It's even worse than it appears..

  • Thinking out loud. #
  • It would be interesting if every feed for a site included the site_ID of the site an item came from, and if every item had the ID of the item it came from. Shorten the distance from seeing something that needs editing to actually being able to edit it. #
  • This was one of the big realizations of Edit This Page in 1999. #
  • A WordPress-aware reader might be able to do something with this. Or if it knew that the user owned the site it came from, it could open it in a simple editor. #
  • I was thinking through a use-case and came across this idea. #
  • Isn't it time for there to be a WordPress namespace? After all it's not only a big part of the web, it's also a big part of the feed world. #

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! :-)
