the sensational beginnings of 'yellow journalism.' media as political power. reflect on today: we don't need 'recognized' journalists to do our analysis for us ... all we need are the unfiltered facts, and direct/accurate quotes.

the beauties of zope content management. built a 'print friendly version' for the home page in about two minutes.

freshmeat: dcp portal [content management], stegdetect [for stegosaurus-in-bikini alerts].

macnn: bbedit lite 6.1.2, updated to fix os x issues.
