It seems like I am not beyond a little self-promotion now and then. Well, the story goes like this. Paul Scrivens of Whitespace fame also runs Forever Geek, one of those blog/website types that posts news for geeks. Excellent stuff - I'd been reading it in my feed reader for, like, almost since I knew about it, which is around February when the site first appeared. (Of course, when I said "excellent", you will soon realize I have a vested interested in saying so.)
Anyway, Forever Geek was looking for articles so I submitted the search article that was also posted here. That got into Slashdot. Recently, Paul posted that Forever Geek were looking for some new members to join the crew, so I applied - I find these things hard to resist, weirdly. And I got accepted. So now I am a contributing writer on Forever Geek, which I am unashamedly telling you to add to your reading list (Atom feed, RSS 2.0 feed).
Anyway, read Forever Geek. Yeah.
