Have you ever felt more at peace out in the middle of an open field, with no electricity or machines nearby? This may be an actual reproducable feeling - to be in tune with the vibrations of the Earth.

I just came across the blog at Ibiblio.com after checking out Lyceum, which is an great project I will likely be writing about soon. Apparently the guy who writes the blog has an assignment to do statistics for the Facebook, because he has a whole article just about Freshman usage statistics at a particular school.
Reportedly, some residents are experiencing weak signals and inconsistent connectivity, but the article states that "...there were only 842 help-line calls out of more than 50,000 user sessions in the first 45 days of service." The help line and much of the construction and maintenance of the service was contracted to Hewlett-Packard.
I saw this re-posted at Kottke.com:
Glenn Reynolds makes an interesting analogy about journalism and beer making in his new book:
Especially love the RSS reader. I have tried Google’s and Bloglines and a few Dashboard/Konfabulator widgets, but none of them can match what Netvibes is doing.
I also like getting updates on both my gMail accounts right there, and how they let me discover the IceRocket search engine, which gives you thumbnails and preview panes for websites inside the search engine (but I think it is a Google mashup).
Because I felt like it, I am going to post a link to somebody’s profile on this neat site called Bolt. Her name is Amy, and I guess she is doing a foreign exchange thing in Japan right now, but she is American. the point is, this site lets you share WAY more stuff than video, and in a fun rich-media sort of way… almost. This girl is experimenting with videoblogging, journal-writing, photo-sharing, and even (or especially) music, and it is music she wrote and performed herself! Good job bolt, and good job Amy!
