For those of you who have followed us from the beginning, you’ll recall that the first version of the site included a subscription feature that allowed users to receive short, plain-text email updates each time we posted new articles. Well, somewhere between our initial home at Lunarpages, our subsequent moves to Slicehost and then GoDaddy and now our final home here at (mt), that functionality was misplaced. Now it’s back and available in a sidebar widget as well as on the revamped subscribe page. You won’t get spam and your address won’t be compromised. You’re authorizing us and only us to send you a short, plain-text notification when we post new articles.
The second new, shiny widget you’ll notice below the subscription form is from Skribit. It’s a new service that provides a very fast and anonymous way for anyone to suggest topics for future articles, podcasts or interviews. It’s faster and easier than using the feedback form, and it also makes your suggestions public so that other readers can quickly and easily ditto the suggestion. If you want to see an article – or more articles – about the buyer’s premium, Internet bidding, auction calendars, tech rumors or skepticism, type it in and submit it so we can get on it.
