It's even worse than it appears.. now has 250 items per tab, where previously there was a limit of 100. I wanted more news. #
I couldn't be happier that an open microblogging site is booming after spending a full year developing FeedLand. Timing couldn't be better. I love that there are users who are excited about the software I make.And I truly appreciate Elon Musk for letting them all go.#
  • These days my questions are in this order:#
    • Do they support RSS?#
    • Do they support <source:markdown>?#
    • Do they support <cloud>?#
  • If they check those three boxes they are my friend! 💥#
  • Even two are pretty coooooool. 😎#
  • And honestly I'd be pretty happy with one. 😄#
  • There are lots of news sites covering developments at Twitter.#
  • Are there any news sites focusing on Mastodon?#
  • I'd like to create a category for them in FeedLand. #
  • Shared publicly of course.#
  • What kind of news?#
    • new developments in the system software #
    • new apps from developers#
    • ideas for the future#
    • who are the users#
    • unique applications#
  • I've been around a number of big platforms when they were new, starting with the Apple II, then the IBM PC, Mac, Windows, the web, RSS, podcasting...#
  • When they're new is when the news is interesting and exciting. #
  • The best journalists want to be covering it, and we want them.#
  • I'm trying to think but nothing happens!#

You know those obnoxious sites that pop up dialogs when they think you're about to leave, asking you to subscribe to their email newsletter? Well that won't do for Scripting News readers who are a discerning lot, very loyal, but that wouldn't last long if I did rude stuff like that. So here I am at the bottom of the page quietly encouraging you to sign up for the nightly email. It's got everything from the previous day on Scripting, plus the contents of the linkblog and who knows what else we'll get in there. People really love it. I wish I had done it sooner. And every email has an unsub link so if you want to get out, you can, easily -- no questions asked, and no follow-ups. Go ahead and do it, you won't be sorry! :-)
