Bayesian Aggregators

Always looking for new ways to spend less time reading blogs, I think that Jim is on to something when he suggests Feedster + Bayesian algorithms to create a new type of aggregator.

Anyone working on this?

Software upgrades suck

I ran an upgrade recently on It was the usual apt-get dist-upgrade to bring things current.

Well, it upgraded a bunch of stuff, including Perl to 5.8.0. That cause MoveableType to die in mysterious ways. So after 2 hours of messing with it, I've migrated my data to MySQL (yes, I was still using Berkely DB, sue me).

If this posts, I guess it's working again.

What a waste of time. As if I didn't already, but now I have a renewed appreciation for why someone might want to use TypePad.

#4 on blogdex and #5 on DayPop

Wow. I just noticed that my PageRank is Dead post made it to #4 on blogdex. There's a first.

More importantly, it has stirred up some interesting discussion on my blog and elsewhere. Check out the comments and TrackBacks.

Update: As Josh points out, I'm #5 on DayPop too. There goes my PageRank for life. How amusing is that?
