ShopBot has been publishing Web Columns since long before blogs emerged on the scene. We intend these columns to be more instructive and archival in nature than is typical of most ‘blogs’. But the emerging blog format and organization offers a much more dynamic and useful way of handling and categorizing all sorts of material. So we’ve created a new WebColum/Blog format and during November/December 2009 will be moving our Web Column postings to this new format to make it more easy to find the stuff you are looking for.
We’re also hoping it will encourage more contributions and perhaps some commentary. Let us know if you’d like to become a regular contributor to our Web Columns.
Comments on Web Columns
Each Web Column author individually decides on whether they wish to open a particular post for commentary. In order to prevent spam and make the discussion as relevant and helpful as possible, the author then decides whether a particular newly-submitted comment contributes to dialogue and should be posted. Typically, comments are accepted on only an author’s most recent postings.
