    Suggestion, can you add simple template magic (like some blogs have a “read more” link in their RSS to see the whole article), to cut out the team bios?
    Currently in Google Reader, the article is about 3500px high & only about 300px is content, over 90% is bio stuff. Or maybe some template magic that provides a link to bios in feeds, but expands on actual pages.
    To be honest, if Mozilla Hacks wasn’t included in the Planet feed, I would of unsubscribed by now. Which is a shame since I quite like the Weekly links

      I’ve tried something new in Mozilla Hacks Weekly for June1th.

      Glad you like to read it!

      Then, of course we want you to like Planet Mozilla, but if that’s the only reason perhaps you should subscribe separately to this blog.
