1. 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.

  2. 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

  3. 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.

  4. 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.
