Brian, Rod, and glenn have launched the Boston Web Technology Forum, a group blog documenting (and hopefully instigating) innovation in the local Boston web scene.
Their initial article is on the relaunch of Ajax calendar startup Kiko (the original!), and how its new features stack up against 30Boxes (the contender). Biggie vs. Tupac style.
Looks promising, Brian’s coverage is deeper then the Techcrunch patented drive-by review, and Rod in particular brings the biting insight which is shaping up to be the UK most successful 21st export.
The topic being calendaring I couldn’t resist going all pundity in the comments.

I’m sure if I could ever get Zillow to load it could be interesting, and for many out there I’m sure HealthLine is useful, but would someone hurry up and launch a vertical search that allows me to find hotel rooms with fireplaces or better yet cabins with woodstoves? (In other news, unseasonably warm or not, I’m tired of New England winter)

After a rather long hiatus, Boston.rb is reasonably likely to meet Feb. 7th. Website seems to experiencing the dreaded 502 Bad Gateway error (umm, yeah, secrets out, Rails hosting is non-trivial), but jump on the list for more info. (or at least join in the confusion)

We’ve been talking about a move to New York ever since I moved back from Seattle, just over a year ago. (Boston, as much as we like it, has always been a way station)
Recent events have moved up our timeline (which had been lazily extending itself for months) and now we’re looking to make a move by the end of the year. (as in 18 days and counting)
So we’re looking for housing, either short term, or not, immediately, if not sooner. Any tips would be great. (ideally something more then “Brooklyn, baby, Brooklyn”)
And I’m taking this change to seriously start looking for the next gig, which has been on the back burner. If you read this blog you have a sense of what I do, and what I’m interested in.
If you happen to know a team doing cool and innovative work, that could use a LAMP(R) hacker, syndication guru, and/or calendar wonk, put them in touch. Additionally if you know someone interested in getting some perspective on the evolving nature of the Web, the network, or open source from someone who has been engaged in the work and community for 8+ years, I’ve been know to wear that hat as well.

Nothing quite like the hangover from one of Mako and Mika’s famous sushi and Debian parties.

Been meaning to make it to Boston PHP all year, and while tonight’s topic doesn’t look terribly compelling, better late then never.

In October. Unbelievable. See you all in May. (just in time for Boston’s new tornado season?)

no is the only part of the word that I heard,

**update 2005-11-1: ** In fairness to Boston, every day since has been stunningly beautiful, sunny and 70 degrees. Supremely odd weather to have after getting several inches of snow.
