New Bluegrass Find!
If you are a Bluegrass fan (especially if you have a broadband connection) you need to check out BluegrassBox. Similar to what etree does for jam bands (including some bluegrass stuff) BluegrassBox supports the distribution of recorded live shows. These are all done by fans at shows with bands who have a supportive taping policy. That means they are all legal. Now downloading is a little tricky, so take you time to READ the FAQ. But even if you can't get the downloading part down BluegrassBox hosts a streaming radio site of their hosted shows. (Both Dialup and Broadband) I'm enjoying Sam Bush's set from Merlefest 2000 right now. Purists Beware: many shows tend toward the Newgrass/Jamgrass genre, you have been warned!posted by Tim- 8/06/2003 8/06/2003 09:57:00 PM

Google vs. The Blogosphere
Everyone knows Google is an amazing search tool. But has the nature and explosion of blogs started to erode its accuracy and usefulness? Several A-list bloggers (among others) are discussing just that. It helps to understand the primary way Google indexes pages for search results and the heavy linking done between blogs.
Reilly on Golf
The British Open has come and gone but this piece from Rick Reilly at SI is an amusing look at the craziness at the heart of the USGA's rule book.posted by Tim- 8/03/2003 11:13:00 PM
