Can I write a Scripting2 blog post here?
By Dave Winer on Saturday, February 05, 2011 at 4:03 PM.

This is a test to see if I can manage to write a Scripting2 blog post here in the instant outliner. Let me enumerate the things I would have to do to make that work. #

1. Add a New Post button to the "My Outline" window. A dialog appears asking the title of the post. It calls to the server the same way the button in the Scripting2 window does. If it works, a headline appears with your title in it. (You can of course change it whenever you like.) #

It must be a button. A right-click command applies to a headline that's already there.  #

2. Saving. Your changes would have to go to both servers, to the I/O server and to the Scripting2 server. This is going to be the tricky part.  #

It works. :-) #

The answer is yes indeed. I can write a blog post in the Instant Outliner.  #
