That’s a “smart feed” so you’ll apparently get either RSS or Atom depending on your reader’s preferences. Please don’t ask me to explain how this bit of computer magic works; I don’t actually understand how the water gets in my house, so XML is a bit of stretch for me.

Anyhow, if you’re currently getting the feed through the “www.43folders.com” or “merlin.blogs.com” links, please make sure to resubscribe today then you can delete the old feed from your reader. Cuz they ain’t getting updated no more. Handy, one-click subscription buttons follow:

@Fred: FeedBurner does lots of things that make my life easier and cannot easily be accomplished with a raw feed.

Although my primary interest is the stats they provide, FB also bears the bandwidth burden of handing 10,000 nice people like yourself free content every day. As I’m sure you’ve observed on your own sites, serving XML to lots of people takes a fair amount of pipe—more than I can afford even within the generous limits of a TypePad account.

If you like, Fred, I’d be happy to continue discussing this offline.

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. »
