Here’s the place to find all Ryan’s posts about ReportingOn at the PBS IdeaLab blog.
Excited to see that the WordPress team is still working on Prologue. (Mildly annoyed it’s called P2, but that’s my problem.)
Grants that look like they might fund nonprofit community journalism initiatives.
Crucial stuff for anyone designing an application that they expect users to, y’know, use.
Thoughtful and mildly theoretical (or at the very least, psychological) notes for anyone building a social component to a network.
Notes on OAuth — Starting to make a lot of sense to me for ReportingOn auth purposes. Let RO access your Twitter info? YES.
“This lightweight Firefox extension places a small Yammer logo in the lower right corner of your Firefox browser. When new messages arrive, YammerFox pops up a small window displaying the message. You can click the Yammer logo to display a list of the last twenty messages, reply, or post new messages.”
Interesting method — run search.twitter.com feeds into a Yahoo Pipe and route that into Pligg, plus, spit a twitterfeed with a prefix back out to the mothership. Little to no code involved, but no database pivot points at the Pligg site (like usernames, tags, dates, etc.) I think.
Another Twitter-clone, but this time, create your microblogging network as one piece of a larger network of microblogging networks. Think: Ning.
Looks like a proprietary Twitter clone where you can restrict access to a given set of users.
