Is there a way to know whether anything new has been added without
comparing the number of comments in each section with the number of
comments that were there the last time I visited?

Please forgive my shameless self-promotion. :-)
I discussed the idea of SAS-related blogging (to complement SAS-L)
some folks at SUGI 29, but didn't see any takers, so I thought I'd
a stab at it myself (before any real SAS writers jump in!).
If you're interested in checking it out, here's the website address:
Time will tell if there's enough interest (yours, mine, and Weblogs,
Inc.'s!) and content to keep this little experiment going, but I'll
certainly give it a shot!
Weblogs, Inc., World's Largest Blog Publisher, Announces Three New
Blogs on Satellite Radio (droxy.com), Flash (flashinsider.com), and
Weblogs, Inc., The World's Largest Blog Publisher, Announces the
Launch of 64th through 66th Weblogs, focused on Satellite and Digital
Radio (droxy.com), Flash (flashinsider.com), SAS (sas.weblogsinc.com).
New York, NY (PRWEB via PR Web Direct) December 15, 2004 -- Today
Weblogs, Inc. (www.weblogsinc.com), the largest publisher of
professional blogs, announced the launch of their 64th through 66th
Weblogs, Satellite and Digital Radio (droxy.com) by Glenn Fleishman,
Flash (flashinsider.com) by Saul Rosenbaum, and The SAS Weblog (SAS
(sas.weblogsinc.com) by Ted Conway.
"Howard's moving to satellite radio, so it's a done deal,"
explained Weblogs, Inc. co-founder Jason McCabe Calacanis when asked
about why the firm was launching a satellite radio blog.
When asked about the addition of the Flash and SAS blogs Brian Alvey,
Weblogs, Inc. co-founder, said, "Blogs do a better job of covering
software news than the publishers can because a software publisher is
the least objective news source." Alvey added "Bloggers aren't
directly invested like a publisher or a PR firm, so you can get a
better picture of the good and the bad."
Droxy, the Satellite and Digital Radio Blog, (droxy.com) features
Fleishman, a technology journalist, who contributes regularly to The
New York Times, MAKE, PC World, Macworld magazine, and is also a
columnist for The Seattle Times. Glenn has written several books, the
most recent being Take Control of Your AirPort Network (Take Control,
2004). Droxy.com will focus on content, equipment, industry news, and
'what's next' according to Fleishman. "With the migration of the
decidedly different styles of Bob Edwards, Opie & Anthony, and Howard
Stern to the unregulated content dial of subscription digital radio,
millions of new listeners are expected-adding to the several hundred
thousand currently paying to listen to commercial-free broadcasts,"
Next on the Weblogs, Inc. launch pad is the Flash Insider
(flashinsider.com) blogged by Saul Rosenbaum who spends his days
away in his tiny suburban Philadelphia studio (visualchutzpah.com),
deeply engrossed in interactive and web projects for clients
the U.S. Rosenbaum says that the Flash Insider will "...discuss
actionScript, illustration, animation, interface design and all stops
And Ted Conway will be blogging The Unofficial SAS Weblog
(sas.weblogsinc.com) offering a light-hearted look at SAS - the
world's largest private software company - with related news,
techniques, tips and discussions. Conway has been a happy SAS camper
for the past 20 years - and regularly presents papers at local and
national SAS user conferences.
Judith Meskill, Weblogs, Inc. Network (WIN) Editorial Director, is
