Hi there,

Mohammad is on vacation so this week after some initial preparation he passed the editing over to me. Don't worry, he'll be back! Soon.

Flavio Poletti seems to be using some interesting substance as he is really on a roll publishing articles. A few of them were added to the newsletter, but there are many more. Check out: ETOOBUSY - minimal blogging for the impatient

Same with John Scoles.

Enjoy your week!
