Articles and Editorials

These Articles and Editorials usually appeared in the daily updates to begin with, and were added here afterwards. Content that seems to have more lasting value is edited and sometimes added to, then archived in this section on an appropriate page. Articles are grouped thematically, with recent updates noted. So yes, this is essentially a "best of" blog archive, sorted thematically.

There were originally capsule descriptions of every article, however as the number of articles grew past 150, and the capsule descriptions fell further and further behind, I gave up on them.  Also, it seemed pointless to include short descriptions of every article when their content is quite clear from the title, in most cases.

If you see any errors in articles (bad links, one article pasted into another article's page, etc) please mail me with the URL of the bad page, so I can fix it.  With so many articles and such frequent additions to them all, errors are bound to creep in.

Also, if you have any comments or feedback on a given article, feel free to send them in. Be sure you specify which article you are mailing about, and if you want your comments kept private let me know, or they'll most likely end up added below the article, in a feedback section.
