Make XML Sitemaps Easily with PHP!
I am a huge fan of simple solutions for the web. So many solutions require tons of tooling or a giant content management system and those things are brittle over the long haul of time. XML Sitemaps help search engines, notably Google but other search engines too. In October 2009 I created this code to…

Blogger has done work to create a migration tool for Blogger FTP users and is doing great communication. You can move to a blogspot blog, (which you could do before) or change from self-hosting to being hosted by Blogger/Google by changing the DNS to point at Google’s servers. This is similar to how tumblr handles…
12-Jan-2010Google reviewing business operations in China
Official Google Blog: A new approach to China: These attacks and the surveillance they have uncovered–combined with the attempts over the past year to further limit free speech on the web–have led us to conclude that we should review the feasibility of our business operations in China.

11-Nov-2008Google: PHDs with Tanks
The other day I was listening to the Stack Overflow Podcast, which features two interesting bloggers who I’ve read for some time: Joel Spolsky of JoelOnSoftware, and Jeff Atwood of Coding Horror. They tend to ramble a bit, and they’re not as funny as they think they are, but I enjoy it. On Episode 28…
