As I generate more and more content for this site, I increasingly worry that I’m repeating myself. Have I already written that anecdote about burying Han Solo in the backyard before? Have I referenced that article about gay robots already? My memory is poor, and I often write entries at maximum thinking and typing speed, causing plenty of room for errors.
I want a Movable Type plug-in that, when I click ‘Save’, parses my database to find possible matches for the current entry. I’m not going to explore how this might work programmatically, as I’ll only embarrass myself. And it’s not only a question of checking for repeated links–I want to ensure that I’m not retelling anecdotes and related info. Regardless, such a plug-in would cut down on my anti-repeat anxiety.
