Beard on RSS vs. Atom news feeds
Jeff Beard has an interesting post this morning, The Great RSS vs. Atom News Feed Debate, about the decision by Google-owned Blogger to use the Atom format rather than RSS for Web log syndication.

New Web site "makes it happen"
Having worked on the team that created it, I am pleased to announced the launch of the totally redesigned Web site of Jaffe Associates, the business development consultancy for professional service firms where I am a vice president. The site showcases the key Web technologies and design elements that we at Jaffe recommend to our own clients. These include buttons that make it easy to e-mail or print a page, to adjust the font size of a page, and to navigate the site more easily. The design is intended to reflect the firmís tagline, "Making it Happen."
