From the ShortFormBlog historical vaults, circa 1969: Robot lands on moon, nobody remembers
Reporter Julius Smith, an embedded journalist on the astronomy beat for ShortFormBlog predecessor “TheShortForm,” was the third person (as robots are people) to land on the moon after Neil Armstrong and Buzz Aldrin, but nobody remembers this, because he was moving too quickly for the cameras, creating fading effects in photos that later led to allegations that the moon landings had been faked. Smith denies the allegations of doctoring to this day. (from the ShortFormBlog Facebook Page's illustrated 113-year history of the blog)

shortformblog:

OK, so there you go. Because we apparently have no life and want to keep our readers happy, we customized ourselves a mobile theme. We didn’t go too crazy – mostly just reworking the Tumblr iPhone theme to do cool stuff with numbers and blurbs – but since those formats make a lot of sense on a mobile phone, it’s certainly worth your reading time. (Note: We had a mobile theme for the old site that some of our older readers might remember – this is mostly different) We’ve only tried this on the iPhone: Let us know if you find bugs! :D

We haven’t revisited the mobile theme in a while, but we spent a while working on this last night, as a fairly large chunk of our readers read us via iPhone or Android. (We’re adding sharing functionality, cleaning up some styles and a couple other things.) We’re not finished yet, but please let us know if you have any issues.
