MyBlogLog to track outgoing links


Like Andy, I’m loving MyBlogLog.

Drop a teeny chunk of code into your page templates, and watch which links people click on to leave your site, in virtually real time. I added it last night, and it’s already totally fascinating and instructive.

Nice work, Eric, and thanks for the tip!

A propos of nothing, one...

A propos of nothing, one thing I do like about this app is that it just kind of arrived in what appears to be a pretty solid release (I too have a few little niggles, for sure, but they’re minor considering it’s a first public cut to my knowledge).

No throat-clearing, no splashy campaign, and no 10 or 15 insincere months of “BETA” splashed across the home page. They made something and put it out and now people are going to buy it without having to be brow-beaten with the weaseley “It’s only a Beta!” clause.

Seems like a classy operation so far.

Merlin used to crank. He’s not cranking any more.

This is an essay about family, priorities, and Shakey’s Pizza, and it’s probably the best thing he’s written. »

Scared Shitless

Merlin’s scared. You’re scared. Everybody is scared.

This is the video of Merlin’s keynote at Webstock 2011. The one where he cried. You should watch it. »
