Admin: Why things are kind of slow around here
Merlin Mann | Aug 13 2007
Pardon a meta post, but I wanted to offer an apology for the paucity of new feature-length posts here recently, as well as to provide some context for where that time's been going. A little "behind the scenes" insight, if you're curious.
Until this summer -- apart from the occasional guest post and the wonderful ongoing assistance of our intrepid wiki and forum moderators -- 43f has been a one-man operation. The content stuff, I could handle, but I'm the first to admit that a lot of useful features have gone unimplemented, and a humiliating number of technological broken windows have stayed well and truly broken. And, so, as the site approaches its third anniversary -- and especially as it has become my de facto "job" -- I decided it's time to get serious and to get some help.
With the wonderfully able assistance of my consigliere and president-for-life, Ben Durbin, a big chunk of my time this summer is going toward changes under the hood across 43 Folders. Big changes. I don't want to get into too much detail or risk overcommitting, but, suffice to say, we're working on making improvements that the regulars here will really enjoy.
So I ask your patience and forbearance, because if you enjoy the features and the longer pieces and the original tutorials and reviews, things are about to get more interesting and diverse. But to get to that point, I hope you'll forgive me a handful of Mondays without a drop-dead classic. Given that I'm in this for the long haul, I have to think it's best if the broken windows get fixed and a few fancy new ones get installed alongside.
Thanks a million -- I really hope you'll stick with me, and stay tuned.
