Reflecting on things, I don't know why I was reluctant to update the directory plugin. Micro.blog has, at least partly, influenced much of what I have been doing with the blog since January.
The idea excited me in the same way Twitter did back in 2006/2007.
Although I had long wanted to mix long and short content, it was the impending launch of Micro.blog that really gave me the nudge I needed.
I think that deserves some recognition.
