How come nobody ever told me about The Unicode Blog?

I remember back in the middle of 2005 (when I was getting into blogging and following various bloggers) at some Unicode meeting telling Rick McGowan of Unicode that they should have an RSS feed for announcements.

He thought bit was intertesting, but didn't see a real benefit beyond the announcement distribution lists that had been there for years.

Which is true.

I dropped the matter; I'm no zealot. :-)

Anyway, regular reader Jean just pointed out to me (in response to Unicode 6.0.0 in beta! that I should have linked to The Unicode Blog in the announcement.

Well shucks.

I didn't even know it existed; no one ever told me!

But there it is:

I'll razz Rick about that later, of course.

For now I'll put up this blog, and some time before I get on the plane I'll add the link to the side....

The Unicode Blog is ugly, it don't even get the line breaks right.

Well, I'm not its designer (and don't really care much about design myself anyway!), so I won't worry too much. It does its job....

I'm now trying to get the gang to tweet, and am geting the same pushback you got about blogs way back when. Some things never change :)

There's a French saying about this, isn't there?
