Yeah, thelist could be notified of the change, and request that those 
who would like to be credited for their tips signup for a www.evolt 
account.  After a period of time allowed for people to do that, tips 
that cannot be linked to a Drupal acct could default to an anonymous 
user, perhaps named "TheList" or something.  It's not worth getting 
messy with setting up Drupal accts dynamically or anything.

Hmm, another thought - maybe instead of making the tips posts, they 
could be put into an RSS feed and published in the Drupal site that way? 
  That would circumvent the need for authors to have a Drupal acct.
