Thanks for all the feedback on the name change! I got a lot of emails and comments about the site redesign and they were all really positive.
The transition was a lot of work (for one guy to manage, at least) and went off as smoothly as I could have hoped. The only thing that really irked me about the process was Facebook not letting me carry over fans of our old page into the new one. They wouldn’t let me rename that old page, either.
I probably should have guessed that Facebook would be so inflexible about stuff. At the very least I would have liked to have more time to develop a contingency plan for that. Oh well. My fault.
So! We have to start from scratch. Thanks to you early adopters, we have enough people on the page to get our own URL. From that, we can now get our own like button as well.
Let’s be friends. Give it a click.
I hate Facebook app spam as much as you do. So I only post one Facebook update per week. I try to make it funny and informative. But if you’d rather that not show up in your feed or if your feed is cluttered enough as it is, just hide our updates. Like us first, then hide us. That’s what I usually do with sites I want to support but consume via separate channels like email or RSS.
I’m hesitant to add any further Facebook integration beyond this. But if they do succeed at taking over the internet, my resistance may ultimately prove futile.
For a change, the last week has been a rather eventful one for market news.
We finally got a little correction, a reminder that 1) the market doesn’t move in a straight line forever and 2) it goes down a lot quicker than it goes up.
