1. Jovian Salak: Microphone's arrived. Now all set for #Nepal. Just need to encourage some creative juices in advance. Not sure how this is done though...

    Jovian Salak alternate solution: we throw a DIY pizza party with recitals of Half Caste, as a joint leaving party

    Jovian Salak I know the solution: a farm nearby is selling a small hay bale (£3.50). Let’s buy it and roll it to the .

  3. Evan Prodromou: If you were thinking about Kickstarting an Open Source RSS reader, well, today's the day.

    evanp funny, I’ve been thinking of doing that for a while. Not sure I’ve got what it takes though, and I’m booked up for the next 4 months :/

  4. Jovian Salak: Yippee a new #pope. Why is everyone so excited? The new pope will still have to defend the *integrity* of a ridiculous religious corporation

    Jovian Salak u dissin pope? HE WHO WEARS POPE GEAR (large, medium or small), WHOSE COMING IN THE POPEMOBILE IS ANNOUNCED BY WHITE SMOKE? BOW BEFORE HIS POPE HAT

  5. Aral Balkan: So http : // twitter . com / Aral Balkan (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 ;)
