re: the button
Just a blog-housekeeping note, for my own records: As of today, I’ve installed the Topsy Retweet Button for WordPress plugin.

Thus have I added a true one-click social media widget to this blog. I previously installed CommenTwitter, and it remains in place, but it’s fallen well short of my hopes in spreading this blog’s permalinks. I have to face it: People don’t want to jump through any content-creation hoops just to add to the Twitter-stream. A retweet button is a dead-simple solution, so we’ll see how it goes.

I’ve already seen a few reverse-trackbacks on old posts come back as a result, and that’s what I’m looking for, so it’s so far, so good.
