Editorial nanites

Speaking of typos… Ben Hyde, whose Ascription is an Anathema to any Enthusiasm blog appears over on my blogroll, has added a clever feature. He knows he tends to make a lot of typos in his posts, so he has added a feature to let you, the reader, help him correct them.

He and I had been talking a few months ago about his wish for something to just swarm over his text and fix it — which I dubbed editorial nanites. Since I’ve always had the editing bug (so to speak), I offered to do an editing pass any time he liked. Now anyone with the same affliction that I have can play along!
