Thanks to Ernie at shortformblog for the shout. Smartnews thinks shortformblog is smart news. Smartnews is biased. Ernie is a good friend. Seriously, you should bookmark shortformblog, and follow it on Twitter. Ernie has a great voice and distills the news of the day beautifully, skills he learned at now-defunct Link (a young-adult oriented news tab) in Norfolk, Va.

I could imagine, down the road, a site like shortformblog that distills the content from an institution like Smartnews. Throw in some Facebook-style app-madness and “social networking” and you’ve got the Next Big Thing™. Yeah, all you venture capitalists take a number, all right? Our people will get in touch with your people.

Heh. If you’re gonna dream, dream big.

Well, back to the gritty reality of writing about colonoscopy coding.

*All of the posts at Shortformblog are small, so we’re not denigrating the chunky-text mention.
