If you follow the TR blog you know that I’ve published a draft of my August feature on “continuous computing” over at our new satellite blog. (Click to: Part 1, Part 2, Part 3, Part 4.) Traffic at the new blog has been brisk, especially since it got Boing-Boinged on May 27. So far, this little experiment in reader participation has been highly educational and enjoyable.
Now I’m heading into the final stages of revisions, which means incorporating the suggestions of my editor (Jason Pontin), our top-editor (David Rotman), and of course, the readers of the blog, who have been leaving some really useful comments. This is the moment when your contributions could have the biggest impact. I need feedback about three specific questions, as well as additional thoughts/suggestions/corrections about whatever passages in the piece may get you thinking. All contributions welcome – just surf over to the new blog and leave a comment. Thanks!
