I'm curious, why the blog rather than articles on the front page of the site?

Can we expect frequent updates? At least once a day would be great - less than that and people are going to stop coming

You've hit the nail on the head with frequent updates - there's so much amazing stuff out there that we needed a platform that we could update multiple times daily. The front page will continue to feature longer articles, important events, releases, videos that we make - things like that. In the mean time, we can share more (and more rapidly) on the Blog. You can expect at least daily updates.

Would love to see a way other than rss to subscribe, email or twitter?

It would be great if any time the blog is updated, there's a post on Twitter about it. I am checking Twitter multiple times a day, but I don't expect I'd be checking in the Blog site that often.

We'll be tweeting frequently when the Blog is updated, but not with every single post. Have you looked at using a feed reader? You can get an RSS feed of the Ableton blog using http://www.ableton.com/blog as the URL.

Who decides what to post? Is it scraped from community sites or is it powered by submissions? (it looks cool, btw!)

Very nice! Thanks!

One small detail: the default title of the RSS feed is "Latest entries", took me a while to find it in my feed list, haha. Would be more convenient to call it... Ableton Blog :)
