Work pressure has kept me from posting as much as I would like to, so I set up the GoV news feed to make use of all good tips we receive every day. I might have blogged on some of the material if I had had the time, or I might not. But all of it may well interest our readers.
Any news feed that I set up has to take as little of my time as possible to maintain, given the circumstances. So no solution will be ideal.
Before I rewrite the code for it one more time, I’d like to settle on a format that best meets the preferences of all those who have opinions. I like Conservative Swede’s suggestion best. He said:
- - - - - - - - -
As far as I’m concerned you could have the “read further” right after the title!
Having this as normal blog posts beats everything else, because every other solution means messing up the situation for commenting. I know how you feel about discontinuity in the Internet records, so don’t work too hard on the current solution because when you see it in practice, and how it creates discontinuity for the comments, you will find it unacceptable and throw it away.
Keep it as normal blog posts, just as before. Easy and best. And when I wrote “Maybe just a list of the bullets and then a ————.”, I was referring to this:
- Muammar Qaddafi’s opposition to EuroMed
- Black holes are racist
- The release of some of the American children from the “Taliban madrassa” in Pakistan
- Jihad in China
- Germany moves to give the vote to toddlers
- France and Libya sign a nuclear cooperation agreement
If people still think that this is horribly interrupting to the main page, then cut with a “read further” right after the title.
So if nobody comes up with a better suggestion, I’m going to implement the “Swedish Solution” tonight. Let me know before then if you have a different opinion.
