Managing Updates

In contrast to printed media, updates are easy to apply on the Web. This flexibility while liberating can be used for sleazy purposes, e.g. to hide mistakes.

Here’s how I’ll manage updates until I find a better system.

  • Deletions in posts will be marked up with <del> tags and hidden from view by default.
  • New and modified text in posts will be visibly identified with an Update: lozenge.
  • “Pages” like About are intended to be ever-changing, living documents so changes will not be noted individually. Instead, the last modified date will be shown under the title.
  • Minor corrections to spelling and grammar will not be noted.
