A new tab on Scripting News

A picture named blog.pngThis is so recursive, I can't tell you how confused I am, I can only imagine how confused others are. But it works, so here goes.

I just added a new tab to Scripting News, called Liveblog.

It is based on the RSS feed for my liveblog.

The liveblog, as its name suggests, is faster than Scripting News. It contains notes from my work, ideas that are too long for tweets, or that I want to come back to later.

The liveblog is more casual than Scripting News. Not sure what that says about Scripting News. I've always wanted it to be loose and friendly, but there you go. I am posting regularly to the liveblog now, so if you want to follow me, that should be on my home page too, it seems.

Hopefully at some point there will be a "singularity" event where it all collapses down to one thing. But for now, all my feeds meet up on scripting.com.

And yes, I plan to release the liveblog software. But it's a tricky bit, and I want to get it right before letting it out in the wild. It's can be hard to change software after it's released, and I'm still learning a lot about this.

PS: It seems like today is a good day to take a screen shot of the Scripting News home page. Continuously updated since 1997.

PPS: Thanks to my friend Hugh MacLeod for the excellent cartoon in the right margin of this post, from the early days of blogging.
