1. The problem with all mapping software ever:

    “Hm, that placename is a bit small to read” (zooms in) “TEXT, WHY U GET SMALLER AGAIN”

  2. Finally decided that symfony Security component is way too complicated for my little , so ditching it — but I’ve learnt a lot from digging through it and my further efforts will try to provide some of the amazing flexibility it gives whilst being more performant and easier to understand #php

  3. I really can't stress just how brilliant the identengine.com API is. Solves so many problems, implements so many standards, but more importantly: it is truly, truly webby. Forming a graph of a persons profiles by following rel links, then accumulating all that info is a vital building block. Great work Glenn Jones!

  4. Made some updates to my note autolinking flow — instead of lots of unstable regexes, only one runs now (courtesy of cassis) and the rest manipulate the XML–compatible HTML which results. Much more robust, much more extendable

  5. Aral Balkan: So http : // twitter . com / @aral (sans spaces, of course) is a valid URL. If clients used it as a mention we’d have fully-qualified names.

    Aral Balkan current rough consensus is to use URLs as nouns, pingback (or webmention) as notification infrastructure.

    Personally I am doing some rather more complex stuff where I author notes using @-names, which get parsed by @cassisjs into .h-x-username twitter.com-linked anchors, then I transform those into .h-card’s with data either from my contacts DB (at the mo mirrored from my personal CardDAV share) or from the identengine.com API for people I don’t know. Then all the links in a note get sent pingbacks.

    Fat chance of twitter implementing that though ;)

  6. Jovian Salak: @BarnabyWalters It's like cheese - all it takes is a couple of drops of lemon, and BOOM, milk becomes curds! Okay, maybe not best e.g...

    Jovian Salak “BOOM”? I would be concerned if milk made that noise when mixed with lemon!
