Blogs and editorial integrity

Summary:In my last post a gentle reader (using what I can only hope is a nom de plume) pointed out that I had written moving to Windows rather than moving from Windows. One of the peculiarities of writing is that you can read and re-read something you've written and keep seeing what you meant to write rather than what you've actually written.

In my last post a gentle reader (using what I can only hope is a nom de plume) pointed out that I had written moving to Windows rather than moving from Windows.

One of the peculiarities of writing is that you can read and re-read something you've written and keep seeing what you meant to write rather than what you've actually written. (It also highlights the grave danger of writing without sufficient levels of caffeine in my system...)

So, I've corrected the original post by striking out (like this) the incorrect text and adding the correct word.

The reason that I'm mentioning this, is because I want ZDNet readers to know that we bloggers have the ability to edit posts after publishing them, and that I promise not to "disappear" content from a post if it turns out that I've made an editorial blunder or stuck my foot in my mouth. I reserve the right to strike out text and correct it later, or to add (with a notation) additional information to a post later on -- but I will not simply hide my errors and pretend that they never happened.
