I must apologize again for the unintentional interruption in services this week—life has been getting in the way of TOP recently (though all is well. In fact, one of the "issues" I'm dealing with is that I've gotten not one but two consecutive uninterrupted full nights of sleep, a great rarity in my life. I've no idea what I'm doing right but I hope I can keep doing it.
Insomnia, on the other hand, is good for getting work done).
At some point—come to think—I should get the cloud-mind's input on ideas for how TOP might usefully grow from here. It seems we've almost reached the limit of my own (limited) ability to do everything...although all that's really begun to suffer is the time I have to a) take pictures and b) write articles, which (you perceive) is not a terribly desirable condition. A day at a sports event filling up a CF card and half a day writing about it are enough to plunk me solidly behind the eight ball. TOP, meanwhile, has reached that awkward stage of development where it's practically too big for everything to be done by one person but not big enough to support any staff. I've been wrestling with this a bit of late.
But I digress. Ctein's column will appear first thing tomorrow morning (early—I can program it [UPDATE: Not so early. I wrote this before I heard Steve Jobs had died, and I'd like to leave Steve at the top of the site during the morning tomorrow]), and then I'll get back to work! Apologies again to regular readers for the slim pickins' so far this week.
Mike, TOP's Director of Diffused Slackery
