I am deliberately choosing not to talk about the Amazon – Hachette controversy. I am not without an opinion on the matter, but there is plenty of bias out there on both sides. The story is obviously receiving plenty of coverage….

Category change: News of the Day

I am renaming the News of the Day category to the Daily Links.

When I first envisioned the News of the Day category, I had intended to feature a few stories from the day with a brief commentary about them. I generally draft a post in the morning and add links as the day goes on. Due to other writing projects and time constraints, lately I haven’t always been able to get back to write the commentary and still post the links while the stories are still relevant. I feel the category change will more accurately reflect the actual content. 🙂
