionally plays the first <source>. /cc @diveintomark
@hober: RT @davidschneider: Doctors have completed exploratory operation on Bono's back. They say they still haven't found what they're looking for
@hober: @drluckyspin awesome! Good luck!
@hober: @SamanthaZeitlin yeah, we know that guy.
@hober: @taphunter IIRC you can get them at @thelinkery, but maybe that's changed. Nevertheless, you can buy them on the bus.
@hober: @nateritter 1) Double-Double animal style. 2) inexpensive but decent-looking suit. 3) save rest for food while spending week interviewing.
@hober: Waiting for the northbound @sdpark2park at stop B. @ritualtavern, here we come!
@hober: @tardisgrl fuckers. How hard is it to STFU for another couple of innings? #redsox
@hober: RT @MIHOgastrotruck: We are about a week away from the official launch. So stay tuned for a date, and locations!
@hober: I'm sad to report that I neglected to bring my towel to work today. #towelday
@hober: RT @kevinmarks: In honour of #towelday, do read Douglas Adams prescient 1999 essay on The Internet http://bit.ly/DA
@hober: @sogrady I'd be tempted to trade an iPhone 3GS for an AT&T-capable Nexus One, but that's not what you're looking for…
@hober: @pemulis but then winter happens, and it's dark all the effing time. Trade-offs.
@hober: Watching TWOK on @netflix streaming on my Wii. First, how awesome is that? Second, I love Microgramma. #typography #startrek
@hober: @adactio The Tam? Crap, I should have attended AEA just to steer you down to Foley's and away from that wretched hive of scum and villany.
@hober: Congratulations @t on your new role at Mozilla! http://j.mp/tmoz
@hober: @Beckiburg email sent. Don't know if anything will come of it, but we'll see!
@hober: Awfully tempted to try to catch the GBL's @ChicoOutlaws next time they're in TJ playing the Cimarrones. Would love to see Eri Yoshida pitch.
@hober: Why didn't I bring my headphones today? #unabletothink #stfu
@hober: Texas peeps: @InNOutBurger is coming your way! http://hbr.me/C9k33a
@hober: @MIHOgastrotruck ooooh. We'll definitely give you a try if we're in town.
@hober: Finishing up a hairy svn merge. Not thinking "this would be better in git," but instead thought "this used to suck in cvs." Getting old?
@hober: Sadly, @MIHOgastrotruck's blog ( http://hbr.me/F2wJpp ) has no Atom or RSS feed. How are your adoring fans to stay up-to-date?
@hober: Wait, @fontslive, you want me to *pay* for *Verdana*? http://hbr.me/Vm42ms I think you might be doing it wrong. #webfonts
@hober: @mokolabs I think it's more like one Death Star blowing up another Death Star. Hmmm, hot Death Star-on-Death Star action.
@hober: @KevinBaird it's tonight.
@hober: @jamie3d I really like @jwiegley's "Git from the Bottom Up": http://hbr.me/g1j45a
@hober: @crestcafesd wait, you mean I can have a Hangover before I get a hangover? Awesome!
@hober: RT @SlexAxton: The jQuery Namespace is the new Global Namespace. #jQuery #badplugins
@hober: Nice bike ride to Grant's for lunch with @mokolabs. Was much easier to come to the canyon bottom than it was going out. Now back to work.
@hober: Mass. Senate voted to eliminate Bunker Hill Day & Evacuation Day (3/17). :/ Bostonians, if you want Paddy's Day off, contact your state rep.
@hober: RT @chrismessina: Very tempting: 67% off 'The West Wing: The Complete Series' on DVD: http://amzn.to/a2AwVg #deal
@hober: @nateritter wait, you're moving again? I thought you just moved?
@hober: Gary Coleman, the last person I voted for (for CA governor), dead at 42. http://bit.ly/cOJ4Ut I voted for him 'cause he didn't want the job.
@hober: @dacort On behalf of San Diego, I apologize for them.
@hober: @declan Oooh. Let me know how it is.
@hober: @offdutyfoodie Alpine's Nelson Rye IPA.
@hober: @jtauber will you be posting any sort of end-of-series stats, like who had the best-performing predictions over the whole show's run? #lost
@hober: Dinner at Vagabond with the mayor.
@hober: RT @timbray: Unlike apparently everyone, I'm not pissed at BP. You gonna live on fossil fuel, shit gonna happen. BP drew the short straw.
@hober: @phuff congrats!
@hober: @mpt better yet, an HTML5 demo consisting entirely of features specced for the first time, but from IE ages ago. @contenteditable anyone?
@hober: @Adora speaking for 92104, the neighborhood really misses you too!
@hober: @Adora we're hitting Stone in the late afternoon, not sure what'll be on later.
@hober: @Adora we'll be there well into the evening, so you should come! :) :) :) :)
@hober: Watching the cheetahs get fed at the Wild Animal Park.
@hober: @SouthBayDrugs you had me at "Nelson."
@hober: @Adora おかいりなさい！
@hober: @al3x yes, it was enjoyable, but how much of it was true? Was Mr. Brainwash a figment of Banksy's imagination?
@hober: Wait, is it Celtics v. Lakers again? 'Cause, FYI, Lakers are going down. P.S. Suck it LA.
@hober: Nom nom nom, @kirinqueen treated @Adora and myself to chocolate chip pancakes for breakfast.
@hober: Memorial Day: three kinds of meat on the BBQ, trying my brother-in-law's homebrew, and getting peed on by my newborn nephew. Life is good.
@hober: @paul_irish on behalf of all NE-expat Californians, welcome!
@hober: @ABright extropy!
@hober: At Lancers. You should be too! Take @sdpark2park and get on over here.
@hober: @KevinBaird it's true, it's 100% true.
@hober: @ilinsky because that's what the spec says to do.
@hober: @ilinsky DOM consistency between the two language serializations.
Ease of discipline
The problem is the spec
