Editorial Flow Update, 1/24. Making progress, and I’m pretty happy with what we decided to focus on. Looking to hear more use cases on functionality to edit already published content.

Flying to Madrid on Delta today via JFK to spend ten days with Michelle in Zamora and then ten days with Automattic in Budapest. Rented three movies on iTunes (Forest Gump, The Jackal, and 180 South) to accompany Edit Flow hacking.
Best thing I’ve ever done was go to bed at 8 pm last night to get a full night sleep before travel.
