I was sorry to see my favorite daily news summary site (a newspaper blog?) All Star Newspaper killed yesterday, redirecting to the main Brill’s Content site. I hoped the editor survived the Inside.com merger, even though 50% of the Brill’s staff was cut, but now it seems like that wasn’t the case. It was a good site and I wonder why Brill’s would kill such a great property, but I guess I could read Slate’s Today’s Papers instead.
In the good news column, I finally found a great email client. It took a bit of customization, but The Bat comes the closest to being the perfect mail manager. It has threading, extensive filtering, and a great custom template editor. Eudora has served me well for over five years now, but threaded mailing list messages were just too good of a feature to pass up on The Bat.
