Last chance to register for Capitol Camp, taking place Thursday and Friday in Albany, NY. I'll be MC for the unconference/barcamp portion on Friday.

All is well -we rolled out some major new Amendments in Context functionality (had a few minor issues with Oracle XMLDB along the way). Drupal is working well as a platform for our Senate and Assembly web sites -it's great to see how rapidly we've been able to transition to it (away from Vignette). I've now assumed responsibility for enterprise data -and am working on some CMDB/enterprise monitoring, device and dependency mapping initiatives -pretty exciting with respect to scaling our ability to manage a growing and complex technology portfolio.

How are things out in the uninhabitable part of the country (pretty much anything east of New Mexico in my book)?

AS you try to wrap your head around Washington's decision to give 12 Members of Congress the power to push $1.5 Trillion in new spending cuts and/or tax increases thru to mandatory floor votes, sidestepping all normal procedures, you might want to join with the Sunlight Foundation in demanding that this so-called "Super Congress" committee be super open: They should post online daily who is lobbying them and who is giving them campaign contributions, and all their hearings should be webcast live. http://snlg.ht/mYELpV
Congress just pushed through the debt limit bill with almost no transparency. Let’s make sure the new “Super Congress” committee created by this bill operates in the open.

This is fun. You can show your appreciation for all of Congress's hard work these past few weeks. The videos that are up there are great! http://techpresident.com/short-post/internet-getting-together-slowclapforcongress

Check this out -- IMO, this is the most innovative tool for getting in touch with your representatives in the House and Senate.

With every new edition of MacOS, there are the star-billed features that get their name about the title (like fullscreen apps, Mission Control, and Versioning) and then there are the equally-fab supporting characters.

Lion has a new Automator action that makes it dead-simply to turn any website into a floating app. And it's a real app: you can put it in the Launchpad, give it away to people, the works. Details on my site.

It's yet another example of why Automator is one of Mac OS's true standout, all-star features. I can't tell you how many times friends have come to me looking for a solution to a problem, expecting me to recommend a commercial utility, and come away with a napkin sketch of a three-step Automator workflow that does everything they wanted and can be assembled in less than five minutes.
Making Desktop Webapps in Lion. “By the sainted mustache of Charles Foster Kane! Is it ever hot out there! I should write an app that keeps my city's Current Weather data from Weather Underground ...

Gotta agree with professor +Adam Penenberg here on the widespread misuse of the term "hacking" in the media. Of course, that's nothing new.
