We interrupt this broadcast to thank our sponsors for supporting ReadWriteWeb. We have a great line-up of sponsors, all supporting RWW's mission to provide in-depth coverage of Web Technology trends and products.
Of course we're also thankful for a passionate and smart reader base. We've made improvements to our commenting system over the past month, so we hope you're noticing a faster system. And yes, OpenID is coming ;-)
