Al3x on Comments and Buckets

Alex Payne explains why his weblog doesn’t have comments. (He’s right about that: comments destroy weblogs.) The right place to respond to a weblog is on your own weblog.

Earlier this month, Payne wrote a short essay against Everything Buckets – programs like Yojimbo, Evernote, Devon, and Curio that are intended to hold lots of assorted stuff.
