I’ve updated my “Secret Weapon”

Even better, Mark Paschal just came through with a cool addition to Radio that allows me to directly share with you my personal subscription list! (Actually, he reminded me of a posting he made about a 10 days ago which described how to do this!)

Radio Userland 8.0 shipped yesterday.

Radio Userland 8.0 shipped yesterday. I was part of the beta tester group for the last couple of months. Badge of honor: my usernum is 1009. The progress of the Userland team was remarkable to watch — a fabulous job! Congratulations to Dave Winer and the rest of the Userland team on shipping “8”! And, additional thanks to all of the other other beta testers who added so much to the process!

While the weblogging features are delightful, my favorite feature in “Radio Userland” 8.0 is the News Aggregator

Doc looks fabulous in his new outfit!

UI Passport at the University of Iowa looks like a useful site to watch (re: digital identity and authentication).
