Untitled[edit]

This article should be about the weblog. John Gruber needs his own article. Njál 22:54, 15 January 2006 (UTC)

Prod[edit]

Regarding WP:WEB, there are a ton of sites out there that link to DF fairly regularly, as evidenced by the numerous flickr pictures tagged [1] and large number of Google results (837,000) [2]...

Also, the recent MacHeist controversy was heavily featured on the blog. PaulC/T+ 16:03, 30 December 2006 (UTC)

Kinda sorta a source[edit]

Dunno how best to implement this in the article, but I saw DF being cited in a recent post on CNet's News.com.[3] EVula // talk // // 18:51, 14 April 2008 (UTC)

Lack of comments[edit]

I'd like to see some information on the lack of comments (I read somewhere that it is intentional so that each reader views it as a more personal dialog between John and the reader rather than a free for all between John, the reader and 100 other readers. Also perhaps a criticism of the 90% pro apple and 10% against apple articles. 60.241.63.190 (talk) 11:16, 14 October 2008 (UTC)

Weblog Engine[edit]

What weblog engine does the site uses? Anyone knows? I think it could be a relevant thing to note. —Preceding unsigned comment added by 67.8.130.148 (talk) 00:46, 17 January 2011 (UTC)

I assume that it is completely custom, or wordpress based. —Preceding unsigned comment added by 49.196.79.101 (talk) 13:15, 10 March 2011 (UTC)

It's completely custom; you would be moronic to customise wordpress to that extreme, when you could make the system for half the work. 49.188.0.227 (talk) 11:24, 13 June 2011 (UTC)

I guess he is a moron then, since he uses Movable Type: http://daringfireball.net/colophon/ --pankkake (talk) 18:04, 26 November 2011 (UTC)
