    Maybe this is a stupid question, but I tried googling it and it went nowhere: what is “wmsy content”?

    Awesome doesn’t quite cover this, it’s amazing. I like the syntax, it’s terse but looks like it easily does most of what we want.

    Marcus, ‘wmsy’ is an attempt at a concise widgeting/templating system. But if I said that in the blog post the internet would come down on me like a ton of bricks for trying to invent a new widgeting/templating system.

    So I prey on the laziness of the internet by not telling it what I’m up to but showing it pretty pictures. I had not counted on you. You may be too un-lazy for the internet.

    (Bryan is a co-worker and knew what I was working on and so we can’t really conclude whether he is lazy enough for the internet or not. But thank you for the positive feedback, Bryan. Suggestions on alternate short terms to use instead of ‘stream’ appreciated. I’m thinking “flow”?)
