So again the America's Cup is postponed; after working through the night to rig a new mast, TNZ was not able to test it against Alinghi today.
Well, another dot-com shoe has dropped; the Red Herring has closed its doors. It joins Upside, the Industry Standard, eCompany, and Forbes ASAP, leaving Business 2.0 as the last "new economy" business magazine still publishing. I can distinctly remember early 2000, when Red Herring was about 500 pages thick, choked with tombstone ads from investment banks, and full of "we're too cool for ourselves" articles. I found this great article about all the contenders in Forbes ASAP, dated August 2000 - good for a trip down memory lane...

Here's another wrinkle is my browsing experience - today I'm trying Opera. So far it seems to combine the speed of IE with the pop-up killing and cookie management of Mozilla. It might even be faster than IE. It does not seem to know when to reload dynamic pages, though... Stay tuned...
[Later - no dice. We have two show stoppers - ads in the header (or pay $40), and trouble rendering sites with complicated CSS. That's why I stay away from CSS layouts - but a lot of people use it now. And they test with IE and Mozilla. Too bad, because Opera sure is fast.]
