When you write several tweets containing the same hashtags, you have to type the hashtags again and again.
Twitter autocompletes the hashtag names as you type them, and suggests some hashtags.
Twitter should show the hashtags you typed in your previous recent tweets, first in the list.
But It does not and you have too much typing to do.
I've been wondering why they still have not included this simple feature in their mobile or web clients.
... to this blog via RSS or JSON Feed? Say Hello at email@example.com :)
This is a test.
Customer Service is transforming sadness into happiness.
Thought experiment : what would be the price for Central Park if it became developable?
It's not as easy as it appears to calculate, as all the other surrounding buildings value would drop if the park disappeared. :-D
I found this estimate.
You can use your preferred pocket calculator.
Anil: The lost infrastructure of social media -- Very detailed overview of how services available during the blogs early days evolved until now.
I want my own blogging/aggregator software to work transparently with other blogging/aggregator software.
I should be able to :
Blogging software dropped the ball on Easy and Fun.
Because Easy is Hard. But if was Easy it wouldn't be Fun! :-)
For typing the previous links, i used the following Markdown syntax:
a mention of [Dave Winer] and [Doc].
The blogging software took care of converting this syntax to the correct HTML links.
This is the plain text equivalent of an autocomplete widget (like you have in Twitter or Facebook to autocomplete users names/usernames) :-)
So, if you want to use blogs or microblogs as an alternative to Twitter and similar networks, you need an easy way to manage mentions (the @jy stuff) and a global username (so there is only one @jy).
I now think a simple way to manage a global username is actually..... to not have a global username. How nice is that ?!? :-D
I don't think we need a global username system.
If I want to mention someone, for example Dave, I don't need a fancy global username system. See, I mentioned him in the last sentence without you realizing it, with a simple hyperlink to his blog. Awesome. :-)
So. Was it that easy Mister Feynman!?
OK not really. Now comes the actual work. All is in the UI. We need :
Well, that's The Plan.
Any comment welcome. As you cannot leave comments for now here (please come back in a couple years when I figured this out! :-D ), use any digital means you wish, including my email.
I now have a simple basic blog. You're reading it. A WYSIWYG editor, a Markdown one. It's pretty rad.
I also have a simple but working RSS Aggregator. It supports PubSubHubbub and RSS Cloud feeds so i can get their updates almost instantly. rad x2.
So what's next ?!
There's already code in there under the hood, but more work is needed.
It needs to be easy as shit, if you pardon my French.
To be continued.
Worse than ads, paid services that do also force ads on you.
Yes, I'm in a movie theater right now, waiting for The Secret Life Of Pets to start... :-)
So, after starting blogging in march 2001, and switching to Twitter over the time like everyone and their dog, i'll try blogging again.
This is my new experimental blog and playground for trying new things. Feel free to subscribe, but if there's no subscriber it's fine too. :-)
