A Blog Around The Clock

Sometimes, you read a blog post on a science blog and think to yourself “Hmmm, perhaps I should submit this one for Open Lab 09″, then fumble to find a blog with a submission button and end up giving up. Not any more!

Bill Hooker was bothered by this enough that he decided to something about it. So, he built a little bookmarklet.

All you need to do is drag this link to your browser’s toolbar:

Open Lab

and click on it next time you have the urge to submit an entry to the anthology. A new window with open, with the submission form in it, ready to be filled out.

Thanks, Bill!

    Note that this is a Bookmarklet of Very Little Brain, and won’t do any autofilling of the form. All it does is pop up the form, in a size that I find convenient for moving around the page so I can see what I’m copying over.

    I will try to improve it but don’t have any skills to speak of, so don’t hold your breath. If you do have skills and want to tweak/upgrade it, please go right ahead! Ideally I think it should remember each user’s personal details and autofill the post title and url.

The site is currently under maintenance and will be back shortly. New comments have been disabled during this time, please check back soon.
