  • There are advantages and disadvantages, but the backend has improved greatly, which allows us to refine the public facing portions more effectively. I'm always happy to receive and discuss feedback though.

    • I was reading your O'Reilly blog yesterday [] and saw in the comments a reference to a follow up post you were planning. But the entry was from 2006 or so, and I couldn't find a link to your blog's archives. If such a link exists, it isn't evident. I was able to click on your profile, then click on "blog," but that gave me only recent entries (admittedly, a lot of entries, but still not going back near as far), with no apparent link at all to get to older posts. Alternatively, I was able to click on a calendar month on the right, but that brought up posts from everybody, not just you.

      Actually, checking on this, it appears that this isn't your O'Reilly blog; it's the "onlamp" blog. But it's still next to impossible to find just posts from you in a specific month. I suggest some or all of the following:

      • A link to "older posts" when I click your profile and then click blog.
      • A way to select an author's posts before or after selecting a month in the calendar to the right.
      • Completely dispensing with the "onlamp blog" idea, making each author's posts belong to that author's blog, and making "onlamp" a tag or category.
      • Going back to the previous entry when you blog about something related, as you indicated in comments you were going to do, and adding a link, since obviously three years down the road some moron like me is going to be unable to find it. :)
