It's even worse than it appears..
To the people who responded to my earlier call for testers for the feed product, it's taking longer than I thought. But I haven't forgotten. It's coming along nicely. Real soon now. #
Over the years I've had a few friends who I knew when they were broke who became fabulously wealthy. They have taught me a lot, probably not what they intended to teach (if they did at all).#
Verge has a new design. They say it's a blogging platform. The home page is a stream (I would say a river). I wish it were more plain. I also wish they cultivated a blogging community of their sources. Maybe they are doing that. Hard to tell.#

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! :-)
