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.
