Since Sunday is the 27th anniversary of blogging at scripting.com (or anywhere, for that matter), let's make that the day that the doors officially open for Drummer. There will still be things to do at that point, and that's ok. As they say software is a process. #
It's a fitting moment to flip the switch, because Drummer will open the doors for a new fluid style of blogging, based on outlining. To create a post, you click the big plus icon and start typing. When you're ready to publish, choose a menu command. No more slogging your way through Wordpress menus or a static site generator. It all happens in a second or two. And making a change to your blog is as easy as making the change in your outline, and publishing -- again -- just one command and a couple of seconds. Welcome to the world where tools for thought meets publishing. Blogging at the speed of thought. Where nothing gets in your way.#

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! :-)
