Hey there, I'm not sure where that came from! Did you find it on Rob's bee blog?

@Charlene, I've forwarded your comment to Richard. I think having an application on the website is a very good idea and have suggested that as well. Good luck!

Hi Debra! It's from Gwent outside of Wales. Disturbing video, the level of gore is pretty extreme. I am sure someone is writing more about this kind of stuff, but I don't know where...

Yeah, it's pretty shocking when you see it laid out in a graphic like this. Brutal times.

Keith! Thanks for commenting. You work at Skitch? I don't think I realized that, even tho you mention Skitch in your post. If you do, let me thank you personally for contributing to such a killer tool. Nice work!! I'm going to have to check out that pattern link. There are some great design pattern resources out there. An obvious one is YUI as well. Looking forward to more posts from you!

A little jaded, are we? :) I'm serious, I think making stuff that is suggestive of greatness can be very powerful. Most big companies have a hard time doing that well, primarily because their decisions to go "simple" are often motivated, as you say, by limited resources, conflicting directives and crappy implementation. But when you're looking at the individual inentors and startups that are making stuff that is "simple" but evocative, it's often because they have passion + limited resources that force tough decision.

Hi Mark! Thanks for commenting. I know I'm one of many people who have parallel blogs on Tumblr, and of course I've used & am amazed by the ease of Posterous. That said, I find it tedious to have to go back and forth from the Tumblr Dashboard to the Typepad Dashboard ad nauseam. I'd really appreciate the amalgam of Tumblr's clarity, reblogging and somewhat passive community & TypePad's strengths. I certainly wouldn't want to see them wither, but I vacillate between advising people to use WP and TypePad and pointing people to Tumblr as their web front end. This is one step closer to an ideal wholesale package. You guys have made some great updates lately. Nice work!
