The Death of the Long Form
Everywhere I turn, I am faced with the short form only. For example, here’s the MEF Documentation.
I’d love to read it, but its in wiki format and you can’t get it all in a pdf. I want to put it all on my reader and take it with me. And I don’t want to put on my monkey hat and convert each page myself.
And don’t even get me started on the MSDN library.
Well, actually, for blogs, you can go over to zinepal and print them out. Zinepal even helps with individual web pages. They made the monkey work of compiling the MEF wiki into a single pdf bearable, but still not pleasant. I used the “Add to eBook” bookmarklet and I’m sure I’ll be using it again. Just watch out for pages that look like this before you save your pdf:
Sorry, an error occured trying to retrieve this document.

Now we’re just waiting for a one-click wiki and msdn lib solution.
