"That's why I like doing things like this. It helps us see how different things are in different places. Today was unusually crowded on the path." - Dave Winer

Re: The Personal Blog -
"Thanks for this Fred. Blogging is important, and doing it in someone else's namespace doesn't cut it. You're a guest. On your own blog you are The Boss, and the buck starts and stops with you. And if you don't like what the technology is doing to you, you can move. If you're writing under someone else's name, you're stuck with them." - Dave Winer
Re: Posting to WordPress and Facebook -
"This post explains the project. Basically the API has the ability to update posts, the docs in this case have not kept up with the service. There's a link on that page to a bit of sample code that shows you how to do it. What software are you hooking up to FB?" - Dave Winer

"But the writing doesn't have to live on for them to do that. They could find readers for my writing without me having to lock my writing into their space. They're doing you the big favor of finding you readers in exchange for the lock-in. BTW, I've tried out that theory, and it didn't work for me. My ideas get no more exposure on than they do anywhere else. It's really up to me to promote my writing, where ever it lives. I learned this lesson, as did many others, years ago on Huffington Post, where they had the same pitch. Create your content here and we'll get you readers. I did eventually get a hot piece on Huffington, but they basically took all the flow and redirected it to their directory of pieces on the topic I was writing about. So even when I win, I didn't really win. That was the last piece I posted to their site. From then on, it was just my blog. These days, however -- I do write stuff for posting on Facebook because there are more readers there, and..." - Dave Winer

Re: How the storage system should work -
"You're very right, the data is named. I will update this immediately. I didn't look at my Twitter code as I was writing this. Bad Dave." - Dave Winer

"Save is supposed to be enabled initially. It saves when you click the Save button. Remember this is a demo app. Not trying to achieve perfection, just to show the feature is there and it works." - Dave Winer

Re: The dog days of summer -
"Basically if you post a comment that asks a question that's answered in the second paragraph of the post you're commenting on, then the comment doesn't need to be here. You're just asking me to rewrite the post for you, and I don't think that's very efficient. ;-)" - Dave Winer

Re: An alternate view of Jay Rosen's demo -
"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
