Party Leftovers - This Weekend

(e:terry)'s grandfather died yesterday and he is leaving for Utah so I don't know if we will be going anywhere this weekend. (e:ladycroft), this is what is left from the party - we finished the gin during cleanup. You can get it whenever, just give me a shoutout. I should be around most of the evening. If you email me I can get it form anywhere.

Life without a stylus

Has anyone else tried data entry with a stylus? Some of you must have PDAs or phones with a stylus. It is werid at first but then it starts to become familiar and before you know it you can write really fast.

I lost my stylus. I have two others ordered and on the way but in the mean time I discovered that if I cut my thumbails into points I can use them as built it styli. (e:terry) says that I should make this into some sort of clipon stylus tip and sell them. Maybe there is a market.

Another Date with Artvoice

So I had another meeting with Artvoice today. They offered to host us on their new fiber optic line when they get it. That would be so awesome to finally have a local hosting solution and access to a larger audience. Maybe I can finally start to deliver on new mobile features for a wider audience.

On another note, does someone want to collaborate with me on the Buffalo Mobile History Project. It will involve lots of scanning and sifting through historical informations and then delivering it on a mobile location based basis. I plan on doing that one soon.

Artvoice Visit

So I had a meeting with artvoice's Jamie Moses about (e:strip). He seemed to be interested in it. My hopes is that it results in some sort of collaborative situation possibly resulting in shared media resources, hosting, etc.

I have to say that I was thrilled to hear of his banner free commitment to the new artvoice website.

Their web designer seemed like a great guy. He said they are using mambo for site content administration. I got to see a glimpse of what it will be like and I can guarantee that it will be awesome. Their new design looks so clean, the navigation looks simple, and content delivery is greatly improved.

The Lafayette Protest

Both (e:jason) (original post [inlink]jason,244[/inlink]) (follow up post [inlink]jason,245[/inlink]) and (my repsonse[inlink]paul,3831[/inlink]) about the lafayette protest are missing one important angle. That is the angle of someone who attended!. Who went? Anyone have pics to post?

Robbery

This happens all the time and it is exactly why I hate taking the subway at night. It's not the ride on the subway but the time after the subway on main street. I mean if I was poor I would rob me too.


On Wednesday September 14 2005 at 12:12am 2 Canisius students were the victims of an armed robbery at the corner of Hughes and Oakgrove. The students were not hurt.

The suspect is described as a 20 year old black male, thin, 5'10", short hair, large ear ring, red bandanna over nose and mouth wearing a white t-shirt and black cargo pants.

Who is BuffaloRox?

BuffaloRox Says:
September 13th, 2005 at

Alan,

Congrats on a well deserved award. You and Buffalo Rising are two daily must reads. While there are plenty of other Buffalo blogs that are interesting to go to from time-to-time. You two are heads and shoulders above. BTW, I'm not sure how Elmwood strip ended up in there. The navigation is mindboggling and I can't find anything useful.Quoted from: BuffaloPundit » Blog Archive » Artvoice Best of Buffalo

Beyond The Artvoice Awards

Does no one else beyond the site membership notice that (e:strip) is really a quite radical idea. We have combined commercial free local interest, with free publications, a dedicated readership and easy to use software. Why don't more people use it to record their take on Buffalo. Well probably because we don't have a fancy advertising budget and the gloss it takes to get the word out.

There really arn't that many commercial free places like this and not even the local free media lefties have recognized that.

I suppose people are just going to say, well you guys don't talk only about politics or about buffalo events, etc but I think in the end reading about how people's lives revolved around Buffalo has the potential to provide an even deeper insight into life in Buffalo. The more people involved the more obvious this will get.

(e:shawnr) always says that the only way something is going to change is if I start to send out press reports , one of which he wrote for the 10,000th journal entry. Maybe he is right. Anyone want to be the (e:strip) PR person because I seriously cannot take on another roll?

[size=m]Some fun publicity ideas[/size]
Maybe we should start a campaign to do some Buffalo specific media archiving activities. What about scanning in as many historical photos of downtown as possible and tying this in with some sort of online mapping and notation software. I mean google has satellite imagery but who has mobile historical overlays. Anyone interested? I am making that my next project. I want to be on any street corner downtown and be able to peel back the layers in time from my cellphone. there are no limits to what can be done, the problem is getting people to know about these projects enough to make them worth while.

bitterness

I promise this is the last time I am going to write/think about this. I am still biter that Buffalo Rising won Best Buffalo Blog. You may ask why so biter all of a sudden.

It was spured on by my investigation into their source code today. While I knew they or their designers did not make any of the software that stores and displays their data I did think that they came up with the look. I keep hearing so many people talk about their fabulous design. It is a prefab blogger style sheet made by another company. How much more generic can it get?

Here are some other basic permutations on it




If another non-commercial entity had won, I would not have bothered me half as much, but it wasn't. What made the words of three people for such a short period of time more worthy than the 11,000 journal entries of hundred of people over three years. I think the answer is money and advertising and I guess we will always lose at that and need to learn to just not care.
