FEBRUARY 12, 2014 EDITORIALLY
Goodbye

Editorially
Editorially makes collaborative writing easy.

Today brings some sad news: Editorially is closing its doors. The application will remain available until May 30, at which point the site will go offline. We encourage all users to export their data.
We’re proud of the team and tool that we built together and incredibly thankful that so many of you were willing to give it a try. And we continue to believe that evolving the way we collaborate as writers and editors is important work. But Editorially has failed to attract enough users to be sustainable, and we cannot honestly say we have reason to expect that to change.
We wish that were not the case — we’ve spent much of the past two years working on the hypothesis that the reverse was true — but today we must be honest with ourselves, and with you: this isn’t going to work.
We know many of you have spent time and energy making Editorially a tool you use every day, even going so far as to evangelize it to your friends and colleagues. For that: thank you. We’re sincerely sorry to have let you down.

INTERESTING: “tiny villages”?

Monday, May 12, 2014

I’ve Seen People Turn Garbage Into Some Cool Stuff. But THIS…. This Is Absolute Brilliance.

I’m sure the “City Fathers” won’t like this.

If they have ordinances about “feeding the homeless”, imagine a city with “homeless housing”?

I am fascinated by “tiny houses” as “interesting” for those that can do it. This is the next step down (i.e., no toilet, kitchen, or power). But I’m sure it’s better than a doorway or a dumpster.

Wonder how long before there are “tiny villages”?
