Link authors' names & profiles on a team blog with blogger

If you have several people posting to a blog, you might want to set it
up so that each person's name at the end of their posts links to their profile. Here's how to make it work:
First, what you'll have to do is get the profile addresses for each person who will be posting to the blog. You'll notice that each one looks something like this: where "XXXXXXX" is a particular ID number. Make a note of that number for each person.
Next, add the following code to your template, between the HTML tags:
var team = new Array();
team["First Member"]="XXXXXXX";
team["Second Member"]="YYYYYYY";
team["Third Member"]="ZZZZZZZ";
function makeprofilelink (authorname) {
var pid = team[authorname];
document.write("" + authorname + "");

The nature of the Internet

It never ceases to amaze me; the stupidity of people. As Charles Mackay wrote long ago in his book Extraordinary Popular Delusions and the Madness of Crowds men go mad in herds but only come to their senses one by one.

It seems there are some people who just really do not understand the Internet, and in their rush (or greed) to get rich quickly ignore all the commonsense and warnings of those who like Darren Rowse have achieved some measure of wealth from blogging. How? Darren explains often that his website is not his mail money maker, rather his Digital Photography school website is. He provides a real product for real people.

And so to the point of this article, and the nature of the Internet that seems to have been forgotten in the glimmer of fools gold. As Doug McCaughan sagely observes, people use the web for Information, Utility and Entertainment, in that order.

So where are the fools? I think there are two types.
