After my brief existential crisis yesterday, Alex was kind enough to remind me why I do it this way. I feel better now, thanks.

I just logged into my just-in-case WordPress installation running at v8.baty.net and was bombarded by a half-dozen plugin messages begging for attention and feedback and asking that I “Upgrade to Premium!”. Stop it. WordPress can do anything, but I don’t like how it actually does much of it.

If I wanted to create a new blogging tool from scratch, I would probably build something very close to what Drummer is. It’s too bad I don’t feel comfortable investing time in Drummer.

The bad guys keep winning. How are we letting this happen over and over?


If you have any comments or questions, I'd love to hear from you!
