Yesterday I noticed the photos at top and bottom left hand column weren't displaying. Since they're stored on my website at Earthlink, I assumed a temporary glitch, but when they still weren't there I checked and turns out the site has been accessed too many times this month so has been shut down until the 1st. That means the research pages aren't available, either.
Annoying, but since I have been slack at updating the pages lately, not a huge loss. But I can't understand why this happened since it never has in the nearly 5 years I've had this site. Some phishing or spamming program? Someone linking to my photos?
So if you've wanted the links on left and couldn't get them, apologies. I'll investigate other options, and meanwhile the pages should be available Saturday. If there's something someone really needs now, email me.
Nora Ephron, covering a panel discussion on blogging:
"...that would involve reporting, and I learned this morning at the panel on blogs that when you are a blogger, you are so busy blogging that you don't have time to report.
...what actually happened this morning? Nothing? Anything? Something? Everything? That depends on how you look at it. Which, by the way, is, to me, the point of blogs, and it's what makes their relationship to the truth so interesting.
...I happen to think the Internet is a cosmic, seismic, amazing change, unlike anything that's gone before. Way more than television, it's changing the culture, it's changing the way people think, it's changing the way their brains work, it's changing pretty much everything. Although it doesn't seem to have changed panel discussions."
Read it. Nora Ephron is always funny.
Yesterday I posted a link to Tim Porter's First Draft blog, where he has had some amazing things to say in the last couple days about the future of journalism. The posting failed and lost the quotes I had copied. Nevermind. Just read him.
