These are exactly the sorts of things that we’re thinking about for Known right now, and they’re some of the things that keep me up pondering at night as we decide how our own interactions should work. We’re building out a feed reader of sorts for Known right now to add more glue to the decentralized network that sites on Known form. With this greater social connectivity comes greater opportunity to cross-site sharing, replying, favoriting, etc.
I’m also one of those people who occasionally puts out an old-fashioned manual retweet. Sometimes I like the opportunity to inject my own brief commentary, and I use tools to save an archive of my tweets that will capture my manual retweets but not regular retweets. I’m conscious of my parents’ reaction when non-manual retweets came out: “Why is this random person showing up in my timeline when I don’t follow them?”
With favoriting, I recognize that some people use it as a way to show appreciation and some people use it as a way to mark items that they might want to save and return to. Instagram only really considers the first behavior with their liked posts, which I didn’t realize until much later. After building up what I thought was an inspiring collection of liked images that I could return to in the future, I realized my favorites are a) not straightforward to find in Instagram and b) not archived forever. I don’t know how many liked posts Instagram displays for users, but for me it only goes back about 3 months.
Having a very hard time finding a place to stay in NY for a week that isn't expensive. Total nonresponse from AirBnB potentials doesn't help
@aaronpk We had a Mini convertible last month in LA. Tiny open car plus big 405 traffic is an interesting experience.
What are your favorite tools, readers, or apps for consuming feeds (RSS or otherwise)?
Highs of 65°, misty rain, sweaters and scarves. I'm still waiting for summer to settle in.
If this whole 3D printed food thing takes off, I hope someone comes up with a non-Spam Spam alternative.
@benwerd Your strategy sounds more motivating than my current strategy of "no laundry, no code."
