xHTML is the new standard. Get used to it.

Combined with CSS it makes much more sense to construct web pages using this technology. I woke up to it even more the other day when talking to David Watson of when he told me all their coding is done in xHTML. Since then I've been on a crash course to get my webpages optimized.

destroyed in our greatest national tragedy. But you are wrong.

There are 50+ websites that help people find the status of people the know
who were living in New Orleans. But currently none of the data bases are
synced and it is an absolute nightmare to try to find relevant
information. But a bunch of industrious geeks have stepped up to help save

* Organized swaths of volunteer data entry people to key in virtually
every unstructured piece of data (from craigslist, message boards, etc.)
* Contacted and persuaded many site admins to implement PFIF on their

But there is still a bunch of work left to do!

We still need lots of help
* Scraping and periodically rescraping the data sets
* Helping site admins implement PFIF export for automated interchange
* Deduping
