Live Update? Is that a terrible notion?
I'm clueless in the world of coding, HTML, CSS, and whatever else is used on this site, but I think it would be absurdly cool if the blog automatically updated itself whenever a new post was released. Liveblogging, if you will.
It might not be feasible, what with there already being complaints about "terrible load times" (I personally have not had any problems), but I think the notion really works with the feel of the Verge.
