Spiral staircases in medieval castles are running clockwise. This is because all knights used to be right-handed. When the intruding army would climb the stairs they would not be able to use their right hand which was holding the sword because of the difficulties of climbing the stairs. Left-handed knights would have had no troubles, except left-handed people could never become knights because it was assumed that they were descendants of the devil.

Thanks for the features! On a scale of 1 to 21, how much does @k00b enjoy crafting the newsletter each week?
I used to draft a newsletter for several years and it became a bit tedious after some time. Certainly easier not needing to go hunting across the webs for all the content. But curious as a founder how much value it and SN live brings to your weekly routine.

I wrote a script a few weeks ago that does all the boilerplate for me. If I'm not distracted I can get it done in an hour:
  1. run the script
  2. move any truly meta stuff to top meta
  3. re-read and write 1-2 sentences for each of the top 5 stories
In general I enjoy it if I'm not overloaded with work otherwise or hankering to work on something else. It, along with SNL, put me in a weekly State of the Union mindset which is healthy I think, but it can be hard when I'm already tender from the work week. I would say they cost me 4-6 hrs/week on average if we account for my probably abnormal and high task-switching costs.

Everything alright there, k00b? Losing track of time? Haha

The unappreciated benefit could be newsletters of the newsletters. The ability to a quarterly or annual edition based on an equal distribution of content over time.
Can say selfishly as a user, it really is worth those hours, but half a day a week is quite the investment. Perhaps you could post that as a bounty job each week if/when things get busy(er). Especially as you have now laid-out the methodology. But I suspect SNL is the bulk of those hours, in addition to ‘normal’ site usage.

Oh newsletter of newsletters is a cool idea!
I also appreciate the validation of the newsletter. No plans to stop and I hope I can keep doing personally.
Great round up and great work. Thank you!
