The Buzz is finally over: Gates says ‘RSS’

Paying Attention.

Gates finally speaks the ‘R’ word as he highlights the increasingly
strategic role of RSS in Microsoft’s seamless computing direction,
eWEEK’s Steve Gillmor writes.

More on Gates and RSS on IT Conversations’ The Gillmor Gang.

And more on IBM Workplace in my print column, Signal to Noise.

Fahrenheit 9/11 via BitTorrent? It’s a nice idea…

The Doc Searls Weblog blogs: Panning for gold in the bitstream.

Brian Dear says Michael Moore‘s “Fahrenheit 9/11,” which won the Palme D’Or at Cannes, will be distributed via BitTorrent:

a stunning move, controversial documentary filmmaker Michael Moore
announced today that his latest film, “Fahrenheit 9/11”, will be
released by BitTorrent, the popular peer-to-peer file-sharing network.

Interoperability is Good

An associate has a client that upgraded their file server to Windows
Server 2003 and broke my associate’s application. He has a DOS machine
at the client site that handles their faxing and EDI functionality, and
the client can’t get the DOS box to authenticate to the Windows Server
2003. Based on this KnowledgeBase article,
it looks to me like Windows 95 and DOS systems are out of luck if they
need to attach to Windows 2003 shares, as they lack the ability to
encrypt their authentication information. I wonder if Microsoft had
some legitimate reason to break backward compatibility, or if they did
it just to force obsolescence of older clients…
