Thing The First: For those of you who read Extra Future primarily via the feed, it has undergone a rather serious redesign. Maybe hop out of your feed reader and have a looksee.

Thing The B: I’ve gone ahead and re-activated Disqus-powered comments on posts here. I think we’re good enough friends that I can trust you not to pee in my pool, right? Good.

There is an economy of scale that comes along with comments. Extra Future is small enough (less than 500 hits a day, on average) that we should be able to have a conversation. Here’s to hoping.
