Podcast: An open voicemail to my longtime friend Guy Kawasaki, who wants to meet up with people on LinkedIn. I say come play with us on Mastodon. The difference is I can make software for you that plugs in beautifully on Mastodon, without limits, it's a "platform with no platform vendor." I will never be able to make software for you that works in LinkedIn. Lots of analogies. And I am as usual far too long-winded. #
We've learned that you can't compete with Twitter on Twitter. I wonder how broad that is and where the lines are, if there are any. I also seems inevitable that Musk/Twitter will sue users, not just suspend them. #

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! :-)
