  • Back to Blogging?

    Paul Carr – Thnks Fr Th Mmrs: The Rise Of Microblogging, The Death Of Posterity by constantly micro-broadcasting everything, we’ve ended up macro-remembering almost nothing.

I was a bit frisky on the controls and the AJAX-y WordPress UI flipped from showing comments awaiting moderation to comments approved before I could stop myself from clicking, Delete All.

  • A picture is worth a thousand words – Yahoo! Shortcuts for WordPress

    When I write a blog post I make heavy use of the tabs in my browser so that I can switch back and forth between the blog compose screen and other screens where I do my research. I usually have my trusty image editor running as well so I can crop an edit any images […]
