I’ve just finish checking this years roster for PHP Quebec Conference 2008.
The list is quite good. Lots of interesting sessions, some not-so-really-php sessions. But this year, there is no Rasmus
I’ve always found him interesting to listen to and inspiring. It’s quite interesting to see what challenges he’s seeing at Yahoo.
Between the lines, he gives a lot of tips. Is it just me who likes him talking ?
I’m sorry that he’ll not be in Montreal this year. Maybe he didn’t like the food last year lol.

Silently Bell Sympatico updated their terms and service affective by the May 15,2006 but all the news papers and Slashdot figured it out now a days.
Paragraph 17 of the terms and conditions of Bell Sympatico Service, it says:
User Information; Other Information. Your messages may be the subject of unauthorized third party interception and review. An individual with Internet access can cause, among other things, damage, incur expenses and enter into contractual obligations while on the Internet. All such matters are your sole responsibility. Your Service Provider has no obligation to monitor the Service, any content or your use of Your Service ProviderÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s networks.

That means they’ll tell you to the big brother if you download mp3s from your favorite bittorrent site.
Also by talking to friends I learned that all the ISPs in Canada doing the same thing already but Bell is the first ISP to announce it on their ToS.

After watching the Longhorn- RSS and Browsing Teams 1 hour video, I was so amazed. At first it was something really unexpected from Microsoft. Supporting RSS at OS Level? Having APIs for RSS? Is Microsoft approaching to the open source guys by supporting RSS deeply?
Days passed and I see the things much clearer.
After reading this passage, you’ll understand the Microsoft way and Microsoft’s idea about computers and computer users (plus developers). The question you should ask to yourself is “What is an Operating System?”

A new website is coming up.
It seems like a nice idea derived from Flickr.
Flickr has a nice idea to organize photos. You can organize them as sets.
Howabout a photo site for your travel photos that you create sets out of it… It’ll surely create a community around it. I hope they market it well.
Here are some screenshots.
