Facebook’s land grab of comments got me thinking about Disqus and other commenting systems. Clearly we need open standards for comments which we’d all adhere to – which could bridge across platforms like Twitter and Facebook. As new ‘like-ing’ and commenting systems appear – content vendors have to “keep up with the Joneses”, support yet another plug-in and so on and so on…………….. So why can’t we “aggregate” comments and store them in a comment format – and daisy chain these systems together? Users will benefit for sure – and memes can cross vendor boundaries. None of that was brought up at all in this post on the danger Disqus is in – right now.
Looks like Facebook is starting to suck less – it hasn’t arrived for me yet – but this will be the first time may actually have a decent customizable dashboard interface.
The very notion of a single format for mobile apps seems like blasphemy its so obvious. That’s what the WAC format is. The First phone to support WAC – NetPhone is coming out – in the Philippines. It’s Android 2.2.
Monetizing reputation can never happen. No matter what attempts are being made – or shall be made – unless you cut the user’s directly into the equation – and share some of the wealth – it ain’t gonna happen.
Congrats to SpeakerText for getting funded! We use it to transcribe our video interviews!
Who ever said Synergy is dead? HP has trademarked it. I just wonder if they think their turn-key, unified messaging, touch on this and magic happens WebOS is open or closed? Can I modify the source? make contributions? Can competitive web platforms like JolliCloud support their standards, or vice versa? How well will they play with iOS, MS-OS or Facebook? It is nice to see that HPs purchase of Palm wasn’t just a waste of money! Their stock will go up – on sheer chutzpah!
Lessons from he past, Ken Olsen and going horizontal - though I think in regards to social networking – its time to STAY niche and vertical!
