It's even worse than it appears.

  • It's interesting. #
  • People from the blogging world didn't necessarily pay attention to the podcasting world as it grew out of it. #
  • Same with the outlining world, even though outlines play a big role in blogs and podcasts. #
  • Podcasters mostly were not bloggers, or outliners. #
  • And most of the people who know me from outlining (all boomers and graybeards btw) had no idea that I went on to develop blogging and podcasting, even though they were natural outgrowths of outlining.#
  • All these things are connected. They really are.#
  • And no one seems to understand that there is a format that ties all this stuff together. And it's not RSS, although that's important too.#
  • There is a master plan! I kid you not. #

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! :-)
