Re: An alternate view of Jay Rosen's demo - http://scripting.com/2014...
"What I'm saying isn't that fancy -- I'm a friend of his, and I am following him on Facebook. I have a motto that says "don't slam the door on the way out" but it's always a conundrum. Would the person want to know why I'm unfollowing him? In the other cases, other friends I unfollowed because they were being excessively spammy, I said nothing. But I sense that Jay might have been doing it to make a point or to see what happens, and this is one of the thing that happens. People who really ARE your friends, unfollow you. I've done my bit, and let him know why I was unfollowing. I still get him on Twitter and subscribe to his feed. The only danger is that he might start using Facebook in a more personal way, and I'll miss that." - Dave Winer

"Very true about the people who jumped from the WTC. Also we've both lost our fathers, Joe -- my dad had a long decline, he decided to die. He could have lived a while longer, maybe even a few more years. But he chose to go out on his own terms before life became (to him) pointless. And I had plenty of time to talk with him about it, and try to understand." - Dave Winer

"We don't have to know, because we can't and obviously life will go on without our knowing." - Dave Winer

"Sure, I never meant to imply otherwise. But I have no insight into that part of his life. I only knew him as an entertainer." - Dave Winer

"Technically it's possible, but it's not clear how it would work from a user interface standpoint." - Dave Winer

Re: Why do we fear death? - http://scripting.com/2014...
"Woody Allen has a lot to say about death. http://www.brainyquote.com/quo... The one I always think of: "I am not afraid of death, I just don't want to be there when it happens."" - Dave Winer

"Yes it is, but I don't think we're very close to listening to people about this stuff, esp with men. We're supposed to tough it out, be strong and silent, man up. That only works so long. I think by the time you get to 63, it really gets hard to hold it all in." - Dave Winer

"I don't sell any software through the app stores. Apple's store controls what the apps can do, and I don't want to live with their restrictions, so I just opt out." - Dave Winer

Re: My blog doesn't need HTTPS - http://scripting.com/2014...
"The spammers will jump this hurdle in a second, it's their business model. They must love the idea of something so simple to bump up their search rank. Proves that Google is way too sure of themselves. If they had some real competition they would never pull a stunt like this." - Dave Winer

"It doesn't "force" you to google, it nudges you to a big tech company to host your stuff with their domain." - Dave Winer

Re: My blog doesn't need HTTPS - http://scripting.com/2014...
"And your time. It's one more thing you have to do to keep going. Running a site already takes too much time. Every bit of complexity has a cost, and can break, and eventually with enough you just say fuckit and let Google host your stuff." - Dave Winer

Re: My blog doesn't need HTTPS - http://scripting.com/2014...
"Once you use their domain to point to your writing, you can't move it off their server without breaking links. I thought I explained that pretty well in the piece." - Dave Winer

Re: The "source" namespace - http://source.smallpict.com/2014...
"I wanted to use a different name, I didn't feel "microblog" conveyed what we were doing. It's not really up for discussion, if you want to use microblog, or call it something else entirely, you're free to do that. As to what you're missing? You probably could have left that question out, because I have no insight into what you're missing. I've never even met you." - Dave Winer

Re: An icon that means Publish - http://scripting.com/2014...
"That's correct. But in a conversation with the developer of Font Awesome on Twitter, he said he would add it. I wasn't expecting such a positive response, but I am willing to take Yes for an answer. ;-)" - Dave Winer

"You should definitely ask it on the list, because no one but me will see it here." - Dave Winer

"Glad you discovered the include feature in lists. It's also useful if you want to delegate, let other people run lists through your River4 server, without having to give them access to the S3 bucket." - Dave Winer

Re: An icon that means Publish - http://scripting.com/2014...
"Dave, thanks for coming to visit! ;-) I'll give these some more thought, but I probably would stick with the inverted P. It's a symbol that you see in publishing, and it is a P, which helps. It's the closest -- even though it already has another meaning (as do all the other possibilities). Dave" - Dave Winer
