IRC can be funny. It

IRC can be funny. It can be annoying. I can be babylonian. It can be all at the same time. I had this conversation today:

I wish I was going

I wish I was going here, cause everybody else is. Webloggers, take note: there’s a weblog panel at the SXSW – which will discuss why and how this new genre is changing the way we express ourselves on the web. On the panel: Meg Hourihan (, Jason Kottke (B-Swing Inc) and Derek Powazek ( You can now help the panel people by posting your thoughts on… the meta weblog meta log (eh?).

We did a live chat

We did a live chat at work today, after a TV show. Sod that Murphy bastard and his arsehole law. DNS shit prevented us from using the paid for chat software at, so I struggled to find a decent alternative, found one at the quite wonderful… only to find out minutes before going live that the laptop in the studio couldn’t reach that either… so we ended up shouting questions through telephones and running to and from with print outs. One of the A’s in our company’s name proudly stands for ‘Amateur’… mea culpa.

On the town, going drinkies. And she said: ‘It’s really special, what you have.’ And she answered: ”t is, ‘t is,’ and felt the familiar tugging at her heart’s strings. ‘It’ll do you no harm,’ she thought. No harm. ‘What’re you gonna tell him, what are you gonna write?’ And she thought: ‘I should tell him.’ But she won’t.

Damn, I missed the E.R.

Damn, I missed the E.R. epi in which Doug Ross leaves the show last Friday. This is where I got my fix.

I mentioned this before… still don’t know what it is, but it goes on air tonight at midnight: From their press release: Thousands have already registered to Everything is put into place for the big do-tv day on Wednesday 2nd February. At that time, and for the next 24 hours, the whole world will be hooked up to the internet and talking TV.
Hmm. There is this obsession in this country to make TV on the web. Is it the same overseas? Digging through do-tv’s preliminary stuff it does look a little less mundane than I thought and there are lots of little thoughts/polls to consider. This URL is related.
