Morning coffee notes

Thursday, April 05, 2007 by Dave Winer.

A picture named accordion.gifFollowing up on yesterday's post about imbalance in Twitter, I think it's basically a pub-sub environment. Probably would be a good idea to adopt that terminology. So "friend" becomes subscriber. Someone who is being followed is a publisher. On the other hand, it would be hard, at this stage, to try to change the terminology without creating massive confusion. Permalink to this paragraph

The problem with April Fools posts is that if they work, they damage your integrity, and if they don't (the usual case) they show how pathetic you are.  Permalink to this paragraph

I figured out what I want from Technorati -- in addition to finding blog posts that comment on my posts, or ones lots of people are pointing to, or blogs that have lots of inbound pointers, I'd like it to find me interesting stuff that not many other people are reading. Thoughtful articles written by people who know what they're talking about. Not the usual mindless repetitive stuff that perpetuates top positions on various lists. I want ideas, stimulation, food for thought.  Permalink to this paragraph
