It's even worse than it appears.

  • If you want to blog from an outliner, I suggest the first step is to get the outline data to flow out of your editing tool in OPML, and then write your publishing software to build the blog from the OPML. That way you won't be locked into your editor or publishing software.#
  • There are lots of approaches to both writing and publishing. You won't get the benefit if you don't have a strong basis for interop. #
  • Silos have a long history of being bad for progress.#
  • For most of the last 26 years I've been writing my blog in an outliner. I'm glad that other people are interested in this now. Let's build a new community around this idea. ;-)#
  • The rest is in a Twitter thread. #

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! :-)
