1. Aral Balkan: @BarnabyWalters …maybe ‘articles’ would be a better name for ‘notes’ and ‘notes’ a better name for ‘scribbles’ :)

    @aral that would certainly be more consistent with the naming schemes @aaronpk, Tantek Çelik and myself are using, which we borrowed from the activitystrea.ms schema.

    It's great that you're self–hosting shorter units of content as well as longer articles now! Maybe tweets next? ;)

  2. URLs don't just give addressability, they give accountability. When there's a URL, someone is responsible for it. When a thing (concept, object, document, proposal, idea, etc.) has a URL, it can be discussed, supported, contested, referenced and documented.

    URLs are valuable things. We must treat them with respect.

  3. Rolled out usage of the menu element on . I’m looking forward to more browser support for HTML context menus, that will really open up the possibilities for cross-browser extensions

  4. Pushed some styling improvements to individual note pages as a result of some brainstorming earlier today. Splitting the content into Primary, Contextual, Metadata and Network will give me a solid foundation on which to add more information (e.g. mentions).

    One thing I haven’t added is an “actions” section, mainly because of double-click-to-edit. That only applies to the main content, though, and I have some other actions like syndicate to facebook, so I should make a section for those.

  5. Abigail Harrison: Hashtags: do people really use them to discover? Hands-up people.... maybe social media people do and 'normal' people don't? #twittersci

    .abigailH hashtag discovery usage is low because of Twitters anaemic implementation. See Diaspora for a great, well-used implementation.
