"Remember I've been down this path twice, with Manila and Radio UserLand. The reason it'll work better with MyWord is that the UI will stay focused on the new user, and the complexity will add out from a simple core, where the things newbies want to do quickly are the only things that are in your way, so it's hard to miss. WordPress made a fundamental mistake, imho, in the way they organized the UI. They spread it all out uniformly. As a result you have to dig through lots of layers of UI to find things that are very commonplace. I know this well because I've coached a few low-tech users through using WordPress, and I myself have a low tolerance to complexity and get overloaded quickly. WordPress gave up on the battle against complexity at startup. Once you've built your functionality tree that way, you can't really change it. I know that because I've made those mistakes myself, in the early days with Frontier. You don't want to go too fast just because you can. The mistakes you make..." - Dave Winer

"I agree with you up to the last point. We need Twitter's identity, because it's a no-brainer for Twitter users. They just need to trust me, and the software, not to trap them or their ideas. What we use for identity only matters insofar as it's not an impediment to people using it. That's why Twitter is the right choice." - Dave Winer

"Chris, that's what I've found out too. You can't work with VCs. They won't take any risks on open ecosystems, but they are happy to profit from closing them after you go to the expense and trouble to create them. They basically are parasites. The answer is very simple, work with other people like yourself. I am one of them. ;-) I keep having to learn this lesson, btw. I wrote about it in the closing paragraph of a blog post I wrote 18 years ago. http://scripting.com/davenet/1... My pitch to programmers, which is far more revolutionary than any programming language or operating system can be, is to look for understanding where you find it, work with people you want to work with, and don't waste time with people who won't listen and aren't grounded in the truth." - Dave Winer

"It basically would be a poor substitute for a web page with JavaScript. People idealize Hypercard, but it was bitmap graphics on a very low-rez low CPU bandwidth machine. The web is hardly ideal, there are lots of ideas from the 80s that should be in the web as standards, but Hypercard, imho, doesn't have any of it." - Dave Winer

It'll be that it's the best blogging system. This is something I know about, and I'm not happy with the way blogging tools have evolved." - Dave Winer
