Next Month

Next month, we'll alter the publishing of this column. Rather than frantically writing the column around the first of the month and publishing it on these pages a few days later, I'll have it appear in my new O'Reilly Network weblog. Because I get to publish it, you will find out just how late it usually is. If you have any suggestions on other improvements we could make, feel free to

For those who find out about this column by RSS from my author's page, the URL of announcements won't change.

Until next month, when I'll appear somewhere over there -------->.

Sam Smith lives in Manchester, England, and works on interfaces to data. When he's not in front of a computer, he's usually in a theater, probably with MUGSS.
