1. Laura Kalbag: Avatars. Do they add anything to comments, or are they a waste of space?

    laurakalbag they add significant value to conversations, as they provide a recognisable visual indication of who is speaking and where each comment starts/ends. I am inclined against comments, but would recommend having avatars if you do :)

  2. In the evening () I’m off to a neo-folk session at the Steam Packet Inn, Totnes, with Robin from and some other musicians. Come along if you’re interested in playing trad/new trad/new medieval tunes!

  3. Just pushed a plugin which auto–populates the <ins> and <del> elements with their little–known datetime and cite attributes. Hopefully, coupled with my article update histories and a bit of , this’ll allow for some native-HTML version control type stuff.
