She flows like a river of bass vibration

She flows like a river of bass vibration at the DNA Lounge. Jamie Zawinski, former programmer for Netscape and former contributor to the Mozilla project, has owned his own nightclub for some time. This pearl of the SF night scene also sports webcasts both audio and visual to go with its ubersexy public internet kiosks that run Linux.

I recommend reading the archives, too, cause it's fascinating to see the amount of beaurocratic bullshit that jwz had to go through to get the club up & running.

> flows like a river of bass vibration

You're talking about that rubber bass that sings "take me to the river, drop me in the water," right?

This nightclub - is it making money? Or is Zawinski still acting as his own venture capitalist? I recall when Apple co-founder Steve Wozniac put half his net worth into a thing called the "US Festival."

Maybe he should spend two grand to put up a decent looking web site. I normally don't criticize people for bad web design, but come on he programmed for Netscape. He must know one or two people that can make a good looking site...

I love this article about "Netscape Time," and its mentioning of Jamie:

Suddenly, without warning, Zawinski's computer decided to reboot. All his pending fixes and unsent e-mails -- an electronic record of hours of drudgery punctuated by flashes of inspiration -- were vaporized.

Zawinski screamed.

He pounded his fists and knocked over his computer.

His chair, now a four-legged projectile, flew across the room. He put on his coat and left.

Ah, tina lives in berlin her voice so seldom on my machine is here tonight and I'm on the market and when I'm on the market words move faster wire and clouds move thin between us like a skin like a salty skin for a seed of fat circles smiling smiling her voice so intentionally smiling
in the clouds between us...

These are my intentions

Talk about missing the point, geoff. -- "I think my standards have lowered enough that now I think `good design' is when the page doesn't irritate the living fuck out of me."

pearl of the SF night scene

if you happen to visit san francisco, please do not take that assessment too seriously. with all respect to jwz and his efforts there, DNA has only been (re)open for a short time and has a little ways to go before ascending the throne of SF nitelife.

Geoff...it's actually not "bad" web design at all. It's more like "no" web design. The focus is on useability. It's a great site.

(I'm a web designer btw...)
