a little tough love is what these people need

Power to the people!
A little while back I blogged about how the RSS feed for the New York Times movie reviews lacked a title telling you what the movie being reviewed was.

And what to I get greeted with when I open up Vienna this morning? RSS feeds from the NYT with the movie title in the headline! Look, I have a screenshot to prove it!

Now, I am not saying that I am single handedly responsible for this change, but I like to think that my input might have shifted the scales ever so slightly. If you have a problem with something, it really is worth telling the people involved about it. Especially in this day and age of e-mail and faceless communication. The worst that can happen is they ignore you or send a nasty e-mail back. But who knows? You might end up marginally influencing a major publishing house to change their format.

Today is going to be a good day, I can tell.
