Having spent so much time writing [and reading] directly on the site, I often overlook other means of consuming this content. I am talking specifically about all of the individuals who receive daily updates via email subscriptions, and those who peruse the site through their favorite RSS readers and aggregators, such as Feedly and Newsblur, or their mobile equivalents, such as Pulse and Flipboard. Don’t get me wrong, I am a HUGE fan of all of the above means of content delivery, but there’s just a quick note that I want to make…

But some of the embedded audio samples via Bandcamp, Soundcloud, or other plugins, as well as YouTube and Vimeo videos are completely stripped out. I’m not saying that you should abandon your favorite app and always visit the website, I’m just pointing out that you may be unknowingly missing some content (including the ability to comment on a particular post).
