How do I know that I do well at maintaining my DGD site, and generally at keeping track of what's going on with DGD software? Well, today I just beat three unrelated projects to their own public announcements, all in the same piece of e-mail. This isn't the first time I've beaten projects to their own announcements. And it's not that big a community.
How can you feel really, really well-informed? Compare yourself to computer programmers ;-)
