That's right, it doesn't seem to have support for posting to the stream at this stage unfortunately. So the script based bookmarklets might be better in that case for sure.

Even if this seems like a long Symantec press release at times, it is definitely a fascintating read:
It was January 2010 when investigators with the International Atomic Energy Agency realized something was off at the uranium enrichment plant outside Natanz in central Iran. Months earlier, someone ha...

:P well, someone should be sending an invoice... probably Wired should send an invoice to Symantec for all the 'free' exposure. If nothing else it is a big win for the Symantec marketing department - kudos to them on a brilliant strategy :-)

One of the things I like about WordPress is that there are plugins that handle the little SEO bits you'd otherwise overlook. eg Redirection (which I've used for years) automatically detects changes made to URLs and sets up 301s for them to the new pages. No more broken links or lost Google juice.

One of my clients has a site (not in WordPress) and made a change to the page URL. The only way I found out was when AdWords emailed me (I look after the client's Adwords) to say an ad had been disapproved due to the link erroring. Sure enought the previous URL just gives an error (and to make matters worse, not even a 404). Result: lost Google juice, plus disapproved ad, plus extra work fixing it all up.

Furtunately most of the main CMS are putting this stuff in now - so hopefully in a year or so, issues like this will be automatically handed in most systems.

Agreed, a little bit of link equity may be withheld, but in cases like this where the content of the pages is the same and the URLs are on the same domain (ie as opposed to a redirect from an external site) the loss will be negligible.
