Re: DLD 2015: It’s Just the Beginning - http://continuations.com/post...
"It's a talk I've given at a few conferences :) If you have time in the morning today (or early PM), I can deliver it in person. If not, I'll have to write a blog post!" - Julien

"There are a lot of great ideas in this. One of my "pet peeves" is that we're going from a world organized around space (which is scarce!) to a world around time (unlimited as far as we know)." - Julien

Re: If RSS is dead, why are podcasts so popular? - https://www.usv.com/post...
"It does make a lot of sense indeed and the place of RSS *is* behind the scene. I heard that Facebook may be working on RSS-related product and I'm surprised Twitter still isn't doing anything on this front. More than social tools, I believe Facebook and Twitter are "consuming" platforms: they want their "timelines" to be your homepage. Implementing RSS (the right way!) would of course enable that." - Julien

"That's also one of my fears... but I have to to say that, the "elephant in the room" iTunes has been less detrimental to the ecosystem than Google Reader/Feedburner have been for text-based RSS." - Julien

Re: - Thisisgoingtobebig.com - Turns at Albuquerque: How I Measure My Career - http://www.thisisgoingtobebig.com/blog...
"Great post! I'm all for measuring, but use a consistent "ruler" :) Too often, we use different criteria before and after we do changes. Sometimes, people view income as a proof of success when their goal was to get an influential role... and other times we tend to dismiss actual success on a scale because we value something else more with time." - Julien

Re: How important is the homescreen? - http://bijansabet.com/post...
"Talking about the homescreen, have you seen this post? Yes, the homescreen is incredibly important these days... in the same way that that the "portails" are/were very important in the early 00'.... but these days, timelines (Twitter's, Tumblr's, Facebook's...) are probably more popular when it comes to attention." - Julien

"It's good to see you pushing the ball forward... however, I'm a little skeptic and I feel like the UI is getting more and more complex. For example, the menu bar has many panels now.. and some of them may not be required or even conflicting? What's the difference between portfolio and and network? Also, maybe the about page is not in the right space? Also, on the side bar, is it actually required? On this page for example, the archive is probably not very useful (who clicks on 2006?), except maybe for SEO purposes?" - Julien

Re: Chef 12: Fix Untrusted Self Sign Certs - http://jtimberman.housepub.org/blog...
"Hey... we copied our certs over from the chef server to the new node that we're tyring to bootstrap but chef keeps complaining when doing the "knife ssl check": OpenSSL will not use the following certificates when verifying SSL connections: /root/.chef/trusted_certs/wildcard_superfeedr_com.crt: unable to get local issuer certificate Any idea what's going on?" - Julien

Re: Support services for the Indie Economy - http://www.nickgrossman.is/2014...
"Very insightful. What's fascinating to me is that the sharing economy players (I like the idea of "peers") are also self-dogfooding (eating their own dog food!) by also being themsevles consumers of the other services provided by their peers. How long till we see insurance companies built on the Uber or AirBnb model: where most "employees" are not employees anymore but contractor getting their job from an algorithm which sends them incoming calls, along with all required files to make the right decisions?" - Julien

"I'm not sure what is the best strategy. For now, I myself try to stay as "curious" as possible and give probably more chances than most people to new challengers. I also try to diversify the products I use and avoid the "platform" game where a single player controls multiple levels (application, OS, hardware). Opening the data is probably a first step, but would that be enough? Probably not... most people do not care (or have no *idea*) how to use this data. If I were to decide, I would push for interrop. For example, I would by law force Lyft and Uber to show each other's results if *the user wants to*. For the social web, I would force Twitter and Facebook to show each other's messages f the user wants to... etc. The same goes for the messaging platforms.... etc. It worked for the phones, the railways and the roads, why couldn't it work for the web as well?" - Julien

Re: Liberate Apps Through Protocols: Lets Update IRC! - http://continuations.com/post...
"Hum. XMPP has evolved a lot to adopt modern requirements of mobile devices :) But let's not start (yet another) protocol war: the web is great because anybody can play. And this is the exact definition of what a protocol is: speak the language and join the chat. Let's get rid of anything that builds barriers: ToS, API credentials, central "authority"... etc. This is what we need to see more open-ness and decentralization." - Julien
