Back to basics

I signed up for Backpack some time ago, but have not been putting a good faith effort to using it. Recently, I tried to remove a list I made on my front page – I didn’t need it anymore and it was cluttering things up. Problem was, I couldn’t remove the damn thing. Apparently, there’s a glitch. WTF?

I can understand there are some things that may not be anticipated, but this seems pretty obvious to me – if you can put something on a page, you should be able to take it off the page. How often do you keep lists in perpetuity?

This is the kind of stuff that disappoints me about programs – in the race to create the newest and brightest, it seems the basics are often overlooked.

Web 2.0

More and more feeds. Who’s the best for getting this all together? Now with Web 2.0 in the picture, there are even more decisions to make. Just tried Protopage, and now there’s this thing called SuprGlu. Netvibes, too. Where does it all end?
