Site News

This newsletter is rather long. It's been long for, well..., a very long time. It's also up to a week out of date, it being a weekly newsletter and all.

We took a good look at ourselves and realised we needed to cater to the short attention span, and so have launched a new version of the newsletter called The Daily Build. Each weekday we'll include only the top 20 articles posted in the previous 24 hours, along with a cut-to-the-chase list of the top 5.

The weekly blatherings by me will remain weekly, and switching back and forth between the weekly and daily versions is just a click of the button (OK, two clicks - call it an innate need to protect against accidental clicks). Please enjoy, and send us your feedback and suggestions.

Switch to the Daily Build

Happy Canada Day for yesterday, and Happy 4th of July for those who will be celebrating it this Wednesday. Being from Australia I can only look in wonder at countries where the majority know more than the first two lines of their national anthem. I am humbled anew each year.
