Reader Jeff Click emailed to re-remind me of an idea I'd meant to act on last holiday season and never did: the 43 Folders Geek Gift Guide. Whee, presents! I'm also thinking of opening the floor to people who want to write mini-reviews of beloved schwag for use in the guide.
So, assuming a bunch of you are geeks or have a cuddly little geek that you love, what would you like to see covered in the guide? So far I'm thinking:read more »

We are confirmed for tomorrow night at House of Shields from 7-9pm.
Damn. Got a feeling there’s going to be a lot of people there. I hope their Geek Insurance is paid up. So looking forward to this.
Be sure to checkout the updated Upcoming page on the Summit for extra details (esp. with regard to our janky A/V capabilities). See you there!read more »

Web 1.0 is just around the corner, so iron your New Media Blue™ shirt and recharge your ginormous cellphone, because we’re going public, bitch.
So. What remains is to nail down the coordinates. I’m going to a big blow-out on Thursday (the 6th), but I wonder if actual Web 2.0 attendees can clue me to any other major evening events on whose toes we mustn’t step. Spill, please.
Post thoughts and ideas here; watch the Upcoming.org page for news on the final happs.
Like I say, let’s try to make this one better-attended than the last one.
Many thanks to our Web 1.0 sponsors

If you dig reading 43F in RSS or Atom format, please make sure you’re currently subscribed to the FeedBurner link. It looks like this:
That’s a “smart feed” so you’ll apparently get either RSS or Atom depending on your reader’s preferences. Please don’t ask me to explain how this bit of computer magic works; I don’t actually understand how the water gets in my house, so XML is a bit of stretch for me.
Anyhow, if you’re currently getting the feed through the “www.43folders.com” or “merlin.blogs.com” links, please make sure to resubscribe today then you can delete the old feed from your reader. Cuz they ain’t getting updated no more. Handy, one-click subscription buttons follow:read more »

Non-RSS visitors may notice a few little changes to 43F's appearance and functionality this morning, including a slight change to the page layout, the addition of a print-friendly style sheet, plus a number of little widgets and finials sprinkled here and there.
Some of the changes are experimental and others are incompletely implemented, so if you are experiencing any visual blips or functional farts, please email “bugs” at this domain. Thanks in advance for your help and forbearance.read more »

Talking blog stats is dull, tacky stuff, so I usually avoid it like the plague. But here’s a couple data points you might find interesting.read more »

I’ve had a few requests from readers wanting an easy way to fly the colors of The Mothership on their own weblog (or, “blog”). Cool. So, here are a few little badges for that purpose. You know the drill: just copy the included code, and paste it into your page templates.
(And, thanks to everyone who asked for these!)read more »
