Another week has come to a close, but it’s been a very productive one for me.
April was rather relentless in its assault of ongoing work, but so far this month I’ve been able to make some huge progress on TME projects (the results of which you may not see immediately, but you can see some pretty massive progress on the products page).
This definitely isn’t to say that there aren’t some big things still coming up this month – not the least of which is WordCamp.
So let’s get into the weekly digest.

I’m happy to say, despite how busy things have been, the new podcast is really close to launching now. If I had to guess, it will either be on the week of May 22, and failing that, the week of May 29.
