Re: Chrome clipboard and debugger breakage - http://scripting.com/2014...
"Thanks for the tip. That'll be useful even if there wasn't breakage in the browser." - Dave Winer
Re: The "source" namespace - http://source.smallpict.com/2014...
"Just one. The idea is that it's the source code for the element." - Dave Winer
Re: The frenzy of online - http://scripting.com/2014...
"Glad I'm not the only one who thinks so. It's pathetic. They've decided you're in their "market" but they're supposed to be your friend. You're getting a "message" instead of friendship. This is the inverse of the Cluetrain. Instead of corporations acting as if they had a soul, human beings are acting like corporations, in a maudlin way, because it's entirely profitless. Scoble, on Facebook, writes about two things: Scoble and Facebook. So tell me, what do I get from being part of his horde? All I can see is that I get to feel like I'm part of a horde. Which is what I want to run away from." - Dave Winer
Re: Chrome clipboard and debugger breakage - http://scripting.com/2014...
"When it happens it happens in all circumstances. There are no workarounds short of force-quitting the browser, and starting over with all my tabs. But even then it often doesn't work, even after a reboot of the machine." - Dave Winer
Re: The "source" namespace - http://source.smallpict.com/2014...
"%lt;source:outline> is only a sub-element of <item>. It never appears outside the context of an item. Can you show me the example you're referring to? Which feed? I have several. ;-)" - Dave Winer

"Nothing like that. I'm very wary of such extensions for exactly this reason. ;-)" - Dave Winer
Re: A store I'd like someone to operate - http://scripting.com/2014...
"Yes, the whole system would have to be managed by entities at least as reliable as registrars. I initially asked the people at hover.com to do this, because I trust them with my domains, I felt comfortable asking my customers to trust them with managing the sub-domains. The point is to try to create a system where the individual authors don't have to trust tech companies with Web 2.0 business models to not screw up our work with their business models. Why do you (not you personally) trust Medium to store your writing? Have they made any commitment to continue hosting it, unmodified, for any period of time?" - Dave Winer

"Apparently not. I'll add that to the list of things people want in the product." - Dave Winer
Re: Chrome clipboard and debugger breakage - http://scripting.com/2014...
"These are not optional or peripheral features. For a developer not having a debugger is like trying to fly a 747 without instruments. The whole process completely doesn't work. I'm resorting to debugging techniques I used when I was developing on an Apple II. Unfortunately the app I develop is far more complex than what I used to work on back then. So when the debugger doesn't work, my work slows to a crawl, and bugs get by me that show up much later in the process. What is up with this. Maybe I have some kind of virus. I can't believe other people are experiencing this and not completely fed up." - Dave Winer

"No. A nice Internet user respects other people's space. You can however tack it onto your home page. ;-)" - Dave Winer

Re: Radio3 0.53 has a simple API - http://radio3.smallpict.com/2014...
"I'm glad you all like this. I have more ideas for APIs. This is great. ;-)" - Dave Winer
Re: Radio3 v0.56 has a deeper API - http://radio3.smallpict.com/2014...
"Yes, I'm aware of that, and spent quite a bit of time trying to get jQuery to do exactly that. But it didn't work. With the content-type as application/json it would do really bizarre things with the payload (didn't actually figure out what they were doing). So my choice was to either not ship the feature, or wait until I figured it out (if it's possible) or re-do part of what jQuery is doing -- or ship it as-is. I decided the last option was the best, because it would allow you to go forward with implementation. Now, if this is a deal-stopper for you, let me know and I'll up the priority of finding a workaround." - Dave Winer
Re: Radio3 v0.56 has a deeper API - http://radio3.smallpict.com/2014...
"Right now Radio3 doesn't do HTML in the big text box. It's not in the vocabulary of any of the products we support, at least not at this time. So it's just plain text, no markup. Which is good, because going forward anything can be added. The hard stuff, I've found, is taking stuff out. ;-) Brandon is welcome, this is an open thread, the feature is public." - Dave Winer
Re: It's great that users care now - http://scripting.com/2014...
"Right now, the answer is simply to post using a tool like Radio3, which can post to the corporate networks as well as to the open Internet. So we get a chance to use your links to bootstrap a new open network. You sacrifice nothing, your posts still go to your current subscribers. That's the outline of the plan." - Dave Winer

"That's great! I love it when things work because of open standards. ;-)" - Dave Winer
Re: Radio3 0.53 has a simple API - http://radio3.smallpict.com/2014...
"I don't know what that would do? Since Radio3 is not a server based product, you'd have to talk to the app running in your browser on your desktop. That's new ground as far as I know." - Dave Winer
Re: Thanks MacWorld! - http://scripting.com/2014...
"Ooops! :-( I fixed the bug. Nice to "see" you." - Dave Winer

Re: So I'm siding with Gruber - http://scripting.com/2014...
"I'm sure it would be, but it's a dream. Markdown is deployed. Even if there's a GREAT spec that everyone agrees with (a tall order, esp considering how the politics of this is being managed) it still wouldn't get you what you want. There are millions of Markdown documents out there. Who's going to edit all those to make them conform to your spec? You have to think this stuff through, past your wishes, to how it would happen. This dream of yours just can't happen." - Dave Winer
Re: So I'm siding with Gruber - http://scripting.com/2014...
"Exactly! To me, both as a user and a developer, it's about tools that work for people." - Dave Winer

"I thought about that too, and for now it costs almost nothing to go ahead and get the bitly links. Maybe we'll think of something to do with them later. ;-)" - Dave Winer
