The dot-com shoes keep dropping!  Yesterday Brobeck, a leading dot-com era law firm, announced they were shutting their doors.  And today Key3Media, which runs Comdex, filed for bankruptcy.

Is it just me, or are the 'blogs doing a better job of covering the Columbia disaster than the media?  I learned far more from Glenn Reynolds than I did from CNN.  Bloggers care about why it happened and what will happen next technically.  The media care about who's fault it was and what will happen next politically.  Dave Winer is right!

Wired - "Tivo: The Rise of God's Machine".  Yeah, I like mine, too :)

The Vatican says Harry Potter is okay.  Whew...
