Yesterday I floated the idea of a news feed for tips that I don’t have time to use. I received generally positive feedback from readers, but a significant number said that they would prefer that the news items not interrupt the flow of posts on our main page. Unfortunately, I’m unable to create something on the sidebar without having to rebuild the template every time — I don’t have the web development skills required for it.
Customer satisfaction is important to us, so I devised a compromise. Every evening I’ll create a set of news items based on the tips I don’t use, but I’ll write them to a static page with a permanent link. I made an icon for the sidebar which links to Gates of Vienna News Feed, and I’ll update it every evening unless circumstances interfere.
Also, if I have time, I’ll put up a brief post every evening to point you to interesting things to be found on the news feed page. For instance, tonight you can find:
– – – – – – – – –
- Muammar Qaddafi’s opposition to EuroMed
- Black holes are racist
- The release of some of the American children from the “Taliban madrassa” in Pakistan
- Jihad in China
- Germany moves to give the vote to toddlers
- France and Libya sign a nuclear cooperation agreement
- And much, much more!
See the news feed for everything.
You’ll have to return here to comment — there are no comment facilities at the news feed page. This is a Stone Age operation.
