I'm also getting the @podc Twitter feed going too. It started in 2007, when podcasting and Twitter were both pretty new. #
Rivers are like Twitter timelines except made out of RSS feeds, which are distributed all over the internet, not just on Twitter. So there's "nbariver.com" and @nbariver. They carry the same information, in the same order (newest first) -- one on my server, and the other on Twitter. Similarly, there's Podcatch.com and @podc.#
I know this might be confusing, but it's worth understanding imho.#

You know those obnoxious sites that pop up dialogs when they think you're about to leave, asking you to subscribe to their email newsletter? Well that won't do for Scripting News readers who are a discerning lot, very loyal, but that wouldn't last long if I did rude stuff like that. So here I am at the bottom of the page quietly encouraging you to sign up for the nightly email. It's got everything from the previous day on Scripting, plus the contents of the linkblog and who knows what else we'll get in there. People really love it. I wish I had done it sooner. And every email has an unsub link so if you want to get out, you can, easily -- no questions asked, and no follow-ups. Go ahead and do it, you won't be sorry! :-)
