Matt is really whipping his site into shape. He's added a section called More that features longer essays and articles. His Reflections on SXSW from last year has me feeling worse than ever that I won't get to go this year. But at least I got a chuckle from Matt's URLs (like "a.wholelottanothing.org/more.blah").

I meant to post this a while ago, but Cal did a little IE only DHTML experiement along the lines of the 4096 entry I pointed out last week.
From ASPToday comes this article on XML Normalization:
How can we ensure stored data remains stable, secure, and accurate? Answer - normalization, which keeps data clean by doing things like making sure data is atomic (only one value in each cell) and not duplicated in several different tables. W3C has a new standard called the XML Schema, which addresses XML data integrity directly - in this article, Alain Trottier suggests how you can apply data integrity theory to XML using these schema.
Hey look! Matt put together a MetaTalk forum for The 5k Contest!

We built a little poll application for the5k.org. Go vote on how the 2001 contest should be run, with two categories or just one.
Mozilla's Web developer documentation has a plethora of useful links, among them a couple of handy grids which chart Core DOM Level 1 and HTML DOM Level 1 standards support in IE5, Mozilla and NS6 on the 3 main platforms.
In the spirit of my father/son collaboration post of yesterday, I am going to let you in a little secret, but you have to promise not to tell anybody. Here is a song that my dad wrote (melody and words), and that I put to music and recorded with my friend Jon. I find my performance incredibly embarrassing, so I am not sure why I am posting this. Perhaps it disarms its power to embarrass by sharing it with you. Or maybe not... At least it was fun to work on something collaboratively with my dad. You should try it.

Did you know that Robert Altman's teenage son wrote the lyrics to Suicide is Painless, and has therefore made more money through royalties from the movie MASH than his father received as his flat director's fee?
