Dave's new idea

Dave Winer has made a conceptual change to the way his blog is presented. The front page now only shows his postings from today. Past days are accessible from the calendar control in the right column.

Apparently there is also a much richer system for viewing past entries by category, I haven't really explored that yet.

For me, the big change here is that to read earlier days, I must remember to click on the calendar and view them individually. I used to be able -- and on most blogs still can -- start at the top and read downward until I see an item I already read.

Dave's experimenting with new forms. I applaud that. I'm not sure this one is gonna work, but he's been right before, so I'll give it a try.

I know I can click on the "month" link at the very top of the page, and read it the old way, but I still want to see if Dave' on to something.

One immediate request I have is for Dave to add a link at the bottom of each day, that takes me to the previous day. I'm lazy and would like to not have to scroll back to the top and figure out which day to click next.
