As I've had a few shots with 1999, first on cloudAtCost, next on 1999.io and now here, I've a few thoughs about the process of blogging.
Mostly in comparison to other systems. I am familiar with WordPress, pivot, tumblr, and a few other platforms.
John, this is Andy Sylvester. Any Twitter user can comment on a post (Dave Winer calls it "replies"). The same goes for likes, although I just tried to like this, and it didn't work. I have also added your RSS feed to a river displayed at http://1999bloggers.andysylvester.com/.
Andy, i notice the same issue: the "Like" thumb, which always worked like a champ on my previous comments, seemed not to work... But after a refresh, i see that both our likes on John's post have in fact registered.
Andy, Thanks and Thanks the river looks useful.
It is an interesting inversion of the normal control paradigm, in that this Twitter mechanism requires me to approve John's app for this limited use of my own Twitter account... but blog owner John has nothing to say about it (?!)
Hi Walt, I see some inconstancies on the like too. refreshing Safari doesn't always make them show for me. On the comments, it does feel a bit strange, no approval or moderation of comments. No notification either.
