Re: Episode #1 in "Case Studies in Questionable Judgement:" Giving Butner the keys to the blog

This has got some info on a blog and on subsrcibing to an RSS. It's a P2
users list serve.  I thought I would send it as something we could
experiment with. Does anyone know how to do the RSS part?

I must admit, the idea of adding Scott Butner as a guest blogger has
created a great deal of excitement...mostly people excitedly asking me
"Have you lost your mind?  And then when they find out that GLRPPR also
has added Rick Yoder as a guest blogger they are convinced that I have
lost it.

As Executive Director of GLRPPR, I am excited about adding these two to
our Blog (but like George Burn once said...at my age I am excited by a
warm bowl of soup).  They represent what I think the Blog needs...people
with experience in the P2 world and folks who are not afraid to express
their opinion.  I invite others out there to get involved in the GLRPPR
Blog, even if you don't have the golden gifts of Butner and Yoder.

By the way Scott, if you check the 2004 presidential election, you will
find that the majority of the GLRPPR state are blue states!

      It's that whole red state/blue state dynamic.

      Well, that, and the mild buzz they sustain off of fugitive
      emissions from the ethanol plants.

      Oh, and cow farts.  Too much methane can slow down your speech
      patterns.  Kind of like helium in reverse.

      Anyway, I've got a lot of respect for the rock solid values and
      abundant common sense that seems to characterize people from the
      great in-between.  Even if I don't always like the way they vote.

      So it came as something of a surprise to me when the folks at the
      Great Lakes Regional Pollution Prevention Roundtable (GLRPPR)
      asked me if I wanted to occasionally "sit in" as a guest blogger
      on the GLRPPR Blog ( http://lib.wmrc.uiuc.edu/glrppr-blog/ ).

      I mean, I always thought that they had more common sense than

      I've long looked up to the GLRPPR blog as a valuable information
      source -- sitting as it does at the crossroads of P2 and
      information technology. And while I am keeping in mind the
      admonition of Groucho Marx, who famously stated that he'd never
      join a club that would have someone like him as a member, I look
      forward to sharing some ideas about information technology and P2
      with you via this great forum.

      I also plan to do a weekly "P2 Photo Blog" -- well, as best I can,
      anyway -- because a picture is worth a thousand words.

      But is a lot easier to produce.

      Anyway, my understanding is that additional "guest bloggers" are
      waiting in the wings.  So be sure to check the blog from time to
      time, or subscribe to their RSS news feed:


      And if you run across an information technology topic or clipping
      that you think as some interesting applications to P2, let me
      know.   ESPECIALLY if it relates to the chemical manufacturing
      industry, but even if it doesn't.   I'm always looking for new
