Has anyone found any indication of an API as part of Threads?#
I've been developing a new thread-authoring and publishing tool for Bluesky. Looking for people who are good at reporting bugs to try it, report on the experience. Looking for deal-stoppers, important things that don't work. If you have time today to try it, please send email. Thanks!#
Maybe the inflation was caused by disruptions in the supply system due to Covid. Maybe all we had to do was wait for the system to come back online, modulo the greed of businesses to increase profits with the air cover of "oh it's the inflation you know."#
Does Facebook with their new "threads" social network plan to fill the API Gap left by Twitter kicking the devs under the bus? Will Facebook love devs more?#
  • No web browser interface?#
  • Tons of bugs! Surprising they shipped in this shape.#
  • Bait and switch -- ActivityPub support real soon now. #
  • I don't like Facebook the company. "Meta" is bullshit. #
  • If they don't get a browser interface I doubt if I'm going to be a regular.#
  • Yes I know the kids think browsers are for boomers. I don't care.#

  • I wonder what dogs think fireworks are.#
  • I tell you what I think -- I think they're boring and stupid, and when the climate crisis is in full swing we'll look back and wonder how we came up with the idea of adding more smoke to the air as entertainment. #
  • I went to the fireworks in NY harbor in 1976, the 200th birthday of America. It was supposed to be this amazing thing. I thought meh. What. Why? Bullshit!#
  • The answer is of course before tv, radio, videogames, social networks, air travel, space travel, fireworks were exciting technology displays.#
  • Today? No.#

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! :-)
