After the Deadline, a service that would have saved me countless hours back in the day, is simply an incredible ( and adaptive ) contextual spelling and grammar checker. The service, run by Raphael Mudge, is now part of Automattic and we turned it on live today on WordPress.com. If you are running self-hosted WordPress, there is a plugin at WordPress.org that you should download.
Best way to describe this service is by watching this video and checking out this example of the NYT.

has anyone paid attention to the footer on the After the Deadline site? It says:
An Automattic invention
Doesn’t that strike you as wrong ,seeing that they bought the service?
