Newsletter – Best of the Web

I read a lot on the internet, and by a lot i really mean a good lot. The issue which I like most others face is, what to read and where to constantly get that good content to read from.

In a tiny effort to help others from this struggle I’ve started a weekly newsletter in which I share some 10 links, mostly interesting articles across various subjects (tech to literature, economics to biology) and any interesting website/app/video/book etc that I come across while surfing the internet.

I started the newsletter a couple months back and have sent some 9 newsletters so far. Here’s what one of the readers had to say

Slideshare: Newsletter Setting Bug

While creating an account on Slideshare I stumbled upon a bug(assuming it’s not intentional).

Slideshare has tweaked its signup process for some time(we’ll talk about that some time else) and the lower half of second form(yes second) of signup looks like this.

As you can see clearly I’ve NOT selected the newsletter option here but when after signing up I checked the email subscription settings here’s what it looked like.

Exactly my point, whether you choose the newsletter option or not, you will still get the newsletter as this option is checked by default. To confirm my finding I created another test account and I ran into this bug again.

Hope it’s a bug and Slideshare will kill it soon.

PS: There’s another bug with that newsletter that I’ve quoted a few times in Twitter too. I get 2 copies/emails of newsletter everytime they send it

two emails per slideshare newsletter

While you are on it fix it too Slideshare. Thanks !!

Update: As rightly pointed out by Gaurav in a comment below I was getting two mails because I had two accounts and it’s NOT a bug. MY BAD !!
