Instead of Reddit I use MetaFilter. Instead of Twitter I use Mastodon. I'm interested in what your other alternative platforms are? I'm also interested in platforms like MetaFilter that are designed/maintained by people that are trustworthy. These choices matter because I'm trying my best to be a part of a more ethical/social platform and still stay connected with a digital community. What are your recommendations?
We're your top prime cut of MeFi, We're your choice! Who here has run for office, and/or been elected, or is running for office on Metafilter? How has Metafilter affected or influenced your campaign platform, if at all? [more inside]
Having recently switched from Movable Type to b2, I was wondering how I can send a ping to changes.xml over at weblogs.com. b2 is flexible, easy to edit and most of all, a good learning tool for PHP but no ping option.
I have my head up mu culo. I have only just learnt of Blogger.com from todays post by Mr.Howie. I think I will make use of something like this, probably for professional promotion, touting my CV etc. Are there other sites more practial to my application? Any pitfalls i should be aware of?
While both deepleap and pyra are interesting applications can they withstand a business model test? I don't think so... From what I've heard, deepleap is scampering for investors but how do they plan on making money? Also the folks at pyra created the famous blogger but have yet to make any money? I ask the weblog community, especially Matt, does this make sense? While these web pioneers may get the web, and the people the met at sxsw get the web, I think they are missing a crucial factor... you must have a business model and not just a functional and useful application. What do you think?
